Looking for new Deli in Rogers Park

I'm working on a development and looking for an established and or to be established Jewish Deli to bring into Rogers Park. This would be a sit down restaurant with carry outs and possible delivery. If you are interested or know anyone, please contact me at Century 21 Universal via email: reid.hyams@century21.com Thanks!

  • sam

    Man, this is an outstanding idea. But re: the point above, I don't see why it should have to be kosher. Many of the great deli's of the world aren't--like Katz's in New York.

    The key thing for me world be good, homemade, authentic food. Pastrami, corned beef, turkey have got to all be made in house, along with other classics like matzah ball soup and knishes. Who wouldn't want to go to a place like that?

  • Reid Hyams X-ART Entertainment / Century 21 Universal

    I never said it has to be Kosher. I stated a "Jewish Deli" and we'll take it from there. Go Rogers Park!!!

    You don't have to give him credit, if you don't want to. Fact is, there's been steady improvement in the business sector since 2008 in our little neck o' the woods as reflected in employment figures and business growth and expansion (which is, and should go without saying, impacted by all sorts of factors -- local, national and global). I suppose if you're a "glass half empty kinda person" you could re-phrase it to state, "mayor hasn't screwed up the external forces on Chicago business and employment but perhaps, maybe, possibly enhanced it by assisting to effect the lowest unemployment rate since April 2008 and the greatest business relocation and expansion of any US metro area for the second year in a row." Potato/potato; tomato/tomato; same coin, two sides.

  • Since Rahm is slightly more capable than his opponent, I will have to support him even though I will be holding my nose while I vote. While Rahm is a Crony Capitalist who has tossed subsidies in the hundreds of millions of dollars at crony businesses, making them net tax recipients instead of contributors, Chuy is an outright socialist who will give away what remains of the city to the public service unions.

Twisted Tapas Still Going Strong!

I started going to twisted Tapas a year ago February and cannot tell you how many times my husband and friends and I have been there since but I went again just last night! Food is still as excellent as it was a year ago and the staff is just as friendly and fun! It is SO great to see this place continue to do so well. If you haven't been there in a while make sure to get out into what is sure to be the last of winter and have a nice dinner! I think we are all getting cabin fever and tired of going out in the cold!

Bikes N' Roses Youth Lead BIke Repair Initiative loses funding because of our new Governor

David Pohlad who some of you may have known as a server at the Heartland Cafe, is working on a really wonderful initiative with youth in Chicago. They got a big grant from the state of Illinois ($276,000), only to have it frozen as soon as Rauner became governor. Here's the link to the article just written about them.

USPS

I've had terrible mail service lately. It seems that they don't come most days and much of our mail never arrives. Didn't get the January People's Gas bill. I have a weekly magazine subscription and it comes maybe 3 times a month, sometimes a week late. Has anyone else had similar problems? I've notified the alderman's office and tried to call USPS but I sat on hold for 30 minutes and had to give up.

  • I'm changing my tune! A couple of weeks ago I stated that I haven't had any trouble with the RP PO. Well now that is no longer true. Last week, we only received our mail (3) times. And the same the week before. RP PO "lost" a package I was waiting to receive and my friend told me about a PO carrier beating up a guy on the street; a couple of weeks ago: Damien I think (can't remember).

  • I wanted to bump this thread to the top. Finally got a tax return document that was returned to sender--a month late! Now I'm having issues with paychecks not being delivered (apparently I jinxed myself with my last post on this thread). So I just called the Congresswoman's office today and it sounds like they're making progress on this issue. Every complaint helps support our case for improvements to mail delivery, so if you're still having trouble please call or email them. Their phone number is (773) 506-7100.

Appeal Process

Has anyone filed any forms to appeal the value of their condo? I have the 2015 real estate assessed valuation appeal form but I just came across another form on the cook county website listing a very long list of documents to submit, along with pics of your building. I'm trying to figure out what's actually needed to appeal.

