    The produce can be hit or miss at Aldi but great deals to be had.

  • Part of the remodel involves making the aisles wider. Thank goodness, because when they Place pallets stocked with seasonal items in the middle of the Isles now, it's barely wide enough on either side to get a cart past them.

Copper Cornice Comeback

Newly constructed copper cornice meets the 109 year old cornice

    Copper Cornice Comeback
    The Stewart School Lofts are nearing completion as new residents move into the unique floorplans to enjoy amenities like a gorgeous rooftop deck with beautiful views of the city. Outside, Morningside Development has been hard at work with tuckpointing, installing a new roof and repairing the copper cornice that was sagging in sections and in danger of falling completely off.

  • Uptown does have a lot of cheap apartments.

  • I think they've done a great job. And the location is perfect. Granted, there are probably a tiny handful of 'activists' who'd rather see tents and Helen murals here. Fantastic use of this great building I think!

Excessive Heat Warning Today Through Monday Night

It's gonna be crazy hot and humid through Monday night, with little relief after the sun sets. WGN says that "Conditions similar to the 1995 deadly heat wave could evolve." This is serious stuff. So we urge you to not only be careful for yourself, but for your pets and most vulnerable neighbors.

    Wingstop Coming To Former Payless Space At Broadway & Wilson

  • This post is about another business coming into Uptown which adds to a wide diversity of options for people to stay in the neighborhood when they eat, shop, and play. That's worth celebrating.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    It should be the biggest thing since Popeyes closed...bigger than Harold's since they also closed down.

    Or the Chicken Place on Clark that lasted less than a year, or the Jamaican Jerk chicken that also closed after getting their windows shot out then robbed 2 days later.

    Or Chester's that lasted a matter of months a block away.

    Hopes and prayers for the chicken joints of Uptown?
