What happened to the Bridgeport Vet?

I have been calling the bridgeport vet (Wayne, now that he is alone since Larry passed away) for over a week and there is a message that says the clinic is temporarily closed. Does anyone know why? And also does anyone know if Wayne is going to open again soon? I haven't been there in awhile since my dog and then one of my cats passed on. So I am out of the loop

  • here is the thread to BRIDGEPORT NEIGHBORHOOD that has an an accurate account of what is going on. I also began that thread....

    I took my puppy to Bronzeville Vet (31st Indiana) www.bronzevillevet.com for her shots and a general health check. The puppy was fine with her and the prices were reasonable. Didn't see any parking but street parking was plentiful right in front. The area is fine during the day and I would have no concerns going there in the evenings. I have read lots of great reviews about Metropolitan vet but no one mentioned their pricing and that concerned me. When I called for pricing their well being check was a little higher than Bronzeville which also has good reviews (just not a lot of reviews overall).

Missing Declawed 12 Year Old Sweet Male Cat-36th & Lituanica

White and orange male kitty slipped out of the door at midnight last night and his person misses him. He has never been outside before this. It's cold out, so please look for him if you can. He lives between Morgan and Lituanica on 36th St. See picture attached. He does have a microchip. Please contact Althea here--#312-259-4994.

  • Hey all- I caught the cat that has been hanging out on 31/Wallace last night. Any idea how long she's been out there? It's a female with an out of state rabies tag that cannot be checked until they reopen on Monday. I will get her scanned for a chip. I will post a new thread, but it is not Rudy. If you known who may be missing her, please let me know.

Kiddie park?

Does anyone know what's in store for the park at 31st & Lowe? It's been fenced off & today is being dug up. Haven't seen anything regarding it here or elsewhere.

    The upgrade is part of the park district's plan. McKeon will also be upgraded. These pocket parks are part of our neighborhood and not only make life better, they also increase our home values. Please consider attending park advisory council meetings where you can voice your concerns and ideas for activities at these small parks. The McGuane Park Advisory Council meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at the McGuane Field House. There are many programs available for pocket parks. Please consider attending the Nov. 3 PAC meeting. If you enjoy these parks, we can make them better.

  • Yes that park on 31st and lowe is getting a brand new park it is part of the Chicago park district

Adios Maureen.

Decent Gyms in the Area?

Hi neighbors. My husband and I are looking for an affordable and clean gym to join in the Pilsen - South Loop - Chinatown - Bridgeport area (we live at Archer and Canal). I have not heard the best reviews for the place at Canal and Roosevelt, nor for the one west of us at Cermak and Rockwell. This past month, we signed up for a month's membership at the gym in the Chinatown park district building. We're not that impressed though and were wondering if there were other good options in the area. We'd appreciate any suggestions you might have!

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    Avoid FFC. I joined a few years ago and it was a macho arrogant steroid poser place. Couldn't even get a place at the pool with all the staff letting their drunk friends in for free. Avoid this place.

  • Thanks for the additional tips! @bun bun - I have found that I am more motivated to work out if I have paid for a membership. Even if it is cheap, it still motivates me to go and not let the money go to waste. I find it much harder...

    Thanks for the additional tips! @bun bun - I have found that I am more motivated to work out if I have paid for a membership. Even if it is cheap, it still motivates me to go and not let the money go to waste. I find it much harder to get up the motivation to work out at home. Plus our apartment is pretty small.

    @Miki - we actually had decided on Snap Fitness and drove over to sign up, but we couldn't find parking and traffic was a mess because of construction. We decided we didn't want to have to deal with that every time we wanted to work out. Definitely a deterrence for us. =/

    I think we're going to stick with the park district for now and re-evaluate our options when we move next spring since we do not know which neighborhood we'll end up in. I have all of these suggestions noted so I can revisit them at that time. Thanks again everyone!!

Strays near Donovan Park

Around 5:15 today spotted two strays running together near the park. One is a German Shepard and the other was a smaller fawn colored dog. They appeared to be in good shape but were too far away for me to see if they were wearing tags.

Ten Thousand Ripples Art & Peace Workshop

The Chicago Park District and Changing Worlds will present Symbols of Culture, Symbols of Peace, an Art and Peace Workshop, Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at McGuane Park, 2901 S. Poplar. Join neighbors and friends for a morning of art and peace making activities. Learn about the Ten Thousand Ripples Buddha sculptures in Palmisano Park and work with award-winning artist, Indira Johnson, to create your own symbol of peace. This event is free and open to residents of all ages. The Ten Thousand Ripples exhibit was installed at Palmisano Park in August where it will remain until next summer.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    It just occurred to me... those sculptures will either stop the sledding this winter or make it more dangerous. This is very interesting. I am conflicted about the sledding at Palmisano. It looks so dangerous, what with the bottom of the hill leading to a wall. On the other hand, as a kid I loved sledding so much, and would hate to deprive any child of that experience.

  • R.

    I've sled down it many times and let me say that the fun far outweighs the danger. I haven't seen anyone get injured in the times I've been there, though the sledder has to mind any pedestrians passing by. Sad news if the sculptures interfere this winter, but I suspect folks will just spend more time sledding down the other side.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    I grew up in west Michigan where we had dunes and some of the dunes even had rope lifts. So my idea of sledding is possibly a little safer in some ways, and much more dangerous in others!

Falcon

Saw a falcon catch a sparrow on our deck today. Hadn't seen one so close before.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    We have nesting cardinals and mourning doves in our yard. We occasionally see red-tailed hawks. Mr. Woodpecker (red comb, and all) shows up for a few weeks every spring.

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    We have a thistle feeder. Fewer goldfinches have showed up this year than last. Mourning doves eat what falls to the ground. Haven't seen the falcons (I think what we saw were actually kestrels) in the tree across the alley since spring.
