Veteran Chicago reedist Dave Rempis settles into a gripping solo practice with Lattice

Sun 12/17, 2 PM, May Chapel, Rosehill Cemetery, 5800 N. Ravenswood, free, all-ages

    Veteran Chicago reedist Dave Rempis settles into a gripping solo practice with Lattice
    Chicago reedist Dave Rempis is well established as one of the city's finest improvisers, a player who can adjust and adapt to fluid, unexpected musical situations with stunning alacrity, sensitivity, and ingenuity. But his ability to live in the moment doesn't mean he's not a thinker and a planner.

  • "He’s one of the loudest saxophonists I’ve ever heard." Yeah I might have to pass on this one.

    Great addition to the area - that building has has been empty for years. Starbucks or what ever it might have been- can't keep everyone happy.

    We have never had crime similar to this on our block. A sign of the times, I guess.

  • Yes we have; two, in fact, within the last ten years.

  • Rickover Naval Academy High School reviewed by a teacher

    I have taught at this school for over six years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It also seems to me that 90% of the drama spoken about in some reviewers' comments happens very infrequently. As it is with Yelp Reviews, so it is here: individuals are more likely to bemoan a perceived issue, rather than praise something they enjoyed.

    Preservation unlikely for Edgewater's threatened Woodruff Arcade
    Despite a push by local preservationists to save Edgewater's Woodruff Arcade building, the 1923 structure at 6361 N. Broadway Street will likely be demolished for a new mixed-use development. 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman believes its replacement-a seven-story, 58-unit apartment building with ground floor retail-is too far along in the redevelopment process for the City of Chicago to consider pursuing a protected landmark designation.

Love It While You Can: Little Hope Left For The Woodruff Arcade Building

But as the new comes in, the old goes out, and that means the Woodruff Arcade Building (6361 North Broadway) is getting the old heave-ho.

    Love It While You Can: Little Hope Left For The Woodruff Arcade Building
    Even though it's not downtown, or downtown-adjacent, Edgewater is shaping up to be one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods. New shops and infrastructure are going in, and it's even made a recent appearance on HGTV's House Hunters program. But as the new comes in, the old goes out, and that means the Woodruff Arcade Building (6361 North [...]

    If the bldg. can't be saved, can the original two-story arcade be either moved or replicated (as was the original Stock Exchange trading floor was in the rear of the Art Institute) or imitated (in a contemporary way with modern materials) on the lower two stories as an homage? And can the stained-glass atrium skylight be saved and incorporated into the building's top floor (presumably a party room or indoor pool)? The businesses located in the Arcade have relocated.
