The Comedy Clubhouse, that purple building on Ashland just south of North Ave, just opened with their Main Stage Theatrical, Wishin Control. It was reviewed this past weekend and got the critic's pick:

    Review: WISHIN' CONTROL at The Comedy Clubhouse | PerformInk
    By Jonald Jude Reyes When problems grow weary on a person's mind, sometimes the last string of hope is to just wish. "I wish I would win the lotto," or "I wish the right person would come along," or "I wish Kevin James would make another Mall Cop!"

Hello neighbors: Something to look out for in near Damen / Thomas / Hoyne /Haddon areas of 60622: This evening while I was walking my dog, a man in a white Volkswagen sedan moved his car up to block the crosswalk I was trying to cross. He was looking straight at me and jerking off. Appalled, I turned and walked the other way. Then I get to my house not even a block away and another different man in a white Nissan sedan is doing the same thing in his car in front of my house not even 5 minutes later. Two different dudes, two different white cars within less than a block away from each other. I did not have my phone on my so I did not call the police to report either incident and I was too grossed out to go back out the car parked in front of my house to get the plate number. If you are in this zone of 60622, perhaps keep an eye out and be safe.

    Mute, according to Illinois Statutes and City Ordinance no matter what size of taser it is considered possession of a weapon. But a small pocket size taser or mace would be a misdemeanor. But I don't know any Police Officer that would charge you if you were being attacked and you used it. Mace is sold practically everywhere. You want to get the stream and not the spray. The stream does exactly that. The spray goes all over and could spray an innocent. The stream is like a water hose and goes directly at your target. There is a saying that says it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. The mace sells for about $10 to $15. I don't think you are the kind of person that would be walking down the street and be subject to stop and frisk. It is better to be safe than sorry. If you were my sister I wouldn't hesitate to get her both to protect herself. Stay safe Mute

Where is the greenspace??

As a 22 year resident of the West Loop it has been both exciting and overwhelming to watch the neighborhood transform. Over the years there have been many discussions / groups/ and community attempts to get a new greenspace. We need to make this happen before all the available land is developed.

Who’s Alice Childress? We should all know

    Who's Alice Childress? We should all know
    Raise your hand if you're familiar with the work of Alice Childress. I thought not. Me neither. Sure, it's easy enough to ID her as one of a constellation of black playwrights who flourished in New York during the civil rights era.

Red-Light Camera Ticket Refund

You may be entitled to a refund from the recent City of Chicago red-light camera settlement. Learn how you can check online to see if you qualify to receive a refund or have your violation debt forgiven.

    Check to See if you are Entitled to a Red Light Camera Refund
    As many drivers in and around the City of Chicago know, red-light cameras have been installed on many of the intersections we navigate. Unfortunately, many of us know all too well of how they work as you may have received a violation notice in the mail sometime soon after seeing the flash of the camera as you went through an intersection.

Flasher (and worse) on North Avenue between Hoyne and Leavitt

Tonight at about 10pm while walking on the southside of North Ave just west of Hoyne, a man in a black Acura sedan stopped in an alley as he approached North avenue. As I walked in front of his car, I noticed that he had exposed himself (and was engaged in an activity I can't say here). I continued walking down North. 20 feet or so later, he pulls up next to me on North, before speeding away. Gross.

Chicken/Helmeted Guinea Fowl Found in East Village

Does anyone know a good home for this chicken? (I learned from Reddit today that it is a helmeted guinea foul). He (or she?) was in our backyard today after work and is now up in a tree on a side street near Ashland & Chicago. There is a live poultry shop about a block away so if I had to guess, I think he escaped. I am a vegetarian so would love if he could live out the rest of his life on a farm somewhere.

The Next Shiny Object?

What the media is concerned about: The soda tax, the Cubs, the Bears, the Blackhawks, Trump's next bowel movement, legalized marijuana, etc.
What they should be talking about: Alderman Proco Joe Moreno threatening a Chicago citizen, unprecedented property tax increase, woman shot in Rogers Park. I also notice the Harvey Weinstein scandal has fallen from / never been on the front pages. Maybe because the media was complicit in the cover up for years?

  • You think Joe Moreno is a problem?? You truly do not know what's going on my friend. You need to scratch below the surface.
