Maria's Team Aims to Prevent 'Bro-Hole' Bar From Replacing Club Foot

Club Foot's owner, Lauree Rohrig, who ran the bar with her husband, Chuck Uchida, said on Monday that she would like to sell the business and liquor license to Mike and Ed Marszewski, owners of Maria's Community Bar, a tavern and packaged good store at 960 W. 31st St.

At the northeast corner of Augusta Boulevard and Honore Street, Club Foot closed in late November, just two weeks shy of its 20th anniversary. 

Moreno made exceptions to his promise for Forbidden Root, a craft brewery at 1746 W. Chicago Ave.

    Maria's Team Aims to Prevent 'Bro-Hole' Bar From Replacing Club Foot
    EAST VILLAGE - The owners of Maria's Community Bar in Bridgeport want to take over the shuttered Club Foot, bringing in a new concept tentatively called "The Golden Arms." But a local alderman wants the community to weigh in first, since the plan would need a liquor moratorium lift and zoning change.

  • Many of us lost our local meeting place/second home when Club Foot closed. Happy Village is fine but it’s just not for me, with its boisterous crowd. Division St is full of sports bars, but we never "got" sports and I don’t particularly like my conversations interrupted by random cheering...

    Many of us lost our local meeting place/second home when Club Foot closed. Happy Village is fine but it’s just not for me, with its boisterous crowd. Division St is full of sports bars, but we never "got" sports and I don’t particularly like my conversations interrupted by random cheering and jeering.

    So where do I go now to unwind after work or meet a friend for a quiet conversation? To pretty much every other neighborhood but the one I live in. I hope this changes.

    When I first moved to East Village and knew hardly anyone in the area, Club Foot was that welcoming place in which I could meet a variety of people and participate in conversations within my immediate community (or choose to sit by myself for hours, undisturbed). We long-time urban-dwellers sometimes forget that a great neighborhood-centric bar can actually foster this kind of town square environment in communities. Without Club Foot, for example, it's unlikely I would have met those amazing neighbors who, over the years:

    1. … chased down the woman who hit my parked car. The offender later admitted to me that the only reason she gave up her contact info is because they threatened to turn her in if she didn't!

    2. … happily lent a hand when we had that water heater emergency / bathroom emergency / car emergency / out-of-town-suddenly emergency.

    3. … always wave hello as they pass by, often sharing information about what's happening in the neighborhood or leaving veggies from their garden on our doorstep.

    Before condemning this potential new local haunt/business proposal, please consider the kind of neighborhood you truly want to live in, and what it means when you vote out a space that would encourage it. The trend in the area has been the import of only the sports bar crowd, and seemingly at the expense of choice, diversity, and everyone else. We all lose out once that becomes the neighborhood standard.

Parking for Fiesta Del Sol not managed by WARD 25

I understand this is a popular family event. There were 3 paid lots near the fest and I and yes the $20 fee is ridiculous. That being said: Residents can no longer endure the massive overflow of people parking on streets nearby. Our street is a full 3 blocks from the festival and for 3 days our block and surrounding blocks were overcrowded with festival goers cars.

I understand this is a popular family event. There were 3 paid lots near the fest and I and yes the $20 fee is ridiculous. That being said: Residents can no longer endure the massive overflow of people parking on streets nearby. Our street is a full 3 blocks from the festival and for 3 days our block and surrounding blocks were overcrowded with festival goers cars. We are near Morgan and 19th St and were forced to park all the way over near Halsted and 19th most of the weekend coming and going to and from work This must be better managed by ALDERMAN Solis. One solution might be to apply for a Block party permits one day that weekend and use that permit to have at least one day our block is closed so loading laundry , groceries and kids doesn't have to be done double parked. I do thank festival goers coming to retrieve their their cars for being respectful and quiet .
We are also burdened by Thaila Hall , Dusek's and Simones patrons parking in our area also. It is time for our Alderman to stand up for the residents in this situation and find a solution..
I suggested to Thaila Hall owners that they rent St. Procopius lot for Thaila Hall concert parking instead of abusing residents by using our residential streets for their customer parking. They could also make a buck off that parking and donate a portion to a Pilsen Community non profit. Have a nice day : )

  • I would another parking nightmare is Don Pedro on the weekends, cars parked in the bus stop, in the bike lane, and Ive seen fist fights break out over parking there.

    Your neighbors can suggest getting permitted parking only on your street. I know that Allport is permitted now and maybe Racine is too.

    The fest should be closer to train stop.

    They close Cermak for way too long, Thursday morning until Monday morning it was closed.

  • FDS has always been that way. I also noticed some people complain about our yearly via crusis on 18th st. I would suggest to new residents to inform yourself of the events that take place in your neighborhood because yes they take place every year.

    As far as permit parking my old block did just that and now they have more parking spots available.

Plastic bag ban causes confusion

Ashley Flavin, store manager of the Target at 1940 W. 33rd St., said that while some customers were confused by the new law, most were happy to be given free cloth reusable bags worth $1 to $2, which her store handed out as a promotion to educate and encourage shoppers to reuse their bags.

A selection of reusable bags are available at checkout lines at Walmart store on 7535 S. Ashland Avenue in Chicago on Monday, June 15, 2015.

"I completely forgot about it," said Andrew Leth, 36, an IT worker who lugged a watermelon, a couple of cases of beer and wine coolers to his car without a bag rather than pay for reusable bags at the Jewel-Osco at 4660 W. Irving Park Road.

    Plastic bag ban causes confusion
    Chicago's plastic bag ban may have been heavily anticipated for months, but it still proved a surprise for some supermarket shoppers at the checkout over the weekend. While retailers said the city's new law banning lightweight plastic bags was generally welcomed by the public, some customers reported teething problems as the law came into effect on Saturday.

    Of course it causes confusion. The life-endangering use of hand held cell phones while driving has been banned in Illinois for over 1-1/2 years, yet drivers still aren't adjusted to the idea that this law applies to THEM. You think these same people are going to realize that plastic bags are now a no-no? Btw, the Tribune in its own inimitable drama queen way failed to mention that the majority of Andrew Leth's purchases wouldn't have fit in plastic bags and did not need to be "lugged" but merely wheeled to his car.

  • M F

    Too bad they aren't a "no-no", people just get thicker bags now. City failed on this one, great job.

  • Most new ways of doing things have a painful interval right after rollout. In a few months people will have adapted.
