GQ Magazine Gave a Shout Out to Logan Square Drinking Establishments

Watch out for well-dressed drunkards swarming to the neighborhood. GQ Magazine named Chicago America's Best Drinking City for 2014. Probably nothing you didn't already know but it's nice to see more national recognition for our lovely neighborhood:

Sawyer/wrightwood street lights out STILL??

Okay maybe someone posted about this already. It's been I feel a couple weeks now that the street lights have been out on Sawyer between Atlgeld and Wrightwood. Now I don't come home late at night often but when I do I certainly don't feel safe not being able to have a well lit safe street to park and walk on. I already called the aldermans about this. Anyone hear anything????

Anyone tried out Logan Square Fitness yet?

Just wondered what the overall vibe is, if it gets packed at certain hours, etc. Has anyone joined - what do you think?

  • I agree with everyone else, its never very crowded and the guy at the front desk is always really nice. The classes are free too, I've taken the yoga and x-fit class' and both are great, and the instructors are nice too. I only live two blocks away so I've never used the locker rooms, but I don't have any complaints, and its going to get bigger. They're going to open a much larger class area as well.

  • I have been a member for a couple of months and really like the convenience of the location. They offer month-to-month memberships at $39 per month (which is what I'm doing), but you can also sign up for a year at $29 per month OR 3 and 6 month memberships,...

    I have been a member for a couple of months and really like the convenience of the location. They offer month-to-month memberships at $39 per month (which is what I'm doing), but you can also sign up for a year at $29 per month OR 3 and 6 month memberships, which they are offering until the end of October (not sure how the price works out for those). I like the month to month option, especially since I had no idea if I would like it/want to stay when I first signed up. I have done a bunch of the regularly scheduled yoga classes, which are good. I have also gone to some early-morning (6:30am) pop-up yoga classes, which were great but only had 2 or 3 people. I hope they add regular morning yoga classes, but I have been told by the guy at the front desk that they are planning to push back evening classes and add additional class times as well (they said Sept. 23rd is the planned date for this, but they are notoriously bad about keeping their promises in terms of dates--see: Grand Opening).

    TL;DR Definitely worth it to join, especially if you live very close.

Physician

Anyone know of a good physician that treats anxiety. My physician left to another state and my therapist is booked until December.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Your primary care doctor should be able to refer you to a specialist

  • Tom G Living in Avondale since 1994

    Any physician can prescribe anti-anxiety meds for you for the short term and will probably refer you to a psychiatrist, which is the kind of physician that treats anxiety. If you just want a compassionate physician who has dealt with people with anxiety, I will recommend Dr. Paul Abbo. Look him up online. He might even refer you to a therapist who can fill in until yours returns. In any case, keep looking and don't give up. My prayers are with you.

Have Replacement Windows, Need Affordable Install

We have 5 replacement windows we want to install in our 1-story single family home. We're a young couple on a budget looking for someone who does professional grade work, but maybe does it on the side. Can anyone share what they've paid for similar work, and/or perhaps recommend contact info for a handyman or contractor you trust? Or instead anyone local you'd recommend avoiding? Thanks in advance!

  • My neighbor does an excellent job; do you want me to contact him? You can see his windows done in his home as well.

  • We've had All American Glass out twice recently to fix windows (not replace). The first fix was so quick and easy for them, they did it for free. The second time, they replace a very large broken window pane and it was very fast and very quick. I would recommend them to at least give you an estimate. We would definitely use them again.

Feral cat help needed.

Hi neighbors. Looking for some help for a feral cat I have been feeding for past 10 years. I am moving out of the state and cannot bring a feral to condo I am renting as there is no backyard for her and no room inside with my seven cats. Ideally one of my neighbors will continue to feed her but if not maybe someone knows of a nearby cat colony I can relocate her to. I am on Whipple between Schubert and Logan Blvd. she was trapped and fixed many years ago.

  • I've done several Cats at Work deployments, but didn't know about an age issue-thanks. It would be hard to relocate a feral cat without it spending several weeks in an acclimation crate, with a caretaker providing daily care (food, litter box cleaning, etc.). Otherwise, the cat will just take off.

  • PetParent Founder of Pets Are Like Family

    Tree House is definitely your best bet. They are the sanctioned organization that registers feral cat caretakers on the north side of Chicago. PAWS registers those on the south side and several suburban groups register other parts of Cook County. This is part of the Cook County Feral Cat Ordinance....

