    "Do you think Rahm's contractors' people are out there beating the bushes for him in these last few days?"

    We've gotten about a dozen calls from Rahm's side. Nothing from Chuy.

    Tho Chuy did make an appearance outside my kids school shortly before the first election--there are few parents in the hood who are very pro-Chuy, and presumably orchestrated it. Believe that that is mostly about the school board--which cannot be a bona fide elected body w/o action from Springfield.

    John: I agree that debates are probably the best way to get a sense of the candidates. As far as Harold Washington goes, we would be lucky to get someone like Harold again. Never was the Mayor's office as open to community groups as it was during the Washington administration. He knew that he had to get white and Hispanic votes as well as black votes to get reelected, so he spent his time in neighborhoods all around the city. I knew people in his economic development office and they all were very dedicated to bringing resources into the neighborhoods. Garcia just does not have the same voter base as Washington did, nor does he have the same sheer charisma. That is not to say that Garcia isn't very dedicated to making neighborhoods a top priority. He is, and that's his strongest suit. But I got to see Washington close up, working a crowd, and he drew energy from being with people like no politician I have seen since. He loved people of all colors.

    P.S. As a side comment to people running for office; All things being equal I will vote for the person who does not call the other candidate names. The "At least I'm not as bad as xxxxx" is a red flag. Kind of like the ISIS slogan; "Hey, at least we are not Comcast"

Shots fired, 2:40am clarendon/Sunnyside?

Was I dreaming or were the fine men of Sunnyside showing love for one another again by firing off rounds around Sunnyside and Clarendon at 2:40? Something woke me up and I thought I heard shots. It isn't even April yet - is this seriously how the summer is going to be in Uptown?

Chipotle Opening

My friend and I were walking past the new Chipotle on Broadway and noticed all the cars so we thought we would check things out. They are having a soft opening today and was supposed to be by invite, but the guy at the door let us in. It was packed, the food was great and the atmosphere was wild. Did I mention the food was free? We had a great experience and maybe if you give them some puppy dog eyes and the guy at the door is cool, you can get in and try it out. I am already hooked. Be sure to bring a few bucks to tip the servers. Welcome to the neighborhood!

  • There's a new one on Broadway and Foster. The one at Belmont has been around for many years.

  • CT3

    Ah at foster, thanks. Yea, i don't know why I thought it opened in August. My apologies if I offended any of the cult members

Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, @the kid. I emailed the BCO last week.

    I submitted the petition this morning. The Alderman's office will forward the petition on to the Department of Transportation. The Alderman's office will keep me posted on the progress.
