  • Wicked Fast BMW Average Chicagoan who loves her city

    I wish we could participate but alas we are in the 39th ward and we don't have anything like this. We have an alderman who doesn't really care to interact with us and of course if far too important to be on any social media site where her voters might actually hear something from her and be able to give input. Would it be easier to elect another alderman or to get redistricted into the 45th?

    I'm pretty sure you too can nominate things at the survey monkey website. Of course you're voting on 45th Ward stuff but still.

Christmas is over!

Seriously people-- please take down your holiday decorations! Deflated Santas... sagging snowmen... plastic candy canes... and OH the lights! There's even a house in my neighborhood with a Halloween banner still up.

Don't put it up unless you plan on taking it down in a timely manner. Do you need my help? You might get it--want it or not. 4700 blocks of Berenice and Grace-- I'm especially talking about YOU!

  • My elderly aunt left her tree up year-round because she made the ornaments for it by hand and it made her happy. Now that she's gone, it's something that makes me chuckle in amusement when I think about her. It was her only eccentricity.

    Unless there's an HOA rule that's being broken, I think you're probably stuck with seeing the Christmas decorations until next Christmas.

  • That's a cute story, Nick-G. I suppose we all have our eccentricities to a certain degree. I imagine I would leave my Halloween decorations up year-round inside my home if I thought I could get away with doing so.

    Leaving decorations outside after a reasonable period is just being lazy.

    Six Corners Sam, perhaps an anonymous letter or flier can be sent to the offending parties announcing the change of seasons and the end of certain holiday times.

New Restaurant at Six Corners

Went to this new restaurant at Six Corners (on Cicero south of Irving Park) this morning and the breakfast was delicious and prices very reasonable. They're open everyday, 7am-3pm.

    Some of us had an impromptu lunch gathering there a few weeks ago. We all enjoyed our food and the great service by the owner and his son. Hope everyone gives it a try.

Got a Basement to rent?

Looking to rent a Basement or basement apartment that is absolutely clean and dry and ideally with high ceilings and that is absolutely private and secure. I am a realtor with a home staging business on the side, dedicated to helping my seller clients, and I need an affordable space to store my inventory ( some furniture and home accessories and artwork) I would ideally be able to hang artwork on walls. I'd be a great tenant.

  • Jen Baron JBaron

    Aidan33- I am just looking for storage as my original post says, I have a home staging business and I need to store my staging inventory only. Ideal is a secure, private basement. $600 sounds reasonable, but I'm looking for something more affordable . Thanks for your post.

Real Estate

I see an area for reviews but where would a REALTOR post an Ad to let people know

Water

I live in Old Irving Park in the area in back of Sabatino's. I discovered this morning that I do not have any water. Does anyone know what has happened, why or when our water will be turned back on??

  • KTD

    Milwaukee Ave. construction required the water main to be shut down today (tuesday, april 8th) from 8:30am to 3:30pm. We received a bright orange sign on our front door last week announcing the water shut-off.

  • There were no notifications of shut-off received by anyone in my townhouse development. The water is back on now. Thank you for your response.

Spark Energy going door-to-door in Old Irving Park

I just had a conversation with someone from Spark Energy who asked to see my electricity bill to get my account number. After thinking it over, I sent her away without giving her my information.

I'm not exactly sure what Spark is trying to do or what service they are offering, but their approach was way too aggressive and unsettling for my taste. Has anyone else dealt with Spark? Are they legit?

I'll be doing my own research this week, but I'm curious to hear what my neighbors are experiencing.

  • TLo

    This is one of those topics that comes up every other week....there has to be a way to link back to the previous thread (tho I just tried and couldn't get it to work).
