Furniture refinisher

Does anyone know or can recommend a furniture refinisher who will work on the project on site? I've contacted a couple of the commercial establishments, and after getting quotes thought I'd try Plan B.

    I can't see how you figured that out from this info. Enlighten, pls.

  • Andrew Linc Sq Lifer

    thanks for the snide comment, smarty-pants. there is no way you can glean from this link how much of the company is privately -held. unless of course, you have special liberal powers.

    don't bother answering...just learn to be respectful of opposing views. it'll make you a better "progressive".

Wood statues stolen from Roscoe Village

Hello neighbors,

I had 3 painted wood carvings stolen from in front of my house near Cornelia and Damen in Roscoe Village last night. They were chained securely, but someone cut the chain or unscrewed the eye locking them. If anyone happened to see anything, or sees some wood carvings lying around somewhere, please contact me. They are about 3 feet, 4 feel, and 6.5 feet tall.

I have reported this to the police, but am posting just in case someone might have seen something suspicious. Like a pick up truck riding down the street with a totem pole. I have photos if anyone has questions.

Thank you,
bill carroll

New restaurant?

Anyone know what’s going in to the former Dive Bar space on Halsted just south of Cornelia? Looks like they’re painting the outside in preparation for something.

  • Do we need another restaurant in the neighborhood.

  • I'm curious too, that was supposed to be the reopening of mEAT, but those signs have been down for over a year now. And, yes, we certainly need as much restaurant choice in this neighborhood as possilbe, anything is better than another closed building.

  • Li, if you think you know what the neighborhood needs, by all means....

    go ahead and take the risk and open up your own business.

    or, sit on the sidelines and take e-potshots at those who have the courage, conviction, stamina and work ethic to try.

'Burnham's Dream: The White City' shows it's hard to make a musical from dancing architects

Where: Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave.

    'Burnham's Dream: The White City' shows it's hard to make a musical from dancing architects
    Have you craved the opportunity to see a musical about dead Chicago architects? Did you always hope to catch Daniel Burnham and John Root doing a soft-shoe together? When staring, say, at the outside of the Auditorium building, have you thought of Louis Sullivan and wondered if, one day, you might see him warble a creepy ballad from the stage of the theater?
