Outstanding potholes

Anyone know of any particularly bad potholes left after the winter? If so, please specify which block or closest intersection and a brief description.

Also, is there any road that is considered especially pothole ridden to the point that you try to avoid it?

Chuy says "he knows violence"in new debate

He should, his son is a self admitted gang member!

  • Bger East Village neighbor

    Robrob
    I know you are referring to Mikeg but the way it's written sounds like I'm your neighbor which I am not. Look I have a really horrible neighbor which I wish would go away. But I'd never say or write that publically. I know I just did but no one knows who I am referring to.

  • Yes I was referring to mikeg, and you are right to assume my statement was a hypothetical.
    Obviously I don't care about telling him to move in a public forum.

Scooter Shop?

Looking to buy a scooter! Where should I go? I would like to see a variety (stella, honda,yamaha, sym). Is that possible or do I have to go to specific dealers for each brand? I know one shop I went to years ago had a bunch of Stellas and Buddies but that was it (on the NW side). Also not looking to scammed or anything. This will be my first scooter purchase so I would love to buy from helpful/nice people!!

  • belkis muldoon homeowner on 1500 block of Jackson Blvd

    Motorworks on Western is a great shop. Been around for a while. No scamming.

  • Curtis Kuhn Edgewater born and raised
