Update: Jackson Park Dog Park

Added to the agility training course:
construction horse
suspended tire
cones

Many thanks to the anonymous benefactor of the bucket of fetching balls. I moved it all to the car, as balls go missing, i'll distribute them among the three Wooflawn dog parks. https://www.facebook.com/wooflawn Speaking of which, if anyone has any old toys your pup has lost interest in, please consider donating them to the dog park to give them a second life.

Driving Directions: LSD to Science Drive, go south on Columbia Drive beyond MSI's southern parking lot where you'll find the bridge to the tennis courts. Parking by the courts is free. The 'dog park' is located in the NE court enclosure. See bird's eye view => http://chicago.everyblock.com/pets/apr17-jackson-park-dog-park-6094931/photos/

    FYI: There is an on going outdoor social/party all summer long... saturday and sunday late-evenings/night all parking is jam packed, people everywhere. I found this out the hard way this past sunday; on my way in i was struggling to find a place to park and on my way out it was bumper to bumper. No one was partying near or in the courts when i was there but i've seen evidence of such after weekends past.

    Found an abandoned hula hoop on the way to the park, incorporated it into the center of the agility course. There are two other locations that i think such a setup would work well. Any hula hoops in need of a home please drop off at the park and i'll put them to good use. https://flic.kr/p/oxiS17

Promontory Restaurant/Bar to Open Shortly Before the Apocalypse

Oft-delayed restaurant and live music venue, Promontory, is scheduled to open as the End of Days approaches, according to informed sources. "Our two outdoor patios will offer splendid views of the Four Horsemen as they ride in to lay waste to humanity," said an unnamed soon to be out of work employee. "Try our BBQ" he added.

    Adrienne, I crashed the friends and family event on the 17th and have legitimately dined and drank at The Promontory two other times since the official grand opening last Wednesday. So far, I can safely say that it was worth the wait. Working my way through both food and drink menus with good results. As of now, the summer fruit trifle is my favorite food item. Eagerly awaiting the opening of the upstairs live music venue. Why didn't Diana and other people there of whom I inquired about you recognize your name?

  • I did not work on this project. My boss has several other businesses that I work on, on the commercial real estate side, but I stay away from the restaurant stuff. But I'm glad you enjoyed it! The first show upstairs is in August. I am excited too!

Moving here

Interested in renting an apartment here? Any suggestions which areas of hyde park are more desirable than others?

  • 50th and Woodlawn is in the Kenwwod neighborhood and has the benefits of a park and minimal car traffic to the east and to the west of there. Hyde Park is just to the south and wil be adding more eateries and a Whole Foods. Here is the link to the Chamber of Commerce events as well as there are plent of family things to do at Nichols Park and various other parks throughout the area. http://www.hydeparkchamberchicago.org/news-events

  • We live near 50th and Woodlawn...family friendly area, access to buses on 51st, well utilized play area for small children in the park, lots of organized sports activities
