Police 6000 block of Kenmore?

Police are swarming the street. What's goin on?

  • I'm curious too. I saw them sweeping all the way between Sheridan and Broadway up to Glenlake from my balcony, even sent a search team around the Emanuel Congregation parking lot. Definitely looking for someone.

Chicago Fire (the Show)

Has anyone else ever noticed the crew on Chicago Fire seem to cover most of the city and all their fires are major and have some sort of big drama? Yet 5 minutes later they are back at the Firehouse, unscathed, sootless and back to their personal drama No small cooking fires or false alarms for Firehouse 51!

  • chrisfinn bornagain chicagoan

    Read an article in the Sun a while back about this shows. The technical advisor is a retired CFD Chief. He recommended this particular Fire house for it's location. Of course anyone who watches the show knows that the view from this Fire House shows the Sears Tower. And Like Sandy says they really can't use "real" addresses. Although in one episode they used an addy like 4315 N Michigan ave. which of course would be in the lake, funny.

  • Duncs..that crew is way more multi cultural then any group of people I see in the city!

Y'know -- March 4 was Chicago's Anniversary ...

How come neither of the bleepers on the ballot thought to mention that?

  • People remember the anniversary of the 1837 incorporation every 50 years - that's often enough.A possibly more important anniversary for us is July 15. That's when, in 1889, 200,000 residents of areas surrounding Chicago (including Edgewater) became part of Chicago, quadrupling its geography and making it the "second city" (New York City was still bigger).

  • SonjaF Astrologer, writer

    You are wrong -- Daley celebrated it yearly with cake at the library. I learnt that Chuy did indeed bring a cake to some function yesterday ... but Rahm just boohooed in a new annoying ad ... it's on the Chicago seal for godsake March 4, 1837 on his official stationary ...

Baseball/Little League in Edgewater/Uptown/Rogers Park

Wondering if someone can tell me about the baseball/little league options in my area. My son is 6, and played one year of Little League last year (but in NY) He'd like to play baseball again. The only option I could find online was Honer Park. Is there anything else? We're close enough that we could play in Evanston also.

Stressed out? Andersonville’s RE: chiropractic + wellness has an unconventional cure…one that will also benefit a local humane society! Inspired by this video, “Kitten Therapy” will be held on March 14th from 10am-1pm at 5347 N. Clark #2. For a $5 donation to Tree House (or a donation of items like litter, cat food and […]

  • Tree House does terrific work with its TNR (trap, neuter, return for feral cats). I've supported it as I can and it has a wonderful availability of adoptable cats. Many are "seniors" and need their "forever home." Kitten therapy or cat-in-your-lap therapy? The best and relaxing for both feline and human. Support this event if you can.

Cable outage

Does anyone have any information about the ComCast cable outage in Edgewater? They're probably talking about it on the news, but since there's no cable.... ;-)

  • My cable went out on me on Superbowl Sunday (of course we were having a snow storm and everyone was blaming it on that) Anyways I called comcast the next day to complain about it and they gave me a $20 credit to my bill. So at lease call them and get a credit!

Marty’s Martini Bar Anticipated Expansion Canceled

With a die-hard following of cocktail lovers, Marty’s Martini Bar at 1511 W Balmoral Ave. has been filling up glasses with spirits for ten years now. The narrow bar has a charm of its own with a very intimate setting. However, the small space can get very crowded as the ever-growing number of patrons come in to celebrate. Over the last year […]

  • I am sure that they will since they been there for years... but I understand that another cocktail lounge is going to take over the space.. so it will thin the crowd so that you can get in..

  • I agree with Teddy…and part of the atmosphere of Marty's is the crowd and wall to wall people. Yes, a larger space would have been nice, but Elixir will be nice to go to as an over flow or another option. Personally, I am psyched for Replay. Forget about laundry…my quarters are going there instead!!!
