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?

    There are plenty of "romantic" movies with no talking.

    @Frankie G: If you had taken your sweetheart to the romantic one they showed last week you would have been treated to one of the best on screen car races I have ever seen and she would still be looking at you with moony eyes.

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 :(

    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.

Shop & Save

Anybody know when it will finally open? Can't find an update anywhere.

  • Last I had heard was early August...and that didn't happen...are they decorating the inside like the Taj Mahal or what???!!!
    It's getting really annoying and remains seriously inconvenient to not have a nearby grocery store. Happy Foods on NW Hwy is the next closest for me but their breadth of selection is sometimes lacking. And Jewel at Oakton /Milwaukee never seems to be properly staffed.
    Shop and Save...your public awaits you!!!

  • Last week the parking lot was filled with semi-trucks. Not sure if that means they are stocking shelves now or just getting fixtures in place.

Talk to me about compost bins

How much maintenance does composting require? Do animals get into it?

I hesitate because my small kids keep me with time for little else. We also have a lot of raccoons, rats, mice in the area an am concerned about attracting them (even with a covered bin).

  • My bin has a tight fitting lid, and a plastic grid on the bottom. Rats cannot get in. I got it when the Dept of Environment was subsidizing them and delivering them on a special day at Garfield Park. There is a door at the bottom where you can remove finished compost. You do not put meat or bones or dairy in there.

  • Sss

    I started a bokashi system, but still am looking for something to put it in outside to finish the decomp process. Do you happen to know the brand of your bin?

  • No, I've had it for years ... got it from the city. You can use a plastic garbage bin with a tight fitting lid, if you drill holes in the bottom. If you look at the city's website, there may still be a subsidy/reimbursement for purchase of a compost bin.

    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.

    I have never been to NOK but will have to try! Agreed that Big Top is gross and would never waste my time or money. I also really love 4 Hermanos, great Mexican food at a reasonable price!

  • 4Hermanos has that 'looks can be deceiving' thing going on. Not the best from the outside, loved the interior, and the food is outstanding. Big Top I like for their breakfast, especially how they do bacon (crispy, thin, properly done, not flabby and fatty), and their gyros platter is pretty great, too.

    Watch for fingers on the scales!

  • evam eva s, jpna member

    Pls. don't let an unfortunate incident stop you from attending the Jefferson Park Sunday Market. It's wonderful just to have it in our neighborhood. If you feel you have to be extra careful, mention it to that vendor and, I am sure, he/she will be glad to make things right. Please come again.

  • Merril Jefferson Park Sunday Market manager

    And actually the vendor did discover a problem with the scale, fixed it & had a test weight handy today in an effort to cooporate and put people at ease.
