It's finally here: Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest weekend!
I look forward to this weekend all year and love to see all the activity as the set-up begins. I'll be there busting the budget, eating things i probably shouldn't, and maybe even dancing a little. Hope to see all of you there too!
|Setting up on Friday night|
|Our newest neighbor, Rogers Park Provisions will be open for the first time |
this weekend. This new business is the latest venture by the good folks
at RP Social.
|Putting the final touches on the display before the official opening.|

The CTA finally sent someone out this morning to repair the bus shelter that was toppled
in Sunday's storm and had been blocking the sidewalk outside Fung's Chinese Restaurant
on the 1300 block of W. Morse.
Meanwhile, the demolition of the former strip mall at the corner of Morse and Wayne got underway yesterday and is moving very quickly. So if, like me, you enjoy watching buildings get torn down, hurry on over before it's gone.
Disclaimer: I am at heart a preservationist and am not a fan of all demolition, but this was a sad little strip mall whose only redeeming quality was that my dog liked to poop on their parkway (and, yes, i always clean up afterwards, thank you for asking!).

It's been a wild day in Chicago. According to Ald. Joe Moore, we lost 75 trees as well as innumerable large branches in a storm that lasted only 15 minutes.

And then there were those dramatic skies:
