A group of high school students are putting together a committee to create a mural in Lincoln Park. They don't walk around the neighborhood a lot themselves, and I don't live in the area, so I'm turning to the neighborhood to ask: Are there any walls that could use a beautify project in Ward 44? Murals tend to improve crime rates, reduce littering behavior, and make the community feel more whole. Let me know if you can nominate a wall in your neighborhood!

How do I get in touch with the Alderman, Tom Tunney, for the 44th ward? (I have a bone to pick with him, just kidding! but seriously)

Chicken wings don't get much crunchier than the ones served at Bonchon (2163 S. China Place #1F). The Korean fried chicken chain landed in Chicago's Chinatown in mid-2017, causing a scene when long lines showed up before the doors opened. It's easy to understand the enthusiasm.

In recent years, the openings have only come faster. If I had to pick a favorite of the bunch, I'd go with the wildly crunchy wings at Cupbop + Ramen (2439 N. Clark St.). The half chicken ($10) features genuinely juicy meat, while honey garlic sauce is nicely balanced.
But that's just the beginning. Dak (1104 W. Granville Ave.) in Edgewater serves gargantuan whole wings ($12.95 for 5), nearly the size of your...

Im looking around for another vet clinic for my dog. I’ve been taking him to Pet’s First on Broadway but they’ve broken up his vaccine schedule and are billing me for exams each time he goes in for one shot. After I pay about 130 for one vaccine, they send me a reminder a month later for another vaccine. They are telling me now he needs to come in for yet another exam before they sign off on flea control,...
Im looking around for another vet clinic for my dog. I’ve been taking him to Pet’s First on Broadway but they’ve broken up his vaccine schedule and are billing me for exams each time he goes in for one shot. After I pay about 130 for one vaccine, they send me a reminder a month later for another vaccine. They are telling me now he needs to come in for yet another exam before they sign off on flea control, because the exam he received for his vaccine did not count. I feel like I’m overpaying for his routine care and I’m looking around for a vet that’s a little more cost efficient. Do any of you have a good vet to recommend?

Wave Lakeview, a 30-story modernist apartment tower at 420 W Belmont Ave in Lakeview East, is Chicago’s largest condo deconversion.
The building is in a predominantly residential part of Lakeview East that’s often referred to as Belmont Harbor. The location affords residents quick access to the park, the harbor, Lake Shore Drive, and the miles-long strip of bars, restaurants and shops along Broadway and Clark.
