City Shuts Waffles Cafe In Lakeview, Was Home To Wonuts

Waffles Cafe, 3611 N. Broadway, lost its business license last week after a $15,000 debt to the city went unpaid, according to the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.

If Waffles is gone for good, it'll leave some coveted Lakeview real estate up for grabs at Addison and Broadway. Previous incarnations include Istanbul Restaurant and North Coast Cafe in the strip of shops just one street over from Boystown and a brief walk from Wrigley Field.

Gang Territory in Lakeview

Does anyone know what's up with the thing hanging from the power line at the intersection of Clark and Orchard in Lakeview? Best I can guess is it's a skull and crossbones made of Bart Simpson. Does it have any meaning or just some silly "art".
