Elizabeth using Kickstarter launch two new culinary concepts

According to the fundraising page's description, the two miniature restaurants will share a small space at 2928 N. Broadway. Regan said the idea to use it as a multipurpose area came as an afterthought when they considered that the bakery would operate only during the day.

    My brother took his last breath in one of the apartments above Hydrate. It was very painful for him to live in that space for what he knew would be the last place he would live. The loud bass of the music went through his brain and body like fists. At the time the bar was Christopher Street. My brother was part of the leather community. Christopher Street was not a leather bar then. He spent his last week of life in that apartment. My brother had AIDS and had been released from St Joseph's hospital to live out the remaining time of his life. He vowed that it would be a leather bar after he passed on. Not too long after John passed Christopher Street was gone. And the replacement was a leather bar.

    Success to you in your endeavors.

  • I used to live in a place in Boystown that was ridiculously loud and the music was crazy. I moved. My HiV had not progressed to become AIDS, but I knew what was a toxic environment and I got out of there. Your explanation of your brothers last days seems...

    I used to live in a place in Boystown that was ridiculously loud and the music was crazy. I moved. My HiV had not progressed to become AIDS, but I knew what was a toxic environment and I got out of there. Your explanation of your brothers last days seems a little vague, but I hope he went in peace and I hope he would be happy to know that the bar that is now home to Hydrate was the leather bar named Manhole for many years. Peace be with him.

Does anyone know what happened yesterday (Monday) around 12:45pm on Belmont? I was waiting for the Belmont bus, two guys were interacting...one white, young guy was yelling loud at the black guy with a white fur coat on that he made him lose $1000 and miss his flight, that he was "legit, a taxpayer" and the other guy was according to him " a drug dealer". He was making a phone call. Ten minutes later about eight cop cars (marked and unmarked) pull up and one detective goes into the internet cafe with his gun drawn. I saw the black guy being talk to by other cops on the street. My bus pulled up just then. It was intense. Lots of commotion. ???

    Hey Beebee, do you know what the name of that internet cafe was?

  • It seemed to close soon after the police stormed it Feb 5, 2013 (two years ago). Can't remember the name, but it had the word INTERNET in block letters across the front of it. It was just west of the alley in between Halsted and Clark on the northside of Belmont Avenue.
