for everyone out there who tells me i am mr negative when it comes our mariano's in edgewater i am hear to tell you after a year they finally have improved.. it stared when the now former manager was transferred a few months ago and they were actually allowed to stock the shelves , though i will still not understand the idea of bringing your products in from wisconsin when you have 30+ stores in the chicago area.. i have found two great front end employees who take very good care of this senior, one i believe is the assistant manager who is allowed to do what is right with the former head manager gone...

so now you can not tell me i am always negative towards this store...

    By “price matching” I meant the practice of reducing one’s price for an item--on a one-off customer-by-customer basis--to match another store's advertised price which the customer can prove.

    By “price matching” I meant the practice of reducing one’s price for an item--on a one-off customer-by-customer basis--to match another store's advertised price which the customer can prove. Haven’t seen it at chain groceries, though some small specialty produce markets, farmers’ markets w/in 1/2 hr of closing, and the fruit-and-veg stands of my Brooklyn youth would engage in haggling to preserve customer goodwill.

    As to “Greek yogurt,” I never touch the lowfat or sweetened (almost always with starches and gums, HFCS or artificial sweetener) or fruited varieties. Of all the large commercially-available brands, only Fage makes it the way they do in Greece and the Middle East. (Until recently, it was imported from Greece but they’ve started making it here using the same techniques). Not sure who makes Aldi’s, nor how it’s made. I buy only the full-fat (whole milk) kind. Chobani, Oikos, etc. are just regular mass-market yogurts from which most of the whey has been strained. If I want fruit in my yogurt, I cut some fresh or unsweetened frozen fruit in.

    Target will match any advertised prices. Not grocery, but so will Best Buy (even Amazon prices)

Please Be on the Lookout for this Dog/Human on Kenmore or Winthrop..5400-5700 Blocks

Hi About 3-4 weeks ago I was walking on either Kenmore or Winthrop (I zigzag when I walk so unsure which) about the 5500 Block when I saw a man with a tan pitbull..either older puppy or young adult. He was SCREAMING at the dog and berating her. I attempted to talk with him but he walked away. I saw him again today in the 5700 block of Kenmore. Today he had the pitbull and a larger black dog.

Hi About 3-4 weeks ago I was walking on either Kenmore or Winthrop (I zigzag when I walk so unsure which) about the 5500 Block when I saw a man with a tan pitbull..either older puppy or young adult. He was SCREAMING at the dog and berating her. I attempted to talk with him but he walked away. I saw him again today in the 5700 block of Kenmore. Today he had the pitbull and a larger black dog. The poor pitbull looked like skin and bones and her eyes were watering and she was drooling big time and looked like she had just vomited. The "owner" was talking to a woman who was doing yard work and said he was taking the dog to the Vet on Monday as she has been vomiting and losing weight. I tried to tell him about the Emergency Vets but he would have no part of listening. When he left (walking southbound) I asked her if she knew him and she said no--she has only seen him around a few months. She did not seem like she wanted to get involved. The human was hispanic, I think mexican, I would say in his 30's, average build, maybe 5'7? straight black hair just above his shoulders. Today he had on a black fleece type jacket.

Does this man/dog sound familiar to anyone? I live in the area..but not right there so do not walk around there much. If anyone sees him and this dog and knows where he lives PLEASE contact ANTI Cruelty (or message me the info and I can do it) This dog was so underweight it is either very very ill or not being cared for and he was so apathetic about the whole situation.

  • EvaEdgewater long term Edgewater Resident

    Hi appearance..again I could be wrong but he looked Mexican ..I understand the question but I would like to focus on the dog(s) health. If in fact Hope is this dog (which I dont think she is) I am wondering if all those tests came back clear then what is the diagnosis? Why were eyes and nose running very badly and she looked like she just vomited?

  • Just because you rescue a dog doesn't make you a good dog owner. It's sad to see them go from one abusive situation to another. BTW, neglect is a form of abuse.

Whole Foods BBQ

Anyone else go to the Whole Foods Edgewater BBQ today? Other than the insanely chilly & windy conditions (glad I had gloves, wish I’d worn a hat), it was pretty good. Very long lines for the actual BBQ items (coleslaw and either very tasty pulled pork or deep-fried faux-chicken--making it tough for kosher low-carbers), but I didn’t see them run out of food. Band “The Samplers” was a tight blues-rock power trio, but turned up a tad loud for some...

Anyone else go to the Whole Foods Edgewater BBQ today? Other than the insanely chilly & windy conditions (glad I had gloves, wish I’d worn a hat), it was pretty good. Very long lines for the actual BBQ items (coleslaw and either very tasty pulled pork or deep-fried faux-chicken--making it tough for kosher low-carbers), but I didn’t see them run out of food. Band “The Samplers” was a tight blues-rock power trio, but turned up a tad loud for some seniors. Ran out of tote bags early on, but I’ve amassed a bunch anyway. Individual booths ranged from True Nature (very good-natured, considering), Farmed Here herbs/greens, Creminelli salamis, Metropolis (hot coffee was HIGHLY appreciated!), Sauce Kitchen, organic breads/sweets/vegan ice “creams” & sorbets, popcorn, Just Mayo, to community organizations such as Friends of Senn, Jackalope Theater, Care for Real, etc. Disappointed that there was no sneak-peek indoor tour, but I guess that with only 11 days to go till opening they must be hustling like mad to get it all done. Glad I skipped breakfast earlier!

  • I agree. My daughter and I went as well. They didn't have to do this for the community, but it was great that they did. The food was great, the samples were really nice, the music was wonderful, and everyone manning a booth was there with a SMILE.

    It was really nice to bring the community together for a cold but sunny great Saturday afternoon.

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    Sure brought some warmth and friendliness to counteract the wind chill! Nice to meet some of the purveyors and growers whose products we’ve been (and will keep) buying, get to know some more about certain neighborhood organizations, and meet so many neighbors we didn’t know we had. (Most of us walked there from within a few blocks’ radius).

ISO of Uber/Lyft Feedback

Hi

I have never taken an Uber or a Lyft. I have been hearing a lot of not so good things about UBER and when I search online read eben more negatives..including being overcharged, not getting Uber credits, some scary drivers etc. I haven't read or heard too much about Lyft..wondering what your experiences have been. Should I even try them or just stick to cabs?

  • Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably...

    Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably be an older car. I don't want to get into a flame war about uber and writing my distaste for the company (not drivers) would be a very long post. I will say it simply. Uber (not the drivers) is evil. Try to use lyft if you can. Everyone praising uber will be sorry when they get a stronger monopoly (which by the looks will happen)

  • I use Uber and like it much better than taxi cabs - much cleaner, doesn't smell awful, driver also doesn't smell awful, and driver doesn't talk nonstop and loudly on his phone.
