Via has extended $3.95 rides for another week!

I want to make sure everyone knows about the rideshare service Via, which has just extended its coverage to Rogers Park. It is an app you download for your smartphone--a more affordable and reliable alternative to Lyft/Uber. In the several times I've taken it over the last week, I paid $3.95 to go to the South Loop from Howard/Greenview--and no one else ever shared my ride.

I want to make sure everyone knows about the rideshare service Via, which has just extended its coverage to Rogers Park. It is an app you download for your smartphone--a more affordable and reliable alternative to Lyft/Uber. In the several times I've taken it over the last week, I paid $3.95 to go to the South Loop from Howard/Greenview--and no one else ever shared my ride. (This is a special price to promote their expansion to Rogers Park, and they have extended the special pricing for one more week, but their normal Rogers Park-downtown fare is $10-12.)

You can get $10 worth of free rides by using a referral code--mine is stephanie4k3, if you need one.

I don't work for Via--I just want them to continue to serve our neighborhood!

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    The only tasks I perform are grocery shopping, using uber, and the occasion purchase on ebay, target or amazon. We can each get $5 (maybe 10) if you use my referral ID mwct4a.

    In two years, I've received over $400 in rebates (cash, amazon gift cards, etc.)

  • Thanks.. Robin..ill look at it again..

Support Our Local Theater!

Four of the films nominated for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards are currently playing at The New 400 Theater. All four are also up for other awards. Here's the schedule through Thursday:

  • MandaLeigh Here I Is.

    Pretty sure they’re just someone who got their actual account removed at some point because they don’t know how to act in “real life”, and are still feeling bitter about it.

    He's certainly a racist but could also be a Russian bot ehh.

What's going on at Devon Market?

Devon Market has been closed for two days and there's a sign on the inner door that says "License suspended. Chicago Department of Public Health".

The outer doors say "Closed for repairs.".

Can anyone find the violations? I've looked and I'm coming up empty.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Word on Facebook is that the store reopened on Tuesday and is looking spanking clean.

  • See health code violations, they had a fail which is now a pass. Lots of rodent droppings found.

Recommendation for a carpenter/handyman

Can anybody recommend a carpenter/handyman to repair a door frame and rehang a door? Thanks in advance!

  • tom 2422 Rogers Parker since 1972

    let us know how it turns out... good master carpenters are hard to find... .

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    Master carpenters are often retired from the trade and become data scientists.

Affordable ride-share service comes to Rogers Park!

Dear all, wanted to make you aware that Via (a very affordable ride-share service) has added Rogers Park to its service area as of today! You just need to download the app, and then your first four rides to/from RP (their service area goes all the way downtown to the south loop) are only $3.95 each, and you can get $10 ride credit to try it out by using someone's referral code (if you need one, mine is Stephanie4K3). I'd love to see Via be successful in RP to expand our transportation options--hope you will try it out!

(To be clear, I don't work for Via--I just like to have a safe and affordable way to get home).

  • I came home from Roosevelt/State totally alone in a perfectly clean luxury sedan last night for $3.95, but I think the sale only lasts through the week, so I would suggest you try it!

  • D M

    Via offers private rides as well, at extremely reasonable prices. I was able to get home from work the other night for less than half of Lyft's surge pricing.

Mikes place

Anyone know why mikes place is closed?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    There's chatter on Facebook about the sheriff closing it down, perhaps an eviction.

  • Now that they're closed service will be slightly slower.

    Grace Owner Set To Open New Restaurant Near Loyola
    The Loyola community will soon welcome a restaurant owned by Loyola alumnus Michael Olszewski, who owned recently-closed restaurant Grace. Olszewski plans to open Onward, a casual, fine-dining restaurant, beneath the Hampton Inn Chicago North-Loyola Station on North Sheridan Road. This comes after the sudden closing of the high-end downtown Grace.

  • This is the worst feed ever. I don’t who to care about more, the alderman, Loyola or the people commenting on the restaurant. Time to unfollow this post. Fml

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    On the bright side it won't be hard for the Alderman to update his résumé next year.

    This will be a great location for a farewell dinner...with drinks on the roof...such fun!

Land bank.

Howard.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    I thought those first 4 fences were buried on site under the dirt that was hauled in to fill the hole.

  • Live From Rogers Park

    Landfilling the underground pit was one of the first steps in the development plan.

    So many empty lots in RP. Sad.

Gated Lot.

This lot is next to another vacant lot across from a lot under development.

  • Live From Rogers Park

    That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do...

    That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do with their own property? Contrary to the claim above, it's not "next to another vacant lot". The owner is using that lot as a parking area in support of a highly successful business on Morse Avenue. It's not "vacant" or unused. Is there a point to posting these photos of privately owned property?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Yes, I think there's a point. It's obviously #3 in a series entitled The Vacant Lots of Rogers Park. What will Tuesday bring? Will it be east or west of Clark? I can hardly wait. Wonder whether he has Mo's farm on his list of vacant lots.

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    It's all part of a plan.
