Interior Painter

Does anyone have a recommendation for a painting company for the south loop? It would be for painting basically everything in my 2 bed 2 bath condo along with doors and trim, and maybe kitchen cabinets.

    Be careful with Angie's List; it have become "pay to play" for contractors

  • Yeah, one of my contractors did mention that he had to pay and he didn't when he first joined Angies list. But that is between him and Angie. Whats important to me is the reviews from past clients. If Angie is making sure she gets a cut from all the business the vedors get because of her I might consider that being a good business person. I would be more cconcerned if venders were trying to pay clients for good reviews.

Best Internet?

Hey I'm new to these boards so sorry if this is not right. We are looking for just internet because we currently share with our basement neighbor and it's terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • U Verse by AT&T is good. I've had their internet and wifi for about 6 years. The Pro & Elite speeds are awesome. I have the Pro speed. Good luck

  • We live at 18th and S. Calumet, and have ATT. They refuse (we've talked to C-level offices) to upgrade the antique copper wire they installed in 2003--to fiber optics. So best you can get is 12 mbps on WIFI in your home.

    We live at 18th and S. Calumet, and have ATT. They refuse (we've talked to C-level offices) to upgrade the antique copper wire they installed in 2003--to fiber optics. So best you can get is 12 mbps on WIFI in your home.
    I do NOT recommend them. When their in the field service people say the ATT level 18 mbps ATT sold us-- is UNavailable due to old hardware--it's lousy.
    We canceled Comcast within a week due to the story changing (lying) of their people. Remember the customer service call that went viral? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/22/comcast-earnings_n_5609755.html

Question about a field in South Grant Park

See the photo attached for the area I'm referencing. Does anyone know when that fairly large field will be back open? This is on the west side of the tracks near 11th street pedestrian bridge. It's been fenced off since the beginning of the year, if I recall correctly.

    All the skate will be is a place for the thugs to congregate and disturb the peace because our mayor will not hire more cops. He must be defeated along with his aldermen like Burns, Pat Dowell, Jason ervin and the new Daley that's running.

  • Yeah, it's going to be a place where they skate, drink, and smoke drugs like they do with the other little one on the other side of the tracks.

Will burns and Rahm at jones college prep

I have never been as infuriated as I was today when alderman Fioretti was excluded from the jones festivities. Will burns had nothing to do with jones. Fioretti worked tirelessly with all parties to make Jones what it is today, now Rahm and burns have excluded him and taking credit. Their behavior is disgraceful and disrespectful. Contact them and express your sentiments.

  • South Loop truth Poliical activist

    Children are dying, schools are being closed and all she does is vote with Rahm to cut the amount of police and allow his appointed school board to close schools and have more charters to reward his friends like Bruce Rauner.

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    Absolutely!

Late Night Music

Did anyone on South Prairie hear tuba music last night around 11:00pm? There wasn't anything going on at Soldier Field or Northernly Island, it was really weird.

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.

Residents Decry Viaducts on 16th St.: 'Our Front Yard Looks Like a Toilet'

A group of University Village residents wants the city to fix the “abysmal” streets and sidewalks that run under the 16th Street viaducts once and for all.

  • Michelle Fennessy Twitter @drfennessy

    Thanks Danny! Tell everyone you know to sign petition at www.chicagoviaduct.com (our #pilsencares group bought the domain). Send gnarly pics to twitter and Instagram @chicagoviaduct. We have cultures brewing of filth we collected at Racine viaduct. We plan on presenting data from petition (including comments that residents leave) and culture results to city. I'm working through city hall connections so we are not alone. Chicago I need you to rally!!!

New coffeehouse in West Loop

A new, independent coffeehouse is coming to West Loop! The Ugly Mug Cafe, in West Town, is opening it's second location in early 2015. What's interesting is they are seeking customers and new neighbors to fund a community-sourced loan for the costs of construction. They are choosing this type of loan instead of traditional financing because they believe in the benefit of community involvement to grow the cafe and the neighborhood. FYI, they built their patio this year using this same lending method.

Check out how this works and how you can invest in the neighborhood you love:

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.).
