Recent messages talked about businesses closing nearby Park Ridge. Since I'm moving back to the area what is the closest "old time" bakery that offers what a typical Andersonville type bakery would offer? Would this be a possibility for Uptown?

Anyone know what happened to noodles and company in Park Ridge? Sad to see they closed up shop in pr and opened in Niles. I know parking at uptown in that location is a pain. Sure hope the storefront doesn't turn into another financial services company. Or worse y...

With almost getting T-boned in the middle of town, can we please follow the law of HANDSFREE when on your phone while driving around Park Ridge. I constantly see it when going through uptown (well everywhere). The ticket isn't worth it :-)

Interestingly enough, I was driving home through Uptown a few minutes ago and stopped to check out the Christmas Lights in Park Ridge. I wanted to try to understand tonight's controversial post.

Today as my family and I were having lunch at the new korean bbq place in uptown PR, an older man walked in and pulled a piece of paper out of a plastic grocery store bag and handed it to me and left in Park Ridge. He never spoke to us at all. I didn't realize it when i took it, but it was white supremacist propaganda with some anti-Jewish rhetoric on it and a reference to a David Duke website. WTF! I wouldn't e...
