Pub 626

I noticed the space that used to be Bullhead Cantina has re-opened as Pub 626. Saw some beer signs in the windows and a dry erase board saying "open" outside the door. Anyone know anything about the new concept?

  • Cody Mac mixicologist

    Is that the official comment from the Rogers Park Chamber of Con Arts or is it the voice of Bill Morton pretending to be Tommys Mommy?

  • I think we all take comfort in knowing we won't be dining with Steady Eddie. He seems against neighborhood businesses.

Rogers Park Chamber of Con Arts

It posted that it was a member of the United States Chamber of Commerce (http://rogerspark.com/rp/news_articles/view/new_rp_chamber/). That is false. Nor is it a member of the American Chamber of Commerce or the Illinois Chamber of Commerce or the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. It isn't a member of any chamber of commerce at all. Have our local businesses paid annual dues and been hoodwinked? Ask the Chamber of Con Arts President for the answer.

  • Kyros C. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Suing for “libel” in an anonymous forum ?!? Some people just don’t have a clue.

    Good luck finding an attorney who is silly or desperate enough to take the case.

    Proving the “intent to harm” would be a neat trick, which is why such empty threats just sound goofy.

  • Cody Mac mixicologist

    The only "suits" that Mr. Morton's Chamber of Con Arts can afford are cheap ones from Men's Wearhouse and not expensive ones from a law firm. Morton can't defend the fact that his Chamber of Con Arts isn't a State registered business. It's a Morton scam act that is ripping off our local businesses and sucking money out of them for nothing in return. They are being scammed.

C4 Community Northside Community Mental Health Center Closes.

Will Ald. Joe Moore put forth a city ordinance calling for the re-opening of the city mental health clinic on Howard? Where will the 10,000 northside city residents go for mental health care?

    What can an ordinance do?

    They are closing because they went 6 weeks without billing their clients.

    Sad though the situation is what can honestly be done?

    " According to the center’s 2013 annual report and tax records, however, the center received $12.8 million in federal funding, $3.9 million from the state’s Department of Public Aid and $1.06 million in Medicaid and Medicare client fees. It also received $388,000 in contributions and $179,000 in public grants."

    The Clinic had revenues of 18,327,000.00 Dollars leading up to the period where they couldn't bill for 6 weeks.

    Where this money go? Before any assistance is provided lets have an audit.

  • George Mason I find cold sheets extremely disagreeable

    18 million dollars divided by 10,000 clients is a little over 100/month/client. That can hardly cover the bills for weekly therapists visits, medications and psychiatrists visits. We need to invest more dollars into mental health care to spend less dollars on prison incarcerations and unnecessary hospitalizations (which are costing us billions of dollars).

  • ". The organization's president, Eileen Durkin, blames the closing on the botched implementation of a new billing system at the organization. Multiple staff say the organization has been mismanaged under Durkin. They point to poor communication and financial choices."

    Audit.

As an actor, it's the perfect job (and, all of the dogs I've walked have been my "understudies" since they hear me run my lines while we're out and about!) Since the economy went south in 2008, I've been doing this more or less part-time, but since I dig this so much, I'm looking to build it back up again. Reliable? Oh, yes! Responsible? Certainly! And, the fact is, in all these years, not one single dog or cat owner has left me to go with someone else.That means that I have as many solid references as you want.

Driver Came at Me 'Like a Shark,' Road Rage Victim Says

Okeke said Wednesday that he began to pursue Vigil's car through Rogers Park before coming to a stop about 1:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of West Morse Avenue.

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

Okeke, who works at a pharmacy in Rogers Park, said the March 16 confrontation began at the intersection of North Broadway and Sheridan Road when Vigil would not allow him to merge to the left to avoid construction while traveling northbound on his way to work.

  • Of course, there are "rude ones" out there. So, if there's room to let such a rude person in (you know...it's the "all about me" attitude with them), I will.

    Some of us care...my car is not old, it's in great shape and no, I don't want someone to hit it and potentially injure me, as well. I don't have the time for a lawsuit or angst. For my own remaining "first" in line, well, it's just not that important to me.

    I see road rage as grown ups throwing a temper tantrum because they just want things their own way. Grow up. If it's that important to you to go around me, go for it. I have no intention of putting my life in danger just because you need to learn how to manage your anger. Unless it is a matter of life or death, there is no reason for any type of road range. If you are late for work, it's your fault, not the drivers around you. Try leaving a little earlier so you don't have get so anxious when driving.

I moved into a section 8 building near Winthrop & Glenlake (sublease) until my new apartment on Farwell is ready (squatter must be evicted, UGH).

The building is old, with hardwood floors that make more noise than a jackhammer. I could deal with that, but the upstairs neighbors are something out of a horror movie.

