    CTA Is Partly to Blame for the Lack of East-West Bike Lanes
    Last Wednesday Mayor Rahm Emanuel broke ground on what the city is calling the 312 RiverRun trail, improvements to the nearly two-mile stretch of riverfront between Belmont and Montrose that will link up three different parks. The project includes the Riverview Bridge, which will connect Clark Park on the east side of the waterway and California Park on the west bank.

    13 Chicago Tattoo Shops Offering Friday The 13th Specials
    CHICAGO (CBS) - While superstitious for some, it's a tattoo lovers holiday: Friday the 13th. Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day to most in the Western hemisphere. It occurs when the 13th day of the month falls on a Friday. The event occurs at least once every year, and sometimes up to three times a year.

    A friend of mine had two large tattoo removed from both arms with the laser method. It looks good, but results vary from person to person, tattoo to tattoo, body part to body part..
    Its worth a shot tell your friend, the results will be known fairly early in the process.

  • Deanna Remembers when EveryBlock was fun

    Inactive User - Speakeasy Custom Tattoo does tattoo removal. I've seen some of the removal work, and it looks good. They will be honest with you if they think your tattoo won't respond well to their removal system. It's not a fast process, and it's not pain-free, but it works.
