    3-Jul-15 – Yes, there will be a Great Chicago Fire Festival this year but no, it will not be on the Chicago River.

    The theater company Redmoon announced late Thursday the event will take place on Northerly Island.

    The reason? The 91-acre peninsula near Museum Campus south of the Loop can accommodate more people.

    “After attracting a capacity crowd to Chicago’s riverfront last fall,” reads the announcement, “Chicago Park District officials and Redmoon targeted a new site for the popular festival that could safely and effectively accommodate a large audience, feature more performers, and better integrate Chicago residents from every neighborhood in the event.”

    With about 30,000 people watching the “Grand Spectacle” of the inaugural Fire Festival on October 4, 2014, an electrical problem kept three structures on floating platforms from fully igniting. The structures represented Chicago’s architecture prior to The Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

    Jim Lasko “More than anyone, I shared the audience’s frustration with the challenges the spectacle faced last year,” says Jim Lasko (left), Redmoon’s executive artistic director. “I can assure you we will burn this year.”

    Scheduled for September 26 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the closing ceremony will feature “multiple performance stages,” says Redmoon, “which will showcase unexpected collaborations and talent from Chicago’s neighborhoods.”

    The ceremony will include the burning of a “GRIT” house, as in “grit and resilience,” and a fireworks display.

    24-Jun-15 – An owner of a bar that describes itself as “a regular guy bar for irregular folks who just don’t fit in or just don’t want to fit in” has applied for a license to serve liquor on the Chicago Riverwalk near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

    James Hinchsliff is one of four owners of The Hideout, located in a 100-year-old frame house northwest of the Loop at 1354 West Wabansia Avenue, close to the north branch of the Chicago River. Hinchsliff is also the registered agent of an LLC that applied for a “consumption on premises” license on June 18.

    KIIT, LLC, was founded on May 3, 2015, and has the same address as The Hideout, according to Illinois Secretary of State records.

    The Hideout did not respond to a message seeking confirmation that they are expanding to the Riverwalk. The space that at least one of the owners is apparently leasing – on the Riverwalk between Wabash Avenue and State Street – has never had a permanent tenant since the memorial opened in November 2005.

    The Hideout is also a live music venue, known for eclectic, alternative bands. Notable artists who have performed there include Billy Corgan, Death Cab for Cutie, Robyn Hitchcock, The White Stripes, and Wilco before they were called Wilco.

    “The Hideout is not your dad’s bar, but your granddad’s bar,” reads a description on the bar’s website. “It is the bar that granddad went to when he was young and crazy. He did his best to hide that past from your dad, but you have found it.”

    James Hinchsliff owns The Hideout along with his twin brother, Mike, and husband-and-wife Tim Tuten and Katie Nicholson. They purchased the bar in 1996.

    22-Jun-15 – When a young Chicago Blackhawks fan jumped into the Chicago River last Thursday to retrieve a Blackhawks cap, it was a tour boat, Chicago’s Little Lady, that rescued him.

    At about 8:40 p.m., after a day of Stanley Cup celebration, on the southeast side of the DuSable Bridge at Michigan Avenue, the unidentified man, who looked to be in his 20s, jumped into the river to retrieve his red Blackhawks cap. Captain Jovan Binion spotted the man and positioned Chicago’s Little Lady so that he and Rees O’Donnell could, said a company spokesperson, “pluck the young man from the river.”

    The Chicago Fire Department arrived on the north side of the river but left soon after the man was retrieved. He was reported in good condition but taken to a hospital as a precaution.

    Photo by Steven Dahlman 1-Jul-15 – Marina City is, once again, being considered by the City of Chicago “a candidate for designation” as an official Chicago landmark.

    (Left) Marina City from roof of 35 East Wacker Drive on June 26, 2009.

    An overview of the process was sent on Wednesday to the condominium association at Marina City from the Historic Preservation Division of the city’s Department of Planning and Development. The overview discusses “benefits and responsibilities” for condo unit owners in a building designated a City of Chicago landmark.

    Built in the 1960s, Marina City, says the Historic Preservation Division, “was a pioneer of urban planning and architectural design.”

    Financial incentives of living in an official Chicago landmark are modest, say experts. They include eligibility for building permits without paying a fee, typically one percent of construction costs. However, permits receive extra scrutiny from the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, but only for work to building exteriors.

    Commercial tenants, for example, would have to submit for city review any proposed signs or changes to the facade or to interiors – if the interior can be seen from the outside.

    “Routine maintenance work, such as painting and minor repairs, does not require a building permit,” reads the overview. “Most other work requires a permit from the city. Over 90 percent of permits for designated landmark buildings are reviewed by the [Commission on Chicago Landmarks] in one day or less.”

    2008 landmark effort not successful

    On August 12, 2008, 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly announced he had asked the commission to consider landmark designation for Marina City “in order to protect Marina City’s architectural integrity for the future and to secure its well-deserved status as an official Chicago landmark.”

    The request was under review eight months later by the Landmarks Division of the Department of Planning and Development but never made it before the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, was never on the agenda of any public hearing, and there was no public comment.

    Gunny Harboe “Clearly, you have a unique building in the city of Chicago,” said T. Gunny Harboe (left), an architect whose firm specializes in historic preservation, on June 16, 2008.

    “It is a landmark by the real meaning of the word. Everyone knows it’s important to the city. It’s a travesty that it’s not officially recognized as an official City of Chicago landmark.”

    Lisa DiChiera, Advocacy Director of Landmarks Illinois, recommends building owners pursue landmark designation “because you firmly believe this building deserves to be landmarked.”

    Landmark designation, she says, “has a slight move of lowering the value of the property, but there’s always going to be a buyer out there for your property.”

    “Often, a lot of people put higher value with properties that are landmarked because they know that property is going to be protected.”

    26-Jun-15 – The characters will not need them any further so costumes from the British television series Downton Abbey will travel to Chicago next year and be on display for three months in River North.

    More than 35 period costumes from the series, set between 1912 and 1925, will be on display at The Richard H. Driehaus Museum on East Erie Street from February 9 through May 8.

    The costumes are made in London by Cosprop Ltd., recreated from old photographs and paintings. Many use fabric from the early 20th century.

    Downton Abbey is the name of the country estate in the series, owned by the fictional Crawley family. The sixth and final season concludes with a Christmas special that will air on December 25.

    “It’s fascinating to see the evolution of fashion over the course of...Downton Abbey,” says Driehaus guest curator Ruta Saliklis. She says visitors to her exhibit will “learn about the historical and cultural influences evident in these visually stunning costumes.”

    The costumes should be at home with the lavish interiors of the Driehaus Museum. Chicago banker Samuel Nickerson built the mansion in 1883 at a cost of $450,000 or what today would be more than $10 million.

    Prices have not been announced yet but tickets will be available for purchase starting on October 7.

    After Chicago, the costumes will be on display in other cities in North America through 2018.
