Bike theft

On august 31 between 10pm and midnight somebody walked back into my friends yard around north ave and wood st and walked out with my bike that should have been locked up but wasn't. It was not visible from the street or alley so someone is definitely intentionally walking through backyards to find things to steal. I doubt it will surface but it is a blue schwinn with heavily padded high seat, black water bottle holder, rear rack with an orange and black lock, hand grips coming apart, kickstand.

  • Besides Craigslist and pawn shops, does anybody know other websites or places to look?

  • Swap-O-Rama on S Ashland sees a large number of stolen bikes

Printed and Framed

Where is a good place in bucktown to get a picture printed and framed? Not looking for the highest quality frame or anything. Just a good value. Maybe 5 feet by 4 feet large print and frame.

  • Ginna R. Bucktown resident & business owner

    I love Frame Factory @ 1809 W. Webster. Or Webster Street Picture Frame at 2115 W. Webster

  • Not necessarily in Bucktown, but Michael's on Elston always does a great job! They have weekly framing coupons. See here: http://weeklyad.michaels.com/coupons

looking for kittens

I am looking to adopt two kittens for our house, does anyone know of any that are ready to go to a new home?

  • Hi Ariel. My wife and I are actually trying to find a home for our two cats. They've been together for about 6 years and we are trying to keep them together if at all possible. They are fantastic cats love playing with each other and sitting on the deck with us. They are free to a good family and someone that will enjoy them as much as we have over the years. Let me know if you would like to come over and meet them!

  • Hi there, I also have 2 cats that we've had for 5yrs. I love them a lot but we have a newborn and I can't keep the shedding under control. The boy is an adorable long hair, black cat. He's super lovable and likes to cuddle. The girl is a black/white short hair. She's very sweet too.
    Let me know if you're interested

Bucktown Arts Fest Rant

When you charge $6-$8 for a cup of beer that's called gouging the tourists. I remember when the Bucktown Arts fest had neighborly pricing like $2/beer to encourage neighbors to come out and socialize this last weekend of summer. This was back when it was rumored Wendy would not allow a band to play at this fest unless they played at her bar. Even food vendors were by my estimate $2 higher on similar items than last year and there...

When you charge $6-$8 for a cup of beer that's called gouging the tourists. I remember when the Bucktown Arts fest had neighborly pricing like $2/beer to encourage neighbors to come out and socialize this last weekend of summer. This was back when it was rumored Wendy would not allow a band to play at this fest unless they played at her bar. Even food vendors were by my estimate $2 higher on similar items than last year and there were less of them this year which means there might be a lot of other fees being imposed keeping them out.
IMHO the Arts fest has ceased being something for the neighborhood and more for tourists who need some place to go other than Navy Pier. Is there any way of getting our old Arts fest back or has money interests totally taken over?

That's the end of my rant for now. :-)

  • Wow, that is great - I stand corrected in my comments which compared the the Bucktown Art Fest to some of the other neighborhood festivals. Thank you for the informative response. Much appreciated.

Glass Block Windows

While I love the natural light through glass block windows, I hate all the issues that come with them, including leaking water. With the massive amounts of rain this summer (horizontal rain for that matter) we have found ours to not be sealed very well. Same issue at a previous residence. Does anyone know someone to fix the issue once and for all, rather than recommending we replace with traditional windows?

  • We use Mason Master Schmid for our masonry/sealant. He gave us a quote on fixing our glass tiles, but we haven't done it in full yet. We've had minor tuckpointing and rubberizing around the tiles as a stop gap. Andriy has done several things for us and we'll use him when we do part 2 for our condo building. He's doing a job on Chicago Ave as well. Totally trust him. Give him a call for an estimate at 224-522-1260.

Thank you to the nearly 250 volunteers who signed up to help patrons, help artists, pour beer, pick up trash and so much more. We could not do it without you.

And most of all, thank you to our neighbors who are so supportive of our fest and its mission. Being in the neighborhood and park under a canopy of trees is what makes the Bucktown Arts Fest so uniquely wonderful (in our own humble opinion). We are so grateful to you.

After we pay for the fest expenses, here's what we do with all the profits from beer sales, tee shirts and other merchandise:

Next year will be our 30th year - and we could not be more excited. See you then.

I love the fest

I love this fest. The difference between this fest and others is affordability. I purchased a number of items and paid less than 200 bucks. What other fest in the city sells affordable art???? So folks, check it out and enjoy. I am not a beer drinker so sorry I cannot comment upon the prices. But I brought in an iced tea so all was good in the world, until I came home and turned on the news.....

  • Agreed easily one of my favorite fests in the city. Lack of crowds and drunkards was refreshing.

  • Bucktown Arts Fest A fest by the community for the community

    We are awfully happy to hear it! Thanks for being a part of it and helping our community in the process.
