Dinner is solved! I'm a genius. Thank me later. Because I love you, I need to tell you to back away from the kitchen and download the Eat24 food delivery app. You're welcome.

We passed upon the stairs
Spoken was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world
RIP David Bowie...

A Video of Your Dog = A $10 Eat24 Coupon

Yes, you read that right. We'll give you $10 off your next order if you send us a video of your pet watching our new commercial. Here's the story:

Eat24 is the #1 food delivery app for dogs across the country. And no, it’s not because we started delivering bones. It’s because apparently dogs/cats/hamsters really really love our new TV commercial. We have no idea why.

So if you like the sound of $10 off, send us a video of your pet watching our new commercial and we'll hook you up.

Let's get these kitties into forever homes, come on #Chicago! Please share... #rescue #cats 
The rescuees from a "hoarding" house in Belmont Cragin would make good companions for other house cats.

I'm sure everyone has said this already, but Don Draper was/is not an Art Director. If you can't get that simple fact right about the primary character in a mega hit TV series, I can't put any value into any of your alleged 'journalism'. FAIL.

All you folks talking about 'Missy Elliot's version' - I hope you do realize that Missy Elliot used a sample of Ann Peebles original 1970s hit version of this song on her rap - Missy didn't sing it! Missy's rap was nice - but the beautiful singing you're thinking of is all Ann Peebles.

Warm, friendly service, delicious freshly prepared food, clean and neat restaurant - and so reasonably priced. So lucky to have this hidden gem so close to my house, we eat here (& to go) all of the time - and we have truly never had any thing but an amazing experience

Large, clean, organized store, clean bathrooms - but always seems 'picked over', I believe management or staff is cherry-picking on a professional level in this store. It seriously looks empty of anything worth buying, no matter when you go in, and pricing on items often is insanely high - or just insane. $74.99 for bad framed art? $15 for shirts? Meh. Handbags and purses are all plastic junk, and bad fakes, always - a sure sign of staff cherry picking. Hundreds of purses... all crap! In the housewares section, they also seem to have a standard policy for pricing "sets" individually - for example Salad server set? Each piece $4.99. Cream & Sugar set? Each piece $7.99. Covered casserole? Lid, dish and stand ALL priced individually. I am surprised they don't have each shoe in the pairs of shoes priced individually! With all that said, occasionally you will find items that have slipped under their cherry picking radar, so it is worth a visit if you are in the area - just not what I would call a 'destination' thrift shopping experience.

Everything I've had at Rex is delicious, carefully and beautifully made, with that authentic and correct balance of flavors that shows respect for tradition, these are the flavors of home -- perfected! My personal favorite is their Eggplant Sandwich, a sandwich that so many places get wrong. Rex understands what makes a great Eggplant Sammy -- theirs is one of the top versions of this classic Southern Italian sandwich that I've ever had in my life. Calzones are fabulous, their sausage is homemade and amazing, subs and salads are generous, delicious and fresh! Try their cookies, too - so good with an espresso! A really great neighborhood gem - plus delivery during some hours?! What's not to love?! I'd give Rex 6 stars if I could! LUV!!!!

Food was pretty good, but the service was horrible across the board. Better choices are available in this neighborhood, places where customers are treated like family, so why go here? I can not recommend.

The worst P.O. I have ever experienced in 30+ years in Chicago. Mail carriers are all apparently temps - mail is not delivered or delivered in the middle of the night, or at 7 am ??!!, thrown onto the porch from the sidewalk, and try to schedule a pickup -- they will do everything they can do to NOT pickup packages, even tho USPS promotes this 'service' as one of the benefits of using Priority mail. Call there for help and you get attitude IF anyone even answers the phone. I drive 2 zip codes over to use another PO. Terrible across the board.

Beautifully prepared Indian food, perfectly balanced seasoning & spices, clean, quiet and elegant surroundings -- warm & friendly service but not intrusive --this is the best choice on Devon. Hema has THE recipes!
