Any bars or restaurants hiring in the neighborhood?

Hi everyone!

I just moved here from Arkansas and my job hunt is growing sluggish. I've heard from a lot of people living in Chicago that it's a lot about who you know within establishments.

If anyone could give me some leads on places hiring, I would greatly appreciate it and would love to treat you to a few brewskis.

Cheers!

Beat 1221 CAPS Meeting Wednesday at 7 pm

The Beat 1221 CAPS Meeting is Wednesday at 7 pm at the Smith Park Field House and will feature two very special guests.

Unless they are needed elsewhere, we will have a demonstration by a K9 officer and his four-legged partner. An added benefit -- the officer was formerly assigned to the 13th and 12th Districts, most recently as a member of the Tact Team, so knows our area very well.

Beat 1221 borders are Chicago to Kinzie and Wood to Kedzie.

Need a water meter installed, referrals please! West town

I am having the hardest time finding a plumber to install a water meter at my 3 flat. We had a plumber lined up and then he backed out because he didn't want to go get the license and meter from the city. Lots of plumbers have said they don't do it. The city is requiring that we install one or face fines.

Anyone have a reasonably priced suggestion? We had one several thousand dollar estimate (over the phone, without looking at the property) and I can't believe it would cost that much to install so would like to get several more estimates before committing.

Thank you!

  • Do you own the property? If so, and you pay the Chicago Water Department, have the Metersave water meter put in at no cost, and you get a 7 year pricing guarantee. I had mine done, and it beats estimated bills.

  • Thanks for the referrals, I'll try them. I had already tried the city but they know it is a 3 flat and won't install it as we don't qualify for the metersave program. They do provide the meter for free but the licensed plumber has to pick it up.

Dear Neighbors,

CHIDITAROD X IS COMING!

When: Saturday March 7, 2015

CHIditarod is celebrating its 10th year of fighting hunger in Chicago. Over the past 10 years we have collected more than 100,000 pounds of food for the Greater Chicago Food Depository and raised $100,000+ to fund Chicago Area programs that fight hunger.

The CHIditarod X course will take racers through the West Town, Noble Square, Ukrainian Village, East Village, Near West Side and Wicker Park Neighborhoods. We are dedicated to enriching the neighborhoods CHIditarod visits and we take trash and recycling very seriously; advocating a “leave-no-trace” policy to all of our participants and volunteers, including taking shopping carts home. On Saturday, as the race comes to an end, we will have teams of “sweepers” that will comb through the event routes to pick up any abandoned shopping carts or race related debris.

If you witness any team that deserves to be in the wall of shame, find an abandoned shopping cart, have any complaints or just want to tell us how awesome we are doing, contact us via e-mail at neighbors@chiditarod.org. Keep an eye out for some amazing cart themes and let us know your favorites!

Thank you for helping us fight hunger!

Mush!

Potholes in alleys

This may be a dumb question since there are thousands of potholes on the main streets that haven't been repaired, but I put in two requests to the city website to fix a crater in our alley after emailing our landlord. Both requests were later confirmed as "fulfilled" by the alert system, but nothing was fixed.

Has anyone had any luck with the city fixing alley potholes or do I need to get out my shovel in the spring?

  • Jason is correct. Instead of using multiple reports to set priorities, the city uses them to extend the time they have to complete them. It's all about the statistics.

  • Pray to the God of your choice about it.

What is the city planning on doing with the closed school on Oakley and Lake St?

Does anyone have any idea what the city is planning to do with that land or building? Right now and in the summer it is not much of a park and seems to be only utilized by homeless people who wait for services from St. Malachy's across the street. It would make a great space for a dog park.
