Dr. Olivia Forys

I got a letter saying that my GP, Dr. Olivia Forys, is leaving her practice with Rush. I'd really like to keep her as my doctor, but the letter didn't say where she is going (if anywhere in Chicago). If anyone has information, it would be much appreciated. I certainly hope she's doing OK.

    Her contract probably prevents her from sharing this information. I would wait a couple of months, then check HealthGrades for updated office informaion

  • Thanks, Robin!

Looking for a Veterinary Clinic

Good Morning,
I am a new pet parent of a cat. Just starting to looking around for vets. The closest to me is "Higgins Animal Clinic" I was wondering what do you think? Thank you so much for your help!

    I came home to find my kitty unresponsive and barely breathing. I put her in my arms and rushed to the first place I could think of, giving CPR over her mouth at stop lights, and drove to Cat Hospital on Irving Park. They took her in immediately, were compassionate and excellent emergency care. She was almost 19 years old and she has been with us ever since we picked her up at an apple farm in Michigan. I was able to contact my son in Australia so he could say his goodbyes and nurses were supportive during the transition time that followed as our wonderful cat passed on. I had taken her there only one other time many years ago but they treated her with kindness and quick response. My regular vet is a traveling vet and comes to the house and always spent a good hour when we had her check-ups, shots, or anything else. He rents space if surgery is needed. That's why I needed to go somewhere immediately and Cat Hospital was there for us. Our kitty gave us so much joy and fun times. We miss her so.

Experiences with apartment searching in early spring/late winter?

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

We know that the October 1st lease starting time is one of the busiest and most fast paced rental seasons, but we may not be able to invest the time in August and September that is needed to snap up a nice apartment so we are seriously considering the April start date alternative.

So I am asking if any of you have any experience with the April start date rental market. Do there tend to be a decent amount of properties available in a variety of neighborhoods? Do the prices fluctuate at all? Is it silly to think that the market at that time won't be as ideal?

Any and all information or anecdotes you could send our way would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

  • Tom Zullo Lakeview Resident 16 years and counting!

    I am a landlord and being a native for many years in Chicago, I see May as the biggest month for rental opportunities and through the summer. People typically move here after graduation and or with a young family with the intention in being settled before fall hits. That said, rental agreements cycle or renew (or not) May through Summer months.

  • Thank you all for the information. It really helps a lot!

Wine classes?

I am looking for a local beginner wine class in the Roscoe Village area. Any suggestions?

    Hi. I'm a Certified Sommelier whose mentors were both David Klein and Alpana Singh. Before I undertook my studies, Alpana directed me to The Court of Master Sommeliers (www.mastersommeliers.org), who offer a syllabus of recommended literature and three levels of testing, if that interests you.

Before I undertook my studies, Alpana directed me to The Court of Master Sommeliers (www.mastersommeliers.org), who offer a syllabus of recommended literature and three levels of testing, if that interests you. If you're looking for something more fun and casual, I can always help. If you want to study wine a bit and have fun doing it, check my website out to see if it appeals to you (www.thegrapesimple.com). That way, you can invite friends over, enjoy a few beverages, and get some instruction while doing it. Otherwise, The Chopping Block is good. Good luck, and have fun!

    The car is still there. I'll get this re-opened. The car has not moved since two street cleanings ago. It still has a parking ticket from the most recent street cleaning.

I missed the other crawfish boils that I wanted to go to, and this will probably be the last of the season.

If your not already familiar with Newport (on Newport & Southport in Southport Corridor ), they already have a Cajun-influenced menu, so I trust 'em when it comes to the real deal!

Tickets are only $25 and includes all-you-can-eat crawfish, red potatoes, corn on the cob, red beans & rice and crispy potato salad, with $4 Abita beers.

They have a great patio and it'll definitely be a good time!

Homemade Pizza Company closed all locations

RIP #HomemadePizzaCo. Looks like all locations are closed, and their Facebook and Twitter are deleted. This is an L3 building so we'll see what happens next.

http://southportcorridorchicago.blogspot.com/2014/05/rip-homemade-pizza-company.html

  • Matt 10-year Lakeview resident

    They must have left some food behind because the Southport storefront is now littered with dead flies...such an eyesore, creeps me out each time I walk past it on my commute. Shocked that the chain closed, they must have overexpanded--this location had a line of customers every evening.

  • Personally, I never understood the business model. I bought pizzas from them twice and stopped after I realized I could get a pizza made, and delivered to me for the same price as this place. Did I mention that the delivered pizza was already made? I didn't have to cook it myself.

    I found them to be overpriced for what they were offering.
