    Neighborhood guide: What to eat, drink and do in Rogers Park
    Rogers Park is both Chicago's northernmost point and one of its most diverse neighborhoods. The lakefront community extends from Devon Avenue to Howard Street and features both historic homes and a collection of vibrant murals.

    Those Pisco Sours look lovely. Think that's what I'm going to try the next time I'm at our best neighborhood bar, Rogers Park Social.

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    Thanking author Samantha Nelson for contacting the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce for small business suggestions and taking a walking tour of Rogers Park with me as research for this article ... way back on August 26, 2017.

    I also enjoyed Alderman Joe Moore's comment on the article, "More good coverage of Rogers Park and our great businesses." On this, the Alderman and I agree.

    Excellent article, Samantha!

  • wendy carson community activist,and Ilove to bake

    Love this guide of where to go in rogers park and I intend on using it

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Strange. You'd think if someone actually took the author on a tour of the neighborhood, she would have acknowledged it in her article.

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    There are many works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen. This is not uncommon.

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    Just found that Samantha thanked the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce yesterday on twitter. 7:14 am!

    @Bill Morton - You wrote: "There are many works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen. This is not uncommon."

    Are you trying to tell us that your organization is working, without fanfare, to promote the neighborhood projects or are you lamenting the fact that you, like Alderman Moore, have to engage in self-promotion to tell people that you are involved? Just curious.

  • Do you like and appreciate the lakefront in Rogers Park? Have any idea where it came from? We wouldn't have a lakefront if it weren't for the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce!

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    OK. That's funny, Omar!

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    "Michael Archangel", I'm proud to be a part of building our community. I'm thankful for so many opportunities to engage our residents, businesses and organizations.

    It's just a fact, "There are many works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen. This is not uncommon."

    The results are far more rewarding than the acknowledgement.

  • Live From Rogers Park

    The chamber has a serious credibility issue. Prominent Rogers Park businesses that currently are listed as chamber members on the chamber's website confirm that the listings are incorrect. The businesses are not subscription members of the chamber nor do they intend to become members.

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    Which website do you believe is ours? Our official site is www.RogersPark.cc .

    If there is an inaccuracy with our membership roster, we need to know where, so we can fix it.

    "serious credibility issue" is inaccurate.

    "There are many works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen."

    Name one.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Bill Morton - Happy to read that you believe the results to be more rewarding than the acknowledgements. It seems that your statement does fly in the face of a spate of recent posts on EveryBlock. Like the alderman, you have discovered that self-promotion is one of those necessary evils in politics.

  • Rob

    Bill - seeing as you jumped at the opportunity to claim how involved you were in making this article happen, it certainly doesn't count as something you've supported that we don't know about.

    So again- name one.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    That is if you really believe the claim that Bill was involved in making that article happen, Rob. Would he really take a reporter to RP Social? We know his history there.

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    Rob and Helen, I have already addressed these questions, earlier in this thread.

    Samantha Nelson, the author of the article "Neighborhood guide: What to eat, drink and do in Rogers Park",‏ said "Thanks @RogersParkCoC for all the help putting together this piece":

  • Bill Morton President, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce

    More important than Samantha's thank you for assisting her with our small business suggestions and taking a walking tour of Rogers Park as research for this article, is this message from one of her readers:

    "Replying to @samanthanelson1 @RogersParkCoC
    Ayyyy my old neighborhood! Heartland Cafe is right across the street from the apartment complex I lived in until I was 16".

    Bringing back a positive memory of one of our local businesses, is key to attracting more visitors, and this stimulates our local economy.

    No you haven't Bill. If there are indeed "manhy works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen" then why can't you come up with an example of at least one?

    Thank you, again to Samantha Nelson for writing the article, "Neighborhood guide: What to eat, drink and do in Rogers Park", which sparked the Rogers Park themed Chicago RedEye cover, citywide!

  • Live From Rogers Park

    It is interesting that the senior citizen from Edgewater, Wazzy, and Margaret, the lady friend of the Uptown artist with a peacock, gave thumbs downs to Rob's comment that exposes Bill's fraudulent comment. Bill never responded to defend his false claims.

  • Score:

    Bill Morton: 1
    Helen, Rob and Live: 0

    Next round! :)

    Remember to pick your battles carefully.

  • Rob

    Omar - I'm still waiting for Bill to name at least one of the works around the neighborhood that the chamber supports and had a role in making happen that I don't know about.

  • This comment has been removed by EveryBlock staff.
  • sorry, Rob. No do overs or post-play. It was a fair fight and you lost!

  • Live From Rogers Park

    The Rogers Park chamber supported and created a Puppy Costume Parade, the Motorboat Charity Event and many Cosplay-style Disco After Dark funk parties. They were spectacular happenings.
