New Edgewater Chipotle Accused Of Questionable Recruiting Tactics

The owner of an Edgewater pizzeria says two women who identified themselves as managers of a Chipotle Mexican Grill franchise that opened in Edgewater on Monday came into his store on March 20 and tried to hire away his employees. “They came to the front counter, they said, ‘Hi, we are from Chipotle to say […]

  • You'd think that with all of the people that are out of work that Chipotle wouldn't have to go trolling for employees.

Coyote in the Hood

Hey everyone. Just wanted to mention that I saw a pretty big coyote at 7am. He was in the alley between Paulina and Hermitage at the 4400 block. He wasn't looking for trouble with us (me and 2 large dogs), but he was just behind a neighbors house, who I think has chickens...Just a heads up.

Daycare Near Ravenswood

Hello,

I am looking for any day care suggestions in or near the Ravenswood area. Anything down Ashland or Damen would also work well as I commute that way for work.

I all really need are names as I will call them all and speak with them personally.

Thank you all in advance

  • +1 for RC4 - ages 6 weeks-5 years, though usually a wait list

    +1 for Twinkling Stars Preschool - ages 3-5 years

  • I should have mentioned that this would be for infant care, but I appreciate all the suggestions!

Thoughts on N Glenwood Bike Lane

Looking for some thoughts on this. The other day I was going east on W Hollywood and when I got to N Glenwood, I stopped to take a left on to N Glenwood - which at this point is one way heading northbound. As I pulled out a biker was going southbound - against the traffic and I almost hit him. Even though he was breaking the law, it really wouldn't have mattered because I really don't want to hurt...

Looking for some thoughts on this. The other day I was going east on W Hollywood and when I got to N Glenwood, I stopped to take a left on to N Glenwood - which at this point is one way heading northbound. As I pulled out a biker was going southbound - against the traffic and I almost hit him. Even though he was breaking the law, it really wouldn't have mattered because I really don't want to hurt anyone.

So I got to thinking and the problem is that a lot of bikers use Glenwood but the issue is that when heading southbound at Ridge, they have to make a decision - ride on Ridge where there is no room or go the wrong way on Glenwood. I wonder if we shouldn't have a southbound bike lane from Ridge to Edgewater Ave on Glenwood and then direct the southbound bikers to take a right and go over to Clark (sort of like the bike lane on Ardmore at the end of the lake front trail). Anyone have an idea on how to make it safer for everyone?

  • Just curious. You have been hit by multiple bicyclists on the sidewalk?

  • john early ave resident for 10+ years

    Hey all - I feel that this topic is being hijacked. May be some good debate about whether bicycles should have tags or about not following the rules of the road - but that was not the intent here. Can you start a new topic for that? Thanks.

Are trash cans/dumpsters city property?

I am a dog walker here in Edgewater and the reason why I am asking this is because an acquaintance who is a dog walker in FL said they can't throw bags with dog poop in any trash can that isn't theirs. I never even thought about this before, and since I live on a building I have no idea what the code for this is. Are the trash cans and dumpsters in the alleys city property?

  • d3 NOH

    city bins are not green. park district does have green bins (which is actually a rather strange/outdated color choice for waste). the city bins will say city of chicago right on them. there's no way you can tell by looking at the color if they are privately owned or not. buildings with 5 units or more are using private hauling, buildings 4 or less are city of chicago bins. and a blue bin is for recycling, not dog waste.

  • If the dumpster is unlocked it is fair game. Just be sure to check the signage and not use the ones for recycling.

Low income housing?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can give me any info. I replied to a craigslist ad and viewed a nice apt in edgewater, $750 large studio. An Internet search turned up nothing bad but it is listed as low income housing. has anyone lived in low income housing before and does it imply anything dangerous or negative? I'm just not really sure if the term is a red flag or if I should proceed with the apartment. I'm a woman living alone so trying to be careful. The building is on Winthrop, south of thorndale. I like the area a lot.

Looking for a good, reasonably priced veterinarian

New to the Edgewater area and I'm looking for recommendations for a veterinarian. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • It's a bit of a tragedy that Meisner-Holley became a VCA hospital. They were an absolutely fabulous vet office with a stellar reputation for many, many years before the last full-time doc who privately owned it retired and sold it. I used to love them. I didn't think they were awful after VCA bought the practice but I only went back a couple times after that and wasn't thrilled.

