‘SMILF’ Billboard Taken Down In Beverly

The billboard on 103rd and Western in the Beverly neighborhood depicted a young mother from Boston holding a young child and, in big bold letters, the name of the show:  SMILF.  Underneath that were the words: single, smart, Southie.

The alderman said half-kiddingly “If somebody wants to rent a billboard and 10318 S. Western, please give them a call.”

Not Your Dad's Western Ave.: Trendy Bars, Shops Bring New Flavor To Beverly

It's not uncommon to have to wait for a table on weekends at Horse Thief Hollow. Caroline Connors, the executive director of the Morgan Park Beverly Hills Business Association, credited the brewpub that debuted in 2013 at 10426 S. Western Ave. for setting a changed tone along the corridor.

The shop at 10215 S. Western Ave. opened April 25 and takes its name by combining the first names of owners Mary Ryan and Lauren Majka. The Beverly and Morgan Park residents graduated from the cosmetology school in 2011.

The new and used bookstore has been in the Beverly neighborhood since 1989 and more than doubled its footprint by moving July 1 to 10324 S. Western Ave. Owner Keith Lewis also opted to keep his previous store around the corner at 2419 W. 103rd St.

Many neighborhood residents bemoaned the loss of Koda Bistro in July 2013, but The Quilter's Trunk has found success converting the white table cloth restaurant at 10352 S. Western Ave. to a sanctuary for sewing enthusiasts.

Keegan's Pub had practically been an institution at 10618 S. Western Ave. before owner Bernard Callaghan decided to tear apart the bar known for serving perfect pints of Guinness. He poured $750,000 into the business he'd previously owned for 25 years.

The former Chesterfield Federal Savings and Loan at 10801 S. Western Ave. in Morgan Park sat vacant for six years before a massive renovation started this summer. The building is being redesigned as a medical office building.

Bridgeport and Beverly are often looked upon as Chicago's Irish twins. It's perhaps this familiarity that led Mike Pilkington, the owner of Bridgeport Coffee Co. to open a shop at 9135 S. Western Ave. on Dec. 14, 2015, replacing Hardboiled Coffee Co.

Not all the development on Western Avenue has worked out well for Beverly. Potbelly Sandwich Shop will soon move from the southeast corner of 95th Street and Western Avenue across the street to a new storefront in Evergreen Plaza.

The owners of Ain't She Sweet Cafe built their brand in Bronzeville by serving Caribbean jerk chicken wraps and fresh sandwiches. The mother-and-daughter team of Margo and Ayisha Strotter opened their second location March 6 at 9920 S. Western Ave.

Their bright, airy salon replaces Optimo Hat Co., which had occupied the storefront for 25 years before moving its retail operation Downtown. Optimo's hats are still made in Beverly, but production moved from the combined storefront to a renovated firehouse at 1700 W. 95th St. last year.

The latest addition to Western Avenue hasn't even had its official grand opening yet. Owner Jack Kelly quietly opened the bar Sept. 12 at 10910 S. Western Ave., replacing Mrs. O'Leary's Dubliner.

The brewery that pairs craft its beer with Neapolitan-style pizzas opened July 21 at 10934 S. Western Ave. Owner John Brand walked away from his career in the futures market March 9, 2016, to buy O'Brien's Pub.

Chef A.J. Castillo hopes to soon have the necessary permits to begin construction on Americanos, a restaurant selling tacos and tortas. Castillo's first restaurant will replace Leona's at 11060 S. Western Ave. in Morgan Park.

The Beverly Woods served customers for 63 years at 11532 S. Western Ave. before owner Bill McGann decided to close the banquet hall, restaurant and bar Sunday.

Before owner Dan Cullinan closed Cullinan's Stadium Club Aug. 1 at 11610 S. Western Ave., customers raised $14,215 via GoFundMe to help pay his back taxes. The bill was settled Dec. 29, but the fundraiser could not offset the drop in business over the summer months.

The menu at Global Kitchen in Morgan Park is as eclectic as the flags that fly outside the restaurant at 11722 S. Western Ave. Owner Essy Glenn of Beverly serves American favorites like pork chops and chicken wings alongside Asian cuisine, French delicacies and more.

This unassuming bar at 11848 S. Western Ave. in Morgan Park had been plagued with problems for more than a year before it closed following a police raid Aug. 5, 2016. Several days after the raid, an undercover police officer detailed multiple drug buys at Bar 118.

    Not Your Dad's Western Ave.: Trendy Bars, Shops Bring New Flavor To Beverly
    BEVERLY - The stretch of Western Avenue that runs from 91st Street in Beverly to 119th Street in Morgan Park has long been synonymous with bars painted Kelly green and adorned in shamrocks. These dimly-lit Irish pubs have served bottles upon bottles of light beer for decades.
