Back in Bridgeport

Just moved back to Bridgeport after living in Tampa for 2 years. Glad to be back, can't wait for baseball to start and O'Malley's to open up! So what have been the biggest changes the last 2 years? Catch me up!

  • salty_dog0544 Semper Fidelis

    I was being factitious, but I really hope you're not serious Erik

  • Duck Inn is just great! Not super cheap but 2 of us got out for less than 30 with appetizers (duck fat hotdog!) and a couple fantastic beers- one was the Tangerine IPA from neighbor Moody Tongue- wouldn't really know it was tangerine, just had a wonderful flavor. And the service was as nice as can be.

Here Is To A New Year And New You Mr. Reyes! #McKinleyPark

It is clear that you Mr. Victor H. Reyes owner of The El Rey "Ballroom" which is running an illegal night club in the McKinley Park community has many resources and can do much better.

It is clear that you Mr. Victor H. Reyes owner of The El Rey "Ballroom" which is running an illegal night club in the McKinley Park community has many resources and can do much better. Your so called ballroom is the cause of many broken beer bottles, drunken fiascos and patrons thinking that the exterior of our homes are public bathrooms, not to mention the parking mess. I know you are well connected and hide behind the scenes most of the time. I know you also use "Pro-Hispanic community" talk when you do speak for credibility. But Mr. Reyes, if you are for us, why not open a positive business in our community? Sure your donations for art & culture go a long way and we appreciate them but help our communities by providing positive businesses. A man of your category and pull to open illegal nightclubs? I know you are much classier than this. Please help our communities, find another way to use this facility and any other you may own to bring a positive atmosphere in a much needed area. Your neighbors and people would appreciate this. And if for some reason you are not aware of what is going on in this building, please see the links below.

UPS Store to open

Saw that the apartment building with the 2 storefronts that has taken forever to get going between 33rd Halsted and 32nd will be hosting a UPS store. I don't know about everyone else but I'm happy with this. Not having a car this will be an easy drop off for me. This is an example of what we need in our neighborhood. Hope it pans out!

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

    Anyone know if this is intended to be a permanent store, versus just a temporary store for the holidays?

  • Kevin S. #Bridgeport #Southside #Chicago

    Erik, I would think if it was a temporary store it would have been open since around/b4 Thanksgiving. Both Fed Ex & UPS have been crazy time busy since then. I deal with both companies every day.

    I'm pleased to report that out McKinley Park Progressive Alliance is getting some good momentum based on the coming electoral season. We never formally endorsed Pete or Chuy but all of us are enthusiastic for their campaigns. Pete's campaign is currently moving on three fronts -- defend the position on the ballot from Cardenas' frivolous legal attack to our signatures, raise some money to open an office, and conduct a whirlwind tour -- holding meetings in every precinct. In the past week -- in addition to the MPPA forum -- we've held two local meetings in precincts west of Western. In their own way, they have been even more successful than the candidate's forum. The reason? Grassroots residents came and vented their frustration because they feel abandoned by the current alderman. Jorge you have been a great person to meet for you knowledge of real estate and insights about how to frame policy that will lead to a people-centered revival in McKinley. I have been around a long time and I know momentum building when I see it.

Please Help

I need to find an apartment by around December 15. I need something either month to month or a three or possibly 6 month lease. Two bedrooms would be great, but if not, will make it work. Also, can't spend a lot of $. Have lived in Bridgeport for about 15 years. Just need somewhere to relax, catch my breath and let winter pass. In my mid to late 50's and have a 30 something son with me. Also, need something with no stairs or can handle just a few. Thank you.

    I think there is one on S. Lituanica around 32nd Place - might be first floor and says $800.

    I watched the video. Now I need to ask a few questions, what block did he grow up on? Did he ever once go to a caps meeting? When did he ever pitch in and get dirty for clean and green? I grew up here 55 yrs and never recall him up until a few years ago and when I noticed him my first thought was ok he's gonna run for something, Next the video says he's gonna stop crime, I've been at every caps meeting and never once seen him! Sorry my vote will be elsewhere for this election along with the other 90% of this ward! It's defiantly time for change!

I had enough of the Daley Thompson and Maureen Sullivan bickering

I went to John Kozlar's fundraiser last night and it was about time we have someone running who is POSITIVE. His speech was beautiful and showed his true care for our ward. I could not believe the amount of people that were there and showing their support for him. I am behind Kozlar 100%. Give him a look, real neighborhood guy from our very own community. Comes from a great family that I met last night too. I'm speechless at the energy that I seen last night and am fired up to help! Here's more information on his campaign www.johnkozlar.com

    I'm not Daley Thompson's man
    I'm not Little Johnny's man

    I'm the 11th's Guy. Any one who wants to lead the 11th needs to start bring the goods back home. AND, candidates need to be REAL about it, not launching marketing plans toward future ambition
