Twisted Tapas Still Going Strong!

I started going to twisted Tapas a year ago February and cannot tell you how many times my husband and friends and I have been there since but I went again just last night! Food is still as excellent as it was a year ago and the staff is just as friendly and fun! It is SO great to see this place continue to do so well. If you haven't been there in a while make sure to get out into what is sure to be the last of winter and have a nice dinner! I think we are all getting cabin fever and tired of going out in the cold! Thanks Twisted!!

Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box.

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

Does anyone have any insight into what sort of walk safety/crime rates are like around Seeley & Fargo? My wife likes to go running and we like to be outdoors a lot. Peckish Pig is right there on Howard and we love that place!

This apartment is amazing but that police camera box really freaked us out!
We are seasoned city livers.. We don't get freaked out by everything.. Its just I never lived near one of those cameras. I usually only see those in only pretty darn bad neighborhoods (when I lived in Philly.)

Any insight into this specific area of Rogers Park would be amazing!

Thanks neighbors!

    Our best friends have a condo at Fargo & Seeley and though there is the usual RP drug traffic, it's no more dangerous than anywhere else in RP (and probably safer than parts of the Corridor a mile southeast).

    Our best friends have a condo at Fargo & Seeley and though there is the usual RP drug traffic, it's no more dangerous than anywhere else in RP (and probably safer than parts of the Corridor a mile southeast). Safety and civic spirit varies block-to-block and even building-to-building. Last July 4th a bunch of us grilled on the patio on the building's north side and felt perfectly safe. IMHO, scarcity of free parking is a bigger problem than is perceived street crime (Welcome to Rogers No-Park). A blue-light police camera, rather than being a hallmark of a dangerous neighborhood. is instead rather reassuring in that preventive measures are being taken. (Unless, of course, you are inclined to tinfoil chapeaux and a fear of black helicopters....)

    You don't really know a nabe until you've spent time at night in it. I think that pocket around Fargo and Seeley is very pretty, but personally do not feel safe there, and much prefer the area around Devon or Peterson... even though Devon LOOKS rather blighted through there. The area close to Devon and Ridge is by and large very safe, with polite, quiet people and I feel OK walking about at night. Spend time in both areas at night, and also check out the area around Indian Boundary Park, which IMO is a lovely nabe for a family- very beautiful, very clean, and very, very safe. There are many extremely large, beautiful apts around that area for reasonable rents and prices, and there is more parking there.

RP Election Ennui

Yesterday's election numbers are interesting. Terrible turn-out overall throughout the City. The cold probably had something to do with it, but I think it was also a sense that people just aren't very supportive of the candidates who are/were running. I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

Anyhow, in our Ward, here are the numbers:

1) We have 25,105 registered voters.
2) 8,380 voted yesterday (33.38%).
3) 5,566 voted for Joe (giving him 66.42% of the vote), but only 22.17% of registered voters bothered to vote for him.
4) 2,814 voted for Don (giving him 33.58% of the vote), but only 11.21% of registered voters bothered voting for him.

So, what does RP want in an alderman? Let's describe the experience and qualities we seek in an alderman in this Ward. (Let's try REALLY hard NOT to use this as a chance to bash Joe and/or Don, but instead, design our ideal candidate!)

I'll start the list with the following:
1) Someone willing to lead by talking about the seriousness of the fiscal problems facing the City and that none of the ways to address them will be pleasant (think chemo).
2) Someone who prioritizes education based on what is good for the kids and not what is good for the adults.

Let's keep the list going!!

Plumber needed

Hello, Can any of you recommend a good plumber in the Rogers Park neighborhood? The kitchen sink in my condo unit has been backing up and making gurgling noises. My management company isn't take care of it as quickly or thoroughly as I'd like so I want to take matters into my own hands.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Hi Jessica - you probably don't need a plumber, just a very good handyman. Our family business is AIK Restoration & Repair. Contact Howard at 312-952-5953 or aikrandr@yahoo.com. http://www.yelp.com/biz/aik-restoration-and-repair-chicago?sort_by=rating_desc

  • Not sure but I think a licensed plumber is required if the work is going to be in a condo.

  • JT

    I've been happy with Netzel Plumbers 773-561-0867 at 1822 W Wilson. It's a family owned business.

    I had a clogged bathtub drain. The device the plumber brought wasn't doing the job so he went back to the office to retrieve another tool.

    He was 'off the clock' while he was gone. I was only charged for the actual time he spent unclogging my tub drain.

Help!! State Budget Cuts

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled.

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

  • jldoolittle West Ridge resident since 2005

    Leta D - Apologies, but I don't know where to find the link. I only have a hard copy of the proposed budget. Here are where low-income seniors will see an impact by cuts: Pace Paratransit, RTA's reduced fare program, and medicaid. LIHEAP (utility bill subsidy) would be eliminated.

