Our Block Rocks: Neighborhood News!

The Rogers Park Parents group had a terrific Halloween celebration on Glenwood Avenue this year: crafts, games, candy — and a magician! The event is usually in Jarvis Square but was on Glenwood Ave this year due to the construction at Jarvis.

We have a new neighbor on Glenwood Ave! Welcome to Armilla: A Voyage Home. Specializing in vintage, reclaimed treasures, small furnishings, lighting, art glass, pottery, finds, classics, curiosities, repurposed wares and eclectic furniture. Located at 6928 N. Glenwood between Morse and Farwell in our very own Glenwood Ave Arts District, Chicago.

Welcome also to MorseL, 1406 W Morse Ave: our newest restaurant in the Glenwood Avenue Arts District. Opened Halloween night at 5pm.  The menu has a lot of range — there’s a fried chicken special on Mondays and a mussels special on Fridays.   Here, Erica and Dorothy taste-test the Grapefruit apertif (delicious!).  Behind us are Colm and Tom, of the Glenwood-Sidecar-MorseL family.

And you know what else rocks?  Both Act One Pub and Morseland, as well as serving food late-night, are now open for lunch even on weekdays!  Add those to our previous yummy lunch-time options within a block:  Los PortalesNoon Hour Grill (Korean), Heartland Cafe, Far East Kitchen, Sub Brothers and Grill Inn and we have plentiful choice whenever we step out of our building!
