    I guess Wazzy thinks that photo was taken at El Famous, which just shows you what he knows about Mexican food. It's a Korean dish from a restaurant in the loop--one of the other restaurants featured in the article. But, man, the tacos in the photo from El Famous look mighty tasty.

    $1.50 tacos at El Famous Burrito was featured on the 5th day of this "Chicago's best cheap eats: 30 days of lunch deals, happy hour specials and more". What I really enjoyed about the article, is that our friend (and Rogers Park resident) Chicago Tribune Food Writer, Bill Daley wrote it.

    We have seen Bill Daley all over the country, but in our neighborhood covering Fung's Chinese Mandarin Cuisine, Heartland Cafe, Rogue Fusion .. and he even stopped by one of our BBQ event fundraisers, at our old Chamber office (7231 N Sheridan Rd)!

    "Sixty cents savings may not seem like much, but it can add up enough to buy four tacos instead of three — at least if you go to El Famous Burrito, a Rogers Park storefront restaurant, on Sundays and Tuesdays. That’s when the $2.10 tacos are $1.50 each. Choose from steak, chicken, pork, ground beef or vegetarian on a corn or flour tortilla. At this price point, go ahead and experiment with different fillings. I tried three: the chicken, the pork and the steak. The chicken and the steak, which had a slightly peppery kick, were topped with shredded lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese. They were good, but the clear standout for me was the pork al pastor. No lettuce or tomato or cheese here, just savory slow-cooked nuggets of meat mixed with diced onion and topped with chopped cilantro. The pork taco was so good that it settled the inner debate on whether to get that fourth taco or not: I did just that, ordering another al pastor. This Rogers Park location is one of 12 El Famous Burrito restaurants in the Chicago area; not all locations offer this deal or this price. (In Mount Prospect, for example, the tacos are $1.25 on Tuesdays.)"

Cozy up to the kiln and join me for some hot chocolate and pastries as I head to the Glenwood Avenue Arts District to welcome the newest addition to the Rogers Park arts scene. Follow Me on Friday to Nodd Pottery, 7063 N. Glenwood, this Friday, November 10th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. After years of directing at other art studios and teaching preschool and kindergarten, Nodd Pottery founder, Sarah Ortlieb (see photo on below), decided that pottery was her true calling. Nodd Pottery is a non-profit organization that provides affordable and accessible art education for our community and its youth. Nodd Pottery offers a regular beginners pottery class called Learning to Center every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and an after-school enrichment program, “Art About You,” for children between the ages of six and 17. Nodd Pottery’s doors are open Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. for “Community Open Studio,” during which members of the community can walk in and exercise their own creativity with technical guidance and assistance. Nodd Pottery also offers private lessons, community workshops and kiln rental space for local artists. Sarah works with artists of all ages and capacities, including mentally disabled artists for whom she provides commissions that they can use to generate personal income. “I believe strongly in equal opportunity education as well as the importance of the arts in the life-long development of the individual,” says Sarah. “I aim to help others learn the communication skills they need, whether verbal or otherwise, to define and achieve success and happiness in their lives.” Enjoy some hot chocolate, marshmallows and pastries on a chilly late autumn day and check out Sarah’s studio where you’ll find a wide assortment of pottery. Get an early start on your holiday shopping at Nodd Pottery! 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.

Midnight 10/4/17: Several shots fired in the 1800 block of Touhy alley between Estes and Touhy. 3-5 followed by 5-6 about ten minuets later. Police in alley after second incident seemed about as concerned as someone delivering a Pizza. I’ve lived in Rogers Park for 26 years. That might not continue for much longer.

    Maybe Everyblock should cut the Alderman's auto-posting to this site, if there is confusion about who the information or comments are actually coming from.

    If what Helen stated is truly a fact, "A resident posted it on the alderman's FB page and it shows up here, looking as though the alderman posted it", then Everyblock cutting the Alderman's data feed, would actually be a favor to Joe Moore.

    Media Mentions, should actually be media mentions.
