    'Easy' Guide To Chicago: Charting All The Local Treasures In The Series
    Joe Swanberg's new Netflix series, Easy, showcases an array of Chicago's local treasures, once again establishing what Chicagoans do best: have complicated relationships! Just kidding, the answer is (and always will be) eating and drinking. And while the show is much more than local novelty, it's still fun to see our favorite haunts onscreen and discover new ones along the way.

Why Has Silver Cloud Sat Empty for Over Two Years?

Oldham, who owns the Fat Cat bar at 4840 N. Broadway, said that "everyone is asking me all the time about [Silver Cloud]."

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

A now-faded sign in the window of the former Silver Cloud at 1700 N. Damen Ave. says that the popular Bucktown hangout would be closed "a short time" for decorating. That sign went up in August of 2014. 

Rivak "Rocky" Albazi, owner of Silver Cloud, also owns Sheffield's, a bar at 3258 N. Sheffield Ave. in Lakeview. For months, he has declined requests for comment on the future of Silver Cloud, which he owned with former business partner Cynthia Oldham.

Though prolific restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff was at one point rumored to be interested in taking over the spot at the northwest corner of Damen and Wabansia avenues, that plan never transpired.

    Why Has Silver Cloud Sat Empty for Over Two Years?
    BUCKTOWN - More than two years since the abrupt closure of Silver Cloud, a Bucktown bar known for its serene patio and comfort food, the prime Damen Avenue location is still not for sale. A now-faded sign in the window of the former Silver Cloud at 1700 N. Damen Ave.

    what a huge cost to taxpayers for the legal fees CPS paid for this deal. Svigos development should be sued. Just because they couldn't get tax credits from TIF funds (which should go to schools - not developers). Pat O'Connor should make sure these costs get paid back to the city. The deal should have gone to Waldorf school since it is a school. Why change a building that is a school to something that it is not when we need more help with education in this city.

Car messed with

Woke up this morning to my car with signs of being ransacked. Nothing missing, but obvious someone went through glove compartment, and middle console as they were both open and papers flung out.
Nothing appeared stolen.
Keep your car doors locked people!!!!

  • ctomsee Lifelong Chicagoan; Lifelong Sox fan; Dog lover

    Sorry to hear this and very good advice. More specific location please. Thanks!

  • lol, yeah you are right! Sorry bout that!
    Damen and Ainslie. right in front of my house!

  • And don't leave anything that might be easy to sell in plain view. Hide, GPS devices, radar detectors, and other electronics. Cover packages or put them in the truck and remember during the holidays people will watch and see if there are packages in your trunk if you open it and throw something in it before you walk into the mall.

    Remember when you see broken glass in a parking space it's because someone saw something worth taking in a car and broke the window to get it.
