Development Update: Old Irving Park Row Home Project to Break Ground in October

...Park, the project will deliver 48 new single family homes to a large parcel at 3700 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Designed by Chicago's Pappageorge Haymes Partners, the homes have an understated yet contemporary feel...

  • Yes bland. Kind of like the homes further north on Milwaukee between Kenton and Kilpatrick were when they were first built. Over the years, however, the homeowners seems to have done a good job with different paint/siding/doors and landscaping to where they look a bit more unique and overall really nice. Perhaps the same will happen with these new homes over time. In any case, it'll be better than an empty factory or empty lot.

FIREWORKS. God Bless America

AMERICA! I support everyone’s right to explode fireworks and celebrate this great country’s Independence. On The Fourth of July! God Bless America! Unfortunately, some of my neighbors took remedial history and believe that the 4th of July starts in June.

It is hard to imagine how insensitive and inconsiderate one must be to live in a neighborhood and continually disturb the elderly, families with small children, and pet owners with endless barrage of fireworks leading up to the holiday and...

AMERICA! I support everyone’s right to explode fireworks and celebrate this great country’s Independence. On The Fourth of July! God Bless America! Unfortunately, some of my neighbors took remedial history and believe that the 4th of July starts in June.

It is hard to imagine how insensitive and inconsiderate one must be to live in a neighborhood and continually disturb the elderly, families with small children, and pet owners with endless barrage of fireworks leading up to the holiday and long past the holiday.

Most of us are happy to ooh and awe at fireworks on the 4th, spin a sparkler or two or light up the sky with Roman candles. And while many of us don’t really understand the value of digit-threatening firecrackers, we don’t stand in anyone’s way as they blast away, and we offer tolerance toward those who like the ear-numbing sounds of bombs and the smell of smoke. What we object to are the jokers who blast firecrackers after 11:00 p.m. and days before and after the holiday. These are the numskulls we must convince to step back from the celebration and find a shred of decency within themselves.This must be done in the name of the elderly, families with small children, pets and those of us who are less fond of sonic booms rocking our much needed beauty sleep.

If you know an offender maybe you could ask them to JUST STOP IT. If that doesn’t work other possibilities include enlisting a team Jehovah’s Witnesses willing to witness to them and show them the evils of their way on Sunday morning, kids that love to play “ding dong ditch” during the early morning and nap time, finding a witch who will stand outside their house in a black, the next time they have company and cast spells in their direction….I’m sure you have your own ideas. God Bless America.

Six Corners BBQ Fest

Any complaints or comments on this year's fest. Didn't get to go and was wondering how things went.

  • We loved it. We haven't been to a street festival in years, as we aren't crazy about massive crowds and in general the musical choices. This one was low-key, had decent BBQ and was just right. Plus, they had guitarra azul play on Friday nite! Terrific Spanish guitar band. Unfortunately,...

    We loved it. We haven't been to a street festival in years, as we aren't crazy about massive crowds and in general the musical choices. This one was low-key, had decent BBQ and was just right. Plus, they had guitarra azul play on Friday nite! Terrific Spanish guitar band. Unfortunately, there was a young and clearly inexperienced kid running the sound board who completely botched it. He didn't have the guitars coming out of the main speakers, so the lead guy had to turn his floor monitor outward so anyone could hear. It was the worst live sound I've heard in my life. He was jumping all over the board as if he was doing a DJ set. PLEASE if you're gonna have decent music, get someone who knows what they're doing to support it!

  • I was there Saturday during the day volunteering for the NVAM. Fewer vendors, smaller crowd, same overpriced food. $10 for a standard portion BBQ beef sandwich (which was good) and $5 for a root beer float that had about 50 cents worth of root beer. There was a Latino band and some dancers who were both good and a camel. We were only able to get a handful of people to come up to the museum.
