Artsy Pub Crawl?

I'm looking to put together a pub crawl with an art theme, and I'm specifically looking for restaurants/bars that have local art for sale on the walls. We will be starting in Logan Square but will go anywhere in the city from there. I know Dunlays, Rocking Horse, and the Green Eye typically have art for sale, anyone know of some other good stops?

  • my art is up at Birchwood Kitchen on North. A bit out of this neighborhood, but great food. only open until 9 on weekdays, 4 on weekends.

  • gavondale near Belmont/Kedzie, cyclist, photographer

    Chicago Diner on Milwaukee has stuff up.

Mayoral Runoff

Gov. Rauner says he will not be making an endorsement. W. Wilson says on election day he will be meeting with Garcia and expects to endorse him. Gov. Rauner meets with Wilson and asks him to endorse Rahm. Wilson says he is not sure who he will endorse. Hmmmm....what could be afoot?

  • Sighryn Roscoe resident

    Ain't nobody care about who Wilson endorses. I just could not take him seriously.

  • Marcelino Gerena New 31st Ward Resident

    Hey Sighryn....I just saw Rahm on Chicago Tonight and he seems to care. His 10% forced Rahm into a runoff. That was Wison's goal. Now he can reap the benefits of his $1 mil investment. Follow the money and you will find Rahm.

    The point is: do you want an autocratic alderman unilaterally making decisions as to which businesses can or cannot open?

    Walmart is horrible to employees, but then so is Target and nobody's complaining about that. If he really wants to effect change, he'd pass a city-wide ordinance against anti-gay employment...

    The point is: do you want an autocratic alderman unilaterally making decisions as to which businesses can or cannot open?

    Walmart is horrible to employees, but then so is Target and nobody's complaining about that. If he really wants to effect change, he'd pass a city-wide ordinance against anti-gay employment practices, or raising the minimum wage to $15 instead of making people wait until 2019 for a meager $13. That's the way to do it, not ad hoc obstruction of individual businesses. If it's not OK in Ward 1, it's not OK anywhere in the city.

    Moreno is all about hype. He finds a cause, hypes it to death, takes credit, and cashes in.

    BTW, he helped open the pawn shops nobody wanted (except his donors) so if you'd like to talk about the effect that has on crime, let's go.

  • Loganparkcat...don't say I disagree about blocking the Walmart. Was just pointing that for the person who brought up Walmart. You won't find me in a Walmart or Dollar Stores, both of which seem to line their shelves with poor-produced products from China.

3100 Block of Belden and Lyndale

Hello -
I am interested in connecting with neighbors in this area to become more cooperative. It's been really difficult the last 3 years to drive down the alley, because people don't clean their area and many that do, place all of the snow in the middle of the alley. Would love to form an understanding so our entire alley is clean, like other cooperative blocks. Would also like to connect for more block parties and community-based partnerships.

Car broken into while parked on Palmer Blvd

My car was broken into sometime between today and Wednesday night. No windows were broken so either it was jimmied or the door was unlocked. Everything from all the compartments was turned out onto the floor. Two CD cases of CDs were taken, all my change (about $3.00 in pennies) and car phone charger and ipod adapter. No huge losses. I expect it was someone walking down the street trying door handles. Perhaps the fact that the snow wasn't cleared off my car for a day made it look like I was away? It was parked right in front of my apartment, on Palmer Blvd near Sacramento.

  • Thanks Jeff, I don't think it could be avoided, though now I'll look for a person with a staff!

    I think the take away is to not leave things in my car. I remember now I had a plastic bag of trash and recycling on the passenger seat. Even if I know it's not worth anything, I need to make sure my car looks boring to someone who looks in.

    I has someone break three of my windows to get 75 cents and a screwdriver - sometimes they'll break into your car for the barest possibility of a chance there's something worth money there.

Election

What does it say about a mayor who spends millions against a field of candidates who have never run for Mayor and he gets 1000 less votes than his 1st election and almost set a record for lowest turnout ever. Maybe if there was a candidate named Apathetic he/she would have won.

    Well, it appears that the B of E found enough votes for 33rd ward alderman to avoid a runoff. 2 to be exact. Keep that in mind you 2 voters who live in the 33rd and did not vote early or often and wanted a different alderman. The addage "each vote counts" holds true in this election.

