I found your fitbit!

I found a fitbit this morning near Jefferson and Monroe. The display shows me the name, so if you lost one in the area and it matches, Id love to return it to you!

    Also, I just checked on line. If you communicated with Fitbit, if they will send you a prepaid envelope to send in the Fitbit and they will reunite it with the owner. I know that it worked when my son lost his keys with a Divvy Key on it. Maybe others have experience with Fitbit.

    Anyway, this is really nice of you and this forum is a great resource.

Happy Hour Spots

Looking for a good happy hour spot to hopefully mingle with some new people. Preferably a place where a decent amount of people frequent within the 26-36 age range. Would love suggestions on some places to go to. Thanks in advance!

New coffee shop in Fulton Market

Hi ..read this story in Chicago Business regarding a mom and pop shop that builds bikes and also has a coffee shop. States that they will open 3 more coffee shops - 1 in fulton Market. Anyone know where it may be located? I googled but came up empty.

Always like independant coffee shops vs Starbucks! Which brings me to say that one of my favorites is Jupiter Outpost also on Fulton:

If you have never been there, you should go. Cute place!

What's the Deal with River North Restaurants Shorting Peoples' Change?

I ordered carry out from a restaurant in River North last night. The order came out to $18.51. I paid with cash. The cashier gave me one dollar back and said they don't have any change -- so they just tried to short me the rest. Have your experienced this?

I called to talk to the manager about this and she was totally indignant. Apparently , she said that most restaurants in River North don't want to bother with cash...

I called to talk to the manager about this and she was totally indignant. Apparently , she said that most restaurants in River North don't want to bother with cash so they round up or down. WTH!?

1st off, on a personal note, I go to this place 3 - 4 times a month, so this could really add up over the year.

2nd, they could be potentially dodging some major taxes. They also round up and give people whose bills are .01-49 the extra dollar. Not sure how it washes out in the end, but it seems pretty shady and annoying. If they don't want to bother with change, they should list prices rounded to the nearest dollar(that include tax) on their menu like food trucks.,

    This sounds like part of the self-entitlement trend, along with tip jars at fast-food and places where you order food and coffee and they serve you at the counter.

    I mean like Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks, not like lunch counter places.

Development across from Target

Does anyone know what is being built across Aberdeen street from the Target store on Jackson ? I see signs that it's being developed by Praedium Development Corp. They are based in Northbrook but have no working website and what appears to be a History with strip malls. Usually I can find something on the Internet about a development. I think First Eagle Bank was doing the financing. I'm hoping for a Panera....

  • Bob H Family in the neighborhood since ~1905

    I remember Alderman Fioretti saying something a couple of town hall meetings ago about someone wanting to put in townhouses. As you note, it's a bit small for retail. Can you tell from the foundation whether it's party-wall buildings?

  • Marco from Tropoje Two-flat owner

    They have it fenced in so I can't really see. There is a "retail space available" sign there which leads me to think more Doctor's Office than Sub Shop.
