    Black Panther's identity politics give the superhero genre a fresh spin
    The first black superhero in mainstream American comics, Marvel's Black Panther came with an African pedigree: in real life he's the ancestral king of a small, impoverished sub-Saharan nation that conceals a secret empire, the whole operation empowered by an asteroid from outer space.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    Very dangerous topic.
    BTW, the best black superhero is BLADE.

Spoke Apartments Aggressive Signage

Anyone else bothered by the massive SpokeApartments.com posters blocking the skyline views? I am wondering if there are signage zoning rules that apply, at least for the removable ones

    Brand New Apartments for Rent in Chicago's River West | Spoke Apartments
    This gorgeous two-tower community in the River West neighborhood features apartments and town homes with instant access to the city of Chicago via the Blue Line subway and Milwaukee Avenue's "Hipster Highway."
    https://spokeapartments.com
  • You might have a case with zoning laws. My condo building dealt with something similar several years ago when the apartment next door (same builder) put a sign on *our* roof. I don’t know what ended up being the resolution but you could certainly check if they are zoned for signage, I think.

  • KB

    @heather more for knowledge sake than actual litigation, and good point :) @kris Yes true, I was thinking more about the hanging sign on the east side that spans several stories. Thoughts?

    Its a bit late in the season, so hard to find a service, but I have a service that I recommended to a client in Lincoln Park this year, and we just sold their other property, a row house, so maybe they could fit you into their schedule? Try Kevin McVicker at 773-268-2050 or 708-935-3729. His company is McMaster Painting but they do snow removal in winter. They service my own 8 unit condo building the past 4 years and are very good. My client in Lincoln Park is very happy with their service also.

  • We use Subjectk for the snow removal for our condo building for the past few winters. They've been excellent and their pricing is reasonable compared to others. Ask for Mike Lynch. His contact info is: mlynch7734@hotmail.com or 708.655.7667.

Steppenwolf's 'You Got Older' adroitly mixes humor, despair

Location: Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted St., Chicago, (312) 335-1650 or steppenwolf.org

    Steppenwolf's 'You Got Older' adroitly mixes humor, despair
    It's an uncanny coincidence that the recent death of longtime Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member John Mahoney would come at the same time as the company's Chicago premiere of "You Got Older." Clare Barron's 2014 drama shines a light on both the mundane and meaningful inevitabilities of life and death, and director Jonathan Berry's richly acted production repeatedly hits all the right emotional and elegiac notes.

Martha Lavey, longtime leader of Steppenwolf Theatre, is dead at 60

An informal gathering will be held Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Steppenwolf Theatre Company's Front Bar, 1700 N. Halsted St.

    Martha Lavey, longtime leader of Steppenwolf Theatre, is dead at 60
