Restaurant Robbery

de Quay Restaurant was robbed last Tuesday 3/13 at approximately 4 AM in the morning.
The perp. got away with all the restaurants I pads and some cash.

There was some minor physical damage. We have the perp on video, but police cannot make any identification as person was wearing black hoodie and gloves.... left no fingerprints.

We believe person or persons are working the Lincoln Park Neighborhood.

    Thank you for the update David. I hope the business does not suffer for it too much.
    I have enjoyed your restaurant on at least four occasions and highly recommend it to. any and all who like Dutch-Indonesian fusion. It is so good, and great wines to boot!

Blue Bins

Does any one else have a problem with the blue bin pickups. They haven't picked them up 2 times in a row. They are too fussy. First they had the blue bag fiasco and now they are so particular that if there's one small item that doesn't pass muster they don't pick the trash up. i will just have my tenants toss everything into the black trash bins. What a screwed up city!!

  • krw

    Yes, I think blue bins would still work. But I'm sure labeling every product with that symbol (which many already have) rather than those ridiculous instructions would make a world of difference.

  • Thanks, good to know that I'm not the only one trying to do the right thing but having to deal with all the rules. It's not just me, it's having to try to educate my tenants and then of course no control over the blue bins when they are outside.

Litter on 600 block W. Drummond

Has anyone else noticed this? There is a chronic issue with fast food litter and dog waste on the 600 block of West Drummond. Cups, bags, wrappers and of course dog waste are constantly piled up on this stretch of street across from the school yard. Who is doing this? U.S. Postal workers? Construction workers? Kids and parents at games? There are multi-million dollar homes on this block too. It's shameful to have this much filth constantly accumulating.

Walkway repair

Anyone know of folks who do great work with walkways between houses - including problems from water runoff that contributed to cracked and sunken cement?

Spoke Apartments Aggressive Signage

Anyone else bothered by the massive SpokeApartments.com posters blocking the skyline views? I am wondering if there are signage zoning rules that apply, at least for the removable ones

    Brand New Apartments for Rent in Chicago's River West | Spoke Apartments
    This gorgeous two-tower community in the River West neighborhood features apartments and town homes with instant access to the city of Chicago via the Blue Line subway and Milwaukee Avenue's "Hipster Highway."
  • You might have a case with zoning laws. My condo building dealt with something similar several years ago when the apartment next door (same builder) put a sign on *our* roof. I don’t know what ended up being the resolution but you could certainly check if they are zoned for signage, I think.

  • KB

    @heather more for knowledge sake than actual litigation, and good point :) @kris Yes true, I was thinking more about the hanging sign on the east side that spans several stories. Thoughts?