    Jeanne thanks so much for all the info. I'll put calls into both people in the morning. I'm very disturbed to hear of all the programs for youth and seniors that would be eliminated. All those you mentioned are critical to the population they served. I bristled when I read of the bullying prevention program being gutted. In recent years, there's been growing awareness of, and concern for, the harm done to children targeted by peers who bully them. Maybe because of the rise of social media, or a rash of suicides of young prople, pushed to despair from bullying.I cheered in my head every time I heard a new report on schools and communities launching anti-bullying programs and additions to curriculum. I too was a target of bullies in grade school and no one spoke out against then. It was thought to be an ordinary aspect of growing up. The principal told my mother it's best grown-ups stay out of peer conflicts. Let them work the problems out by themselves, he said. It's an important life skill. No one protected us. No one intervened. We who were bullied learned to suck it up and wait it out. Except the ones driven to suicide, I guess. 45-50 years later, bullying prevention caught on in a big way. I celebrated the movement, and with each new program I heard about, I felt my own traumatic experiences vindicated. If Bruce Rauner had experienced even a fraction of what I suffered, he would agree these are necessary efforts to stop the cycle.

    Hi Ms Pea,

    Here are my suggestions: Stay away from Apartmentfinders, it is a waste of time and energy. Rogers Park Vintage Management (http://www.rpvmhome.com) has places that allows for dogs and it does not seem to have weight restrictions. Someone mentioned Urban Equities and they seem to have some places as well that allow for dogs. Zillow is a good resource and you can set up for notifications so you are notified when places become available.

    Sadly, places that say they will take pets are not always correct. So keep that in mind. There have been at least 3 places that say "pets okay" only to have them say no pets allowed.

    Good luck to you!

Anyone see the person who hit my car?

Hi all, I really hate posting negative things, but this morning we went out to our car parked on Lunt near one of the fire hydrants (legally) and next to an alley to find that someone had slammed into our front driver side bumper and cracked it significantly. They must have it it pretty hard to crack it (a piece was missing), and of course no note was left. We use our car for our catering jobs and having it damaged like that does not look good. If anyone has any information, or saw anything (or if you are the one who hit us...no questions asked, just please come forward), I would really appreciate it!

    Hi Nancy B. I'm very sorry to hear about your car, and hope that either 1) the offender returns and offers a form of compensation, or 2) one of your neighbors comes forth with helpful details about the car that hit you.

    If it's any consolation (which I know it won't be), I've heard several cars on Touhy/Sheridan being hit this winter during the early hours of the morning. By the time I awakened enough to realize what happened, and went to a Touhy-facing window to capture any information, the vehicles had already driven off. Given that almost each incident has occurred between 2-4 am, I'm unsure what was at fault (intoxication, texting, limited tire traction)--but I've definitely heard more of these "accidents" during the past two months. Most of the damage I've seen is a mirror being knocked off or a dented rear bumper, but a few cars have clearly been sideswiped along the entire length of the vehicle.

    Definitely have mixed feelings about the new parking garage. It's *just* close enough to my home to be a blessing during summer months when I don't mind the multi-block walk home in the evening (and when finding street parking goes from "winter-snow/excruciating" to "free-beach-parking/non-existent"). But I'm not looking forward to the multi-block pre-sunrise workday walks to my car, alone, while carrying valuables. But "that's life in the city," I suppose.

  • Sarahdonis 20 year neighbor

    Nancy, I'm sorry this happened to you. In case you haven't considered this, if you will end up paying for the bumper repair, it seems like you might be able to deduct it from your taxes, as a business expense. Check with your accountant. (I'm not any kind of tax expert, but I'm also self employed ;)

    Gerndoodle loves "gobs of blood" for photo-ops on the street. Gerny-Gore is a specialty. Tidwell didn't agree and yanked Gerny's legs out from underneath him. Oops, nothing left but a bicycle and no driver's license. Double Oops.

Rabbit

My little sick rabbit was picked up this morning by Flint wildlife rescue. He looked like a healthy young rabbit except for one eye that still looks a bit infected but all the swelling was gone in both eyes. Thanks to all the lovely comments and support thru this ordeal. I think he'll be o.k. now. ....heavy sigh..

Cabbages & Kings

Time has come to talk of many things. Gordon vowed to not lie about or attack any of his opponents... did he stick to his promise? Did Don file all of his in-kind donations appropriately? Did he know that using space at restaurants for events and experienced individuals for training are in-kind donations that should be reported responsibly? It's time to account and be honest. We are listening for a reply. Will you keep your pledge to support a Rogers Park Chamber of Comics? We need more fun.

Good-bye, MorWay

All but one business in the strip mall at Morse and Wayne has closed shop for good. Word on the street is Jennifer Pritzker bought it. The lone holdout is Vic's Pharmacy, who has allegedly gone to court - and was granted to stay until May 2015.

One can only speculate as to how big of a parking garage will be built in it's place?

One can also speculate as to how long it will be before Ms. Pritzker buy's out JB's Pizza?

    We should have a memorial service for all the souls killed or injured on the site.

    Craig could do a memorial photo album of all the gobs of blood on the street. He's good at that and could use his Photoshop skills to enhance the gobs and make them look even better.

Slick move by Pritzker and Moore on Rogers Park Plaza

I knew it was coming any day. The plans were there but the rich and powerful were waiting until the election was over. That's how the 1% and the politicians they have in their pocket work.

No community meeting? Are any zoning variances needed?

Five Stages of Loss and Grief

It would seem that one of our Rogers Park neighbors is dealing with the first of the typical five stages of loss and grief. It is well accepted that these five stages are:

1. Denial
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

It is quite normal to be locked into denial for a while and I suppose this accounts for some recent posts. Let us see how long it takes to get to acceptance!
