What’s a Lot Worth in North Center? 63 Days on the Market at 3536 N. Damen

    What's a Lot Worth in North Center? 63 Days on the Market at 3536 N. Damen
    This 2-bedroom house at 3536 N. Damen in the Roscoe Village neighborhood of North Center came on the market in June 2016. The house is being marketed as a teardown so it's being sold "as-is." It's on a standard Chicago lot measuring 25×125.

  • In case my mistake (typo? fatigue?) wasn't clear....I meant 30' wide. 135' wide lot would be crazy.

    3600 Block of Hamilton had a 30' lot with a solid home sold as a teardown for nearly $700K. Developer is going to build to the legal limit of the zoning guidelines.

Cantina 1910 Closes Suddenly, Owners Blames Minimum Wage Increases

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of Cantina 1910 and Café 1910 effective immediately,” the co-owners of the restaurant at 5025 N. Clark St., Mark Robertson and Mike Sullivan, said in a statement released Monday morning via Facebook.

    Cantina 1910 Closes Suddenly, Owners Blames Minimum Wage Increases
    ANDERSONVILLE - Less than a year after opening in the former T's Bar space, Andersonville's Cantina 1910 closed suddenly over the weekend citing stressors from "the rapidly changing labor market for the hospitality industry." "It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of Cantina 1910 and Café 1910 effective immediately," the co-owners of the restaurant at 5025 N.

Chefs offer their take on perfect picnic sandwiches for Labor Day

Sean Sanders, the executive chef of Fountainhead, 1970 W. Montrose Ave., suggests turning a basic cheese and salami sandwich into a work of art with his signature combination of buffalo mozzarella, salami and heirloom tomato with lemon aioli on a pretzel sub roll.

This article has 4 other Chicago locations (Show)

Patrick Russ, executive chef of Seven Lions, 130 S. Michigan Ave., likes to kick up a simple turkey-and-cheese — or ham-and-cheese — sandwich with green apple slices and whipped cream cheese. And his baked barbecue chicken and pineapple sandwich adds a barbecued touch without the grill.

Chef Rodolfo Cuadros of Carnivale, 702 W. Fulton St., favors a gourmet-style Amish chicken sandwich.

Trevin VanDyke, sous chef of Osteria La Madia, 59 W. Grand Ave., says meatball sandwiches might seem to defy all picnic logic, but they can be prepared the day before and reheated in the sauce the day of the picnic, then wrapped in foil or an insulated bag to carry and keep warm.

Joey Hejtmanek, executive chef of Links Taproom, 1559 N. Milwaukee Ave., says his “MagnaBalsamic Chicken” sandwich, inspired by Phish’s “MagnaBall” summer 2015 tour, should get taste buds singing.

Hi neighbors,

It's back to school time and some Ravenswood school teachers are looking for some help with getting materials our teachers and students will need for this school year. The middle school team has been writing grants for various items and we're hoping that we can get them funded soon. Two that are active right now are for a projector and a document camera (Elmo) for the math class. If you can help with either, we'd greatly appreciate it....

Hi neighbors,

It's back to school time and some Ravenswood school teachers are looking for some help with getting materials our teachers and students will need for this school year. The middle school team has been writing grants for various items and we're hoping that we can get them funded soon. Two that are active right now are for a projector and a document camera (Elmo) for the math class. If you can help with either, we'd greatly appreciate it. Soon we will have others posted for new student furniture and technology, including more computers and printers we need to set up a middle school computer/printing lab. If you cannot afford to donate, we would greatly appreciate you spreading the word to others who may be able to support these students, including any local businesses.

Thank you!

https://www.donorschoose.org/project/from-the-page-to-the-screen-part-2/2165449/?challengeid=286026 - this one is being matched by a great company and only needs less than $200

https://www.donorschoose.org/project/from-the-page-to-the-screen-part-1/2167646/?challengeid=20499530 - this one still has $400 to go.

    From the Page to the Screen, Part 2, a project from Ms. Lukosavich

Deck Builder?

Sorry for the cross-post, but I didn't get a whole lot of response from Albany Park. Thought I would try a different/larger area:

Does anyone have positive recommendations for a contractor to demolish an existing single level deck and rebuild? Also someone who can rebuild wood front entryway stairs. This may require a bit of concrete work/repair as well. Must be licensed and insured and must pull proper permits. Please, positive reccs only, not "avoid so and so".

Thanks!
