Huge Protest Planned For Milo Yiannopoulos' Patio Theater Show

CHICAGO — More than 300 people were signed up by Friday afternoon to meet alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos with chants and pickets signs when he arrives for a scheduled speaking event at Patio Theater, 6008 W. Irving Park Road, next month.

But Melissa Basilone, who co-owns four businesses in the 6000 block of Irving Park Road with her husband Joe, said the theater operators were "shooting themselves in the foot" with their controversial decision.

The Basilones offered to host protesters at their Perkolator Cafe, 6032 W. Irving Park Road, posting in the event page that "Hate has no home in the Irving Austin Business District, period."

    In 1960, McKee Foods founder O.D. McKee was trying to come up with a catchy name for their new family-pack cartons of snack cakes. Packaging supplier Bob Mosher suggested using a family member's name. Thinking of what could be a good fit for the brand, O.D. arrived at the name of his 4-year-old granddaughter Debbie. Inspired by a photo of Debbie in play clothes and her favorite straw hat, he decided to use the name Little Debbie® and the image of her on the logo. Not until the first cartons were being printed did Debbie's parents, Ellsworth and Sharon McKee, discover that their daughter was the namesake of the new brand.

I told her it was for safety. I asked, why in the world would you want a toy with sharp edges?. she said how else are you supposed to teach children to be careful? it was an unexpected point, but does make some sense I guess.

    They claim to want to get rid of segregation because Chicago is so known for that however this city is so far gone for that and nothing about this city is run right or legal. It has corrupted the authorities and everyone in "charge". It's very sad who knows anymore who is "good or bad".@weebis you are so right on with your comment worse run city/county in the nation. I have nothing holding me here and I am for sure going to be lifting myself out of my comfort zone to move out of here. Giving so much money to this city and for what. I bet the segregation won't be happening in certain areas such as the one the mayor
    Lives in. He will continue to keep himself and loved ones in there own "perfect" city living. People have no respect anymore and don't care they live for basically free and it has came to the point where they feel like it should be given to them and it should be given to them wherever they want and hey if they want someone else's things they feel they can take it or destroy property because you ask them not to sit on your porch or your car it's there world and we just live in it. Call the police for these reasons and they look or speak to like what's the problem here don't waste our time for nonsense they stole your converter on your car sorry maybe you shouldn't park it on the street it's all just pathetic and just continues to get worse.

    As this city, county, and state circle the toilet, Arena's 'Gangbanger Paradise' at 5151 N. Northwest Highway will be the crowning turd for the northwest side demise.

    Gunfire by violent felons released by Dart, not prosecuted by Foxx, coddled and celebrated by Emanuel and Preckwinkle will become the 'crickets of the night,' along with the sirens of responding ambulances and squad cars.

BREAKING NEWS!!! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE...

From the Office of Mayor Wrong E. Manual

As a result of an intensive 10 year study from the University of Chicargo, the city council has voted for the immediate removal of all automobiles,vans, trucks or similar devices from within the city. The study clearly shows that 100% of all accidents involving injury to pedestrians and motorists or their passengers are associated with self powered motorized conveyances.Therefore, the only sound remedy is the removal of all such machines from our community.

Effective on December 1, 2017, any person possessing or operating an automobile, van, truck or similar device within the city limits will be arrested on felony one charges of willful pubic endangerment under the new municipal code (under home rule exception). There will be no second chance.

New transportation permits will be available for single or multiple horse, mule or bicycle drawn carriages at a rate varying from $50-200 per year. There will be an additional fine for failure to remove animal feces on the roadway of $50 per incident.

Because of their ability to exceed new speed limits of 10 MPH, genetically engineered transportation animals are forbidden and if suspected, a DNA sample will be taken. If found in violation, an additional fine of $1,000.

For those citizens requiring handicapped exemptions, rickshaw allowances may be granted upon full vetting and approval. Prevailing applicants must demonstrate they cannot walk from the corner of State and Madison to clerk's desk at city hall without having a heart attack or stroke.

Regardless of conveyance form, a city sticker priced at $500 per year will still be required for each axle of a conveyance.

Existing boot and impoundment ordinances will remain in force as modified for the new forms of conveyances.

Stay tuned for more details... LOL!

    You don't NEED $$$. You NEED to get creative in your teaching approach. We taxpayers already pay enough.

    If you truly believe this is a need, is it so necessary and required, that you would consider making it something for which you would strike next time around?

    I thought not...you will strike for more money...just like last time and the time before that and the time before that.

    Arena is the one who does not support business. Arena killed the City funding for the Jefferson Park Chamber of Commerce not once but twice. Arena went on an out of control rant demanding that the City department that funds the Chambers in the City not give the funding to the Jefferson Park Chamber. You don't seem to understand that Arena killed the funding for the Jeff Chamber not once but twice. John Arena is the biggest phony on the Chicago City Council!

    My child was accepted as a 2nd grade student at Thorp Academy the same year Mr. Toledo became the school principal. She is now in 7th grade I can say for certainty that each year Thorp has improved in every area that pertains to student life, academic enhancements and parental communication. In my opinion, I would fully recommend Thorp Academy to prospective parents, primarily for Mr. Toledo's leadership, the teachers/instructors and the support staff. Job well done!

Boarded up apartment bldg on 3700 Central?

Does anyone know what gives with the boarded up apartments on 3700 (ish) Central. Looks like a gut to condo and they're waiting for all tenant leases to expire? Been this way for a long while now and is not a pretty sight.

  • If you are referring to the one on Byron/Central, it is a huge eyesore. I believe former slumlord had a ton of code violations that where tied up in court and never corrected and then home was foreclosed. Now it sits there as an eyesore. Hoping some developer buys it up and turns it into a nice rehab.
