Brown Sack closing?

I called on Tuesday to get some noms. They happened to be closed for the day, but their voicemail announced it was their last week of business. Can someone confirm? Will be devastated if so

  • Thanks Chandler. Phew I'm so relieved that they're not closing forever. I hope Brown Sack 2.0 is just as good as or better than before. I'll be upset if they get the Marble treatment which was fine as it was but new owners claimed it would have better food, nicer...

    Thanks Chandler. Phew I'm so relieved that they're not closing forever. I hope Brown Sack 2.0 is just as good as or better than before. I'll be upset if they get the Marble treatment which was fine as it was but new owners claimed it would have better food, nicer cocktails, etc. So far it has only managed to have worse everything and higher prices. And for reasons I can't comprehend you have to go up to the bar yourself to order something. I guess the higher prices don't include pay for waitresses, but I digress...

  • I know what my dinner plans are tonight.

    What's sad is here a good business closes because someone else is taking over the space. With all the empty storefronts we have in Logan Square, (like most on Fullerton west of Kimball) it's a shame that a new place can't open in one of these empty storefronts rather than displace a working business. I know the woman who owns the building where the Brown Sack is located. She said earlier in the year she was moving, so maybe she sold her home & the building. I live close to the Sack & remember the building was a complete dump - they spent so much sweat equity to get it into shape.

Trails & food - Starved Rock

I am planning a day trip to Starved rock this Saturday and wondered what trail to take. I'm looking for something around 4 miles roundtrip, wonderful canyons, but great lookout points as well. Also, I am looking for a great spot to eat around that area, which is quaint and local. Thanks!

  • There's a great sandwich and ice cream shop in town outside of the park. I don't recall the name. I hope it's still there. The lodge inside the park also has good food.

On the recommendation of one of the eb folks, I ordered these tiles....the theory being they can be used to track pets (if enough people have the smartphone app) kind of doing what we do here when someone loses an animal. eager to try it out and see if it works. just got an email that my pre-ordered tag are preparing to ship. will let you know if it will (or could) work on animals...if not, i'll just use it for my keys, glasses, or ventra hanger tag that i constantly lose anyway.

Did you lose a young cat, black with white markings?

There is a little lost kitty in the courtyard of my building. A neighbor is attempting to get him/her inside for the night. Is anyone missing a young black cat with some white marks? It is lost in the area east of Kimball and south of Milwaukee. I didn't want to take a picture because it might have scared her away. Looked clean and timid, like someone's pet. If you've lost your little one and the description fits, please post a pic and I'll let you know if it looks like the same cat.

El Stops with Only One Exit?

Recent renovations to the California blue line stop have made it painfully clear that the CTA never intended to improve the actual functionality of the station.

Recent renovations to the California blue line stop have made it painfully clear that the CTA never intended to improve the actual functionality of the station. While thinking about the potential hazard of having only one conduit from the ground to each platform (a possible choke point, and the danger of having to cross California with no crosswalk), I got to thinking: how many El stops are there out there that have only one entrance / exit to each platform? I cannot think of another north side blue line stop that does, but maybe my memory isn't so good. Are there red line stops with only one entrance / exit?

If any of us want to petition the CTA about this at some point in future, it'd be useful to recognize how rare this phenomena is.

  • Alya A. Bucktown to Logan

    The station at Roosevelt also connects three lines, which only happens one other place outside the loop that I can think of.

    As was said above, short of demolishing buildings/spending millions of capital the CTA does not have, unfortunately making each station accessible is just not in the cards right now.

    Seriously though, I have been acquainted with the Roosevelt stop since 1985. They build a nice tunnel to connect the subway and the elevated lines, but the main entrance is a disaster, and the actual subway platform is pretty much unchanged (I guess the train tracker info is nice, but that is pretty standard at the big stops).

    Belmont connects three lines as well, and I'd argue the entrance is *far* more welcoming and open/easy to navigate during to rush hour than it was before. The platform seems indistinguishable from the Roosevelt elevated platform.

Just wanted to see if those of you with experience dealing with neighbor/pet issues can offer some advice. My downstairs neighbors are young guys who moved in earlier this year. They have a cat and said that they are now letting their cat (who was never an outdoor cat before) go outside by himself. While I personally don't agree with keeping cats outdoors in the city and would never let my own kitty out, it's not my cat and therefore not really my choice.

The issue I'm having is that this cat seems to not be too content about its new situation, especially with the weather being what it is, and slips into the building every chance he gets. He's spent several nights in another neighbor's apartment who felt bad for him and I have let him briefly into mine (after he followed me inside). He and my kitty didn't get along so out he went.
This morning he was meowing outside my door in the back stairway (probably got in while I was going in and out doing laundry yesterday).

So I guess I'm not sure which side of the intervention line this falls. Do I secretly find this cat a nice home with more doting owners, do I ignore the situation? Just want to get some objective opinions :)

  • maybe someone talked to your neighbors - that's good news to know the cat is still cared for.

  • i did give my neighbor a flyer for a free treehouse fix and talk to her about getting her cat fixed. i didn't tell her that said cat was driving my cats crazy by coming in my yard...her kids had told me it was their cat and that she had just had kittens(!) but for whatever reason, cat has not been around.

Kids selling Tribune subscriptions

Does anyone else have kids coming to their house every other week trying to sell subscriptions to the Chicago Tribune?

Does anyone give money to people at their door? Kind of annoyed by it.

    This problem is caused by the employer Youth Workforce on Fullerton(at Western). They saturate Logan Square with young people hocking the paper. I get them twice a month. I quickly explain that I get these requests twice a month and I won't be subscribing. When they are persistent and sometimes aggressive I let them know I think their employer is scamming them by sending them in territory so overrun with requests that the likelihood of a sale is very low.
    Two responses that young people seem to understand.
    "What if I came to you twice a month and asked you buy something you already had (ie cell phone)? would you buy one every two weeks?"
    "What is your address?" WHY " I would like to be able to come by your home and request a DONATION when I am running low on funds."

    I have become so annoyed over the 7+ years living here that I have called the Tribune to complain twice. This falls on deaf ears. They should not be affiliated with Youth Workforce.

    I'm not seeing how Robin's experience equates to Godwin's Law. This came to mind:

    http://econlog.econlib.org/archives/2013/09/hendersons_godw.html

    "When people in a political discussion want to put down other people who even mention Hitler, they will invoke Godwin's Law even if the person compared no one to Nazis or Hitler."

    That said, I could care less how McDonald's advertises as far as language. If anything, most people's distaste comes from how they target children with their happy meal toys. It's the Espanol-speakers that ought to be offended here, if anyone.

  • Bearmosa Resident of Hermosa

    I worked in marketing. There's a lot of importance placed on language spoken in the home. That's the language of family and friends... brands want to be your friend. When you see an ad in Spanish next time assume this and don't be offended or assume that the targeted audience doesn't know English. They most likely do.

Hello everyone,

Two days ago a van pulled up next to Chief O'Neills and left a super cute brown puppy. She appears to be around 4 months pit bull mix, well fed and happy. Is anyone missing a cute little puppy?

  • Yes, try posting on lost dogs Illinois. Cicero and the SW side has recently had quite a few dogs stolen. I'm not saying it doesn't happen all over Chicago- but for some reason last week I saw quite a few more posting than usual. Also, you should probably head to any reputable vet and get the dog scanned for a chip.
