    New kind of veggie burger threatens old-school variety for title of Chicago's best
    Can a veggie burger be great? If you'd asked me a few years ago, I'm not sure if I would have been able to answer yes. While I've had good ones, which completely satisfied the craving I had for something filling, portable and meatless, it's much easier to describe what a veggie burger shouldn't taste like - mushy, dry and crumbly - than what it should.

Congrats to Anthony Riccio

Organized Crime Chief was tapped on the shoulder to be 2nd top cop.

He is a wonderful man who cares about residents living in the toughest parts of town. He helps several senior ladies I know on 3200/3300 W Walnut by deploying resources to clean up the shooting, drug dealing, murders on their block.

Congrats AnthonyR and for those who need help; send him an email.

Underground Pedway

How safe is the underground pedway near the museums? I know there's an entrance near 1100 S. Columbus Drive near the Aquarium. Input greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    I've used the underpass to the museum campus countless times without a problem. In fact, I've never heard of anyone having a problem there, though like anywhere there might have been a few incidents. I consider it to be quite safe.

  • Thanks so much, everyone! I thought it was going to be completely underground, but it ended up being an open underpass as folks have mentioned. I'm curious to try the actual underground Pedway. I guess I should explore one of these days!

Looking for a good honest plumber for Pilsen

Some friends of mine on 21st street are having a clogged toilet problem. Three-story house, it's a problem with the toilet on the second floor, only. Seems isolated to that stack. They need a good plumber, but obv. like everyone else, they're budget-minded folks.

  • that's correct...just as offensive, just as wrong, and there should be NO TOLERANCE for any form of it, either way.

  • beezer, very well explained - the purpose of this post is the anti-gentrification/racism message. The same group of people/non-for-profit Pilsen Alliance who for years spread their message of hate of others due to the color of their skin, many of which do not even live in the area, let alone Chicago.

Piano teacher?

Hi, I'm looking for a piano teacher for my five year old. Any recommendations? We have a piano, so we're able to have someone come to us, if needed. Thanks!

  • Merit School of Music is a good school. They may have or know of "at home" teachers. My goddaughter went there for 2 or 3 years. I haven't tried Chicago Academy Of Music on 17th, but they may have or know of resources. That's great that he's starting so young! Good luck. :)

  • Even though Old Town School of Folks Music is north, you could ask them if they have any teachers from or who travel to the Pilsen area.

  • These are great ideas, thank you! I also found a site, takelessons.com, where you can look within an area code and see reviews for a teacher, too. I'm going to check out the places you recommended, as well. Thank you!

    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.

Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

Vandals damage Holy Family window; five other churches hit

“It reminds us to always be forgiving and understand people are coming from other places,” said Linda Lavery as she helped distribute food to the homeless at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Rd. “At Christmas time, people do have a lot of emotional issues. We are called to be forgiving.”

At St. Procopius Church, 1641 S. Allport St., a thief broke through a glass panel in a side door to steal money from the candle box, Sylvia Pels, church operations director, said. “A surveillance camera photographed the thief, but could not capture his face.”

Pels said the St. Procopius burglary was at 2 a.m. Dec. 4. At 9:30 a.m. the same day, a thief broke into St. Pius Parish, 1919 S. Ashland Ave. No one at St. Pius could be reached for comment.

On Dec. 7, someone tried to break into St. Francis of Assisi Parish, 813 W. Roosevelt Rd., smashing a glass panel in a front door. “The alarm was on, so they left,” the pastor, Rev. Walter Mallo, said.

At Old St. Pat’s, 700 W. Adams St., sometime between 10 p.m. Dec. 20 and 10 a.m. the following morning, someone smashed a glass block window but did not enter the church, police said.

Fr. Gabriel said he was told vandals also broke two windows at the former St. Adalbert Church, 1650 W. 17th St., which has been purchased by an arts group. Many windows in the church and its adjacent buildings were already boarded up.

    Gazette Chicago " Vandals damage Holy Family window; five other churches hit
    January 4, 2018 Christmas joy was tempered by sadness at six houses of worship hit in December by vandals and would-be thieves: Holy Family, Old St. Patrick's, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Pius, St. Procopius, and St. Adalbert churches.

Pilsen Alliance not so innocent

The Pilsen Alliance isn't so innocent when it comes to race.

  • As a real estate professional ANYWHERE you can't "steer". Meaning you can't direct people to a neighborhood if the intention is good or bad.
    Example: You can't direct a Mexican family to Pilsen simply because they're Mexican and Pilsen presently has a high Mexican population.
    The intention may be good...

    The intention may be good but for a real estate agent, it's illegal even so.
    I don't read any veiled meaning in these posts.
    What the Pilsen Alliance is doing is directly "steering" and even worse.
    They're singling out racial groups as enemies in their own neighborhood for the fact these people are not Mexican.
    Racism to a major degree.
    They have not interest in harmony.
    Their cause is self serving and delusional.

    Looks to me there's alot of Indians and other Asian groups moving in as well. What they all have in common is green money. If you don't have money you can't choose were you live.
    Pilsen Alliance are nothing but a bunch of jerks.

Xiu Xiu reimagine the eerie, gorgeous soundtrack of Twin Peaks

Sat 1/6, 8:30 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $25, $20 in advance, 17+

    Xiu Xiu reimagine the eerie, gorgeous soundtrack of Twin Peaks
    As groundbreaking and fascinating as the television show Twin Peaks was when it ran in the 90s (and was again during its recent resurrection), it's doubtful that the David Lynch-directed surrealistic murder drama would have reached its iconic status without its drop-dead-gorgeous soundtrack.
