The Comedy Clubhouse's "Wishin Control" is a Critic's Pick.

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!"

  • Rowe Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My child attended this school 6 yrs and our experience was amazing, this is one school where you feel like a part of whole. Open door polices, with teachers or the principal at all times, any issues you may have are address right in the momont & not put off, I loved that about the school, and the strong academic foundation my child received at Rowe I feel has set her up for success.

trying to improve safety in our neighborhood

Hello, I was just on of the people robbed by armed men the other evening (near Pulaski park) and I wanted to share with you a message I sent to Alderman Hopkins. I hope that others too will reach out to city officials. These crimes that are happening day and night here need to be stopped.

Hello, I was just on of the people robbed by armed men the other evening (near Pulaski park) and I wanted to share with you a message I sent to Alderman Hopkins. I hope that others too will reach out to city officials. These crimes that are happening day and night here need to be stopped. The criminals have zero fear raiding our neighborhoods and terrorizing residents and I hope that we can change that, NOW!

"Hello, I was held up by gunmen the other evening returning from work in front of my building just upon exiting the car. I filed a police report and learned from the police and others that mine was not the only incident that night. It seems in a span of a couple of hours these men targeted several people. The incident was terrifying and it was also brought to my attention that the police do not have the forces they need on the street overnight to do their jobs. Also, I also learned recently that they are often told not to chase to apprehend criminals. What are they to do? If the police have their hands tied these criminals know that they can terrorize the unarmed public and do basically whatever they want! It's awful! Also, I had noticed for some time that my street and general area here is quite dark at night. Are there any plans for added lighting or perhaps type of lighting for this area? Thank you very much. I am grateful that I only had to give up some of my belongings to spare my life but I am not the only one who works the second or third shift in this city and not every crime ends without violence. Please help to make the neighborhood safer, day AND night. Not everyone can stay barricaded inside overnight as residents have suggested I do, nor should we have to accept and tolerate that criminals have free reign of the streets just because the sun goes down. Thank you very much for your time. Please advise me if I can be of any assistance in this."

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

My neighbor was robbed by 3 males approximately 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning as she got out of her car street parked right in front of our building. I will relay the info as best i can. She exited the car, was approached by 1 male, shortish (5 feet?) Who was wearing a Halloween mask, the other 2 pulled up in a car. She was told he had a gun, i think she saw it too, then told not to yell or scream. She set her bag on the ground, the male frisked her pockets, took her things & jumped in the car & left. They took her work bag, some cash, id & credit cards. She was not hurt- just shocked & scared. They threw her keys on the ground & didn't take her car. She didn't get a good look/description of the males or car. It happened very quick. She filed a police report. This happened 1253 n cleaver, at Potomac & cleaver. Maybe a neighbor has cameras that caught something? Just be aware, keep your heads up neighbors, take care!

Million Dollar Town Houses On Wicker, Noble Square Border Launch Pre-Sales

WICKER PARK — A row of modern $1 million town houses with private terraces and out-of-view garages is coming to a side street on the border of Wicker Park and Noble Square  — one block from the busy Milwaukee Avenue and Division Street intersection.

The homes will be designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects, who also partnered with Henry Street Partners to design a modern apartment tower at 1611 W. Division St. that opened in 2013.

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.
