Violin lessons

Any recommendations for violin lessons for a four year old in the area? Unfortunate, ACM only has one teacher in their Logan Square/Avondale location and it hasn't been a good fit.

  • Check with DePaul University. My niece had lessons there when she was younger.

  • k-dad West HP homeowner

    Music House! They're on California near Augusta and have great teachers, great group and individual classes, and a great vibe. My son started there when he was about 4 and still loves it.

  • The school I work at has a partnership with Bucktown Music. We have had good experiences with them. http://www.bucktownmusic.com/

Two dogs spotted by Central Park & Palmer: Tuesday 8:30am

I spotted a light apricot colored curly haired dog, medium sized, laying in the grass in the sun.

Near the dog was another smaller dog, looked to be dark chocolate brown with perhaps some lighter tan spots. Maybe a larger chihuahua?

Just a PSA. I always stop for lost dogs and couldn't grab them today. They weren't running so they were safe and lunging at the moment.

    can you catch them?

Congress Pizza Property Sold ?????

I've been told that the Congress Pizza property at Milwaukee Ave and Campbell has been sold. Today I noticed a large drill in their parking lot and that at least 2 holes where drilled. I assume that the drilling has probably something to do with sampling of the soil such as was done on the site of the twin towers. I'm wondering if anyone in the neighborhood has any idea what is happening at this site.

Boys Youth basketball for summer - help?!

Hi there! I'm looking for a boys basketball camp for the summer, 2nd / 3rd grade (for a 12 year old) --- there were a few online when I googled but I have no idea which ones are reputable and would rather go off the fine folks of EveryBlock than my googling skills..... Any feedback would be so appreciated. If there is one located closer to downtown/loop that's even better... But anything helps!

Thank you :)

Looking for someone to connect natural gas BBQ

We had a contractor install a natural gas pipe on our deck and am now looking for a qualified person to connect it to a webber natural gas bbq. Any suggestions please?

  • Doesnt the grill have a quick connect line? I can plug/unplug mine from the line any time. Or did the contractor not install the quick connect adapter?

  • Victor Perez small business owner

    I can take a look at it for you.
    you just need the proper adapters.

    Really looking forward to this event. Do we know if anyone from the Alderman's office will be present? A serious discussion needs to take place on the current open-top garbage cans located throughout the neighborhood. They are constantly overflowing with trash and obviously a huge part of the problem. With solar trash compactors and other solutions out there, it's insane that we still use these. It's also very upsetting that lazy MFers insist on stacking their trash on top when there is already a mountain spilling over.

    Sorry, but this topic gets me heated!

Shooting Drake and Lyndale

Does anyone have any info on what happened last night around 2 am on the corner of Drake and Lyndale. We woke up to what sounded like several gunshots and police cars...

  • Mark L Logan Square homeowner

    My wife says she heard shots too (we are across from the YMCA) but neither of us know what happened.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    I live right there and was woken up from a dead sleep a little after 12am (probably 12:10 or 12:15); I have been working insane hours so was very disoriented and had no idea what I'd heard, I assumed it was a car crash. But it definitely was not at 2am, it was a couple hours earlier.

  • Thanks I have a family member that works for CPD I asked them to look into it. I'll keep you posted.

Protests and cops by California and Milwaukee

Saw a protest and a LOT of cops. Any idea what is going on? Milwaukee is shut down with cops circled around the protestors

  • ld2

    So well organized they waited until these things were nearly complete to protest. I'm sure they'll stop construction and head on home....

Alleys are streets?

Any recommendations on how to curb alleys being used as streets? High speed traffic and honking in alleys between Western, Milwaukee and Fullerton.

  • Milli Lawyer, mom, Logan Square resident.

    Speed bumps made a huge difference in our alley. About 50% come to a complete stop before crossing and through traffic has dramatically reduced.

  • Tony Jones esq "Long block" resident

    The alley behind our house has speed bumps and connects to the Foremost Liquors parking lot at California and Milwaukee. I cannot say for certain, but those facts may be connected. They certainly deter a quick getaway from the liquor store. Aside from the massive potholes of course.

New Humboldt Community Garden?

Does anyone have any info on a new (what I think is a community) garden on Humboldt Blvd one half block north of North Ave? I live nearby and am wondering if I'll be able to use it, and who I need to talk to. It appeared over the weekend!

  • Sam and Janielle, I have added you to the richmond community garden email. Let me know if you don't get email.

  • Hello! Is this garden still available to join in on? I was planning on joining in on the garden next to FoodSmart but it doesn't look like they're operating anymore. Would love to know any details to get involved.

Where do you buy your flowers?

It's ALMOST flower season and I need a ton of flowers. Any suggestions on where I can go for affordable flowers that won't kill the bees?

  • Deb R 60641 resident 40 + yrs.

    Farmers Market on Elston not only has a large, healthy selection but a knowledgable staff. They can answer any questions you have about the plants, bushes or trees they sell.

  • I called Burpee’s customer service on 03-30-16 and they verified via phone that they do NOT treat their seeds and plants with any pesticides - they do NOT use Neonicitinoids.
    Yay!

    from Burpee customer service via email -

    “We do not treat our seeds with neonicotinoid pesticides or any pesticides; they are milled, washed, dried, and packaged. If you are concerned about the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in the production of our seed, we recommend using our organic seed found at http://www.burpee.com/organic-gardening/. All of our organic seeds are produced from plants that have not been treated with any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and all of Burpee's organic seeds have been certified organic by the Oregon Tilth (Oregon Tilth Homepage)

    “With regards to our plants, we use integrated pest management in our greenhouses and only apply pesticides according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture rules for pesticide application.  We make every effort in our production methods to not harm bees.

    “Burpee is the nation's leading purveyor of both heirloom and hybrid vegetables seeds and transplants. Burpee purchases seeds from a select list of suppliers throughout the world including Seminis. However, none of the seeds purchased from Seminis or any other supplier are GMO. Burpee has never bred or sold GMO seeds and does not intend to do so in the future.”

    Not sure exactly what "integrated pest management" means and I think it's a term that is meant to be vague and sortof much-encompassing. I think it means they try everything else before using any chemical pesticides on their plants.

Cheese makers? Looking 4 NON ultra pasteurized milk/cream

I'm near West Logan/Hermosa and wondering if there are any cheese makers out there shave tracked down NON ultra pasteurized milk and cream in the neighborhood. I know Fresh Thyme has the Kalona (pic) but it gets pretty expensive. Many brands like Deans don't say ultra pasteurized but after trying them they don't work very well leading me to believe they are ultra. Any cheese makers out there or milk aficionados? Thanks!

  • Mark,

    Do you know how much they charge for the raw milk?

  • ATID Anarchist til I Die

    Thank you for the address. The amish know how do things. I respect them for that!
