    It's great to have facts, not spin. Sorry a kid got shot. It's great the info was confirmed in real time. When is the feauxrage event?

  • Rob

    Funny how certain folks that made a big political stink about caring about the kid that was shot the same day as Cynthia Trevillion was murdered have been completely silent about this kids shooting.

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Follow Me on Friday to the official grand opening of one of the hottest, most talked about new restaurants in Rogers Park–TJam Kitchen at 1418 W. Howard (just west of Sheridan). TJam is usually a breakfast and lunch spot, open Tuesday through Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but the owners, Tony Jamaica and his wife, Lidoska Guietti, will be keeping their doors open late this Friday to accommodate our Follow Me on Friday crowd! Join your neighbors and me this Friday, January 12th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and sample some of Tony and Lido’s delicious wares, including avocado crostini, fried tofu and their surprise soup of the day. Sip a complimentary glass of beer, wine or soft drink and enjoy live music from a “Gypsy Kings-style” guitarist. Tony is incredibly friendly and has a true passion for food. He personally waits on the tables and carefully explains every dish on the menu before he goes back to the kitchen to prepare the meal. Lido is a wonderful artist whose work graces the walls throughout the restaurant. She is also the mastermind behind the delicious apple cake. Tony makes all his food fresh daily and combines his family-owned sensibilities with European, North American and South American influences. Tony and Lido are excited about showcasing their new restaurant to the Rogers Park community. As Tony says, “We are jamming with our taste buds, we keep it simple, basic and fresh.” Please join me in welcoming Tony and Lido to Rogers Park! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends.

    The simple truth is that 1323 W. Morse, The Farcroft, The Mayne Stage, the Emil Bach House, the Mayne Annex Apartments and many other remodeled or restored locations in Rogers Park never wouldn't be here had the teaching assistant from Northwestern become or any of the other mini-challengers become our Alderman. The teaching assistant's PR sidekick, the Steve Bannon look-alike, would have helped set disastrous policies in place and destroyed years of continuous improvement and progress. The anti-development, anti-commerce, anti-automobile, anti-improvement, anti-City Council minority that always loses the vote would fight to preserve the charm of decrepitude and nostalgia. Face the facts. Even the Buddhist monks grabbed the cash and fled that decaying "Mansion" that was so valued by the faux progressives who still want everyone to ride bicycles in Rogers Park. If they were in control we'd be back in horse and buggy days in a flash.

That woman who has all those chickens on Touh...

That woman who has all those chickens on Touhy near Wolcott has the chickens outside in their coops with no heater. I don’t know how much cold ordinary chickens are able to withstand, but these chickens have been outside, continuously, in temps that have been in single digits and sometimes below zero for many days. They are inside coops in the yard and neighboring lot but part of them have no solid wall. Just chicken wire. The chickens are in the coops, huddled together. Are feathers enough to keep birds sufficiently warm at these temps, day in and day out? I called City services, and after getting bounced around a while, the best I could do was to report my concerns to have an animal welfare inspector go out there. Does anyone reading know anything about chickens...what conditions they require to live and stay health?

    The clichés regarding artists are off the charts ridiculous. One guy lobs off his ear in the 19th century and some whack job in the 21st century is still talking about it.
    I know plenty of artists and even more non-artists. We are no different on the whole when it comes to being "sensitive", which actually means nothing.

    If anything I've found a lot of artists are better at dealing with reality since artists tend to be more observant of life in general, more aware, have an outlet for there inner self.

    Historically the artists with the most esoteric and quirky personal lives are the ones who get written about.

    Anyone who throws around clichés about artists or others are just exposing their ignorance and lack of connection to those they judge.

    I find it all silly and inconsequential.

    This was what it was like to live in Chicago in 2017
    There was a shooting in my neighborhood, Rogers Park, in October. There were probably shootings in every neighborhood sometime this year, but this one attracted extra notice because the victim, Cynthia Trevillion, was a teacher at the local Waldorf School-she was on her way out to a Friday-night dinner with her husband and was unlucky enough to get caught in gang-related cross fire.

