Anyone know where I could find or special order unicorn donuts?

Hey Everyone,

I’m looking to order unicorn donuts for an upcoming party but haven’t been able to track any down. Anyone know of a place that makes them or would accept special orders for such an item? Does not need to be in the Portage Park area directly.

I’ve attached a photo for reference of what I’m looking for.

Thanks in advance!

  • Allegretti's has the best chocolate donuts on earth!!!

looking for a tuckpointer

I've been looking for someone to do some basic tuckpointing (install a new window sill, maybe expand/brick over a window or two) for the last month or two now and I cannot seem to get anyone to answer their phone or come do the work. I should have asked on here earlier, but does anyone have a tuckpointer that they recommend? Or even a window company that they could recommend as they maybe able to do the work as well since the windows need replaced.

  • Sol is right, and getting very cold next week. Temps should be 40F+ a the bare minimum, even overnight. Wait til spring

  • Thanks ABC and everyone else. I was hoping to get the little work done this week while it was warmer and push the rest of the work back. The one person I did get ahold of bailed on me last minute though so it'll wait till the next warm patch now. ABC if you want to send me referrals I'd take them. I've got a lot of work (new lentils, attic vents, etc) that I'll need in the next year on top of this silly window sill.

Vacant Lots

Hi Everyblock:

I am curious about udpates the following locations and can share what I know also.
1) Irving and Central: Was supposed to be a Starbucks. Sposato's assistant said it would not be built unless another business joins in for development on that lot. I am not sure who pursues clients-developers, Starbucks, aldermen?

2) Elly's Pancake House: I thought that was supposed to go near the Culver's, but do not see anything. Does anyone have an update?

3) Waveland...

3) Waveland /Central: My calls to Alderman Villegas have not been returned. I thought it was going to be a home for seniors, but not sure. Is there any update on this?

4) Six Corners: Same- not getting calls returned. I am guessing Sears will make announcements after their Q4 earnings come in so maybe developers are waiting to hear about that site also. Just not sure.

5) Central and Berteau: Mia's Gelato. It usually closes in the winter, but maybe the summer was not strong enough for them. They have a Brokerage sign on the window showing it's available for lease.

Restaurant at Narragansett and Addison

What happened to that restaurant? Drove past this week and it was torn apart by fire?!
They were supposed to open last summer, 24 hours - which was an eyesore.
It looks all burned up. Hope insurance will follow through!

    El Cubanito at 2555 N. Pulaski has a fabulous steak sandwich and menu. Now instead of just having a counter and carryouts, they expanded and have really nice dining room. A couple of their specialty side items include straw fries and bubble coke. Owner was a really nice guy, parents from Cuba, business has been around for quite some time.

  • I hear the Cuban sandwich shop will do breakfast and lunch and is the third shop for the family that runs it. BTW a friendly note to the OP, Cindy...in no way was YoJoe's ever a restaurant.

Splendid Soap Shop

I just found a wonderful little shop at Irving Park Rd and Mead (across from The Portage Theatre) called Distinct Bath and Body.
They sell handmade soap (made on site), bath salts, scrubs, face masks, shaving soaps, loofahs, etc.
Everything smells wonderful and the owner is friendly and attentive.
If you love artisinal bath products, you gotta check it out!

  • Forgot to mention axe throwing, Culver's and Binny's too. haha

  • Spam Alert Don't be selling your used junk up in here, okay?

    Was kind of irritated to feel tricked into "liking" a three+ year-old thread that someone bumped. Then read all the friendly, informative comments (ax throwing aside) and am glad I did! Hope the shop prospers in its new location.
