Dear John,
Thanks to everyone who provided comments on the landscape proposals for Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe).  We will announce the winning design in early June. 
Stay tuned to Triangle Tales as we monitor the CTA budget crisis.  We're pleased to report the CTA 3-Track operation hasn't been as bad as forecasted (but my evening commute from the loop home has doubled).  In case you haven't heard, the Diversey 'L' station will be closed beginning June 25th for approximately one year.
If the City has planted a tree in your parkway in the last three years, remember they need regularly watering.

June Neighborhood Events

June 2-3 - Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest
Some of the city's most popular restaurants, bars and clubs including Sheffields', Berlin, Spin, Trader Todd's and Leona's set the tone and ambiance for the 23rd annual Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest, benefitting the Central Lakeview Merchants Association.  This festival also features arts, crafts, people watching and fashions.  Alternative pop/rocker Josh Kelley performs Saturday at 8PM.  The festival is Saturday noon to 10PM and Sunday noon to 9PM on Sheffield between Belmont and School.
June 10 - Movie in the Park
Join Central Lakeview Merchants and Hawthorne Neighbors (the branch immediately west of Clark Street) for a complimentary movie in the park.  Hawthorne School at dusk.
June 15 - City Sticker and 383 Permits
A service of the 44th Ward, you can pick up your 2007-'08 City of Chicago parking sticker and 383 parking permit (and guest passes) at the Alderman's Office (1057 W Belmont) from 10AM to 6PM.  You can also pick them up on June 21st and July 2nd.
June 18 - Halsted Tastes Better
The Taste of everything on Halsted is back.  Your ticket entitles you to taste all the delictable offerings of the neighborhood restaurants and enjoy some jazz music.  Back by popular demand is the Waitperson Race!  Aldine/Halsted from 6PM to 9PM.  $25 in advance or $30 at the door for 12 tastings or drinks.
June 23 - Pride Fest with Kathy (Sister) Sledge!
Hosted by (and benefiting) the Northalsted Area Merchants Association -- the same group behind the wildly popular Northalsted Market Days (set for the weekend of August 11-12) -- this equally crowd-pleasing gay and lesbian celebration of community pride will be back bigger than ever in its 5th year!

Chicago Pride Fest showcases an eclectic lineup of arts & crafts, food and other vendors. It also features entertainment on two stages, including one dedicated to some of Chicago's finest GLBT performers, while the other will spotlight this year's headliner: Kathy Sledge from the legendary Sister Sledge of "We Are Family" fame.
June 24 - Gay Pride Parade
Each year, several hundred thousand people converge on Halsted and Broadway to watch and participate in the largest Gay Pride event in the midwest.  The parade kicks-off at Belmont and Halsted and goes north to Broadway.  Turning down Broadway, the parade goes south to Diversey.  Streets will be closed 10AM to 5PM.
