New Grocery Gal Post: Northwest Side Chicago Landmark: Hagen’s Fish Market

This is a long overdue installment on Hagen's Fish Market on Montrose. I'm pretty sure Portage Park and Jefferson Park fight over who's realm it falls under (I think Portage Park wins because it's on the south side of Montrose), so I kept it simple and said its location was on the Northwest Side. Enjoy!

  • Grocery Gal GroceryGalBlog Portage Park food lover

    @chi girl, please let me know how it is!

  • It was pretty good. The part that I ate cold was better than the part that I warmed up. (That was my own fault though as I reheated it too long and dried it out a little.) It tasted smokey but not overwhelmingly so and it didn't really need any additional seasoning. I wonder if they would do a garlic pepper on it like they have on their salmon. That might be good.

    I think I'll try a boneless turkey breast next.

Baltika

Thanks for remembering the store. Sadly, I closed it in 2008 and did not reopen. I am grateful that people still remember Baltika and really miss all my customers.

  • That was the best shop ever in JP.

    I loved that store too, my friend Jennifer LaCivita Kimbrough turned me on to it. I think our kids took pottery classes at Mud Puppy Studio right by there.

Selling Santa

I did not want to be accused of being unamerican today, Black Friday, so I went to the jammed pack mall to buy something.

I did not want to be accused of being unamerican today, Black Friday, so I went to the jammed pack mall to buy something. The lines were long in most stores and the parking lot was filling up, but as I got to the center of the mall and saw Santa, I noticed there was no line or any kid talking to him. Santa was just sitting there chatting with the Help (see pic). As I was taking the picture of this unimaginable situation a mother and her small son walked up to entrance. She was holding his hand and the kid was kinda pulling her anxious to see Santa, but as they got to the entrance a lady popped out with a clipboard and cut them off. I saw them talking for a minute and then the mother and kid just turned around and walked away. As it turns out, you got to pay to talk to Santa, nowadays. You got to buy a picture and pick out which size you want or no talk with Santa. Ye$, American, Ti$ the $ea$on.

Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) Coalition: Meet the Chicago Mayoral Candidates Live and In Person

Greetings Neighbors! The FAiR Coalition invites you to meet the Chicago Mayoral Candidates on Wednesday, Dec 3. The meeting is open to FAiR members and those interested in finding solutions to the massive increase in planes, noise and pollution at O'Hare and Midway. Remember the changes at both airports were done without any real community input.

The next FAiR general meeting is on Wednesday, 12/3 from 7-9pm at the VFW Hall at 10 W. Higgins in Park Ridge. Please RSVP/let us know if you are coming to info@fairchicago.org or via the FAiR Website www.fairchicago.org using the "Contact Us" link.

As part of the meeting, you will have a chance to meet in person, hear from and ask questions of several of the Chicago Mayoral candidates. Confirmed to be there so far are Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and Alderman Bob Fioretti. All Mayoral candidates including Mayor Emanuel have been invited. This will be the 11th request sent to Mayor Emanuel to meet with FAiR. He has ignored, dismissed and not responded to the previous 10 requests.

For all FAiR members whether you live in Chicago or you live outside of Chicago, it is no overstatement to say that this next FAiR meeting is the single most important gathering we have had and one that you must attend. Why?

Simply, the solutions FAiR seeks fly right through the Mayor's office. The Chicago Mayor owns and controls the airports serving the entire region, O'Hare and Midway, and the Mayor is the last and only missing piece at the table FAiR has created. With the right Mayor or the current Mayor doing the right thing, the success we seek is well within our reach. You can see why it is critical you attend.

One final item, FAiR does not endorse candidates for elected office. We present candidates to the membership to decide who is most closely aligned with solutions to the massive increase in planes, noise and pollution we are all experiencing.

