Aggressive charity solicitors

I do some errands around the center of the grid, and it never fails: a pack of three vested kids trying to get you to support Greenpeace, Children international and a few new ones.
I walk very hard to the other part of the sidewalk and one of them may cut off my path when it's clear to anybody I don't want to interact.
Right in my path. In my face.
The poor will always be with us, but those guys are meek and sit with their signs for the most part.
These kids are behind offensive to me and I think it shouldn't be allowed, this forcible charity begging.

    In the UK, they call them Chuggers, which stands for Charity Muggers. I think that about fits.

    You can do a search on EB and you'll get many results for this same question. I like http://www.catsinthecity.biz/

  • Try Purr (previously Chicago Cat Sitters). I've been using Robert's services for years — he's very reliable. Website: http://purrinc.com/.

    Not sure if Cats in the City (mentioned above) serves the Loop. According to their website: "Chicago service neighborhoods/areas: Rogers Park, Edgewater, Lincoln Square, Old Irving, Logan Square, West Wrigleyville, Wrigleyville, Lakeview, West Lakeview."

New coffeehouse in West Loop

A new, independent coffeehouse is coming to West Loop! The Ugly Mug Cafe, in West Town, is opening it's second location in early 2015. What's interesting is they are seeking customers and new neighbors to fund a community-sourced loan for the costs of construction. They are choosing this type of loan instead of traditional financing because they believe in the benefit of community involvement to grow the cafe and the neighborhood. FYI, they built their patio this year using this same lending method.

Check out how this works and how you can invest in the neighborhood you love:
