    SAVOR The Columbus Tap; Big Gay Brunch - Gay Lesbian Bi Trans News Archive - Windy City Times
    Columbus Tap ( 200 N. Columbus Dr.; ColumbusTap.com ) is a new gastropub at The Fairmont Chicago that just opened in April and that has an unmistakable masculine vibe-one that my dining companion ( a female ) also picked up on immediately, down to the strong decor and the overwhelmingly male patronage.

    Streetsblog Chicago
    Transit-oriented development is a sensible way to build housing. Creating dense housing within a short walk of transit stations, without a lot of off-street parking makes it easier for more people to live without having to own a car. It leads to fewer newcomers bringing autos into neighborhoods, which reduces congestion and pollution.

On Spaulding between Palmer and Dickens: was walking my dog, when a loose pit bull spotted us across the street and ran quickly over and began biting and growling at my dog. I pulled my little guy back, and I guess yelled something in panic at the other dog and then he spurted back to the other side of the street. Some random lady was blazing it up (this was at 930-10am) a few yards from the dog and I asked her if it was hers, and she just stared at me and kept puffing away. I think I've seen her before, and someone who saw the incident said they had seen the dog before. I love all dogs, and have no issues with so-called aggressive breeds, but this one in particular was fast as hell and aggressive.
Posting because I'm not sure if anyone knows the owner (I think it was that woman), or if they've spotted this dog as well. However I just wanted to warn neighbors to maybe keep their pups close and be aware.

Called animal control once I got my dog back into the apartment but exactly two minutes later- the woman and the dog were gone.

  • Can I ask- was it around the Palmer/Spaulding/Dickens area? Sounds similar for sure. Thanks Brad.

  • It was at Drake / Wrightwood. I didn't see anyone with it, and it's highly doubtful anyone was given it was sniffing around in the alley. Very scary encounter, and like you I am very comfortable with dogs. I wasn't about to go up to it, but I tried calmly talking to it to see how it would react. It froze and looked at me for a few seconds, then it barked loudly and charged at me.
