Blaming Labor Costs And Tax Hikes, Cantina 1910 Closes

To say that Cantina 1910 has had a wild ride since opening less than a year ago, seems appropriate. The much anticipated launch of the upscale Mexican restaurant at 5025 N. Clark St. back in September 2015, transformed the old T’s bar/restaurant into a new modern space. Though the restaurant gained quick praise from area food critics, the […]

  • Tovi RP resident for 8 years, triathlete

    Mr. Whiskers, it wasn't the owners who critiziced, it was the food critics who blasted Yelp reviewers. I'm sad to see it closed. It was a beautiful space and the food was delicious. I hope its taken over by some other concept and given new life.

  • mroper54 Resident and local business owner.

    Rob is on the money. 8,000 other bars, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs have somehow found a way to keep their doors open in the exact same compensation, regulation and taxation environment. It is a disingenuous excuse and rather insulting to the staff who worked hard to make this place succeed.

Local Hotspot Big chicks Inducted Into the LGBT Hall Of Fame

Where did well-known bar and restaurant owner Michelle Fire get her club’s name from? Years ago, Michelle took a memorable trip to India. Locals could not pronounce her first name, so they just called her ‘big chick.’ She took that name and made it her own, eventually giving her bar the same name. Over 30 years have past now and […]

Saying Goodbye To 'Girlstown': Andersonville's Lesbian Population Shrinks

Longtime residents trace the influx of lesbian couples to one business: Women and Children First. The feminist bookstore moved from Halsted Street to 5233 N. Clark St. in the early 90s when Boystown became too expensive.

"There’s this hip quotient," said Hoffberg, President of Audience Logic, 5443 N. Broadway. "When I’m with old friends from growing up [in Winnetka], who remained up there, their favorite conversation is restaurants they’ve gone to in Andersonville. It’s hip to them."

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

Women and Children First founders Ann Christophersen and Linda Boubon opened their original store at 922 W. Armitage Ave. in 1979, where they set out to "promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests."

    Saying Goodbye To 'Girlstown': Andersonville's Lesbian Population Shrinks
    ANDERSONVILLE - The neighborhood that once was a hub for Chicago's lesbian community - known to many as "Girlstown" - is now home to more married gay men than hitched gay women, data shows. For longtime Andersonville residents and business owners, this is not a surprise.

  • I once went to a family reunion of Swedes at my 'mormors'...it was at dusk, and the natural sunlight that had been flooding the room(s) was fading and no lights were yet turned on. All I could see from the living room into the dining room was the oldsters and blue, blue eyes crackling back. They were glistening. I'm loathe to use this overused word, but it was amazing. This from one of the brown-eyed kids.

  • Wazzup not available

    re- the Swedes were among the first Gay people on earth.

    That's because they are some of the best looking people in the world - blond hair, blue eyed, thin - "what's not to like!" -

    In my next life I'm coming back a Swede.
