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?

  • Susan Long-time Jeff Park resident

    One of the best dates my husband and I had (if you can get away overnight) was at the Fireside dinner theater in Ft. Atkinson, WI. It is about 2-1/2 hours away. They have a gourmet dinner, a little shopping, and then some of the best theater I've seen outside of downtown Chicago. Then you stay overnight (Johnson Creek is a good place). The hotel right by the property was NOT recommended the last time I went. I really like some of the suggestions above, too--they show great imagination!

  • There's always a night out bowling as well. If you feel neither of you is very good, that just adds to the fun, You're sure to have lots of laughs.

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 :(

  • Big Oaks Big Oaks resident since 1979

    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.

Preschool Recommendation

I'm interested in sending my soon to be 3 year old daughter to preschool. She currently attends in-home daycare, but she needs more of a school setting. Any suggestions?

  • Thanks to all for the great recommendations!

    Both of my boys went to White Steeple in Norwood Park and it was a wonderful, caring experience. Thumbs way up!

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.

No. 2: Big Top Restaurant, 6348 W. Higgins Ave.

  • Klelo Teacher

    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.
