Date Night

So rather than doing the same old "dinner and a movie" routine, I want to think outside the box for our future date nights. I figured our Everyblock community would be an awesome idea generator. So neighbors what good options for live music, comedy shows, other entertainment do we have here on the NW side? I am thinking we'll check out a performance at the Gift Theater and visit the new Sip and Paint. What else?

  • Susan Long-time Jeff Park resident

    One of the best dates my husband and I had (if you can get away overnight) was at the Fireside dinner theater in Ft. Atkinson, WI. It is about 2-1/2 hours away. They have a gourmet dinner, a little shopping, and then some of the best theater I've seen outside of downtown Chicago. Then you stay overnight (Johnson Creek is a good place). The hotel right by the property was NOT recommended the last time I went. I really like some of the suggestions above, too--they show great imagination!

  • There's always a night out bowling as well. If you feel neither of you is very good, that just adds to the fun, You're sure to have lots of laughs.

Milwaukee Avenue Protected Bike Lane Plan Dead, Alderman Says

"It is not over yet," Garrido said, adding that he favors maintaining two lanes of travel in each direction along Milwaukee while expanding the white buffered bike-lane pavement markings between Lawrence and Elston by reducing the center turn lane.

Palmer School

We just settled an offer on a house in North Mayfair that is only a few blocks from Palmer School.We are considering keeping out kids at their current school, or changing their school to Palmer. I'm curious about how the community feels about their school. If you could share your thoughts and opinions, I would so appreciate it! Thank you.

Taste of Polonia Questions

Does anyone know if there will be a separate entrance fee for the kids activities? I think there was one last year? If yes, any idea of the amount? Can't find any info on the event's website :(

  • Big Oaks Big Oaks resident since 1979

    I'm not going but I checked out 2 websites. The sandwich making contest is free as is the clown, puppet, bounce house, etc, etc. You pay $7 for people 13 and up and that's it. Of course you pay for food and the casino and bingo type games. And all the stage shows for adults and kids are free. At least that's the way I read it.

Pot holes and streets situation

What do we have to do so Wilson st between Kilbourn and Kenton is fixed? I noticed the city did a mediocre job and covered the pot holes. On Kenneth and Wilson, we also have a big pot hole and they just put a metalic plate to cover it up. The streets in the neighborhood have been a mess since winter. I understand it was a rough winter, but its almost August already and this should have been addressed by now. Where is our Alderman???

  • On the Mayfair Library corner there is a new surface and crosswalk across Lawrence Ave., no potholes (not even those spike holes from the quickly demolished flapover pedestrian crossing signs), and new curb & gutter. The library is right next door to the offices of State Senator D'Amico, Alderman Laurino, Democratic Ward Committeeman Barnett. No actual pothole(s) prior to the resurfacing.

  • I think the stretch on Wilson Nathalia is referring to is actually Kilborn to Kenneth (the K-streets can be confusing!). That stretch of Wilson is a MESS! The patches the city put on those potholes are pathetic, like putting band-aids on gunshot wounds. That street needs to be completely repaved...

    I think the stretch on Wilson Nathalia is referring to is actually Kilborn to Kenneth (the K-streets can be confusing!). That stretch of Wilson is a MESS! The patches the city put on those potholes are pathetic, like putting band-aids on gunshot wounds. That street needs to be completely repaved before the first snowfall. The first snow plow that hits it will tear it up so badly that it will be completely unusable.

    A related sidenote, I too would like more visibility of Alderman Laurino on Everyblock. I follow the surrounding areas closely on EB and I respect how active Alderman Arena is. It's clear that his ward is improving and I think his efforts play a huge part. Mayfair is a great neighborhood but it can be greatly improved. Whatever it is she's doing to improve it, I don't know. I hope she's as active as her counterparts and if she is, she should chime in more often to keep us informed and engaged.

    We checked the scales last time & the one vendor had a marked weight handy for anyone to confirm readings. They did note they'd found a problem with there scale a month ago, as it had gotten banged around in transit. They've since fixed it and are making every effort to alleviate concerns.
