How Could They Get Dirty This Fast?

Wanted to have a Jimmy Johns for lunch today.

This location on Roosevelt, under the "L" tracks, has only been open about a year. But now they're shut due to vermin.

  • That's Jersey Mike's, not Jimmy John's. It might be respectful to JJ's to edit your original posting to reflect this.

  • Brian McCarthy Waiting for the Sequel to the Big Lebowski

    You're right it's Jersey Mikes. Can't seem to edit posts.

Cleaners

Anyone recommend a good and reasonable price cleaner in the West Loop?

  • lauren east lakeview

    Clean as a Whistle on Adams is great.

  • smith3 west loop

    After disappointing experiences at several other dry cleaners, I found, and am most happy with, Morgan Cleaners (949 W. Madison). Friendly service sure, however it's the winning combination of the quality of their work plus their attention to detail (special attention to spots/stains, mending, replacing of buttons, etc.).

Chicago Marathon

Does anyone know who actually organizes the Bank of America Chicago Marathon? For example, in Boston, the marathon is organized by the Boston Athletic Association. I am having a difficult time trying to find out who organizes Chicago. I have a friend who is very interested in perhaps starting a career in race management. Thanks much.

  • Chicago Event Management is the organizer - cemevent.com - they also plan the Shamrock Shuffle amongst other things (the World Cup Soccer viewing parties, etc.)

  • mikedezz in Printers Row retired educator

    You can also get information from the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA).

Looking for a unique/ unconventional event space...

Hi all-

We're looking for an event space; around 4000 square feet for around 150 people. We've searched quite a bit, but haven't found the ideal space just quite yet. It's for a wedding, and we're trying to avoid the "standard" wedding venues (I know that's terribly vague). Anyways, if anyone knows of a venue or a resource to look at, it would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Kevin

  • Please post back the final decision!

  • I was just reminded of the wedding that we attended at the Chicago Historical Society. It was very interesting. I also saw that there was a function at the Mariano's on Halsted and Monroe. Unusual but beautiful setting for a smaller gathering like a rehearsal dinner. I love weddings. As Gary requested...please let us know your choice(s). Good luck.

Mover Recs

Does anyone have anything they'd like to say about a recent mover experience that would help me choose (or not choose) a moving company? Thanks!

  • MandaLeigh Here I Is.

    I highly recommend The Professionals. We have a good number of antiques (including a gazillion lb. Victrola) and everything made it with not even a scratch. They were very careful and extremely courteous and hard-working. Definitely worth it.
