New Dollar Store

For all of you dollar store aficionados, and bargain hunters, like me, be sure to check out Everything Dollar on the corner of Broadway and Norwood, just across the street from the new Whole Foods. A wide selection of greeting cards, housewares and toiletries, all for a song! <LOL>

  • Darryl Grant Rogers Park resident since 2009

    I will tell the owner about this - I gather that you all left, What time and day? Thanks.

  • JohnL Retired old foggey.

  • Just adopted from Treehouse. Great experience and great cat :)

  • Yay! Now, go do the Stray Cat Strut. I would (I did it last year), but I messed up my knee last weekend and walking 5K won't help! I drop off extra food there regularly. I have three furballs, and occasionally they're...um...fussy. Tree House gets the food at which they turn up their little noses.

  • ..and the doggies get a reduced rate from Revive?

    Actually, I was a regular patron at Revive until a year ago, with a terrific massage therapist, however, he lived in Naperville and the drive was silly. It's a very nice place.

  • OK, folks...go watch the super-doggies. The small ones are earnest in their efforts and the big breeds are impressive.

unleashed dogs

I am a recent dog owner and live in Edgewater. Each night I take my dog for a walk up to the grassy area near Ardmore/Hollywood beach. Inevitably, there has been an unleashed dog (or several dogs), who comes up and starts playing/jumping on my dog. And the vast majority of the time, the dogs do not respond to their owner's call...
Does anyone else experience this problem?
It makes it really difficult to train my dog when random unleashed dogs are abound. There is a dog beach about .5 miles away where dogs are allowed to be unleashed--why not go there?

  • The dog beach you speak of has eroded away. This may account for more unleashed dogs in unauthorized places. Please email the alderman about the dog beach! This may help remedy your situation. As a dog owner, it is disappointing that the dogs always have to be on leash until the beach is fixed.

  • Catherine Animal Care Giver and Personal Organizer

    If you found unleashed dogs every time you go, why not take your dog at a different time or to a different location?

    I keep my dog leashed 99% of the time, because he doesn't always get along with other dogs, so I'm also annoyed with dog owners who assume...

    If you found unleashed dogs every time you go, why not take your dog at a different time or to a different location?

    I keep my dog leashed 99% of the time, because he doesn't always get along with other dogs, so I'm also annoyed with dog owners who assume that just because their dog is friendly, nothing bad will happen. The best I can do is avoid where there's likely to be unleashed dogs, and if an owner insists on letting their dog approach mine, I verbally warn them to keep their dog away. I've learned that non-verbal signals, like shortening my dog's leash or even walking away aren't enough of a warning for some people.

Other notable bidders include Rogers Park's Hare Krishna temple, North Side Community Resources and Amistad Cristiana Chicago, a church on Ravenswood Avenue near Greenleaf Avenue.

Burning smell / smoke near Bryn Mawr and Ravenswood

Smoke and smells are so thick/strong, we had to shut off fans and AC. Been going on since before 11 am.
Visible smoke north of us (we are on Gregory). Not leaving house to investigate, but would love to know if anyone has had news on this.

  • Wow, rogerparker, make assumptions ever? I'm disgusted that you'd take the time out to post something not just unhelpful, but downright insulting, on what is supposed to be a community-building and neighbor-helping-neighbor website. I hope you never suffer from chronic respiratory illness or are homebound caring for a relative and looking to neighbors for assistance.
    Jim, thanks for offering an actual suggestion. Any idea if this will be a recurring weekend event?

  • W60660 Neighborhood blogger and activist

    Thank you, Johanna... it is always nice to know what is going on in and around the Andersonville & Edgewater communities. This blog serves and the eyes and ears of our neighborhood. Comments like what "rogerparker" post are nothing more than a cry of desperation for attention. Ignore him. Thanks for sharing!

Looking for pediatrician and general practitioner recommendation for Edgewater

Our family is moving to Edgewater next week and we want to establish care for our 15 month old son (and ourselves eventually!). Do you have any recommendations? Much appreciated!

  • We live in Edgewater and our 6 year old daughter has been a patient and Town and Country Pediatrics since she was 2 weeks old. We typically travel to their location in Lincoln Park (easy access off the Lake Shore Drive). This is a large practice, with fantastic staff and very convenient hours, including early mornings, evenings, and Saturdays and Sundays.

  • My daughter also sees Dr. Minkus in Lincolnwood and we love him. I've also heard multiple rave recommendations for the practice at Ravenswood and Wilson from people who really like being able to have the whole family go to the same place.
