so now you can not tell me i am always negative towards this store...

    By “price matching” I meant the practice of reducing one’s price for an item--on a one-off customer-by-customer basis--to match another store's advertised price which the customer can prove. Haven’t seen it at chain groceries, though some small specialty produce markets, farmers’ markets w/in 1/2 hr of closing, and the fruit-and-veg stands of my Brooklyn youth would engage in haggling to preserve customer goodwill.

    As to “Greek yogurt,” I never touch the lowfat or sweetened (almost always with starches and gums, HFCS or artificial sweetener) or fruited varieties. Of all the large commercially-available brands, only Fage makes it the way they do in Greece and the Middle East. (Until recently, it was imported from Greece but they’ve started making it here using the same techniques). Not sure who makes Aldi’s, nor how it’s made. I buy only the full-fat (whole milk) kind. Chobani, Oikos, etc. are just regular mass-market yogurts from which most of the whey has been strained. If I want fruit in my yogurt, I cut some fresh or unsweetened frozen fruit in.

Hi About 3-4 weeks ago I was walking on either Kenmore or Winthrop (I zigzag when I walk so unsure which) about the 5500 Block when I saw a man with a tan pitbull..either older puppy or young adult. He was SCREAMING at the dog and berating her. I attempted to talk with him but he walked away. I saw him again today in the 5700 block of Kenmore. Today he had the pitbull and a larger black dog. The poor pitbull looked like skin and bones and her eyes were watering and she was drooling big time and looked like she had just vomited. The "owner" was talking to a woman who was doing yard work and said he was taking the dog to the Vet on Monday as she has been vomiting and losing weight. I tried to tell him about the Emergency Vets but he would have no part of listening. When he left (walking southbound) I asked her if she knew him and she said no--she has only seen him around a few months. She did not seem like she wanted to get involved. The human was hispanic, I think mexican, I would say in his 30's, average build, maybe 5'7? straight black hair just above his shoulders. Today he had on a black fleece type jacket.

Does this man/dog sound familiar to anyone? I live in the area..but not right there so do not walk around there much. If anyone sees him and this dog and knows where he lives PLEASE contact ANTI Cruelty (or message me the info and I can do it) This dog was so underweight it is either very very ill or not being cared for and he was so apathetic about the whole situation.

  • EvaEdgewater long term Edgewater Resident

    Hi appearance..again I could be wrong but he looked Mexican ..I understand the question but I would like to focus on the dog(s) health. If in fact Hope is this dog (which I dont think she is) I am wondering if all those tests came back clear then what is the diagnosis? Why were eyes and nose running very badly and she looked like she just vomited?

  • Just because you rescue a dog doesn't make you a good dog owner. It's sad to see them go from one abusive situation to another. BTW, neglect is a form of abuse.

Whole Foods BBQ

Anyone else go to the Whole Foods Edgewater BBQ today? Other than the insanely chilly & windy conditions (glad I had gloves, wish I’d worn a hat), it was pretty good.

Very long lines for the actual BBQ items (coleslaw and either very tasty pulled pork or deep-fried faux-chicken--making it tough for kosher low-carbers), but I didn’t see them run out of food. Band “The Samplers” was a tight blues-rock power trio, but turned up a tad loud for some seniors. Ran out of tote bags early on, but I’ve amassed a bunch anyway. Individual booths ranged from True Nature (very good-natured, considering), Farmed Here herbs/greens, Creminelli salamis, Metropolis (hot coffee was HIGHLY appreciated!), Sauce Kitchen, organic breads/sweets/vegan ice “creams” & sorbets, popcorn, Just Mayo, to community organizations such as Friends of Senn, Jackalope Theater, Care for Real, etc. Disappointed that there was no sneak-peek indoor tour, but I guess that with only 11 days to go till opening they must be hustling like mad to get it all done. Glad I skipped breakfast earlier!

  • I agree. My daughter and I went as well. They didn't have to do this for the community, but it was great that they did. The food was great, the samples were really nice, the music was wonderful, and everyone manning a booth was there with a SMILE.

    It was really nice to bring the community together for a cold but sunny great Saturday afternoon.

    Sure brought some warmth and friendliness to counteract the wind chill! Nice to meet some of the purveyors and growers whose products we’ve been (and will keep) buying, get to know some more about certain neighborhood organizations, and meet so many neighbors we didn’t know we had. (Most of us walked there from within a few blocks’ radius).

Vanished beach at North Shore

In the archives of the Tribune I've found articles from the 50s and 80s about beach erosion in Rogers Park. 30 years on, we're in another erosion cycle. I've watched that whole stretch of beaches from where I live east of Sheridan on Fargo all the way to Loyola shrink over last summer, and this erosion is just something amazing to witness.

I've watched that whole stretch of beaches from where I live east of Sheridan on Fargo all the way to Loyola shrink over last summer, and this erosion is just something amazing to witness. Most of the damage was done on Halloween during the big storm with giant waves. And how amazing that the beach at the end of North Shore has vanished completely. 150 feet (according to my measurement on Google Earth) in one location! I was barefoot so walked through the very chilly water to the other side where the beach resumes. There are big boulders and old pylons... anyway, I'm just breathless with excitement as well as not wanting to be late to work.... but I wonder where it will end and if the city will do anything to stop it.

