    Lawrence House | Historic Preservation | moss Design
    The Lawrence House, a stunning showcase of historic preservation, is now mostly open to tenants. Formerly a residential hotel in the '20s, the roost of cosmopolitans who were seldom home, the Lawrence House later became a retirement hotel (fun fact, my grandma lived there for a time).

    "Mr Plastic is a design engineer"

    Mr. Plastic could tell us he's a rainbow pooping unicorn, that doesn't mean it's true just because Mr. Plastic says it is. Maybe Mr. Plastic doesn't live Edgewater and doesn't drive a shiny new car at all. Maybe Mr. Plastic lives in Rogers Park studio and drives an '83 corolla. No real way to tell.

    Chicago bar says it won't sell some beers following exec's Trump support
    A bar in Chicago's Roscoe Village neighborhood is vowing not to buy certain beers after a company executive held a fundraiser for President-elect Donald Trump over the summer. The Green Lady at 3328 North Lincoln Avenue, is discontinuing the purchase of Miller Lite and Miller High life after, citing the Denver Post, MillerCoors Vice-Chairman Pete Coors supported Trump this summer.

  • It's probably not hard to boycott a bar you've never been to anyway. And I think, as time goes on, more of us will wish we'd done something - anything - to try to prevent what many of us fear will be coming to pass. Even his ardent supporters, who are very likely in for a rude awakening, if the Cabinet picks thus far are any indication.

  • A bar, in what was once a blue collar, working class neighborhood (until gentrification forced those folks out) and is now inhabited by silver spoon kids from Iowa, Ohio & the suburbs, is at odds with the ideology of Donald Trump? Oh! And, it wasn't called Roscoe Village until the greedy real estate developers renamed the area. "Everyone" is a hypocrite!

    Glad they were caught, it appears as if women walking alone are easy prey. My wife was also a victim last year. We all need to be more vigilant and walk in pairs or carry defense mechanisms if alone. My wife's robber was also caught.

The Green Lady, at 3328 N. Lincoln Ave., only had Miller beers on hand for "at the end of the night, when customers go to macro, or something a little lighter," Domingues said.

    If your looking to save some money, Menards has great trees for a really good prices. We bought 2 trees last night, one 8-9 foot for us and one 6-7 foot for our elderly aunt who lives upstairs from us. Both Frasier Furs although they had about 3 different other kinds. In total we spent $75 on 2 beautiful trees. No, unfortunately the $ doesn't support a school or a noble purpose, it just keeps more $ in your pocket book that creates opportunity for you to then support a worthy cause :)

Concrete scam

Company calling itself All Seasons Roofing (Sam Mitchell) knocking on doors to fill cracks on condo steps. Gives $70 price quote and when job is complete they say price quote was per pound x 10 lbs! Business cards fake. Company cannot be found. Don't hire them!

  • And no matter how big the job is, ALWAYS get everything in writing and have the contractor sign. We have a book of receipts on hand that we use if the person says they don't have a contract. We fill out the price and make them sign before issuing payment.
