Kouk's Closed?

My husband and I went there the other day, and it was closed. I peeked inside and the place looked cleaned out. There was no sign on the window with any explanation. My husband called the number to see if maybe there was an answering machine message with some sort of clarification, but the number was disconnected.

Does anyone know what happened??

  • EBKitty Stalking around EB

    I read somewhere they were remodeling and maybe changing the business model all together but were non-committal about the topic. They had business so it seems incredible they would close. They had regulars. Don't know if they are on this board.

  • Passed by the other day. There is a paper in the window. Could be a permit. I didn't stop to read.has anyone walked by to see whats up? Fingers crossed!

Chuy for Mayor! Correction

My mistake. But my point is not so much where Emanuel was born as to his being primarily raised on the North Shore. His privileged upbringing along with amassing a 16 million dollar fortune within a two year period has distanced him both financially and mentally from what the average Chicago citizen endures on a daily basis. Which is part of the reason why he is so quick to have citizens bear the brunt of the cost of his programs and pet projects, such as the 140 million dollars to DePaul University while Chicagoans struggle with parking fines, red light/speed camera fines, ever increasing utility fees and property tax increases.

    rogerparker, You want to talk about benefits, let's talk about Emanuel's benefits. Like when he earned 16 million dollars in 2 years as an investment banker even though he hardly had any experience in that field. Oh wait a minute, he did have experience in that field, kinda, like when he was a well paid director of scandal plagued Fredie Mac, which again was a job his resume was really not suited for. But hey with his connections the world is your oyster. Only trouble is, his connections aren't doing much for Chicago, although they certainly are fattening his recently 30 million dollar campaign war chest! Garcia's connection pales in comparison to Emanuel's connections. For more about them read:

  • Mr Garcia is the focus of Chicago voters dissatisfaction with Blue dog Dems. He, like former U.S. Representative Michael Patrick Flanagan,is in the right place at the right time.

Chuy For Mayor!

Rahm Emanuel is a multimillionaire, suburban born and bred arrogant, elitist who no more cares about Chicago, it's citizens, employees and least it's retirees than the man in the moon. He'll have moved on in 4 years leaving a path of destruction in his place while enhancing his reputation on the national stage. He already is eliminating health insurance for retirees and if the courts allow it his next target will be the pensions of thousands and thousands of workers....

Rahm Emanuel is a multimillionaire, suburban born and bred arrogant, elitist who no more cares about Chicago, it's citizens, employees and least it's retirees than the man in the moon. He'll have moved on in 4 years leaving a path of destruction in his place while enhancing his reputation on the national stage. He already is eliminating health insurance for retirees and if the courts allow it his next target will be the pensions of thousands and thousands of workers. Mayor Daley destroyed the financial solvency of this city and Emanuel has done nothing but dig a deeper hole. Through back room deals he give millions of City money to his fat cat billionaire friends and proposes to give 1 billion dollars to DePaul University to fund the building of a new arena, while he bleeds the citizens dry with red light cameras, skyrocketing parking fees and soon I'm sure, huge property tax increases

  • TeamGarrido tries these same rumors for the fourth, fifth, sixth time?
    Are the TeamGarrido All-Stars tiring of being asked to repeatedly lie?

  • I like Rahm, He's been there for me when I needed him.

    Tom,
    Proving that a lane reduction will not be a problem is a meme worth debunking.
    A problem to whom and what is the nature of the problem that you raise?
    It will show us what car traffic coping strategies are employed to avoid the construction.

    There are several functional classifications of street, in descending order in the 45th:
    Interstate: I-90, obviously
    Freeway or Expressway: none, the Elgin-O'Hare is an example
    Other Principal Arterial: Cicero,Irving
    Minor Arterial: Nagle, Central, Pulaski, Lawrence/Gunnison, Foster
    Major Collector: Austin, Laramie, Addison, Montrose, Bryn Mawr, Elston, Milwaukee, Higgins, NWHwy,
    Minor Collector: None

    Which major collector has four dedicated traffic lanes? Only a portion of Milwaukee and that's why it is out of place in the road network, and allows speeding and unsafe driver behavior due to the excess traffic capacity and failure to design for safety for all users. Milwaukee, Metra to Elston, is a remnant of the car-centric design ethic that kills cities, it is the problem.

  • Tom

    PAC52us, I see your point. If traffic can okay with a construction closure. A permanent properly designed lane reduction would be even better.

Correction to an earlier post regarding Rahm Emanuel.

The amount of City money that Emanuel is providing regarding the DePaul project is $140 million not $1 billion.

What are the rules about an Alderman using City Vehicles to Campaign?

Does anyone know the laws about an Alderman using a city vehicle driven by a city employee to get to a political event? This video appears to show Alderman Mary O'Connor arriving at the Northwest Side Irish Parade in a City Vehicle driven by a City Employee. Did tax payers pay for the gas or the employees time? Does anyone know if she broke the law here?

  • Interesting how this very same topic was also on facebook on the 41st Ward citizens blog. Also on the blog was the topic about Napolitano using city equipment for political purposes all because he has a picture on his mailer of himself in his CFD uniform in front of a fire engine. The owner of the page didn't like that I disagreed with his/her take on either so called abuse of city property and has blocked me from commenting on any more posts.

  • Your question should be did Rahm get driven to a parade by a team of much higher paid city employees? And in a very expensive city vehicle? At least in this case the city employee was already working the parade and probably picked her up close by in the ward. Not a big deal and i am sure not an ethics violation. Worry about the important things will ya. By the way i am a supporter of her opponent.