    Meegan and Mell both have enough $$ to file for a recount, which has to be done by Tuesday (per Aldertrack). And as long as the ballot is postmarked by Feb 23, any absentee ballots arriving at the Board of Elections by March 10 count as valid votes (over 500 absentee ballots were requested, leaving just over 200 either not in or unmailed) - plus there's 60 provisional ballots that have to be verified and if those check out, those will add to the total. With a race this close, I'm sure each vote is going to be hand counted and scrutinized - regular, absentee, and provisional.

    This race is still a long way from over.

The individual can stay in my apartment if need be.

Please call my cell phone: 312-852-8669

Violent Parking lot scam in Logan square. Elston and Logan blvd.

This afternoon I was approached by two men in their late 20s that seemed a bit sketchy in a black dodge minivan that said they wanted to fix a dent that was in my car. I was in my car and they were in theirs. I said no thank you and they persisted to hound me saying they would and could do it right now, on the spot if I just gave them 20 dollars. At this point they were harassing me and seemed mad that I wouldnt pay 20$ to have a dent fixed. They were both very persistent and aggressive in nature. I decided to take a photo of them after they pulled away to give details on the plate to 311. At this point they reversed and rammed their car into mine hard and got out of their car. I honked and made a scene and they got back into the car and drove off. I feel like they were probably trying to rob me or steal my car. I went to the police station and they couldn't do anything since there was minimal damage to my car and I wasn't hurt, physically. The license plate was an expired temporary plate registered to a woman from the suburbs. I just want people to be aware of these guys. They seemed hard up,irrational and violent. It seemed like they had this scam down and it wasn't their first attempt. I'm glad people were around and it didn't escalate into anything worse. It was definitely a scary situation.

  • I understand not chasing the thief but the security guard could have at least assisted the lady -- see if she was hurt, take her inside, help her call the real police -- they should be trained to not just stand there and look puzzled.

The beat meeting for 1411/1412, which had been postponed due to snow, has been rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7pm. Beat meetings are held at St. Nicolai Church, 3000 N. Kedzie Ave.

In addition to the usual information about crime statistics, police alerts, significant arrests and neighborhood occurrences, this meeting will also feature a information on bicycle theft prevention.
With Spring approaching (allegedly), people will be using their bikes more often. With more bikes out, the number of bicycle thefts increases in spring/summer. Get some tips from CPD members who are also cyclists on protecting your bike from theft.

After reading a previous post that she lives in the 1st ward AND worked for that Alderman recently- I finally determined that she screwed up her paperwork and meant to file to run in the 1st ward !

As everyone knows- vital services & representation are sorely lacking in the 1st ward.
I welcome her efforts to replace Joe Moreno and finally clean up the garbage and filth around her community.

What is it about the intersection of Kimball and Barry

that makes people think that traffic laws, common sense, and human decency no longer apply?

For the third time this winter a driver almost ran me over while I was crossing in the crosswalk. I don't care if there is snow on the ground and you're driving 5 MPH, I don't care if it's saturday night and you're drunk, if a pedestrian is IN the crosswalk already, you better stop at the stop sign, and stay stopped, until that pedestrian is into the other half of the crosswalk.

Sorry if anyone heard me yelling at the driver tonight and was disturbed. Next time I'm going to use my keys to scratch the hood.

  • A sure fire way to get people to slow down is to strip out a couple of inches of asphalt like they do for resurfacing. Or maybe some well placed potholes. People always slow down for those.

  • I was at Central at the red lite crossing over Milwaukee and a Police car going in the opposite direction stopped his car and told the car in front to move back over the crosswalk for the pedestrians to cross safely. Soo dangerous there where most car drivers always stop over the crosswalk. When I would live there for many years, I would always yell at them. What good was that. Chicago is like Miami and other cities. Rules of the Road, WHAT IS THAT? Welcome to Chicago.

Given what I know of the candidates, I would expect a close race, but Ward 35 is not on any "races to watch" stories in the news, so maybe it's not as close as I would think. I'll be the first to admit I haven't researched or prepared for this election as well as I should and normally do. I know that's not very civic-minded, but it is what it is.
