The Saga Of Big Chicks

The Atlantic, of all places, has a story about the dark day not very long ago when a developer dusted off an old law to try to put Big Chicks (5024 N Sheridan) out of business, and how the community and politicians rallied 'round to save it.  Read it here.


  1. What was the name of the developer who wanted to close Big Chicks....

  2. From the Windy City Times:

    While Harris believes the license application is what triggered the city response, Fire also thinks a developer is behind this. "Coincidentally a developer has bought the adjacent laundromat and plans on tearing it down to put up a huge high rise," she wrote. "I think Chicks is in the way."

  3. That crap hole is still open??