President Obama will speak Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 25, at the Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Ave. A limited number of tickets for the public will be distributed at 10 am in the lobby of the Copernicus Center on Sunday, Nov. 23.
The White House released the following: On Tuesday, November 25, the President will travel to the Copernicus Community Center in Chicago, Illinois to meet with community leaders and discuss the executive actions he is taking to fix our broken immigration system.
As the President said on Thursday, his Immigration Accountability Executive actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules. They will also continue our commitment as Americans to an ideal-- that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.
The President looks forward to speaking to a diverse group of leaders on Tuesday, and to continuing to discuss his actions with communities and Americans across the country. Watch for updates at www.nadignewspapers.com

    Putin is part of a powerful group of Russians who want to take the country back to its days of communism. If you paid attention to the recent G20 summit in Brisbane, he had his warships near Australia in international waters as a show of strength. When he was pressured over the action he took in Crimea by Australia, Canada and America, he took his warships and went home early. Can't blame that one on Obama.

    http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/11/15/putin-leaves-g20-after-harper-and-other-leaders-press-him-on-actions-in-ukraine/

    The average wage for Americans has nothing to do with the president. He's a proponent for a higher minimum wage (http://www.whitehouse.gov/raise-the-wage), but it's the Republicans and their business masters who are keeping that from happening. Businesses prefer to keep their profits intact and rising rather than treat workers equitably. The president has no control over that. None whatsoever. That is part of the "free market" that we're supposed to have in the US. Since everyone is a wage slave the moment they are old enough to work, they are at the mercy of what their employers, and the job market to an extent, pays. But because American corporations are pressing more work out of less people, they're not hiring like they used to. They figured they'd threaten employees with the loss of their jobs if they don't perform, full well knowing that it's harder for people to jump from one job to the next and make the same pay. The government can't do jack about this because it doesn't have any authority to do so under the Constitution. Yet corporations are free to put millions of dollars into campaign coffers to buy politicians and policies.

    I take it Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are your sources of choice since you left them out? So let's see here. Fox News hammers on the same points over and over and over again for hours without actually presenting all of the facts. They prefer to pander to their audience and feed viewers with one-sided opinions. Then they hire Barbie Dolls to host certain news shows so their male audience won't pay much attention to the mush that comes out of their mouth. Megyn Kelly, anyone? As for Rush, well. He's a misogynist and a drug addict to boot. His credibility was shot a long time ago.

    As far as his middle name goes, you're the one who's putting his entire name out there. No other president gets their full name listed out like people do with Obama. They think that they're linking him to a seekrit muslim past with his middle name of Hussein. Nice backpedal there.

    There are so many news sources on the Internet that provide factual information without an agenda or opinion. I could come up with links that demonstrate fact after fact and all straight reading. I only watch Fox News when I'm subjected to it by my otherwise intelligent parent who has fallen into the trap of having all of his fears fed by that joke of a news channel.

Polish craftware: anyone remember Baltika: 4754 N Milwaukee?

Baltika was a great Polish (E.European) craft/gift store located at 4754 N Milwaukee Ave., and they moved about 5-6 years ago. Anyone have an idea where they may have relocated or, are there any stores near that sell similar Polish (E.European) crafts / giftwares ? Pottery, jewelry, handmade or imported similar crafts? That store was great! Thanks for any info . . . thanks!

    Zoning isn't rocket science but it's not 7th grade math. Sorry, but planned development is, by design, an excuse to ignore local zoning requirements because planned developments typically have a comprehensive plan behind them. The price to pay for petitioning for a zoning change to planned development is greater public scrutiny of the project via legally mandated public hearings for both the zoning change to PD as well as a project review. The benefits of a planned development is greater freedom of design for the project, the drawback is heightened city and public scrutiny over that design.

I've been anxiously awaiting the Grand Opening of the new Habitat Re-Store since I heard about it several months ago. This weekend it FINALLY opened its doors, and I was all too anxious to get in and see what I could find.

First and foremost, if you've been visiting the Re-Store near/in Chinatown, you're in for a treat with this one. It's FAR more organized, and well lit. In fact, they even had the place heated up nice and toasty when we arrived.