  • Jey CM Dog walker and animal lover

    Broadway Animal Hospital in Edgewater or Milaknis in West Rogers Park. Just whatever you do, don't take your pets to VCA on Devon, they are rude and have bad reviews online for a reason! ;)

Facebook is launching a social network for cyber security professionals to share information about threats that could lead to cyber attacks, as the US government and companies search for new ways to co-ordinate their defences.

The world’s largest social network is stepping up its work in cyber security by teaming with other technology companies including Yahoo and online scrapbooking site Pinterest. The platform will enable companies to share clues about how hackers are behaving in the hope of preventing security breaches.

As cyber attacks hit companies from Sony Pictures to health insurer Anthem, the private and public sector are under pressure to work together to understand their adversaries. Hackers join forces and share tips to break into networks but so far, communication about cyber defence has often been haphazard.

Mark Hammel, Facebook’s manager of threat infrastructure, said ThreatExchange had been developed from a system that Facebook was already using internally to make it easier to catalogue threats to the site in real time.

Chipotle Opening

My friend and I were walking past the new Chipotle on Broadway and noticed all the cars so we thought we would check things out. They are having a soft opening today and was supposed to be by invite, but the guy at the door let us in. It was packed, the food was great and the atmosphere was wild. Did I mention the food was free? We had a great experience and maybe if you give them some puppy dog eyes and the guy at the door is cool, you can get in and try it out. I am already hooked. Be sure to bring a few bucks to tip the servers. Welcome to the neighborhood!

Edgewater Residential Swimming Pools

Hi all,

Several buildings in the area have swimming pools for building residents. For example, Malibu and Edgewater Beach Apartments both have pools. Does anyone know if there's a swimming pool a non-resident can access without being a resident's guest? For example, is there a building where I could pay to use the pool? I know Edgewater Athletic Club has a swimming pool, but it seemed a bit small and noisy.

Thanks!

  • Invictus Edgewater neighbor

    Also, consider the Edgewater Athletic Club in the Sovereign Hotel at Granville and Kenmore. They charge, of course, but they have a great pool.

  • Julia Z-N Andersonville Dog Mama

    The Chicago Park District should not be charging for the use of OUR pools. This started in just the last few years and I think it's a slap in the face to Chicagoans. The parks should be free,and I mean all the parks.

One interesting thing is that between February and now the apartment got 10% bigger (from 2000 to 2200 sq ft).

I’m no elitist, but where is it written that every restaurant must be affordable to people of all incomes, or that anything that isn’t budget is too upscale??? Hate to break it to you, but stuff like freshly roasted coffee, expertly crafted coffee drinks, responsibly sourced good ingredients, furniture, and wait-staff is labor-and-materials-intensive. Not everyone wants to walk up to and order from a menu board, or sit at a counter and eat and drink blah food and beverages made from supplies from low-quality generic bulk purveyors (or even from pushbutton machines), served (if at all) by grossly underpaid workers.

    DK, this is true with the exception of Metropolis which has been around for a while but not as long as the convenience stores. Ann Sather's is relatively new and took over an established restaurant whose owner passed away, and M Henrettaa did not last too long and the space has been taken over by Revival. The Tai restaurant Summer has been there for quite a while and it is their second location. Pete's took over where a liquor and convenience store was located and since their opening, other establishments have been coming into the area. Have you thought about the fact that these establishments are not tacky but just cramming a lot of merchandise into such small spaces. I support any business that can maintain their existence for over five years and still stay in business. This is an accomplishment in itself as most small business usually fail within the first five years. So I say to you that with such diverse shopping choices you should not be negative towards any of them.

    Thanks Patrick and Rachel for the moral support. Miracles happen... keys have been found! I'm so relieved... I didn't post a lot of info about what was on the set to protect myself from an unlikely hero. If people found keys I figured they'd want me to ID the set... I would've wanted them to ID something specific to me so I could verify they actually had them.

    Thanks again. Grateful for this forum.

    I've been doing this for years, I've never had to take advantage of it but after losing a set years ago I got proactive and that plastic around your insurance cards is perfect for making a little tag similar to a store loyalty card - only for loyalty to you. Plus, murphy's law states clearly that you will only lose your keys if there is no identification on them, putting a tag with your phone number on them insures them against getting lost. ;)