Location for libations: Some might dub Bruno’s Lounge (6562 N. Sheridan Road) a dive bar. Others would call it an institution.

In 2014, they dreamed up Rogers Park Social (6922 N. Glenwood Ave.), a friendly neighborhood tavern where anyone and everyone is welcome — including canines.

Culture vulture: Common, uncommon and hard-to-find — these are the types of used books the owners say you’ll stumble upon at the Armadillo’s Pillow (6753 N. Sheridan Road).

Making the grade: New Field Primary School (1707 W. Morse Ave.), GreatSchools rating 5 out of 10.

Joyce Kilmer Elementary School (6700 N. Greenview Ave.) GreatSchools rating 4 out of 10.

Sullivan High School (6631 N. Bosworth Ave.), GreatSchools rating 1 out of 10.

The Kung Fu Academy of Chicago (6751 N. Sheridan Road) is another option, with three adult classes per week for $125 per month and two children’s sessions per week for $95 a month. Various specials may apply.

Sacred Heart Schools (6250 N. Sheridan Road), independent and therefore not rated.

Health hubs: Anytime Fitness (1346 W. Devon Ave.) is open to members 24/7 and offers conventional gym fixtures, such as cardio machines, weights and personal training. Memberships start at $39.95 a month.

    Rent in this Chicago neighborhood, and enjoy beach, bars, books without going broke
    Life, they say, is cooler by the lake. And in Chicago's northernmost neighborhood of Rogers Park, lakeside living comes with a more palatable price tag than in Lincoln Park or the Gold Coast. A drive north on Sheridan Road leads into the neighborhood, affectionately known by many as "RoPo."

    RoPa is a bad idea...it's just glomming on to the tail-end a trend, a fad that is fading.
    Rogers Park works.

