Be aware of this scam!

3 eastern european men are driving around in a green truck posing as roofers. I've attached a photo of one of their fliers. Note the address of the business is 6802 N Western, which is the vacant lot on the N/W corner of Western/Pratt. Please spread the word and don't open your doors to them. The 24th District has been made aware of it. If they knock on your door please call 911.

  • This is valuabe, neighborly info for our community. Thanks for the warning! It's one of the reasons I joined Everyblock when I moved here. I"ve almost quit several times due to many ridiculous, petty quarrels.

  • That address used to be the old bowling alley.

    Weekly Update from Your Alderman - December 16, 2016
    This week City Council voted to approve a $1.3 million Legal Protection Fund in partnership with the National Immigrant Justice Center to assist thousands of immigrants and refugees threatened with deportation. I am supportive of this measure, as it is reflective of Chicago's status as a Sanctuary City, and reflective of the spirit of our diverse, welcoming, and supportive community.

  • Since this was a food inspection, I wonder what they offered (besides popcorn)...

  • I think they also had candy..and pop.
    Though would that warrant a food inspection?

Chicago’s ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ Is This Weekend!

...Just jump on the train or join the meet up at the parking garage at 1210 W. Arthur near the Loyola CTA station...

    Chicago's 'No Pants Subway Ride' Is This Weekend!
    Ohhh it's a bad weekend to have this in Chicago with temps in the teens. Tons of people will be riding the CTA red line with NO PANTS! It's an annual thing now. If you are on the red line this Sunday after 12 noon...you will see it.

The No Pants Subway Ride Returns To Chicago

The event is open to the public, which means you’re invited, if you have a great sense of humor! It will take place at noon this Sunday on the CTA Red Line! Participants will meet at the parking garage at 1210 W Arthur Ave. Here’s some hilarious photos from last year! Lizzy Buczak

    The No Pants Subway Ride Returns To Chicago
    Don't be alarmed if you see someone on the Red Line this Sunday without pants on! Did you know this existed? This annual event was started in 2002 by New York City-based collective Improv Everywhere. More than 30 cities worldwide will participate in the infamous No Pants Subway Ride. It's purpose?

  • V neck trousers are A funny reference to a fly being open

  • Harmless, light-hearted fun that gave the Wazzy-world enough of an eyefull and V-necks to last all year long. Two thumbs up to NYC's Improv Everywhere for blitzing from Berlin to Moscow to Mexico City including the Brit version of No Trousers on the Tube.

Stucco Bungalows on Arthur, 1915

    Stucco Bungalows on Arthur, 1915
    I've written a number of posts about collections of homes planned, designed and built by early developers in the neighborhood. These range from a few identical cottages to more complex arrangements of alternating designs. These small scale developments are found throughout Chicago and their quiet existence probably accounts for most of the city's small-scale speculative residential development.

    @Larry Shure - Great stuff, as is usual for you. Thanks so much!

    By the way, if you try to look up Edgar Bergen in records you will have some trouble because he changed his name to Bergen from Bergren.
