Buyer Be Aware

I was at Thalia Spice on Green Street a few weeks ago. I got an appetizer on the menu (The Sea Sampler). It was listed on the menu at $13. When I got home I noticed it was listed on the receipt for $19. When I went back to tell management, they showed it listed in their computer at $15. They did give me my money back. It goes to remind me that I should always be looking over my receipt.

Jamba Juice at Madison and Wells CLOSED PERMANENTLY

Anyone know anything? I was just there on Thursday and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Seems pretty sudden. I work at that intersection and have been surviving off that place for years. What a bummer...

  • Brett Live downtown

    I have not seen anything online; however, there have been mass closures of Jamba Juice locations in Chicago over the past 6 months. These are the locations I could quickly locate online. The Loop is the most effected - all locations are now closed. The closure at 20 N Michigan by me was unannounced, as well.

What to do about loud drumming performers

I moved to a new place near Michigan and Randolph a couple months ago. Every day there is a drummer that comes and drums on buckets on the sidewalk or a full band with drum kit. It is impossible to concentrate or get any work done during the day.

The bucket drummer will play for about 30 minutes until a police officer shows up and tells him to move, although he never gets ticketed. So he leaves for about an...

I moved to a new place near Michigan and Randolph a couple months ago. Every day there is a drummer that comes and drums on buckets on the sidewalk or a full band with drum kit. It is impossible to concentrate or get any work done during the day.

The bucket drummer will play for about 30 minutes until a police officer shows up and tells him to move, although he never gets ticketed. So he leaves for about an hour and then comes right back to the same spot or across the street.

I'm seven floors up and about 250 feet away, so the sound is very loud. According to city ordinance, the sound shouldn't be heard more than 100 feet away.

I know I'm new to this neighborhood and this has probably been going on for decades, so just curious on others' thoughts on if there is anything I can/should do to stop them from playing (or at least playing so loudly)? Is it worth calling 311 or 911 or the alderman? Or should I just deal with it and move when my lease is up next year? Anyone else annoyed by the non-permitted street performers (or permitted ones with full bands playing super loud)?

  • Fair enough. Josh, if you've even read any of these responses, do as they suggest and let us know. We'll see :)

  • Thanks everyone for the thoughts and suggestions.
