Will Binny's be a short drive away?

Some of us, especially those on the north end of RP, have been missing Evanston's Whole Foods South store since it closed in March. Binny's is interested in the site. Wonder what the neighbors up there will think of that.

    Binny's Proposed For Former Whole Foods Site
    EVANSTON, IL - A libational replacement for the shuttered Whole Foods store at 1111 Chicago Ave. in Evanston is being considered, as Binny's Beverage Depot is interested in moving into the site. A community meeting has been scheduled by 3rd Ward Alderman Melissa Wynne for next week to discuss the plans.

    Brad and Soter, it's pretty clear from the article in Patch as well as one in Evanston Now, that Binnys is interested in the site so I'm unclear why you would question their interest. The only strings attached seem to be possible objections from the neighbors. There's no way I would drive to Lincolnwood to buy a few bottles of wine or beer, but a Binny's a mile north of me would be great.

    Sandy, yes a CTA bus, #205, runs south on Chicago Ave. from Church St. to the Howard terminal and north from the terminal to Davis.

    Since Mr. Binstein himself turned up for Ald. Wynne's community meeting on Wednesday night, I think it safe to say that Binny's is seriously interested in this site. No surprise, the local liquor dealers, including Vinic, object to the competition.

Lifeline Theatre and Rogers Park

"Lifeline Theatre has been in its current home — a converted Commonwealth Edison substation on Glenwood Avenue, near the Morse Red Line stop — since 1985. Over time, it has become a flagship institution for what’s now called the Glenwood Avenue Arts District.

"Lifeline Theatre has been in its current home — a converted Commonwealth Edison substation on Glenwood Avenue, near the Morse Red Line stop — since 1985. Over time, it has become a flagship institution for what’s now called the Glenwood Avenue Arts District.

For Gregory Altman, 45, a 20-year resident of the neighborhood and owner of Rogers Park-based Chicago Condo Management and Maintenance Co., Lifeline has been just what the name implies. Altman can’t say for sure that the tenants and owners he works with are driven specifically to locate in Rogers Park by the presence of Lifeline or other cultural institutions, which have included, in recent years, the Mayne Stage on Morse and Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre in the No Exit Cafe on Glenwood Avenue.

But, he said, “it certainly creates the positive foot traffic that weaves the fabric of the neighborhood. When we had nothing else happening around Glenwood and Morse, the critical mass of those theaters helped to build that kind of traffic around what was basically, at the time, a bedroom community with vacant storefronts.”

    Living near the limelight: Some Chicagoans find local theaters add more value than expected
    When scouting locations for a new home, buyers and renters generally take into account proximity to schools, shopping and transit networks. But in an area like Chicago that never stops bragging - and with good reason - about its lively performing arts scene (which kicks into high gear with the fall season), there's an increasing awareness that theaters are an added value for residents.

Rogue Fusion

Anyone know what happened with Rogue Fusion? The phone is disconnected and various sites indicate it is permanently closed. What a shame!

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Thanks for that description of chilaquiles, Omar. That doesn't sound appealing to me though I am fond of a good salsa verde. El Garcia has received some good reviews in the Facebook group Rogers Park Neighborhood News. I've been meaning to try it.

Seeking Landscaping / Snow Removal Services in Rogers Park

9-unit Condo Association in East Rogers Park seeking landscaping and snow removal services. We are unhappy with our current service, due to a severe lack in communication. They are affordable and do a decent job, but we'll get invoices that are wildly different each month, and can't get an explanation as to why or what was done. We just want simple service and to be able to get a breakdown of the bill. And to be able to request additional services, when needed (i.e., weeding, planting, etc.) Any suggestions helpful and appreciated. Thanks!

  • JimGram Good neighbor

    I use Tom Otto, a long time business owner in Edgewater/RP who charges me a flat fee of $650 or $65/event with very clear adjustments if snow is over 6 inches. The $650 is for the entire season no limits which works well for most HOAs. Tom Otto 773-315-7389 He also has managed by landscaping on my properties too for years.

Bodyworker and Shoe repair

Anybody know an awesome bodyworker/Licensed Massage Therapist with at least 7 years exp and multi dimensional? I've been searching and I do know about place by jarvis square... Anybody else who will WOW factor me? Namaste!

  • smartypants Be Nice

    BAD experience with the place on Damen just north of Lawrence. He resoled my husband's shoes and in less than a month there was a large hole in one shoe. When I took them back in, with my receipt, I was shocked that the man wouldn't stand by his work. He refused to resolve that shoe for less than another full fee.

  • lisaann mom

    For bodywork, keep it in the neighborhood!

    Try Karen at http://www.rogersparkmassage.com/ .

    She is great. If you want to get to meet her first, she usually does chair massage at the Common Cup on Thursdays form 4-6.

    I highly recommend her.

    It seems that now you want to argue that there was collusion or, at least, a blind eye!

    Get back to us when you have decided your actual position on the issue because, as usual, you make a claim, cannot defend it and then simply make another claim.
