Twisted Tapas Still Going Strong!

I started going to twisted Tapas a year ago February and cannot tell you how many times my husband and friends and I have been there since but I went again just last night! Food is still as excellent as it was a year ago and the staff is just as friendly and fun! It is SO great to see this place continue to do so well. If you haven't been there in a while make sure to get out into what is sure to be the last of winter and have a nice dinner! I think we are all getting cabin fever and tired of going out in the cold! Thanks Twisted!!

USPS

I've had terrible mail service lately. It seems that they don't come most days and much of our mail never arrives. Didn't get the January People's Gas bill.

Why is the Chicago Business Mafia calling Chuy "Inexperienced"?

Chicago Magazine just featured an interesting article that looks at some of the unfounded reasons behind Chicago business leaders calling Chuy's "inexperienced" even though he has a deep county, state and city government background. Something people forget is that Chuy is also currently the floor leader for Preckwinkle, and her office has arguably managed Cook County's debt problem more intelligently and effectively than Rahm has managed the city's. Since union relations will be key to addressing the debt crisis, Chuy would also be better positioned in that regard.

Appeal Process

Has anyone filed any forms to appeal the value of their condo? I have the 2015 real estate assessed valuation appeal form but I just came across another form on the cook county website listing a very long list of documents to submit, along with pics of your building. I'm trying to figure out what's actually needed to appeal.

  • That's my issue. I live in a 4 flat. We don't really have a traditional hoa and the paperwork needed to file an appeal for all 4 units is ridiculous so it makes us want to just file for our own. Much less paperwork to gather!

bulls win without rose, butler

The bulls playoff hopes seemed dim with news of rose' s newest injury. But the surgery went well and we expect him back in a few weeks. Then just as fans breathed a sigh of relief, butler suffers an injury and is sidelined. But the team worked hard last night and pulled out a victory anyway. I'm impressed with our depth and the players stepping up and making the most of an opportunity. Still, this has been a weird year for the bulls and the league overall: young guns, injuries aplenty and odd slumps.

How will the bulls fare down the stretch, as the season winds down and the playoffs begin?

A coworker thinks creepy deer head scarecrow I saw today on the beach might be voodoo. Anyone know what this means?

It had been an oral tradition, but when put in writing, it became VOODOU. Thus, Haitian VOODOU was mixed with Christianity, which had been unknown in West Africa, at the time.
    West African practitioners of VOODOO present animal sacrifice to spirit, in thanks(giving;). Typically, it is then buried. Unfortunately for those of us who inhabit the areas where sacrifice is safest to perform in our community, some eccentrics leave the carcasses, to 'show off' their kill.

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

Was I supposed to ask Kathy to talk to Heather Steans to ask her to talk to her person in Springfield to report that the CW called me finally but he was verbally abusive and the client was offended and demands an apology?? Was I supposed to write a letter to CW's supervisor, who I don't even know the name? THEY DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE LETTERS! Or faxes. Was I supposed to go down to the office in Skokie, take a number, wait all day to talk to an intake worker to complain about the verbally abusive CW? I was angry abt the way the CW spoke to me, but my real concern was to get the extension to get the app. in. I got that (going through my state senator). That was the issue. The issue was resolved. There's no point in trying to be a Prima Donna. I got what I needed. I let go of the rest. I contented myself with the knowledge that the CW is in his own private hell with that job and the certainty that my household income is probably twice his. I keep my priorities straight and I keep moving forward. Life is too short.

How come neither of the bleepers on the ballot thought to mention that?

  • People remember the anniversary of the 1837 incorporation every 50 years - that's often enough.A possibly more important anniversary for us is July 15. That's when, in 1889, 200,000 residents of areas surrounding Chicago (including Edgewater) became part of Chicago, quadrupling its geography and making it the "second city" (New York City was still bigger).

I previously had our family's prescriptions at Walgreen's, where it was frequently crowded and the pharmacists and techs often seem super busy. Ever since switching over, I've found that the pharmacists at Jewel really do have time to answer questions, look up your meds, etc. One time when I had asked to add flavoring to my son's medicine (which Walgreens had previously done), the pharmacist actually came and found me in the shopping aisles to ask a question and tell me about how the flavoring could effect the medicine if it wasn't stored properly, and that this medicine was already very sweet and might not really need flavoring. Wow, that was really great to know they were being so vigilant. Just wanted to pass it on and give some compliments to the Jewel pharmacists. :)

    Couldn't agree more about Osco pharmacy. I switched from Walgreens to Osco on Clark in Andersonville years ago. Have had all positive experiences - can't say the same for Walgreens whose worse mistake was miscounting pills and blaming me. Since Jewel/Osco changed ownership, however, other nonprescription items are sparse. CVS is great for this regarding selection and prices.

Rogers.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Below is a reprint of the earlier notice I posted describing the proposal and its history:

Funding for design improvements was approved by the voters in the 2011 Participatory Budgeting election, but the City delayed implementation of the plan until Peoples Gas finished with its gas main installation work in the area. The gas main work is now completed.

The plan proposed by the City of Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is illustrated in the photo below.

The plan extends the curb at the southwest corner of the intersection to reduce the angle between Touhy and Rogers and shortening the crosswalk at that location from 100 feet to 40 feet.

  • Doesn't sound like CDOT needs or wants community input. Is this just their presentation of what is planned for eventual work?

Hoping anyone could help me find a nice one bedroom ( or two if price is right) dog friendly apartment. My dog is ~60 lbs , 15yrs old sweet American Staffordshire Terrier. WELL BEHAVED - never barks , ( unless a stranger knocks at the door- barks once at the second knock and then stops) sleeps most of day and NEVER has accidents inside . I wrote all of this in case you may have a friend or know of someone who owns a bldg. My dog has great references in the bldg and in neighborhood . Living in a renovated condo in RP w/parking and storage (unfortunately require) . Would love a smaller building ( less than 20 units ) and either three flights of stairs or elevator . My dog can still run and jump tho sometimes navigating stairs can be precarious. Thanks for any help ! O and it doesn't have to be in RP - could be as far as 20 minute radius from RP .

    Hi Paige, we actually live in the side of the building that is privately owned but managed by TriCap Properties, this is the 1706-1708 building. I would give TriCap a call if you're interested in renting, they will be able to give you a better idea than Dwell,Inc what breeds are and aren't allowed. The last renters above us had a large boxer dog

  • JLR! Thank you so much for this suggestion.

    Ms. Pea, you should call there too then because I found out yesterday that the first application may not go through, so there may be 2 apts available at Farwell.