  • That's my issue. I live in a 4 flat. We don't really have a traditional hoa and the paperwork needed to file an appeal for all 4 units is ridiculous so it makes us want to just file for our own. Much less paperwork to gather!

  • Nancy B. Co-Owner Gold'N Pear Catering

    They said smaller buildings often file together. The condo form has space for up to 8 units to file together. The info gaterhering just has to do with any paperwork you have that proves your case i.e. recent refi, new people buying in your building or any evidence of another similar condo selling for less than your assessment recently.

bulls win without rose, butler

The bulls playoff hopes seemed dim with news of rose' s newest injury. But the surgery went well and we expect him back in a few weeks. Then just as fans breathed a sigh of relief, butler suffers an injury and is sidelined. But the team worked hard last night and pulled out a victory anyway. I'm impressed with our depth and the players stepping up and making the most of an opportunity. Still, this has been a weird year for the bulls and the league overall: young guns, injuries aplenty and odd slumps.

How will the bulls fare down the stretch, as the season winds down and the playoffs begin?

Voodoo on the beach?

A coworker thinks creepy deer head scarecrow I saw today on the beach might be voodoo. Anyone know what this means?

  • Just FYI, this has nothing to do with Vodou. Vodou is practiced mostly by people from Haiti, and many practitioners of Vodou are also Catholics.

    Roosters and goats and pigs can be sacrificed in Vodou, but they would not be displayed afterwards. They are a gift to the saints (also known as the loa).

    My guess is that this is some kind of art project by college students.

    With all due respect to Lisa in RP, VOODOO originated in West Africa. It was 'bastardized' by the powerholding majority, when it accompanied slaves brought from Africa to 'the new world.' It had been an oral tradition, but when put in writing, it became VOODOU. Thus, Haitian VOODOU was mixed with Christianity, which had been unknown in West Africa, at the time.
    West African practitioners of VOODOO present animal sacrifice to spirit, in thanks(giving;). Typically, it is then buried. Unfortunately for those of us who inhabit the areas where sacrifice is safest to perform in our community, some eccentrics leave the carcasses, to 'show off' their kill.

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

Was I supposed to ask Kathy to talk to Heather Steans to ask her to talk to her person in Springfield to report that the CW called me finally but he was verbally abusive and the client was offended and demands an apology?? Was I supposed to write a letter to CW's supervisor, who I don't even know the name? THEY DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE LETTERS! Or faxes. Was I supposed to go down to the office in Skokie, take a number, wait all day to talk to an intake worker to complain about the verbally abusive CW? I was angry abt the way the CW spoke to me, but my real concern was to get the extension to get the app. in. I got that (going through my state senator). That was the issue. The issue was resolved. There's no point in trying to be a Prima Donna. I got what I needed. I let go of the rest. I contented myself with the knowledge that the CW is in his own private hell with that job and the certainty that my household income is probably twice his. I keep my priorities straight and I keep moving forward. Life is too short.

I previously had our family's prescriptions at Walgreen's, where it was frequently crowded and the pharmacists and techs often seem super busy. Ever since switching over, I've found that the pharmacists at Jewel really do have time to answer questions, look up your meds, etc. One time when I had asked to add flavoring to my son's medicine (which Walgreens had previously done), the pharmacist actually came and found me in the shopping aisles to ask a question and tell me about how the flavoring could effect the medicine if it wasn't stored properly, and that this medicine was already very sweet and might not really need flavoring. Wow, that was really great to know they were being so vigilant. Just wanted to pass it on and give some compliments to the Jewel pharmacists. :)

  • Thanks, Helen. I'll give it a whirl!

    Couldn't agree more about Osco pharmacy. I switched from Walgreens to Osco on Clark in Andersonville years ago. Have had all positive experiences - can't say the same for Walgreens whose worse mistake was miscounting pills and blaming me. Since Jewel/Osco changed ownership, however, other nonprescription items are sparse. CVS is great for this regarding selection and prices.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Below is a reprint of the earlier notice I posted describing the proposal and its history:

Funding for design improvements was approved by the voters in the 2011 Participatory Budgeting election, but the City delayed implementation of the plan until Peoples Gas finished with its gas main installation work in the area. The gas main work is now completed.