The outdoor/ garden section leaves a bit to be desired, but they did have some Audubon bird feeders that are normally $45-$60 for $10. I picked one of those up. I also scored a cute little wrought iron plant stand for $5.

They have some incredibly decent furniture for affordable prices. I saw couches for $20 and some beautiful sitting chairs for about the same.

We are looking to remodel our kitchen, so we had a look at the cabinets and countertops. They were VERY fairly priced, as were their windows and doors.

We just happened upon a PERFECT fireplace grate, which we were in need of for only $4! This is a heavy duty cast iron grate, not some rinky dinky little thing. It was most definitely a steal!

We'll be going back again and again, I'm sure. The selection was fantastic, and included both new AND used items.

For those of you who aren't aware, the items are donated to the Re-Store by individuals and companies that are remodeling or demolishing homes or buildings, or if there is an overstock. I'm sure there are a variety of other circumstances as well. The proceeds made at the restores go toward helping build homes and other needs for community members. It's a great deal as well as a great cause!

  • Open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 6pm.

  • TomL Loves, bikes, dogs, Jeff Park and Chicago

    6040 N Pulaski...open Tues-Sun 10-6, and yes, it's got a bit of everything!
    Donations are tax-deductible and most welcome (same hours) and give call (773) 539-6040 if you need a pickup of large items.
    The ReStore welcomes volunteers to help run the store, clean appliances, schlep furniture, hang lighting items, mix paint, etc!
    Contact for that is heather@restorechicago.org...or just drop by! a fun place to volunteer and to "make a difference."

Analysis: dynamics of 45th Ward aldermanic race change with candidacy of Michael Diaz

Garrido, Baert, Diaz vying to unseat Arena in 45th Ward race. Who does the mayor support?
http://nadignewspapers.com/2014/11/18/4-candidate-field-roils-45th-ward-race/

  • Ryan Richter Transportation Planner in Jefferson Park

    Stewart went through some interesting acrobats to arrive at his conclusions. Nevertheless, I found it to be a thoughtful piece. I will second the comment that I'd love to see Nadig do a write-up on the candidates. This is a fantastic local story that our local paper should not ignore.

  • Troubled Child

    Probably won't see that Ryan for a few reasons. Brian and Glenn sit on all the chambers of commerce around here, sitting with both Garrido and Arena. Right there would be a conflict of interest. Second conflict of interest that could make a newspaper story less than neutral is local candidates spend big dollar amounts advertising in the Nadig Newspapers during the election cycle , so essentially political candidates are clients of the newspaper. Can't have fair journalism that way.

Many thanks for your timely response when a gas leak was feared this morning at the condo complex in the 5300 block of Windsor Ave. Your professionalism was superior and you located the source of the problem quickly, enabling residents to return inside and go about their day. Fortunately the odor throughout the complex wasn't a gas leak, but an aerosol can of sealant that ruptured in a mechanical room. We're very grateful to the Chicago Fire Department for being there when we needed assistance.

neighbors, without sparking to much debate I am curious your views on something. Lots of accusations by many about others having multiple names, then there are the opinions that are often strong and heated by folks who clearly want to remain hidden. These opinions as you know can be everything from neighborhood issues to business reviews. What's your thoughts on that issue? Should EB revamp and require neighbors to display who they are? Just general thoughts and I'm sincerely curious what you all think on the subject

I'm just about to write the annual Association memo to residents that say, 'Please shovel when it's your turn or pay $20,' but no one does, and the three or four who still can end up shoveling all winter, and one of them gripes so much about it that it's pitiful (not me).

If you have a pumpkin that hasn't been chemically treated and you'd like to get rid of it, please let me know! I'd be happy to take a few off your hands! I roast them, puree them, and add fresh cinnamon (antibacterial and antifungal) and fresh garlic (ant parasitic and antifungal). I keep them in little baggies over the winter and serve them up nice and warm for the girls on those super chilly days. They gobble them right up!

If anyone is interested in donating your old pumpkin after Halloween, just let me know!

Thanks!
