Report: Culver's to Open 2nd Chicago Location

 The Portage Park location will be located in the 4900 block of West Irving Park Road, according to the company’s website.

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

The Bronzeville location, which is set to open on Jan. 23, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday to celebrate its opening day. That store will be located at 3356 South King Drive, and will feature the company’s signature assortment of butter burgers, frozen custard, and concrete mixers. 

    Report: Culver's to Open 2nd Chicago Location
    Chicago will get its first new Culver's in over a decade next week, but it will reportedly take less than a week for a second location to open its doors. According to Eater Chicago, a second location in Portage Park is scheduled to open on Jan.

A man stepped in front of my car at Henderson & LeClaire, just as I started to pull out into the intersection. He pretended to be hit, and then did his best LeBron James flop onto the pavement. WAY overacting and obviously trying to scare me into thinking I'd done something wrong. I stopped my car and got out. He was a middle aged man, and was talking (or pretending to) on his phone in a slavic language. I asked him what he wanted to do, and he kept trying to pretend I hit him. After about 5 minutes, he said "you can go" and then finally said "give me $50 and I'll forget about it." I didn't give him anything and drove away. A**HOLE!!!!!!

affordable snow removal service/person?

hello neighbors!
We are a new business at the corner of Avondale and Pulaski and we are looking for a more affordable option for our snow removal. We're interested in a professional service for heavier snow falls (over one inch) and/or a local person who could just (perhaps with a snowblower?) take care of our sidewalks during light snowfalls. We've gotten lucky so far this year but there is still (purportedly) a lot of winter days left!

Thanks!

Now, more than ever, we need a new high school at the Read Dunning site. Bridge, Canty, Dever and Smyser are anchoring this part of the NW Side and are a large part of Dunning making this list. Give these parents a reason to stay in Dunning, give them a new modern high school, it's long overdue. The land at Irving and Oak Park is plentiful and has been sitting idle for decades. This should be an easy decision.

    @Paul. They seem to have a better handle on technology than any other real estate company. It's their Ace card really. I rely on their property search site for some RE investment purposes because it contains almost as much useful info as the MLS.

  • Thomas R Resident of Schorsch Village

    I was surprised by the Wrigleyville and Andersonville median prices, they seemed low. Anyone who lives on the North Side knows those areas are more expensive. Those areas are saturated with condos. It depends on how they get their samplings for the median home prices. My experience with Redfin is that their home estimator is usually higher than Zillow or Realtor.com. Keep in mind that the median prices include homes that flippers buy which are of course lower than other sold, turn-key properties.

  • I believe if the police or fire department salaries were cut in half today, majority of the cops and firemen would stay on the job regardless. If they were to leave, I believe they could be replaced with equally as capable people rather quickly. I just believe their pay and benefits, including their pensions have gotten out of hand. If the unions do not want to agree to these reductions then I think a municipal bankruptcy would help take care of things.

It's nearly physically impossible to be coherent with the hours they put in and these people are behind the wheel of very powerful autos and are armed to the teeth.

  • Too long to post nuances of situation but basically it involved a peculiar chronic ear infection, a lump under his ear, and an ear polyp but blood work and X-rays showed a healthy cat. Ultimately, it was carcinoma presenting itself in an obscure way (took him to Buffalo Grove specialty clinic for ct scan, and Dr. India did not think this was a good candidate for surgery and we sadly lost our cat in Nov. 2nd). Dr. Baehr never shrugged her shoulders or gave up.

    Giving credit or blame to a president for the state of the economy after one year is not right.

    If Trump's administration is able to sustain key economic factors (DJIA is not one of them) than we can begin to give him credit. But, until next year's State of the Union, we will have to see. The DJIA is an economic factor mainly for the upper crust including CEO's of the companies measured via the DJIA. I understand that retirement plans are effected by the DJIA, but that, like the economy is cyclical and factored into your lifetime average including the lean years when you shift your money largely to interest bearing investments.A select few are lucky enough or knowledgeable enough to play the market perfectly. (aka insiders and CEO's)

    Job creation, median income numbers, unemployment rates and interest rates are what effect the commoners like you and me not the DJIA. Giving Obama credit for that yesterday or to Trump today is a red herring.

    Now I will say that, in comparing economic numbers during the Reagan years and the Obama years, the recovery was considerably more sluggish under Obama. Both men inherited a catastrophic economy. While the economy has its own engine, the president's policies can assist in the trend (up or down). The economy has and always will run in cycles.

    Alley Cat Allies is a reputable organization that has been around for quite some time. Perhaps they are referring to the TNR cats as having a lifespan of 7 years. Surely they know that a strictly indoor pet cat receiving proper nutrition, veterinary care, etc., can and often does live almost 3 times that long. One of my cats was 19 years and 9 months old with medical issues that were well maintained over a long period of time. A friend had a kitty that was 26 years old.

There's a garfield-looking cat that has been coming by my house for about 8 years or so now (Cullom and Long area.) She likes hanging out in my yard during the day. I've always been reluctant to bring her inside because I believe she's someone's cat. (Well fed, well groomed, when it's cold or wet she doesn't show up etc.)

She stopped coming around right after the time that the trapper was catching cats so I figured her owners were keeping her indoors (good.) She's now returned, but looking a bit skinny--she was always very plump. It's odd for cats to lose weight that quickly unless there is a health problem--I tried to feed her, but she's not really interested.

I'm thinking about bringing her inside and possibly to the vet. But before I do that, I wanted to see if anyone knows if she's got an owner in the neighborhood. I tried to put a break-away collar on her that asked for her owner to call me, but she's not having any of that. I have not yet had her checked for a microchip and she is not ear-tipped.

    Yes, Sheri is wonderful. She helped me with a pregnant cat that showed up at my back door one day. She filled me in on what I needed to know, took the kittens pictures when they were ready to be adopted and posted them on her site. She started her own rescue about a year or so ago.

    I got new socks but no underwear. I guess this pair can last me til next year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  • well, they ended up taking it back to target, they could not find the receipt, and even though they asked to do an even exchange and just get a different size target gave them 1/2 off credit because of no receipt (which may or may not have been the last sale price) and got me another pair.

Neighbor got robbed at gun point in alley.

A male African American robbed one of the neighbors at gun point by Addison and Long on Friday, December 15th around 7:30pm as he was in his garage. I saw the suspect running from the alley in all black crossing Addison going southbound and reported it to the police. The male was about 6ft tall, skinny build, really dark skinned, and in his early 20's. Not sure if the suspect was with others or alone.

Neighbors in the area have said there has been a string of attacks. Please be aware of your surroundings.

Spent 1/3 of my life in many different episcopal churches baptist churches lutheran churches and catholic churches and never once did any make me feel close to changing my life. Hence i asked what demonination this church was yet i was just downvoted for asking. Or maybe cuz i mentioned i was working? As if i want to be working all day christmas eve. Or maybe because i asked of they had midnight mass?
