  • Sherian Lazy right now!

    A really great idea now if only the scum of the earth would leave the pianos alone so that decent people could use them all would be well. Last summer the drunks/thugs/scum destroyed one piano in a park and we lost a good piano. So far this summer it is working out and I have heard so wonderful music by very talented people.

  • MarcP MP

    Calling all pianists.
    Please do not forget to bring your own hand sanitizer and something to clean the keys off these pianos.
    As stated by Sherian, these delightful objects for playing music in the park are less than inviting to those who really appreciate this installation.
    Germs can really kill the mood.
    Play on but play away with a generous amount of purel.

    Wow.

    We like R public house. However we used to LOVE R public house.
    We happened to be there one night when an off duty employee made a scene with a patron.
    BOTH were drunk.
    Renee (whom we've met before) didn't do much to stop this very disturbing event though she was steps away.
    We don't go out to see this sort of thing and frankly, makes us nervous to go back.
    We want her to succeed.
    We also want her to handle these types of things WHILE they happen.

  • Mad About RP Proved right... again

    ^same here used to go 2x per week. But then I witnessed extremely aggressive behavior there on 2 occasions. Once was even on a Sunday morning during brunch!

  • Have any "LGBTQ owned business" in Chicafo actually suffered for patronage in the city of Chicago?

    This isn't Kansas.
