Tavern at Crown Liquors

They opened the tavern at Crown Liquors at Diversey, Kimball and Milwaukee next to Dante's a week or so ago. The place is really cute inside. So nice to have that addition to the neighborhood.

Lost Keys

Lost my keys on Sawyer somewhere between Milwaukee and George just now. Has a skull and crossbones keychain, a blue carabiner, a white bottle opener, and numerous key passes (including Logan Square Fitness). Please keep your eye out for them as you walk around that area in the next few days! Message me here if you find them.

Note: please do not try and rob me; my building has like 80 security cameras. It will not go well.

    Woohoo! Lost keys found! Yay to having super nice neighbors!

Moving to N. Gresham, Avondale

I am thinking about purchasing a home on N Gresham and want to get some opinions on the block. I am 29, recently married and may be starting a family soon. Is this a good neighborhood for a young family?

  • I moved to Avondale with my family of 3 over a years ago ,just north of Belmont blue line, my son goes to daycare off Gresham. Very neighborly, kids playing on street, what a Chicago neighborhood should be like. Maybe join the Avondale neighborhood association on fb, get an idea...

    I moved to Avondale with my family of 3 over a years ago ,just north of Belmont blue line, my son goes to daycare off Gresham. Very neighborly, kids playing on street, what a Chicago neighborhood should be like. Maybe join the Avondale neighborhood association on fb, get an idea of what is going on. I did alot of reading up before I moved, not all attractive but I havn't regretted it. Another thing to consider when you do start a family is that there are actually many affordable daycare options in that area. Good luck

  • djAllison logan square resident, radio broadcaster

    Used to live over there about three years ago on Gresham nearer to milwaukee. Felt fairly safe except certain times walking my dog early in the AM (I had an overnight job that got me home between 530-6am) would get lots of street harassment in the area I noticed. Even bundled up in the winter.

Found your pittie. Did you find my wallet?

So rushing home to pick up kid from daycare and I dropped my wallet on the train at Logan Square. Black Kate Spade, all my credit cards, Ventra, DL inside. And when I got to my house there was a friendly collared brown pittie dancing in front of my gate. I let him in so he doesn't get hit by a car or picked up by an unsavory type. Can the karma police just figure this out and return our respective treasured belongings?

  • Used to be 'America's Dog'...war dog of WW1 and in the 30's, 'nanny dog' as people would have this dog as a 'baby sitter' for their kids if they left the house to shop.
    They 'love their people' and will do anything for them

  • God Bless You and all the "lil Pitties"

Lost tuxedo cat

My friend lost his tuxedo tabby. He lives in Roscoe Village. The cat is the sweetest, friendliest thing. "Keido" was his buddy and friend, especially since he's been widowed. The cat is without a collar (unfortunately), he is big boned, and loves his owner so much, I can't imagine he left willingly. Please contact me if you see a cat that resembles "Keido". Thanks so much for reading.

Lost kitty

My indoor cat, named Animal, escaped sometime yesterday afternoon/evening. He is microchipped but does not have a collar. He does not hear well so we are concerned about his ability to survive outside. He has blue eyes and his fur is a grey/lilac tabby pattern with white underbelly and feet. He is a very friendly cat but can be skittish at times.

He is the best with our toddler. Please keep your eyes out for him today!

Fantastic local photographer!

A few weeks ago, I asked EB about recommendations for a local photographer. There were numerous suggestions and, for many reasons, I chose Jennifer Shaffer off Fullerton and Milwaukee. We had a wonderful session this morning! My clan is a handful and she was amazing with my three year and six month old boys. Not only can she handle kids, but it was clear that she is a skilled, knowledgeable and talented photographer. As the holidays draw near, I highly recommend Jennifer for your family pictures.

  • I am feeling the love! Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family! Milli - stay tuned, I am sending you previews soon!

Great Electrician in Logan

I just had a porch light installed and a ceiling light installed where there were no lights before. I got two quotes, one from Urban Power at $1700 (for a five hour two person job!) and one from Bright Sparks at $410. Guess who I chose?

I just had a porch light installed and a ceiling light installed where there were no lights before. I got two quotes, one from Urban Power at $1700 (for a five hour two person job!) and one from Bright Sparks at $410. Guess who I chose? We actually almost got busted because the city inspector was investigating something next door, but he popped his head in and saw the work was to code and said because "times were tough" he'd let it slide. Minimal wall damage (no cuts in my ceiling!) and cleaned up well after the job was done. I have no relation to the company, found them on Yelp and used them because they were baseda few blocks from me. Highly recommend Alex and his crew.

  • G

    Wow if you think those are great prices, I could only imagine what you would think of the electrician I hire for $25/hour.

  • Allison Logan lawyer & homeowner

    My last guy was $15/hour but sadly moved away. Still, $410 for the equivalent of 9 man hours plus materials is more than reasonable in my book.

Anyone know Juan LLapa?

This morning I found a state ID w/ a bunch of business cards (most in Spanish) -- either fell out of a pocket or tossed out of a wallet. Further down the block I also found his RTA ventra card. Found these on the 3000 block of Spaulding, but ID address has him 49XX St. Louis. PLease PM me -- I will be turning them over to Liz at the 14th District CAPS office.