    Tree House is definitely your best bet. They are the sanctioned organization that registers feral cat caretakers on the north side of Chicago. PAWS registers those on the south side and several suburban groups register other parts of Cook County. This is part of the Cook County Feral Cat Ordinance. I am a registered feral cat caretaker through Tree House. Yes, they are often busy and overworked and underfunded, like any other non-profit, but they do help. There is a process that they employ for relocating feral cats from one colony to another. They do help with this. Please reach out to them, and thank you so much for caring for this outdoor cat all these years.

Crosswalk Enforcement

Did anyone else notice eight or so CPD vehicles nailing cars for not stopping in the crosswalks by the Logan Square Blue Line stop? I know it needs to be enforced, but are eight cars necessary? It was causing a bit of a traffic jam with the cars pulled over and adding more stress to a crappy day and people trying to get on the L.

  • If crosswalk laws can be implemented successfully in several major cities (all the ones I've lived in plus others, including car-centric LA and masshole centric Boston), perhaps the driving culture of Chicago is the thing that isn't smart.

    Roll out of the law seems botched, and aside from a sting enforcement is non-existent.

    The law is not the problem.

  • Peter C. . . good point! As a driver I was unaware of the new state law a year after it was in place.

#56 Milwaukee buses are also available as alternate service to reach Logan Square or Western stations, downtown, or other destinations along the Blue Line. Additional #56 service will be added between California and downtown during weekday rush periods, southbound in the morning and northbound in the evening.

Overnight bus service will be provided on the new #N56 California Station Owl route during the closure, to link to the closest stations in either direction of the closed California station.

    The shuttles were only used when they were doing track work this summer and had entire stretches (usually 2-3 stations long) fully closed with no trains operating due to the track work.

    The California and Damen closures are to rehab the station houses, not track work, so trains run right on through without stopping. I did notice a good slow down last night on the way home a bit later in the evening.

    All this work is part of the large ~$500M Blue Line renovation, but there were two very different phases.

    Again, only extra buses are being made available, no shuttles during this station closure phase I believe.

This is why i firmly believe politics and private business needs to remain separate. I have been following this situation closely. As a longtime resident I wasn't overly thrilled a bar was replacing provenance. We need locally sourced retail in our neighborhood, as this helps grow the core of what we are all about. I have shopped and supported provenance for over 6 years and was very upset they were leaving their space. I attended a community meeting a few weeks back and was completely surprised by what I heard. Most importantly, these were 3 local residents I.e. small business owners. They planned to keep a retail component w/ their business model, adding produce also & plans to expand to a full on wine/packaged goods & retail component in the building. This wasn't just a bar as what I read on here and provenances FB page. I was very disappointed to find out though that provenance, who started this campaign to stay in the spot via reaching out to the alderman, is now playing dirty pool.

The owners of provenance have quietly spread the word they may be staying. It appears they are threatening to remain in the space unless they are compensated by the building owner in an effort to block the new owners from buying the building. Was this the advice of the alderman interactions? To play the role of poor me then threaten to squat to block a sell of the building? Did the building owner or new owner do something illegal here by giving them 60 days notice to vacate after not agreeing to extend their lease per Provenances FB page? If this is true, Shame on you Provenance for rallying support of our neighborhood, then trying to extort payment because apparently it's only your right to do business in the space.

Signed,
a very disappointed FORMER customer.

  • John as an insurance broker I could appreciate confidentiality. My point was not clear. If one was to inquire about a property for sale, if asked, wouldn't an investor be privy to if there were active leases and if there were issues, I.E. Full Disclosure, from the agent representing the property.

    It's not uncommon for people to chat aka vent about a deal going south also over drinks, no? If that was the case, all of us salesmen would be in trouble.

Katherine Davis returns this year to the Joint! after mesmerizing last year's audience with her take on Jazz standards. Davis is part of the "Blues in the Schools" program serving Chicago Public Schools.

Rhe Guillemet will make his Joint! debut. Guillemet is a pianist and tenor who was born into a family of Jazz musicians and has played the guitar since he was four. He has performed all over the world and is currently working on a album set for release next year.

Rounding out the bill is a surprise performance by a well known Logan Square public figure who will perform several songs on the piano accompanied by one of his (Hint) volunteers.

Jumpin' JAZZ Joint is being co-sponsored by State Senator Iris Y. Martinez, Liberty Bank for Savings, 35th Ward Democratic Committeeman Nancy Schiavone, FoodSmart, Moe's Tavern, Fireside Bowl, Revolution Brewing and Jane Heron.

