Yet ANOTHER shooting at Koncrete, formally known as Krush

One man shot another as they stood in the outdoor smoking area of what is now known as "Club Koncrete" at 1675 N. Elston in the Bucktown neighborhood.

The incident occurred last Sunday morning Feb 22 at approx 2am on the clubs property.

Almost 3 years ago one person was killed and another critically wounded in a shootout outside the club (read more here:http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-3-shot-1-dead-on-south-and-northwest-sides-20120218-story.html

The proprietors of the club have been through many City investigations and have continually been given the green light to re-open by the City's Dept. of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.

attached image from their Facebook page depicts the club is "under new management"

Dog Sitter Needed

Hello Neighbors. I live at Spaulding and Cortland. I have two male Chihuahuas and I am in desperate need of a sitter for March 16-20. My regular sitter, who is fantastic, and has sat my dogs for over 6 years, is unable to do so. Does anyone know of a responsible person whom can walk my dogs 3 times a day and feed them? The individual can stay in my apartment if need be.

Please call my cell phone: 312-852-8669
or email me: cztony@aol.com

I appreciate your neighborly help,

Cell Phone Thieves!

Careful Bucktown / Wicker Park area!

A friend got her cellphone stolen

"i did that thing where women look behind them to make sure they're not being followed--twice. both times, there was no one behind me. as i was about to cross bloomingdale, some dude ran up behind me, yanked my cell phone out of my coat pocket, and hopped into a getaway car that was waiting for him on bloomingdale"

they're driving around in a light blue or silver acura coupe IL plate: E45 1644

  • What time of day did this happen?

  • George West Bucktown Resident

    Given you have the license plate I hope your friend made a police report. If so, I live in the building on that corner and our landlord has security cameras filming down both streets. I'm not sure how long they keep them. Doesn't make me feel too safe that they are hiding out right around the corner of our building!

    With regard to the Tribune's endorsement for the 2nd Ward, it is clear that they did not do their job investigating the backgrounds and campaign contributions of all the Aldermen, unless of course they are turning a blind eye to everything they have reported on over the years including the parking meter scandal.

I hope the voters of the 2nd Ward get out and vote if they haven't already done so. They will also find it may be more difficult to vote because when they redrew the boundaries they did not bother to place any of the polls within walking distance or consider the use public transportation to get to their polling stations. Just look at the 18th precinct. Over 1000 voters in the SoNo Condo and SoNo East towers have to drive or walk 1.4 miles to vote at the Salvation Army on Clybourn. There are no buses or trains. Maybe Uber can step up to the plate on this one!