Day & night, stomping on the hardwood floors in hard-soled shoes. Moving heavy furniture all day & at 3:00 am to 4:00 am NEARLY EVERY NIGHT.

This started on day one. They seem to follow me around, stomping above my head, moving furniture across the floor repeatedly, methodically, up to 20x in a row. They set their alarm for 2:57 a.m., get up, then wait until 3:00 a.m. to move furniture across the floor. When they get bored with that, they knock on the floor, continuously, rhythmically, for at least 20 minutes, pause, then start up again.

I've complained to management to no avail. The tenants seem mentally ill, intent on causing disturbances. If I'm making dinner, they seem offended and stomp; if I am watching television, they seem annoyed and stomp. I watch with subtitles to keep the sound low, but it doesn't matter. Sometimes I turn on meditation music to try to drown them out. That enrages them & they engage in temper tantrums, stomping, jumping, dropping things, moving furniture.

I've been warned by friends & police that they may be trying to force a face-to-face confrontation so they can sue me; I stay away from violent neighbors & these people seem seriously deranged. I even wonder if they will try to attack me someday as I'm leaving the building to go to work or coming home after work. They never leave, except to smoke.

I love peace & quiet. I'm thoughtful, wear only socks inside, walk lightly. I try not to disturb my neighbors but these jerks are forcing me to turn up my music and television just to drown them out. I worry I bother my other neighbors now!

Advice?

  • Kyros C. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The video did the trick – after watching the entire eleven hours of the video, I found myself getting extremely tired.

Lost Cat, Cream/Tan with Blue Eyes

Please help us! We lost our male, 3-year-old flame point Siamese cat last night. He is mostly cream/white with tan/orange striped ears, legs, and tail. He'd likely just look tan or dirty from a distance. He has blue eyes and weighs maybe 10 pounds. He is microchipped but has no collar. He's never been outside before and we're very worried about him, especially as it starts to rain! The only picture I have on this computer is from when he was a kitten.

Urban Humor: Does Your Street Have It's Own Facebook Page?

Haskins, a one-block long unpopulated street next to Triangle Park has one. It is the creation of the unofficial Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce, an all volunteer, non-political, non-profit group. The Haskins-Avenue Facebook page has business news, political news, entertainment news and news from a faux "Bishop" even though no one lives on Haskins. It's humorous; check it out at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Haskins-Avenue/805270412855643 Apparently it's a free and whimsical service from the unofficial chamber. BTW there is no housing on Haskins unless you sleep overnight in your car.

    The founder of the Rogers Park Chamber of Con Arts has no fewer than six different Facebook pages under his own name. A NOH Facebook page is a good idea. There is a North Howard Neighbors Association blog (not a real association but it's called that) and a link to The Crow's Nest with photos of a pet possum named Pogo.

I'm also sorry to see these wonderful sculptures disappear from Morse (though admittedly some were looking the worse for wear); they really contributed to the street's vibrant character. The prime number sculpture pictured here was my favorite. I hope someone will be able to keep the sculpture garden on Glenwood going.

Change for the better: No monitoring freshly poured sidewalks

Here's a good sign that Rogers Park is changing for the better:

About 10 years ago, we got new sidewalks around Farwell and Greenview. I had to essentially guard those sidewalks to prevent them from being permanently scarred with graffiti and gang signs. And when I went inside for 30 minutes to eat dinner, one had been marked up. So I used a spatula and water to smooth it out.

That was then, this is now.

And when I went inside for 30 minutes to eat dinner, one had been marked up. So I used a spatula and water to smooth it out.

That was then, this is now.

Over the last week we've gotten new sidewalks and curbs at the corner of Farwell and Greenview, courtesy of the Peoples Gas meter program.

I again figured I would have to monitor for graffiti and gang markings - but no.

Ten years ago gangs ruled Farwell from Wayne to Ashland. Not so much anymore.

Now, I'm not going to say this neighborhood is totally gang free. But I will say that due to solid policing and neighbor action like positive loitering, the gang activity has greatly diminished.

Let's keep it up, and celebrate our success!

  • I did the same last year when they did the sidewalks in front of the building where I stay on Greenview, between Morse and Farwell. I notice some graffiti markings on the newly done pavement, so I use a branch to scrape them off, along with the graffiti markings next to the 1444 W. Farwell home.
    I try to monitor the new sidewalk done Monday towards the end of the 6922 N. Greenview building, but when I stepped away for a hour, the damage has been done!

Stolen Property

Hi everyone,

I'm new to EveryBlock. Yesterday, I came home and noticed that my grill on the back porch was stolen, as well as my dog cage and a few other things. My neighbor had his chairs and a few other thing stolen as well. My other neighbor had tools stolen from the back of his truck. It seems like someone is going around, trying to find anything worth a bit of value. Keep your property locked up or indoors.
