Suggestions for pizza delivery

We're looking to order pizza for 20 people next Wednesday without busting through our budget. Any suggestions for delivery to the Pulaski/Peterson area?

  • ReStore Chicago ReStore helps raise money for Habitat for Humanity

    Thanks for the great suggestions everyone, truly appreciated.

    I think that given that we are a non-profit and I have no budget for feeding hungry volunteers I would say that anything short of an in-kind donation would bust through my budget. That said, I was able to get a monetary for the donation so as long as its under $40 I'll be set.

  • ReStore Chicago ReStore helps raise money for Habitat for Humanity

    We ended up going with Sergio's because of price considerations. My co-workers and I will be rotating the other suggestions for the next couple of weeks so we can find our local favorite. Thanks again for the suggestions everyone.

Bravo to Robert Murphy for getting 43% of the 39th ward!

Although he didn't win, this was a great showing and an indictment of "Marge".

    There's nowhere to live within 50 miles of O'Hara or Midway or any major International Airport in the world and not have jet noise. people may not like the noise, but believe me when I say you'll get use to it. The noise hasn't even affected the value of our property. I suggest to anyone not liking the jet noise, to move to the wilderness of the Dakota's, or New England.

Our Very Own Tunnel?

Alderman Laurino "join[ed] Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Congressman Mike Quigley, and officials from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MRWD) to announce" that a storm water tunnel will be built in Albany Park. It is to begin in Eugene Park, go under Foster Ave, and 2 years and $45-55M later. empty into North Branch. She "will be engaging the Albany Park community through a series of community meetings and public forums." (per 2/17/15 email)

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    It's "Eugene Field Park" - Eugene Field was the name of the author of several poems and he lived in Chicago. Calling it "Eugene Park" is wrong.

Love this.

So happy to be able to communicate instanteanously with so many neighbors on so many platforms - EveryBlock, Twitter, Facebook, NextDoor.

Please know that I am listening to all of you, including those who disagree. I value all your opinions.

There has been lots of things happening lately in the 39th ward race, including that I received the Tribune's endorsement and a poll administrator at the N. Park Village Admin building who works for Ald. Laurino was removed.

I'm happy to answer any questions you all have about these or other issues. Please feel free to reach out on social media, on my website, or by phone 773.710.8431.

End This Nonsense: Time to Vote Laurino Out of Office on February 24

It is time for us to end the nonsense of one family multi-generational public payroll patronage in the 39th Ward. So, on election day February 24 (or better yet sooner in person at North Park Village) vote LauriNO out of office. LauriNO's days are numbered so let's do this now and move on to a better future. Silence on your part or not voting is choosing to support what we have had to live under for 5 decades.

It is time for us to end the nonsense of one family multi-generational public payroll patronage in the 39th Ward. So, on election day February 24 (or better yet sooner in person at North Park Village) vote LauriNO out of office. LauriNO's days are numbered so let's do this now and move on to a better future. Silence on your part or not voting is choosing to support what we have had to live under for 5 decades.

Time to end 50 years of one family rule now or we might get even more as family offspring and relatives are lurking everywhere. Rumors of family member State Rep D'Amico being put into the Alderman's spot only make this a nightmare that will not end. Vote Laurino out now and the dominoes fall from there...can nobody else do the job? Apparently only LauriNO/D'Amico DNA can handle the stress of it all...many government jobs in that family, many taxpayer pensions, several investigations, two felony convictions (D'Amico) and one indictment (LauriNO).

Enough. Stop being apologist for this nonsense. We deserve better. We can do better. We need better.

    Bob K,

    Thanks for posting that. I'm glad that Laurino to trying to make Albany Park those areas better. Flooding is definitely an issue in our area as well. We had to install a french drain system to deal with the ground water.

    Will this system address that? Or just sewer overruns?

  • Thanks Bob, saw that too, SHES THE WORST :P

    This should help a lot of people when this is done.

Take the Improvement Survey sent out by CDOT

Thought I would share with you.....

"The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has launched a month-long, city-wide text and online survey to seek input from Chicago residents about what you appreciate about our streets and sidewalks and what improvements you would like to see. The survey is designed to help CDOT create guidelines for future improvements in the public right of way."
