What caught my eye at first is the line of women sitting there waiting to get those locks trimmed and styled. They do some nice work here at this unpretentious salon. They do take walk ins which is nice for those hair emergency days. The prices are reasonable and they also do manicures and eyebrow styling.
I truly believe that Blue Man Group has been running here since before Joan Rivers had her first face lift. And that's a VERY LONG time! The show is unbelievable. I have never been to a theatrical production that had me amused, amazed and impressed all at the same time. Fascinating. You have to go experience this at least one time.
I am so happy they are still around after all these years. I used to work right next door to this place. Boy, do they have their loyal clients, let me tell you. You would see and hear all the "cats" and hipsters practically stalking outside, just waiting for the store to open. The place is a huge hit with (duh) jazz folks. They will find their classic and new jazz here as well as some hard to find items. I think they still do live in store performances. The store is one of a kind.
It's always just as hard when your beloved pet is ill as when you are at times! After all, they are part of the family and deserve great care. You will find that kind of care here. They are caring, compassionate and really take their job seriously. They have been around more about 50 years now, and their location is convenient to the expressway. They take most major cards.
Oh, those glory days! Two things make this school great: 1) They were recently the only Chicago public high school voted as excellent by Newsweek, and 2) I went here! The teachers were outstanding then, and they still are today. I have to give my props to the BEST English teacher in the city, Mr. Richard Saltzman. He is the reason I fell in love with culture, the beauty of words and the meaning of artistry. I am proud to say I attended this wonderful school. I hope Von continues to produce young adults who appreciate education and the freedom to create their own reality.
PROS: Best teachers in the city
I liked it here, but didn't love it. Maybe the big turn off is that the wait staff allowed this kiddie party to take over the whole restaurant. Kids running all over, screaming, breaking things and creating a scene. The management did nothing to stop it. Very sad. The food was good, not great. The portions are indeed huge, and I liked the garlic bread with baked cheese on top. Some of the appetizers are over priced.
Now here's a dangerous combination: A rocka and roll fan like me, a record store and a credit card. Suffice it to say, yours truly has maxed out many a card stocking up on great deals at places like Dr. Wax. I like this store because the employees are not zoned out like some places, they are very helpful and friendly. I mostly visit their store right by the Red Line stop, but this is good too.
I have literally gone past this place about a hundred times and just last week I decided to stop in to check them out. Okay, so Oprah and other rich folks won't enjoy shopping here because the items are not designer clothes, but if you just want to add a hip looking shirt or pair of pants to your collection, for a great price, you'll enjoy this store. I picked up a few dressey blouses and I really like them. Just take your time and look around for some good deals. Happy spending.
PROS: Great location, great prices
This place has a new customer in me! I went during an off time so I could really enjoy the atmosphere, because it does get very crowded at night and on weekends. I had this fantastic creamed spinach and parmesean appetizer with pita bread on the side, a salad with (real) bits of blue cheese in the bc dressing, and this excellent tuna melt that had avocado, 2 kinds of cheese and tomato. Their sandwiches are huge (I took half of everything home for dinner). A cute patio outside and lots of cool photos on the wall make it all a very special place.
PROS: Great food, nice atmosphere
CONS: Parking can be difficult
Someone told me about this caring vet years ago. They do so much for those beloved pets in your family. High quality, after hours emergency service, they take credit cards and are in a convenient location. They do surgery, vaccines, cleaning, x-rays and even counseling. They have been around for more than 25 years. Highly recommended by a lot of loyal customers and their furry friends.
