Drivers Chucking Objects At Your Car After You Honk At Them For Safety Reasons

Has anyone else experienced this? Ever since I moved here from Detroit, I started experiencing this...me honking at a person, because they are about to hit me, and them instantly getting pissed, when it's very obvious I was not in the wrong and just saying , "hey I'm here I don't think you see me! Ive had multiple people do this, almost get out of their car, one did once, screamed at me and threaten to beat me up...the last...

Has anyone else experienced this? Ever since I moved here from Detroit, I started experiencing this...me honking at a person, because they are about to hit me, and them instantly getting pissed, when it's very obvious I was not in the wrong and just saying , "hey I'm here I don't think you see me! Ive had multiple people do this, almost get out of their car, one did once, screamed at me and threaten to beat me up...the last two people have just gotten in front of me anyways, then slowed down or pulled over...opened their window up and throw some hard object at my car.

It is very dumb, dangerous, and traumatizing.

I can't help but wonder ever what the other person is thinking.... especially since they usually have another person in the car watching them throw a temper tantrum baicslly...when they were in the wrong...

Neighborly Litigation (Chadha v. NPES)

Many on this forum talk about litigating, be it for some unneighborly thing or other. Well, here is your chance to read the behind the scenes workings of the Chicago Way in its entirety (link below - get some popcorn and settle in) and VOTE.

This is the culmination of 7 years of attorney fees and a waste of our taxpayer-funded court's time/resources, in my opinion, of course.

Breakroom / Finches / Ravinia Brewing

Does anyone know when Ravinia Brewing will open? That carcass of a store front is just sitting there.

  • I sent Ravinia a message and this is the response I got:
    I wish I had a better answer for you, but unfortunately there are a variety of issues to work through at the Montrose spot that continue to put timing and planning up in the air. It is a wonderful spot and a wonderful neighborhood which we are really hoping to make work - but some thing are simply out of our control. Keep checking back with us and hopefully we'll know more soon!

  • Eric Pepeson NW-side deplorable, based-stickman, commie-crusher

    That's too bad, ya' know I always wanted to open up a nice restaurant & bar. That building would a make a good dirty neighborhood strip club with a nasty lunch buffet. Maybe put some of those slot machines in the back and patrons can also bet on the ponies with an OTB. Forget about all those fancy microbrews, only Schlitz or Old Style for a buck and a quarter each. It will be the classiest establishment on the NW side. Call it "Deplorables"

Old issues of National Geographics

Howdy neighbors- I have about 5 years worth of magazines that I want to get rid of. Wondering if this is something a school wants or any crafty folks. 2006-2010 are the approximate years. They also have the fake leather book box that they are stored in.
Anyone... Anyone... Bueller? If not then I will just take them to the Village Disco...

  • Hi there! I would be happy to take some of the National Geographics off your hands. I send care packages to troops and those magazines are requested and very well received. Let me know if I could grab some. Thanks!

  • ElizabethB..how cool!!! (You , too!) Thanks for this!!!

    Just read some of this thread. Steve sounds like your the only one impressed with yourself. Whats the big deal about an Eve of the Eve party at Merch Mart that anybody could drop $160 for. It's not some exclusive shindig that's by invitation only. You can see Maggie Speaks at any of the numerous summer fest's all over the city ( but not downtown!! ) every summer for free. I don't think anybody at the party was all that impressed with you either Steve or you wouldn't be spending your time on EveryBlock with all us dumb paupers. Poor Steve. Too smart and rich for everyone.

Witness a hit and run at 3818 N. Kimball Avenue at 11:00am on 12/28/17?

Hello. Did anyone witness a car crash at 3818 N. Kimball Avenue at 11:00am on 12/28/17? My car was parked there and there was a hit and run. I obtained the police report and that report states that a witness saw a black Mercedes driven by older man hit two cars (including mine) and drive off. Security footage would also be great, of course.

  • Chris H Kimball Ave Homeowner

    Thank you very much for the response. I appreciate it. Does 11:00am sound right for the time of the crash?

  • MetroCyclist Food Crazy 9YR Inde Park/Albany Park Resident.

    Yes 11 am, that sounds about right.

Frozen pipes or water main frozen?

I woke up this morning to no water in my house. Called a plumber for frozen pipes. Since I have no water at all they said I’d have to work with the city. 311 said they’d send someone out - no timeframe given. Has anyone dealt with a similar issue? I’d like to get an idea of what to expect.

Possibly related - I saw water spewing out of a sewer grate around the corner from me (Montrose & Western) last night. Also reported this to 311.

Hi neighbors. Hit and run at 4135 n Drake. Dark 4 door suv was Nb drake but lost control, made a u turn and fled sb drake. At least 2 cars hit, 1 appears a total loss.

  • @bob, in that case, you incur the loss, depending on the amount of loss, you may be able to deduct something off of taxes.

    then your option is to find the responsible party and see if you can sue to recover losses incurred.

Why You May Want to Make Year-End Charitable Donations

While many people are prepaying their property taxes, you may also want to make charitable contributions before the end of the year.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/why-you-may-want-to-make-year-end.html

    Why You May Want to Make Year-End Charitable Donations
    The new tax law has been forecasted to result in $21 billion less in charitable giving in the coming year. As an estimated, 95% of Americans will now take the standard deduction rather than itemize, few will see a tax advantage for charitable giving in the coming years.

How the 20% Pass-Through Income Deduction may Affect You

The new tax bill has many people trying to understand how the 20% deduction applies to pass-through income and whether it affects them. Before making any changes in the new year, understand the deduction and speak to a tax professional to determine if it can be beneficial to you.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/the-new-20-deduction-on-pass-through.html

    The New 20% Deduction on Pass-Through income, What is It? And does it affect you?
    There are many intricacies of the new Tax Act that will be discussed and analyzed over the coming weeks and months. While some of the changes will allow for a tax reduction for "pass-through" entities, the complexities of the tax bill should be discussed with your tax advisor to make sure you understand how it affects you before you make any significant financial or employment changes.