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Celebrate the holiday season and Follow Me on Friday to the Heartland Cafe Bar, 7006 N. Glenwood this Friday, December 15th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. I will be joining the Rogers Park Business Alliance (RPBA) in a “symbolic ribbon cutting” of the latest artistic additions to the Mile of Murals Project. Check out the newly renovated and historic Heartland Cafe Bar located on Glenwood just north of Lunt, enjoy some complimentary food and drinks, and meet the mural artists to learn about their process and inspiration. Formerly known as the Red Line Tap, the Heartland Cafe Bar combines the cutting-edge live entertainment experience of the Red Line Tap with the delicious wholesome food of the Heartland Cafe, located just around the corner. The remodeled space reflects what the Heartland name represents–a welcoming place for gathering, drinking and dining and a venue to experience the full range of music and performance art. The Heartland Cafe Bar offers an array of Chicago-focused brews and craft spirits and a dining experience that includes the full Heartland Café menu. The bar will be unveiling their new space for this Mile of Murals special occasion. At around 6:00 p.m. we’ll “cut the ribbon” on the two latest additions to the Mile of Murals Project. RPBA launched the Mile of Murals project in 2007 as an effort to promote the Glenwood Avenue Arts District. When completed, the project will showcase 19 large-scale murals on ten block-long walls, seven viaduct walls and two overpasses painted by local, national and international mural artists. Due to the winter weather and the distance between each mural, Friday’s ribbon cutting will be symbolic in that it will not take place at the murals themselves. Instead, slides of the finished murals will be shown inside the Heartland Cafe Bar. The featured murals for this event include “Resilience,” located on the north side of the Pratt Boulevard CTA viaduct, and “Be Happy,” located on the southeast corner of Glenwood and Estes. Resilience, painted by artist Gretchen Hasse with the assistance of artists Jason Schroeder, Dalia Carrillo and Cesar Moyorido, is a mural bursting with images showcasing the perseverance of the human spirit. Gretchen says she chose the word “Resilience” because “it speaks to the strength of the Rogers Park community, where I have been fortunate to locate much of my own art practice. Rogers Park is vital and diverse, and it’s still a place where strangers talk to each other.” Be Happy is a collaboration between local artists from the Roman Susan Art Foundation and Rogers Park resident, businessman and collage artist Tae “Thomas” Kong, owner of Kim’s Corner Foods. The mural was designed by Mr. Kong and painted by artists Kristin Abhalter, Steven Husby, Dan Miller, Cole Pierce, Kit Rosenberg, Ruby T and Alice Tippit, with assistance from Max Guy, Maika Saworski and Nathan Smith from the Roman Susan Art Foundation. According to the foundation, “‘Be Happy’ is an instructional phrase found throughout the artwork. This message embodies the artist Tae Kong’s personal work ethic — an active, creative engagement with daily life. Thomas Kong is one of the most prolific and generous artists in Rogers Park, and we are very happy to have worked with him to bring this artwork to life.” Please join me for some holiday cheer as we support a long-established neighborhood business and welcome two new artistic murals to Rogers Park! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Please join me as I head to Sheridan Road after work on Friday to sample some gooey, decadent macaroni and cheese at a fun recent addition to the Rogers Park restaurant scene. Follow Me on Friday to Midnight Mac & Cheeserie, 6981 N. Sheridan (at Lunt) this Friday, December 1st, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Join me in trying some of the delicious and creative ways Midnight Mac & Cheeserie prepares what is America’s favorite comfort food. To compliment the Mac and Cheese, I will be offering up free beverages, including beer, wine or soft drinks. Owner Antony Van Zyl founded Midnight Mac & Cheeserie as a carryout and delivery business only, offering a variety of mac and cheese options. But on opening day, which saw a line around the corner and a complete sellout of every single noodle, Antony realized he had discovered a huge untapped market–a hankering for the ultimate gooey comfort food. Antony decided to go for broke and transformed the carryout and delivery business into a traditional sit-down restaurant, located in the site that previously housed the Growling Rabbit. As the name indicates, Midnight Mac & Cheeserie offers all variations of America’s favorite comfort food. Meals start at $7.50 for a “Baby Mac” (one pound) and $9.50 for a “Mama Mac” (two and a half pounds). You start with a base of elbow noodles and cheddar cheese and customize from there with additional toppings, including a choice of eight different types of cheeses, nine veggie options, nine protein choices. You can then add six other customized options, including an extra buttery crumb topping, a Cayenne pepper and red pepper flake topping, and truffle oil. Antony suggests several Mac & Cheese combos, such as “Antonia’s Decadent Lobster Dish,” which brings together Gruyere cheese and lobster–or Sam’s Sizzling Steak, a spicy recipe that blends pepper jack with Sriracha steak and ​jalapeños. In short, Midnight Mac & Cheeserie offers decadence in a bowl! Antony welcomes customers to dine in from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Deliveries are available until 2:00 a.m. through GrubHub or Uber Eats. After sampling some of the delicious mac and cheese combos Friday night, make sure to order some mac and cheese your way to dine in or take home with you. In other words, “Let’s Get Cheesie!” Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.

    @NoJoe NoMoore - Let me see, you claim my comments are "perverse babbling" but you are the one who constantly trips over your own arguments and clearly contradicted yourself. Sorry "NoJoe" but you are the one who makes claims without evidence and cannot keep focus on the point.

    I also noticed you did not clarify your comments after I posed those questions to you. Clearly, you shifted from one accusation to another accusation and, in the process, attempted to conflate two unrelated issues. Again, for your benefit, are the laws that the legislators make insufficient or is the criminal justice system insufficient?

    You have the name calling down I see...how about showing some actual substance to your claims. That would be a novel approach!

    Speaking of babbling, NoJoe, that last comment of yours takes the prize.
