Orthodontist Recommendation for adult

I'm looking for recommendations for orthodontists that work with adults. Or any to avoid. I'm most interested in the effectiveness of their work but any information is appreciated. North side of the city or Evanston/Skokie are the ideal locations. Thanks in advance.

Flooding in Garden unit

Hi neighbors,

I recently moved to the area in a garden apartment. I've been experiencing consistent flooding when the rains get really sudden and strong like they have been typically this season. Wondering if any other garden units in the area are having the same experience or if there is a problem with our specific drain nearby...any thoughts or advice appreciated!

  • Budlong Woods neighbor Chicago girl for life

    Unfortunately depending on where you live it could be a common thing. There have been various issues over the years because of the rain stoppers the city installed, the big dig project and river overflowing. As a general rule of thumb, I would never rent or buy a garden apartment in the city for that reason. Flooding is not covered by the insurance companies.

  • The City has restructured the sewers to keep rainwater on the ground in order to keep the system from backflowing raw sewage. This is coinciding with what appears to be an unexpected bit of local climate change, in the form of massive amounts of rain pouring down monsoon-style, instead of...

    The City has restructured the sewers to keep rainwater on the ground in order to keep the system from backflowing raw sewage. This is coinciding with what appears to be an unexpected bit of local climate change, in the form of massive amounts of rain pouring down monsoon-style, instead of the slow and steady rain we've been used to here. And in a perfect-storm sort of way, at least in this area, this has also coincided with McMansion after McMansion paving over any and every bit of open ground available, so natural drainage is at an all-time minimum. (Have you noticed the massive street floods at every corner lately?) The water has to go somewhere.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be renting any below-ground living space, and I'd get all your stuff in the basement up off the ground to keep it from getting water-damaged. Just in case.

Ribfest featured on Food network tonight

Saw a promo for a Food Network show that features Ribfest. It's on Tonight (monday, aug 25th) at 9:30, "Eating America with Anthony Anderson". I assume it's our Ribfest since I could see my building in the background.
I also saw on DNAinfo that Bartoli's will be featured on the Cooking channel's, "Bite This with Nadia G." tonight at 8:30.
North Center representing!

  • To me, asking where you grew up (ie. in the past), I think it's fine to generalize. Or if she said "here", that means anywhere in Chicagoland to me. It threw me because the woman was almost rude about it. No need for that. You're right though...New Yorkers are pretty snooty about the B&T crowd.

  • I had a friend who used to tell everyone he was from the south side of Chicago, and by south side he meant Hammond, Indiana. C'mon.

jewelers

Today at 9:29 AM

Some time ago, I don't remember when, many of you suggested good jewelers in the ravenswood/Lincoln/Montrose area. Of course I didn't write them down. Now I can't find the posts. Anyway, each year I add a small pearl to my granddaughters' necklaces for their birthdays. I know Chicago is more expensive than Michigan, but I'd like to keep the price reasonable and the workmanship impeccable. Any suggestions?

  • Steve Quick is pretty great.

  • Jeanne G From Michigan

    Erin and any others, please provide an address, cross streets and/or phone number when you post? I'm still new to the area and complete info would be really helpful.

XIPPO (Bar @ Damen/Grace) - Noise Out of Control!

These Xippo patrons are out of control. I can hear them coming a block away, then they congregate....And get louder and louder. I've called the police but of course they're gone by the time/if they show. Plan on letting the alderman know about it.

  • Thanks for the heads up, Kevin. I never even noticed the sign changed back to Xippo until you posted (I live across the street from the bar). They 'appear' to have closed up shop for the past year with the exception of the occasional paint and wine party. It's been blessedly quiet ever since and it's been a joy. I hope this isn't a sign that their loud, obnoxious Eurotrash dance parties will resume and once again destroy our neighborhood's peace and quiet.

  • Wow I didn't know EB brought back the old posts too.
    Still a few drunks passing through, but it's much better now that Xippo is gone.

Malnatis Open This Winter

Per Pawar's weekly email, final permits coming soon. They expect to open this winter. I'll take that bet right now.

    Nah, not without there actually being a permit posted. But from the commencement of underground work, to completion? You really think that can't be done in 5 months?

    Nah, not without there actually being a permit posted. But from the commencement of underground work, to completion? You really think that can't be done in 5 months?

    Of course, the whole situation reinforces the view that it's impossible for a business to get things done in Chicago--if a large-ish, local, business like Malanti's can't get things to happen, then who can?

    But then, it's also possible that they like to do a single project at a time, and while the Oak Park Malnati's opened basically on time, the West Loop one (where Ina's was) appears to be a bit behind schedule. So that might be the main delay.

    In any case, barring acts of god, or too many plane shadows cracking the slab, there's no reason that they can't go from actively starting underground utility work to open in 150 days.

  • I hope I lose my bet.

Friendly gray cat at Seeley/Irving Park Road - anyone missing her?

This sweet gray cat with a white belly and bright green eyes has been sitting on my porch for a couple hours now - very domesticated and cuddly! A neighbor said he had been taking care of her for a couple days - took her to a vet and found she's a middle-aged kitty, but she's not microchipped.

I sadly can't have cats in my apartment, but I'm keeping some water out for her and can keep an eye out, too! She may be owned by someone on the block and just out for a multi-day stroll, but if anyone in the Northcenter neighborhood recognizes her, let me know and I'll see if she's roaming around!

  • I have also posted her picture on Craigslist Lost & Found section. Hoping someone will claim her.
    Thanks Kristine for hosting her

  • Kristine Cloud 30 year resident of North Center

    Thanks, Jodi! She is currently in our front entryway, sheltering out of the storm. I wish I could let her in the house, but she would NOT be welcomed by the boy cats! But she's been eating a bunch and seems very at-home on the front porch. She gets regular visits by the neighborhood kids, too.