I told you I'd give you an update on the chandelier adoption and then promptly misplaced your number. The chandelier cleaned up beautifully and works like a charm just as you said it would. It has been very happy in its new home. Thank you so much for your generosity!

    Bill, HUGE thumbs up for CVE. Compassionate and, frankly more important to me, they were efficient, effective and answered my every question and concern with knowledge and professionalism. I have several other friends how have also high praises for CVE (which is why I went there in the first place).

    If you need after-care suggestions, like physical therapy, let me know and I'll get the recommendations from friends with pooches who had similar experiences and great results with the physical therapy office they went to.

    Best of luck to you and your pooch!

  • So, Bill, what did you end up doing? With my four year old Weimaraner, he was too active and obviously in pain so, I eventually had the surgery and after a little dog physical therapy he is back to about 95%. The best part though is he is not continually re-injuring it, in pain, and suffering from muscle wasting on that side.

Sometimes that's with them, but often times, you are correct - they often go to the CACC (PAWS is usually close to full at all times, as that's the entire point of their organization). However there is no conspiracy to "hide" this - it is in fact spelled out clearly when releasing an animal to them.

    3) There is no issue with you stating what is already transparent information, but you clearly have an ax to grind with the CACC. You may consider the CACC "nasty", but editorializing an organization that's both needed in the city (by the population as well as animal rescues) and actively working towards animal welfare is doing no one any favors with your narrow viewpoint. You may have had an unfortunate situation with the CACC, but it's also unfair to paint the org as universally reviled because of it (hence my comments).

    4) I'm not going to have a discussion on CACC politics and operations and further derail this thread.

    If that dog's owners cannot be found (and as @rogerparker says, owners are told to check the CACC first and foremost) and she ends up at the CACC, I can guarantee you that as long as she's not horribly reactive to anyone who approaches her that dog will stay there MAYBE a month (more like two weeks at most). Dogs like that have no problem finding homes and are snapped up instantly at the CACC.

    Hopefully this little one finds her home! If not if you need someone to take her in or if she will be able to foster/adopt please let me know. I am looking for a beagle and a female at that. I have had no luck so far but I have experience with this breed and I have another medium sized pup at the moment who needs a friend. I work in the dog care industry so it's definitely not my first rodeo. I'm unsure if it's still okay to call you but if so, please do let me know I'd love to keep in contact about her.

Provenance Food and Wine to close Sep 27 & what you can do about it

In a nutshell, new landlords didn't renew their lease and they will have to vacate by September 27.

http://chicagoist.com/2014/08/07/provenance_food_wines_logan_square.php

Apparently, Alderman Moreno wants to help, so calling all neighbors to call/write the Alderman to help Provenance stay at its current location through the holiday season. This is the only way the owners will at least be in a position to consider keeping the store in the neighborhood, given the financial burden of moving. The alderman's chief of staff's e-mail is Raymond.Valadez@cityofchicago.org.

    Andrew-I think public officials would label the answer to all of your questions under the heading, "constituent services." The questions you pose are imponderables, and have existed since the birth of government. Why did one who pled his case before Hammurabi deserve to be recognized before the thousands of other cases that could have warranted the emperor's attentions? Ask, and you may or may not receive. Provenance asked, they received. As for the standard you seek to understand, that answer can only be provided by Hammurabi, err...the Alderman's office. Everyblock's users won't provide your sought for objectivity.

    This is why i firmly believe politics and private business needs to remain separate. I have been following this situation closely. As a longtime resident I wasn't overly thrilled a bar was replacing provenance. We need locally sourced retail in our neighborhood, as this helps grow the core of what we are all about. I attended the community meeting a few weeks back and was completely surprised by what I heard. Most importantly, these were 3 local residents I.e. small business owners. They planned to keep a retail component w/ their business model, adding produce also & plans to expand to a full on wine/packaged goods & retail component in the building. This wasn't just a bar as what I read on here. I was very disappointed to find out though that provenance, who started this campaign to stay in the spot via reaching out to the alderman, is now playing dirty pool.

    The owners of provenance have quietly spread the word they may be staying. It appears they are threatening to remain in the space unless they are compensated by the building owner in an effort to block the new owners from buying the building. Was this the doings of the alderman interactions? To play the role of poor me then threaten to squat to block a sell of the building? Did the building owner or new owner do something illegal here by giving them 60 days notice to vacate after not agreeing to extend their lease per Provenances FB page? If this is true, Shame on you Provenance for rallying support of the neighborhood, then trying to extort payment because apparently it's your right to do business in the space only.
