anyone have free moving boxes?

Does anyone in the Lincoln Park or near areas have extra boxes laying around that I could have for free? I can pick them up!

  • There are a bunch of practically new moving boxes being thrown away in the alley between Sheffield and Poe Street in Lincoln Park

  • Check Craigslist "Free Moving Boxes"

    I just did and there are some in Wicker Park.

  • Call Trader Joes. They get big boxes in the morning and late evening.

Man pees in Jonquil Park

My husband was at Jonquil Park today around 3pm with our 10 month old son. A black male in his mid 40's entered the gated area and in front of my husband and son peed. He was wearing black pants, a black jacket, a bright orange hat and carrying two backpacks one of them camouflage. My husband just scooped up our son and got him out of there. The guy was gone then and he did not call the police. I told him he should have. Makes me sick. My son loves to crawl around the park :(

  • Bill Gordon Professional librarian, proud cat owner, iPad user

    Take a video of the guy using your phone or tablet. Email the vid to your local police station and demand action. If enough people did that sort of thing it just might help.

  • I can appreciate your suggestion, Bill Gorden.

    I would, however, propose that this is a suggestion a little less frightening to a man than a woman.

Empty Storefronts on Clybourn (b/w Fullerton and Ashland)

Does anyone have any info on what is being done with several of the empty storefronts on Clybourn between Fullerton and Ashland? Among some of the places that have closed and/or have been empty for awhile are the Harolds Fried Chicken Place, the place right next to that (says Illuminati on the stone), Polka, and the Nail Tyme salon just north of Fullerton. Marshfields Urban Grill is finally going to open in the old pizza spot at Clybourn and Marshfield, but other than that it seems that more is closing than not. Thanks for any info.

  • Add Starbucks (albeit awhile ago) and Spicy Monkey to the list of businesses that have closed on Clybourn. As previously mentioned, I'd imagine the rents as well as the rules and red tape which the city typically forces leasers to deal with are very prohibitive.

  • Sucks that no new news has popped up about ace bar. I DID notice a ladder and some things going on in that former starbucks on webster though! Also add that websters wine bar moved out and who knows what's going on with that taq haus joint.... On a positive...

    Sucks that no new news has popped up about ace bar. I DID notice a ladder and some things going on in that former starbucks on webster though! Also add that websters wine bar moved out and who knows what's going on with that taq haus joint.... On a positive note it looks like they are breaking ground on those aforementioned units next to taco burrito house on fullerton ( 24 units) and theres been tons of infill on montana row. Hopefully this density will help businesses thrive in the vicinity.

Trim Carpenter?

I had a water leak (ugh) through the top of my sliding glass door and I need to find a carpenter (a trim carpenter, I think) to replace the water damaged wood around the top and side of the window frame. Has anyone had this type of work done who can recommend a service provider? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

  • Mr. Eric near north full timer

    You just need a good carpenter. Call Tom at 7735929150. Tell him Eric from orchard park recommended him to you. Good luck.

  • You can also have Salvador at JD construction quote you on your job. He used to be the main contractor at Master Handyman so look up the reviews on yelp. His cell is 773-620-4115. He does great work and is reasonable. He has done 6 projects, large and small, and are very happy with his work.

  • You might give TrimLogic a call. They specialize in custom trim work. Might be more specialized than what you need, but thought you might want to take a look.

Fantasy football draft party

I'm looking for a spot to hold a fantasy football draft party this year. Preferably a sports bar with wifi. Any suggestions?

  • Ty T Native Texan. 5 years in LP.

    Not a sports bar, but the new place Beermiscuous is really cool and I think they have a little private room you can book. Or you can probably just hang out on the couches and drink awesome beer while drafting.