The plan proposed by the City of Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is illustrated in the photo below.

The plan extends the curb at the southwest corner of the intersection to reduce the angle between Touhy and Rogers and shortening the crosswalk at that location from 100 feet to 40 feet.

  • Doesn't sound like CDOT needs or wants community input. Is this just their presentation of what is planned for eventual work?

Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 4th, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (at the Lake).

The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment.

Because of the improving economy, the average assessed valuation for property in Rogers Park has increased 12.75%. If your 2015 assessment increased more than 12.75% over your 2014 assessment, you should seriously consider appealing your assessment.

If you own property in Rogers Park Township (Devon to the Evanston border, Kedzie to the Lake), you have until Friday, March 20th, to submit an appeal to the Cook County Assessor.

At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor's office and how an appeal is granted. Please bring your property tax bill in order to more efficiently file an appeal. Staff from the Assessor's office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.

If you are unable to attend the workshop, the Cook County Assessor's website provides an overview of the property tax appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment. For information on the appeals process and to file an appeal online, visit:

http://www.cookcountyassessor.com/frequentlyaskedquestions.aspx

Make sure you file your appeal before the March 20th deadline.

For assistance in filing your appeal, contact my staff assistant Michael Land at mike.land@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

A woman just knocked on the door of my apartment (private, double-locked apartment building) claiming to be from "Liberty Power." I didn't engage with her. Anybody seen this? Looked way bogus.

    Joseph, there are numerous threads on EveryBlock with complaints about workers claiming to represent power and gas companies getting into buildings in Rogers Park. Make them leave your building.

    Politely decline them, maybe snap a discreet photo, close the door and call 911 with a description and tell them people are trespassing in your building. Which they are.
    Enough of these boneheads get hauled off maybe they'll cease this sort of garbage.

  • I double checked online. It says energetic supplier, makes energy from windmills. And agree with their aggressive sale method, they should to let people know about that other way.
    The woman explained that my electric bill will remain exactly the same, with the fix rates for energy(not including delivery and taxes)
    And that I can change my mind in 10 days

Good-bye, MorWay

All but one business in the strip mall at Morse and Wayne has closed shop for good. Word on the street is Jennifer Pritzker bought it. The lone holdout is Vic's Pharmacy, who has allegedly gone to court - and was granted to stay until May 2015.

One can only speculate as to how big of a parking garage will be built in it's place?

One can also speculate as to how long it will be before Ms. Pritzker buy's out JB's Pizza?

south of Howard/west of Damen safe for new families?

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

Does anyone have any insight into what sort of walk safety/crime rates are like around Seeley & Fargo? My wife likes to go running and we like to be outdoors a lot. Peckish Pig is right there on Howard and we love that place!

This apartment is amazing but that police camera box really freaked us out!
We are seasoned city livers.. We don't get freaked out by everything.. Its just I never lived near one of those cameras. I usually only see those in only pretty darn bad neighborhoods (when I lived in Philly.)

Any insight into this specific area of Rogers Park would be amazing!

Thanks neighbors!

    POLICE CAMERAS -- Peg, the second police camera does NOT imply anything about the area. Remember those 3 sting operations I mentioned? That is why the camera is at Birchwood & Hoyne. We supported police in those sting operations. It remained because of issues at Howard & Hoyne, which have substantially declined after we, residents, "dragged" the convenience store owner before hearings at Chicago Business Affairs office (and they threatened revocation of his license). Residents requesting the removal of camera is as onerous of a process as is residents requesting a camera. We have other priorities at the moment (park improvement, neighborhood block events, etc.) that take priority.

  • Really great of you and your neighbors to get in the game like that, Bernard. No question that blue light cameras are reason for potential new residents to be concerned. But if I understand correctly that you are taking steps to have a camera removed because the area has calmed, that's completely awesome.
