shots wicker park

has anyone heard 8 shots around wicker park today at 3am?

  • Also heard this on 2100 block of W Le Moyne at around 3:00 am on Monday night/Tues morning. Super loud.

  • I also heard it near Evergreen & Leavitt.

    Kat, the simulated gunshots for 'Empire' happened about 2 weeks ago, so it certainly wasn't that.

Seamstress Recommendations

Hello! I'm looking for a good seamstress in the area who can alter a bridesmaid dress (it requires more than just hemming). If anyone has any recommendations for someone they trust it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  • I would second the recommendation of Fame Cleaners on Division. I've been going there for seven years, consistently having clothes altered in big and small ways, and the alterations are always spot on.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged.

    +1 for Fame! Vivian is great.

Remodeling Recommendations

Hi! We are looking to make some renovations to our condo, everything from painting cabinets and adding a kitchen backspash to remodeling our master bathroom and adding in-unit laundry. Any recommendations for a contractor?

  • Hi Jessica -

    Hi Jessica -

    We used Bryan Morrison at Nest Construction - 312.451.6690 and had an excellent experience. Incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship. He does a variety of things but he would be my first call for almost any project.

    He did an incredible job on a roof deck, new door and frame, some custom woodwork, and a variety of smaller projects. This winter he we will have him back for some tile work and custom cabinetry. On top I felt like his prices were VERY fair. Its so hard to know what you are going to get but I am glad to pass him along.

    Anyway - good luck!

  • I highly recommend Design Invention, call Peter at 773-787-9776. The work he does is excellent, and his prices are reasonable and fair. He is also very responsive and honest; he would never do any work that didn't need to be done or cut corners.

    He has won a Super Service...

    He has won a Super Service Award on Angies list and had consistent A ratings from them as well. A close friend had a kitchen/bathroom remodel and central air conditioning installed by Peter and could not be more thrilled with the outcome and the entire process from start to finish.

    Even if you might already be considering someone else, you should give Peter a call and let him give you a quote as well.
