Pothole repair - Loud metal cover over pothole at Berwyn/Sheridan

The city recently put three giant metal plates over pot holes on Berwyn between Sheridan & Kenmore. The plates make a bang every time a car or bus (especially loud when it's a bus) go over it. Does anyone know how long I can expect to deal with listening to cars crash over the metal plates?

  • I know its a super annoying situation, but this popped into my head when I saw this post. From animated movie, circa 1981 called Heavy Metal. :)

    This sounds like a temporary fix - but if it's causing noise that's loud enough to interfere with sleep, you should contact the Alderman's office. Pot holes large enough to require a cover should have been filled long ago.

Stolen bike

Hi new neighbors! It didn't even take me a full 5 days living in the city to have my BIKE STOLEN! It was locked up at the Loyola Red Line stop (near Sheridan and Devon) all day while I was at work today, and when I got off the train, the front tire and the lock were still attached to the rack and the rest was gone (I know I didn't lock it up right). I've already filed a police...

Hi new neighbors! It didn't even take me a full 5 days living in the city to have my BIKE STOLEN! It was locked up at the Loyola Red Line stop (near Sheridan and Devon) all day while I was at work today, and when I got off the train, the front tire and the lock were still attached to the rack and the rest was gone (I know I didn't lock it up right). I've already filed a police report (not very encouraging) and registered on the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry. If anybody has any more ideas/resources/advice/etc, please get in touch. If nothing else, please be cool and share this. It would be much appreciated.

MAKE: FELT
MODEL: VERSA PATH 2
COLOR: GREY
ACCESSORIES: BLACK BACK RACK, ROYAL BLUE BOTTLE HOLDER

The front tire will be different, since it was not stolen with the rest of the bike.

iPad Finger Paintings Capture Chicago at Night (VIDEO)

Today, Connell sells prints of his iPad "finger paintings" at the Andersonville Galleria, 5247 N. Clark St., and at weekend festivals like the Glenwood Ave Arts Fest.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

Connell has captured beloved Chicago spots like the The Green Mill, Wiener Circle, Heartland Cafe and Central Camera. His favorite image, so far, is of the Chicago B.L.U.E.S. Bar at 2519 N. Halsted St.

Since launching the "Chicago Night" series, Connell said he's received requests to capture diners or bakeries from people's childhoods. Prints of Dinkel's Bakery, 3329 N. Lincoln Ave., have done especially well.

Looking for vet recommendation

Hi all,

Just moved back to the area with my two cats, and one of them is acting funny and I'm afraid she may be sick. I would appreciate any vet recommendations for affordable veterinary care...a plus if they also use holistic and alternative medicine.

Thanks!

  • I took my cat to Dr. Mitchell when he worked at Jewell Animal Hosp in Lincoln Square and he was great. I see now that he is at Pets First. I can't speak to that clinic specifically but Dr. Mitchell is great, he thoroughly explained my cat's heart condition and kidney problems to me and helped me understand all the options. I recommend Dr. Mitchell.

  • For years, my cats have been tended to at Near North Animal Hospital on Wells, just north of the corner of Wells & Division.
