Marty’s Martini Bar Anticipated Expansion Canceled

With a die-hard following of cocktail lovers, Marty’s Martini Bar at 1511 W Balmoral Ave. has been filling up glasses with spirits for ten years now. The narrow bar has a charm of its own with a very intimate setting. However, the small space can get very crowded as the ever-growing number of patrons come in to celebrate. Over the last year […]

  • I am sure that they will since they been there for years... but I understand that another cocktail lounge is going to take over the space.. so it will thin the crowd so that you can get in..

  • I agree with Teddy…and part of the atmosphere of Marty's is the crowd and wall to wall people. Yes, a larger space would have been nice, but Elixir will be nice to go to as an over flow or another option. Personally, I am psyched for Replay. Forget about laundry…my quarters are going there instead!!!

Many sirens at Granville and Sheridan

Anyone know what's going on? Sheridan is closed northbound; 147 bus rerouted.

  • Teri Cassidy edgewater beach resident

    I live in the building and I posted on this site as the fire was happening. My post never appeared. The fire was on 23rd floor. It started on a pile of clothing. It was put out quickly.

  • Next time get it right Teri!!! People were in panic not knowing what the hell was going on. This is just unacceptable!!

Loud BOOM sounds last night around 4am

I'm on Ravenswood, across from the Rosehill Cemetery entrance, and was awakened by a super loud BOOM around 3 - 4am last night (2/22-23). Sounded like a transformer blowing. Strange thing is, this has been happening a lot lately--loud booming sounds in the middle of the night. Caused by cold?? Anyone else hearing this? Maybe it's just me. :) Thanks!
