Car upside down on Webster

Yesterday, around 5:30pm there was a car upside down on Webster and Wayne- seemed to be a terrible car accident, though I have no idea how a car could end up windshield down on the pavement. We called 9-1-1 but the paramedics were already on their way.

Does anyone know what happened/if everyone was ok?

Petition signatures

I need help getting some petitions signatures for an alderman candidate.

Please let me know if you can help and/or sign it. You can only sign one petition and must be registered to vote in the 43rd ward.

Thanks

  • My volunteer just sent me the link to this post so I've decided to take over the feed. I'm Steven McClellan and I'm collecting signatures to get on the ballot for 43rd ward alderman.

    If you have any questions, feel free to email me anytime at steven.mcclellan@gmail.com.

  • Perhaps you should counsel your volunteer about posting on your behalf without disclaiming they are doing so.

Lola Bastille tonight at Laudi Vidni

I organize a little reception for my friend Elisabeth Berthon, a French designer who will present her brand Lola Bastille for the first time in the US.
A one-of-a-kind opportunity to discover high-end artisanal felt and shop her exclusive handmade line for women, men and girls. A distinctive and unique style, seamless elegant and comfortable clothes which highlight color blending and natural fibers.
Laudi Vidni, the custom leather handbags design studio is generously hosting the event and it's another good reason to come and check their gorgeous bags and leather samples.

  • After a very nice reception yesterday my friend's creations will stay on display at Laudi Vidni during the weekend. She is herself on site today, which is a real bonus because she can tell you all about the materials and different type of wool and techniques she used for each...

    After a very nice reception yesterday my friend's creations will stay on display at Laudi Vidni during the weekend. She is herself on site today, which is a real bonus because she can tell you all about the materials and different type of wool and techniques she used for each piece.

    I already loved her work from the pictures and a couple of clothes I had seen on her in the past. After yesterday's experience, hearing such a positive feedback from our guests, trying on some clothes myself, seeing how beautiful they all looked on people so different by size, style, age, gender, etc., I can truly say today that it is a must-see. Unique, artistic, beautiful, but also easy to wear, warm and comfy!

    In addition to that, Laudi Vidni staff who welcomed us is so sweet and their custom leather handbags are beautiful too, so stop by this weekend, have a mimosa and enjoy!

Temps Rising in Traffic Hell?

As in many parts of Chicago, it seems more money, time, and attention has been invested into red-light cameras than has gone into synchronizing our traffic lights. Lincoln Park is no exception. And with the "New City" Project well underway, I'm curious to know what improvement plans are in place to accommodate the impending flow of daily traffic into and out of the

Closing founding site in Lincoln Park and expanding in Belmont Cragin

Chicago, IL – September 26, 2014
After more than 100 years in Lincoln Park, non-profit, Christopher House is moving out of its founding location at 2507 N Greenview Avenue. A little over a year ago, Christopher House opened a brand new family resource center and their first elementary school as they have expanded into Belmont Cragin on the city's far West side. They have also increased their presence in Uptown and Logan Square in response to the needs of Chicago's working poor.
“Christopher House is continuously working to provide a continuum of education to children and families in need. Christopher House has evolved over its 100 year history and this is one more milestone. It’s bittersweet. We are eager to be located in the high need communities on Chicago’s West and North sides and to bring our family of schools to the children and families in these neighborhoods, but I am also sad to leave the neighborhood that has supported us all these years” says Christopher House Chief Executive Officer, Lori Ann Baas.
Christopher House will continue to serve nearly 5,000 low-income children and families annually. The classrooms in Lincoln Park aren’t closing, just relocating to Belmont Cragin. The official close date of Christopher House’s Greenview location is September 30th. Christopher House however still encourages all those in Lincoln Park - and elsewhere - to continue to keep up to date with all of their news and events. Such as the Holiday Program, helping 600 Chicago families get through the holiday season. Find more information on the program, and all of Christopher House services, at christopherhouse.org.
