City Soles
City Soles Visit
3432 N. Southport Ave
Chicago 60657

The first time I went to City Soles, I was told by the manager that if I didn’t buy a particular pair of shoes, I would be a "silly goose." And thus began my love affair with City Soles.

This particular store now has a different manager, but the new manager is just as fun, personable, and quirky as the last. If you catch them at sale time, they are willing to cut certain deals, so just ask! The best deal I ever asked for and got was on some amazing jewelry by local designers. Expect the unexpected here.

There are not too many Mom & Pop stores left, especially pharmacies. I’m glad that Ballin’s is still around.
Staff is always friendly and kind. You’ll probably see Mr. Ballin himself or his son waiting on customers.

Renaldi’s Pizza Pub
Renaldi’s Pizza Pub Visit
2827 N. Broadway St

Faux-white tea roses sprout from pint-sized Pellegrino bottles resting on red-and-white tablecloths. Glass cloves of garlic and portraits of grapes hang beside booths lit by bell-shaped lamps. An assortment of tunes-everything from Aretha Franklin and Rod Stewart to Rihanna and Alicia Keys-keeps the diverse range of guests happy. Young couples come in matching sports attire, both Cubs and Bears gear. Two friends anxiously gab about an upcoming trip to San Juan while awaiting their meals, and a middle-aged group of four shares the pizza a la garbage (sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and pepperoni pizza; $25.25).

Beatnix Visit
3400 N. Halsted St
Chicago 60657

Feathery angel wings float near spinning disco balls: You know you’re in retro heaven. There’s no shortage of vinyl or rhinestones, and the clientele is equally flashy. It’s not unusual to see a drag queen trying on size 12 platforms, or a straight guy in search of stilettos. No matter who you are, what you’re looking for, what you look like or what you want to look like, open-minded staff won’t bat an eyelash--real or false.

Pizza - Nice little place. Friendly guys behind the counter and it’s always nice to sit in the window and watch the passing parade. Enjoyed a slice today, and YUM! New York Style here in Chicago! Very nice.Italian.
