this music store sells instruments (strings, winds and percussion), accessories and some music sheets. It's a good place to go if you need a specific accossory quickly (reeds, ligature, strings....) but their music library doesn't have much and they don't have that many instruments. I had my clarinet recorked there once and I had to come back two times before I could get something I liked. The prices are Ok.
I made a life-long committment to this repair shop! I play clarinet and M. Sayre has done a wonderful work on my instrument every times I went there. His prices are not to high and he is not going to do anything without telling you all the details and asking you if you agree. it's quite a long ride to get there if you leave in Chicago but it's completly worth it!
everything you want to get dress, take care of yourself and decorate your house is there and it's cheap! all the products are brand new but the prices are cut! you'll get brand names clothes for less than $20 and perosnnal care products for less than $5. it's also great when you need a present for someone because it's easy to find something classy and cute for a reasonnable price!
this store has a huge collection of adorable women accessories and clothing. everything is really fashionable and quite unique. unfortunatly the prices are very high so it's not a student friendly boutique!
this store accepts donations and sells clothes, furnitures, dishes, books... to raise funds for HIV/Aids care and gay and lesbian services. everything is used but in good condition and rather cheap. the quality of the articles varies a lot from week to week but it's possible to dress there (pants, t-shirts, skirts....) for cheap and even to find nice furniture for less than $50.
this store has recycled clothes as well as discounted new clothes. some of it is really cheap but most of it is still a litlle too pricy for my taste. they do have cool and unique stuff but it's really messy so you have to spend a long time looking before finding good stuff.
this is the ideal store for broke students! you can get t-shirt for $2, pants for $4, books for 50 cents and a lot more! ok, it's a little messy and you have to dedicate time to look for the perfect clothes because they carry completly torn stuff as well as brand new. but it's worth it if you don't like to spend money on you outfit!!
if you are looking for good cajun cuisine in chicago this is the place! the price is decent the food is quality and quantity! the service is fast and the place is nice.
it's so good people line up in front of it for sunday brunch!
this tiny little place is a hiden treasure! it's had good food for reasonnable prices ($5.25 for the eggs benedict or the gypsy skillet ) and the owners are extremelly friendly. it looks like a coffee shop from the fifties and everybody seats at the counter to eat. the atmosphere is great!
it's really busy in the morning so get there early!
This little swedish restaurant in the northwest side is fabulous! the food is very good, it's not too expensive and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable.
if you go there try the eggs benedicts, one of my favorites ! but if you go on sundays be prepared to wait : it gets really crowded.