    Maybe this is too technical, but lake levels are tracked and forecast for many very important reasons. Here is a chart showing the Lake Michigan level monthly for the past 24 months and also how it's forecast to increase during the next six months (somewhere between a little and a lot). Also plotted on the chart is the high, low and monthly average over 100 years, so we're now in the middle range where the highest level was in 1986 and the lowest level was in 1964:
    http://w3.lre.usace.army.mil/hh/ForecastData/MBOGLWL-mich_hrn.pdf

    P.S. I remember that 1986 level very well, with waves splashing across Lake Shore Drive and the below ground garages on Sheridan Rd flooding.

  • DJM 25 yr. RP & Edgewater resident.

    When I first moved here, almost 30 years ago now, it wasn't possible to walk from the beach by Loyola all the way through to Leone, the water was up to the rocks by the buildings. I'm glad to see that the Lake is rising again.

ISO of Uber/Lyft Feedback

Hi

I have never taken an Uber or a Lyft. I have been hearing a lot of not so good things about UBER and when I search online read eben more negatives..including being overcharged, not getting Uber credits, some scary drivers etc. I haven't read or heard too much about Lyft..wondering what your experiences have been. Should I even try them or just stick to cabs?

  • Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably...

    Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably be an older car. I don't want to get into a flame war about uber and writing my distaste for the company (not drivers) would be a very long post. I will say it simply. Uber (not the drivers) is evil. Try to use lyft if you can. Everyone praising uber will be sorry when they get a stronger monopoly (which by the looks will happen)

  • I use Uber and like it much better than taxi cabs - much cleaner, doesn't smell awful, driver also doesn't smell awful, and driver doesn't talk nonstop and loudly on his phone.

Looking for local motorcycle shop I can trust

I have a Triumph and the nearest dealer is in the suburbs. Can anyone recommend a trustworthy motorcycle service shop in Chicago?

  • My husband just took his motorcycle to ACME Cycle at Belmont and Cicero. His bike has never run better, and they even found a potential brake issue he didn't know he had. Apparently they have a really good mechanic there that's been around Chicago for a long time.

    I have taken the metrics to Motorcycle Mania - liked it better when John from South Africa was there - but good shop- they get super busy so you have to stay on them. Motorwerks is good too.

Pepper Egg Sandwiches

I was wondering if any one might know, where I can order a great Pepper Egg on either French bread or Italian Bread sandwich. With the option of cheese and green hot peppers. I've looked in the places were we order from but none seem to have this on their menus. Maybe I have been looking in the wrong places. Would anyone know where I could get this kind of sandwich out there in Edgewater Community?? Thanks

  • Maria de la Rosa-Young, North Park Gardener and coffee lover

    Try Susie's Drive Thru, 4126 W Montrose, they have several egg sandwiches on French Bread. They will add cheese at your request. Menu online.

My 7 lb Yorkie was on leash and being walked by my son at noon on April14. An unleashed grey dog accompanied by a large and bald headed man attacked my yorkie. This occurred in front of the large apartment building at Southwest corner of Thorndale and Hermitage. The man was standing with his unleashed dog and another person with a white dog. My dog had his eye injured and will now require surgery. Unfortunately my son just rushed my dog to the vet because he was bleeding and crying and did not get contact info for owner of grey dog that attacked my dog. If anyone knows who this person is please call 773-251-0328. And please do not leave your dog unleashed. It is against the law! The dog that attacked my dog was significantly larger than my yorkie.

Possibly, he may just offer to pay the medical bills and take responsibility for his dogs actions. If he becomes hostile, I would call the police. If you are able to get in contact with the owner of this dog and he is a homeowner, I believe his homeowners insurance could Cover your dogs medical bills.

- unless you recently got the dog flu vaccine, your dog is unlikely to have been vaccinated against it and is at risk (The bordetella vaccine doesn't fully protect from dog flu.)
- until your dog is vaccinated, the best protection is to keep your dog away from other dogs in all situations, regardless of whether or not the other dog appears sick
- dog flu only affects dogs

    And since cats are now susceptible, please keep them indoors till the epidemic fades out (or the right H3N2 vax is developed and you can find a visiting vet to administer it to your kitty). Looks like I'll have to keep enduring getting mauled by my younger cat whenever it's "pet-icure" time--had been hoping to take him to Bark Bark for that. He's the first unbribable cat I've ever had--all the others offered no resistance when I offered catnip or cat-treats as a reward. And since humans can be a vector, don't pet strays, ferals, or even friends' cats allowed outdoors.

Engaging History of Mansions Along Sheridan Road

If any of you are architectural history buffs, as I am, this may be of interest to you. Too many mansions were torn down along Sheridan, but quite a few remain as property of Loyola, or the City. See:

It's a fascinating report.

  • Thanks for posting this. I live on Sheridan Rd. This report looks incredibly interesting!

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this. I especially enjoyed the newspaper clippings regarding the construction of the high rises. I am so glad these buildings were saved and am thankful for the community members who worked hard to that end.
