Need a Recommendation for a Bathtub Tile Contractor That's Reliable and Reasonable

I am looking for a person to replace the tiles and glaze the tub, does anybody have a recommendation in the area. I really appreciated it. Thank you in advance.

  • Jeromy is great! You can reach him at ‭(269) 547-0286‬.

  • Phil L. property owner/lincoln square

    I recently had some glazing and tile work done recently, I won't tell you who originally did the work, as they made a mess of it. But the people who "fixed" it all would have charged half of what I paid and did a wonderful fix.

Apartment Forced entry

I was involved in an home invasion earlier this morning around 5:30AM. 3 Latino men dressed in winter gear from head to toe(and ski masks) was able to open my apartment door with keys or some other tool to let them in. They rushed in, grab me and threw me to the floor, ziptied my hands and feet, asked if there was cash, took that and phones then left.
Police and building management were called

  • I am still waiting to hear if other items were stolen and wondering why the phones were abandoned. And I know a lot of people who are up and/or up and out by 530.

  • 400 is the best time. Alarms start going off at 430. Lots of us workout early. After work we don’t want to do squat. We’ve got lives to live.

Indoor Basketball?

Anyone have any leads on access to an indoor basketball court in Edgewater or Rogers Park? I tried the Broadway Armory, but access is limited to Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm-9pm...even as a member of the park. Having a membership to a public park paid for with our tax dollars is already a questionable practice...let alone the public not having access to a public park. I went in there hoping to have a morning shoot around. Totally empty, yet I wasn't allowed to shoot around. Anyway, I don't mean for this be a rant...just kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Just looking for some indoor basketball recommendations!

Thanks!

  • Warren Park on Pratt and Western has men's basketball Tuesday nights beginning at 7pm. Maybe more nights, I'm only there Tuesday to see.

  • Just wanted to revisit this post and say I've gone to the open gym at The Armory quite a few times sine posting this and I love it! If you're looking for a great place to play basketball in Edgewater, this is the spot. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm to 9pm for only $5. $22 a month gets you full access to the workout facility and free access to every open gym. Pretty good deal!

The Malibu Convenience Mart is closing at the end of the month.

They have been there for over 20 years and the landlord isn't letting them renew their lease. The owner has no idea why. The bank, dry cleaners, and other business in there have closed, not sure what the plan is.

  • This thread is quite conflicting and confusing. The store owners didnt have their lease renewed but didnt know why not? They didnt ask? They seem to be sweet but overpriced..yet throw in free items? Maybe if they didnt give away free things their prices would be lower.One person says its sad in there..another said bustling. Sarah are you the tenant there or is this someone elses report?

My landlord is redoing our back porches which is great because there were pretty much falling down. They have nailed the doors shut for safety reasons while they were building the porches. It has been over 3 weeks of being locked in our apartments, the porches are complete but not all of us have been let out of our apartments. Our landlord insists that they will be done "soon".
