Someone came to my door Friday?

It was weird- they knocked on my kitchen door from the ally entrance way of my apartment on west Foster and damen in the afternoon and it kind of weirded me out. They were wearing a dress shirt and didn't appear to be a cop. They asked if I had seen anyone in the ally at 7 am Friday April 21st. There's always stuff going down in the ally right there but I was just wondering if anyone had any details?

    Just because they had on a "dress shirt" does not mean that were not up to something.

Looking for date-night babysitter – easy gig

My wife and I are looking for a sitter for date nights, usually Fri, Sat or Sunday nights. The sitter would come over after our 3-year-old is already in bed (around 8:00/8:30) and stay for two or three hours. Our son sleeps pretty well, so there would almost never be any actual child care involved. We just need someone to be there while we’re gone.

My wife and I are looking for a sitter for date nights, usually Fri, Sat or Sunday nights. The sitter would come over after our 3-year-old is already in bed (around 8:00/8:30) and stay for two or three hours. Our son sleeps pretty well, so there would almost never be any actual child care involved. We just need someone to be there while we’re gone.

The ideal sitter would be a high school or college student with childcare experience who lives nearby. We do have a cat who is very shy, but if you have bad allergies you might not want the job.

We have been using SitterCity/Chime, but we’re getting tired of paying premium rates for someone to sit on our couch, watch our TV, and use our Wifi.

Please send an e-mail through my profile if you are interested.

    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago
    If attending a game is out of the picture, consider watching the game somewhere where you can still be surrounded by fellow fans. Whether the game is home or away, you can still catch the excitement at one, or a few, of the many official Blackhawks bars across Chicago.

    Chicago has a lot more problems to worry about, things like murder and violent robberies, than some people celebrating a championship!
