Dog Fun!

Would anyone be interested in meeting at Armour Park on 32nd and Lituanica for some dog play time in the kiddie playground area??? I do it often with dogs I come across in the park and we always make sure the playground stays clean for the kids!

  • Could people do today at 11:00 a.m.? I'm new the the area and my dog has not made any friends yet. She's a medium 10 year old German Shepherd/Doberman mix and she loves to play.

  • I work today but could do that time tomorrow. Goose is small but will run around with big dogs as long as they don't play aggressively.

Dunkin Donuts 31st and Halsted what happened?

I was on my way to work this morning and get on the Halsted bus at 31st. I noticed that Dunkin Donuts was closed? There was paper all in the window's and a sign on the door. I didn't have time to go read da sign because the bus was coming. Does anybody know what's going on? I know they were remodeling the dining room by the restrooms. TBH I am a Starbucks guy and don't really go here. But I don't like to see a business especially in Bridgeport fail.

  • Karl, remodeling and construction... I believe they want to modernize it.

    Koolz the only way they can totally modernize it is replace it with a Starbucks. lolZ Speaking of that Bridgeport doesn't have a Starbucks because when they wanted to open up on 35th and Halsted were Oscars Jewlery is now our wonderful Alderman (being sarcastic) told them "Bridgeport is not...

I am glad he retired and that Maureen Sullivan is running now and we can get the Bridgeport back up to speed......

  • Michelle Fennessy Twitter @drfennessy

    Glad others think about businesses too. I always shop local if I can and try for mom/pop places first, chains last, amazon prime if I need it fast (partially bc of brilliant business model and entrepreneurial zest). I think communities should worry about what's happening with businesses in the hood.

  • Marla J. Martin 4400 Block of Paulina

    I think Spacca Napoli on Sunnyside and Ravenswood is by far the best. I'm disappointed that they aren't found here. If you haven't tried them, it's an experience not to be missed!

After 54 yrs in this neighborhood and countless elections, I have never seen a candidate quite like John Kozlar before. I am a good friend of Pat Thompson's, but after seeing Kozlar's campaign website tonight, he has my vote. This young man has very good ideas planned for our ward and is very specific. You can tell he wants to be our Alderman and goes into detail on things that I did not even know Alderman had. There is no spin on issues, he does not name call, and if he comes through on his plans, our neighborhood will be back to where it used to be when I was growing up. He deserves this opportunity and we need to give it to him. Take a look for yourself = www.johnkozlar.com It makes me proud to see our next generation step up and make a difference in our neighborhood.

  • John and I have many friends and family in Canaryville. In his announcement speech he talked about how the next Alderman needs to address the needs not only of Halsted street but also the people of Chinatown, Canaryville, Bridgeport and Pilsen. Feel free to check out Casey Cora's DNA article on John's speech. You can hear it on sound cloud.

  • Josh Michael, welcome, and AMEN. The bickering that I see about this race is sickening. Not what should be expected of grownups.

    Just incidentally, I wish I had $1 for every time I read someone crow on social media about being from Bridgeport their "entire life." SO WHAT!! It is irrelevant information. I moved here by choice 23 years ago, have been a property owner for 17 years, and care every bit as much about my community as the lifers. Point is, if you are living here, you care about the neighborhood. Stick to telling us about plans you have to make the community better, not how long you have been here, which doesn't mean squat.

New Zaytune location?

I see that there's a new Zaytune sign at 35th and Western. I assume that this is a new one, not the one on Morgan in Bridgeport. Does anyone have the scoop? It's a great place. They might be well-advised to wait until the Western Ave. construction is done (if it ever is!) before opening. That construction is brutalizing business around there, as the Archer Ave. construction is in that area.

  • Paul Lukis Bridgeport Blogger

    Funny enough, I was just at the new location. It looks to be up and running next month.

  • Justin K. McKinley Parker since 2008, south sider since 1998

    I rode the bike by this evening with the kid: That's a very high-traffic location that will hopefully be good for their business (and the neighborhood). Now, how about a decent coffee house around here?

Turning right at 31st and Loomis

My number one pet peeve driving home from work is people making a right turn from the LEFT lane at 31st/Loomis. You are supposed to get to the lane closest to the curb to make a right turn period. This intersection seems to be the worst at making a proper turn. Its not rocket science.

  • Mary 17 year Bridgeport resident

    Drivers are doing this all over especially to avoid pedestrians in the cross walk, I wonder if these drivers know how much the fines are when they are caught? Please call 311 when you see this happening otherwise it is like it never happened. The city goes by the numbers when they assign police to traffic duties.

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    Are there really, technically multiple lanes over there? If so, they sure could use some paint to make that clear.

Internet Service Provider - RCN?

We're moving to Bridgeport soon, and are wondering if we should switch from Comcast to RCN? Comcast has generally been great where we are now, but the prices are getting expensive. They're so manipulative the way they structure their prices. We were unhappy with AT&T, so we're not really interested. What have been your experiences?

  • denise b concerned citizen

    I have AT&T internet had to get a $200 home tower to get it to work. No towers in my area. Had to pay up front then they took off bill.Service OK

  • RCN doesnt seem to have as many available channels. I had a friend who had it within his condo (no other choice) and hated it. I always call Comcast on the anniversary of my start day and threaten to leave - they have kept the price the same now for 4 years.

International Grill in Pilsen

For those of us who've been wondering where Chef Eusebio and Olga from Amelia's went, check out their new restaurant in Pilsen. Essentially the same menu, still great stuff. BYOB. We ate there Friday night. Sorry to see them leave Canaryville, but they're still close by.

    JL, you got "democratic" (democracy) and "republic" mixed up. What you're referring to as "republic" is a direct democracy. When leaders make decisions on behalf of their constituents, it's a republic—when the representatives are elected, it's a democratic republic.

Daley Thompson's Illegal Tax Break

It is funny how as soon as you mention Daley Thompson's illegal tax break his supporters go silent. A "clerical error" that continued for 12 years and only stopped when the BGA caught him red-handed is pretty hard to defend.

A new day is dawning- the old machine and it's old ways of doing things has got to go. Good news for the connected like DT is that they can live off of the largesse and fat they've accumulated for decades.

Whether we're talking Daley Thompson with his multi-generational connections, or Emanuel with his billionaire donor bosses, 2015 will mark a return to people power. The clout crooks are getting the boot this time.

Petition to improve train viaduct sanitation

EB user Michelle Fennessy posted this Change.org petition to the Pilsen neighborhood. Since Bridgeport has viaducts along the north and east sides, I figured it was worth posting here, as well. I know we have complained about the state of viaducts previously here on EB.
