NBC News video of Pawn Shops in 30th Ward

This video from a story NBC5 news did, is for anyone who cares about the 30th ward. It was shared with me recently regarding the politics of this ward and the impact of too many pawn shops in neighborhoods. Copy and paste in your browser to watch. It is deplorable.

  • Kelly, if you want more exposure on EB for your posts, try posting in a wider location. You can post to a whole ward or zip code for example. This post you made is only showing up in Cragin, so only people who follow or check on Cragin will see it. That's probably a pretty small number of people compared to zip codes or wards.

  • I don't know how to do that! But would love it if you could copy and post to wards/zip codes that may be affected, if it is no trouble. Thanks

Zacateca's Restaurant and Magos Tacos & Tamale's

2 more good eating establishments to try in the Diversey and Laramie area are Zacateca's and Magos. Zacateca's has been well established at 5037 Diversey for several years. For a couple years the name was changed to El Jerzano but is now back to Zacateca's. It's another great local neighborhood restaurant with good food for reasonable prices. We have been frequenting Zacateca's for several years and were always happy. A new diner style Hispanic restaurant is Magos Tacos and Tamales...

2 more good eating establishments to try in the Diversey and Laramie area are Zacateca's and Magos. Zacateca's has been well established at 5037 Diversey for several years. For a couple years the name was changed to El Jerzano but is now back to Zacateca's. It's another great local neighborhood restaurant with good food for reasonable prices. We have been frequenting Zacateca's for several years and were always happy. A new diner style Hispanic restaurant is Magos Tacos and Tamales at 5211 Diversey. A neighbor recommended it to us for the tamales. Since then we've been picking up tamales by the bag full. Haven't tried the rest of the menu yet but will soon after the weather breaks. Both restaurants work great for us because of being walking distance from home.
