New Taco Bell in Logan Square (Coming Soon)

They do have a building permit, so it is real. Work has just begun on the next Taco Bell (No Drive thru) Right next door to the Logan Square Hand Car Wash at Milwaukee and Richmond.

How do you feel about this?

  • BurgerofHistory, I was simply giving my very own opinion, not complaining. There's absolutely nothing odd about giving an opinion.

  • John Lofton Chicago For All

    I'm not a fan of Taco Bell's food, but I don't have any problem with them opening a non-drive through location. There are something around 20 bars between the boulevard & Rockwell, including a couple of 5am bars, so I expect they will do well.

    I think it's perfectly reasonable to question whether having such a high density of drinking establishments is good for the neighborhood. If you want a diverse & family friendly place to live, turning Milwaukee into the hipster version of Rush Street will not help.

Que Lastima. 37 years. Wonder what's gonna replace it. Another "upscale" restaurant, or pricey cocktail bar?

  • Let's just hope the store front is filled and continues to be for years to come.

  • "Acevedo owns the building, and she’s looking to either rent out the space to a new tenant, or sell the building altogether."

    Well at least it isn't a greedy landlord. Assuming she's not mortgaged to hell on it she's probably going to be ok.

Could this finally be the start of developing this eyesore?

    It's going to be more like the one in Lakeview with a grocery slant it seems. Basically all the stuff you would actually want or need from Target in one small store. They are really good about product selection in the small-format stores I've been to.

    As long as they do have a solid grocery selection, I'm a fan. This fills the need for more mainstream grocery and a drugstore in one location. It's also a solid brand to anchor the development which will hopefully help fill in the rest of the retail. Could do without the Starbucks though, as if there aren't enough better quality coffee options!

  • There are now signs at the former Megamall site stating that parking will not be allowed beginning in early June and an excavator is sitting on the lot. I'm guessing they will start work soon.

Welles Park Dog Park?

Thinking Welles Park needs a dog park or signs can't let your dog off leash and someone to ticket. Every morning on baseball diamonds and today we have a party of 5 dogs off leash with owners chatting. Was hoping to cut through park but will go around.

  • I couldn't agree more Cubs. My dog is always on a leash and I deal with this at Winnemac park regularly. Dogs off leash approach my dog as I'm walking him and if they run up to us, he feels threatened. (His eyesight is not great anymore). I would much prefer there were a fence around the unofficial dog park that's formed there so we all can enjoy the park.

  • The police don't always coordinate with the Park District management. This problem has to be addressed with the park supervisor. If you don't know who that is, go to the Chicago Park District website and look it up or click on CONTACT US on the home page and leave your complaint there.

"do you speak english -- thank god." same EXACT script. her mother's in northwestern, card is over-extended, blah blah blah. i guess word got around that it worked, so the scammers are working it. so adjust your need to respond (if any) accordingly. (by the way, i gave the second scammer the loose bills in my purse. it's a REALLY cold day, and she took the time to give me an education. that's always appreciated.)

Horse Radish? Plants or roots?

I just read where you can freeze the root.

Please e-mail (klh@mindspring.com) if interested. Once you plant it, it is yours for a long time..and the leaves are tall and nice ....and you can dig it and leave part of the root in the ground and it will come back.

  • Hi NW...I don't have rabbits by me (feral cats and lots of backyard dogs..) and the leaves actually smell a little like strong horseradish (well, to me..) -they sure are attractive....so wish I could answer. But you are welcome to try it...(unless these plants would deter the rabbits from he other tasty ones.....just a thought...)

  • A site that lists "safe" things to feed captive rabbits included horseradish. Thinking horseradish may require less watering than turnips. Glad you posted and made me hunt-down more info.
    No pesticides in decades here; never will. Neighborhood feral cat is too old and slow to actually nab a rabbit ... saw two hawks fail vs bunny last Spring (yay).

My friend recently moved and asked if I could find a home for her turtle. It has a tank and some food. I cannot keep it sadly! It's name is Baxter and really needs a loving home!

    One of my friends was able to bring her turtle to the Garfield Park Conservatory to live the rest of it's life with other turtles among the plants. Might be worth contacting them or other conservatories in the area to see if they would take another one. If you do choose to adopt it out to someone please make sure it's someone who knows what they are doing and will care for it well. Sometimes it's hard to tell through the internet if that's going to be the case.

Drywall repair and painting - recommendations?

Hi, neighbors! We sustained water damage from the heavy snow and a bad roof over the winter. We're just about done with our roof repairs. (Thanks to all the great recommendations on here, we went with Nyberg Exteriors and have been pleased with their service and professionalism.) Now that the roof is fixed, we need to get the interior drywall on a few ceilings and walls repaired/replaced and painted. Any recommendations from good, honest contractors (who are licensed and bonded)? We haven't been impressed with the ones recommended by our insurance company. Many thanks in advance!

BEWARE: Door-to-Door energy scam

Hey neighbors,

Someone just came to my door claiming to be from Star Energy Partners. They had a whole shpiel about switching over, getting all green energy, paying half on my bill and not paying for coal fees. I told them to please come back another time, did a quick google search and saw that it is most likely a scam. You can read more about it at the links below. Basically, if anybody comes door-to-door trying to get you to switch your energy service DO NOT SIGN UP without doing your research first.

30th Ward Aldermanic Election

Who would you vote for if the election were held today?

A) Ariel Reboyras (incumbent)

B) Jessica Gutierrez (Congressman's daughter)

C) Anyone but these two

  • Drain the swamp. Anyone in there, or is related to someone in there, or even knows anyone in there, should not get any chicagoans vote. Haven’t you seen enough. Dems, keep everyone poor and stupid. They just want your vote. Business as usual. This tax payer is tired of business as usual. Aren’t you?

    Mark is 100 per cent correct .