  • Loulu Me

    Thanks but if you can't find him than yes turn it all in to your local police station. Thanks for trying!

  • This is a good idea as, who knows, he could have been a crime victim whose wallet was stolen.

CNC Machinist Openings?

Can anyone recommend any businesses or machine shops looking for CNC operators? My boyfriend is new to town with over 6 years experience at large corporations such as Caterpillar as a CNC machinist and looking for something new that hires in at over minimum wage and isn't past the airport. Any recommendations or experiences/tips any else has for looking for a position as such?

Job boards or apps for the area?

I'm not sure if this is breaking any rules of Every Block but I was wondering if anyone knows of a good website to see jobs in just our area besides Craigslist? It's been a while since I've had to look for a new one and I'm have trouble with it. I'm open to anything so if anyone knows of any little places I might be missing as well in the Avondale and surrounding areas (I have clerical, retail and manager experience.) I would be forever grateful!

  • Indeed.com, careerbuilder, shiftgig.com are a couple I've used on my recent job hunt. You can also go directly to any large company's websites, like Macy's, Target, Starbuck's, Whole Foods, etc. and check out their career pages.

You can also go directly to any large company's websites, like Macy's, Target, Starbuck's, Whole Foods, etc. and check out their career pages. I mention some of those partly because it's the time of year when some of them are looking for seasonal positions which might, no guarantees, but might, turn into permanent ones after the holidays. Whole Foods will be opening several stores in the next few months.

    Avoid simplyhired.com. They don't update their lists in a timely manner.

    Tom G, the things I am looking into are receptionist positions within an office setting or for a veterinary clinic or medical. (I am taking the medical route in school and have animal experience as well as clerical.) Anything with retail too, I do have manager experience. I have tried Indeed, I like that one the best. Monster, careerbuilder etc have all just given me headaches with emails for job openings that don't apply to me even after I have the settings changed. Thank you everyone for the suggestions!

Masonry Companies

I am in charge of finding a reputable Masonry company for my building association. They need to be licensed, bonded and insured and it's a big project. After talking to few different local companies prices are everywhere? Any advice? Thanks!

  • KPG Logan Square resident since 1987

    We recently had two courtyard condos done by a company called Nairco. They don't list on Angie's List, etc. but they do major restorative work. They were recommended by a structural engineering company who consulted us on the job and bid process. They supervised Nairco through the whole job, and they said Nairco did a great job. And they were reasonably priced:) Their website is naircoinc.com

Masonry recommendation

Need a recommendation for someone who can powerwash the paint off my brickwork and redo any damage, as well as patch up my chimney. If anyone can recommend a masonry company please let me know, thanks!

  • Be careful with powerful power wash on bricking...it can damage the bricks big time. Look up tuckpointing on the web and see that they warn against it..
    Also, Angie's List is not reliable...they are 'pay for play' right now and their reviews may not be what you think, but some company spending the money to advertise with them. Also, they don't really do much if you have a bad experience or are over charged in the end; I know of what I speak.

Boil Water Advisory on 2600 Kimball

Just saw a notice posted to my front gate that everyone on Kimball from Drummond to Wrightwood should boil all of their drinking water until further notice. What a way to start the weekend! Has anyone called for more information? Any ideas on when the water will be deemed safe to drink again?

  • Milli 3 year Logan Square resident

    Ew, Joe. I had the boil advisory on Wrightwood and Central Park. Sounds like you have/had a true break. I always did have to run my faucets for 10-25 min to get rid of the sludge after every water shut off, but it never stuck around and was non existent when we had our advisory. It took us about 48 hours to get ours lifted but our advisory was a mere precaution until test results came back clear.

  • Joe

    They said there was an unplanned break, so hopefully it is truly 48 hrs or less and not 48 business hours

Richmond and Logan Blvd.

Does anyone know why there were at least 5 cop cars on Richmond near Logan (south of the boulevard) on Sunday morning?

  • Gil Jimenez Private Investigator; IL concealed carry trainer

    if police were called, it is a public record. re-publication is not a privacy violation if the details do not exceed what was reported to police.

  • I think we can all read between the lines here. It was probably a domestic incident, and Andrew isn't worried about any privacy violations, he just doesn't want to air his neighbors' dirty laundry on EB.

What's that wonderful smell?!

Quick question for anyone living near the Addison blue line. I live near the intersection of Addison and Lawndale and for the past week we have smelled something sweet..sort of cinnamon smelling in the air that smells amazing. Are there any new bakeries that are closer than sugar hills because I know it's not that one being it's so far down the road. I know this is a long shot but I'm just curious.

  • Carter O'Brien lager beer rioter

    Just joking that it is at least quasi-commercial food production.

  • Koren Tracey Avondale Animal Lover. Avid Foodie.

    I have not a clue. I thought it may be Sugar Hills traveling this far or Olive Garden desserts as well, but I'm unsure. I know for a fact its not Subway. Haha. It just smells wonderful and I wish I could find out why, perhaps its just someone baking, who knows. My search still continues!
