Um, So it Z right there in Andersonville, and we've been there for about six years, and we love it there and one more thing I'll add in some restaurants and I totally get why are adding extra, So you have to buy a bottle of wine You have to pay or at least spend $300. Whatever the amount is. If you're going to sit in one of those glues to my knowledge, you have no extra feed. You just have to make to make reservations correct to sit under the tent.

You know, we are doing that to go business and And we're just happy that the customers they're wanting to sit in there and where I appreciate all the restaurants that they want to add extra fees or try and bring in the revenue because it's meted and necessary.

Are they any different this year for most people will talk about that in a little bit. Eyes exercise among them well next week we have on the show Michael Moody, who is a professional trainer. He will get us all he'll whip us into shape. I'm certain of that. As we do every week on the show. I try toe talk about restaurants, the most that I possibly can and promote restaurants talk about what restaurants are doing and how they're making it through. In this restaurant is one that you can go to and sit outside a little bad Wolf. That's the name of the restaurant and Andersonville co owner. South Ash back is with us Sow. Uh, your macaroni is just incredible. Doing, Steve. Thanks for having me today. I appreciate the compliment. You're welcome. But what I want. I appreciate the macaroni. What I really appreciate is the beer list that I think I stopped the page 412. I mean, it goes on forever. Yeah, it's it's a pretty big one. It's we want to want to make sure we had something for everybody. And indeed you do lots of different whiskeys, too. But rather than me describe the restaurant, I'm thinking you could do a far better job. Well, you know when when you say that we had a big beer and whiskey list and cocktail. Missed. A lot of people don't know little bit Wolf. You know, we put lbw on the door start off with the concept is, you know, liquor, beer and wine. We're really a cocktail lounge and beer bar first and whiskey's bar before the food and, you know we started guilt, cooking the food and making the food and and we were leading with the drinks, you know. Hence the lbw and And then the food just really took up. You know, big time We got a lot of calculates for it about our customers seem to really appreciate it. So, um we were intended to have the 10 15 pages of, you know, liquor, beer and wine and then one page of food, But the food just ended up kind of taking off. So it has nothing to do with little red Riding Hood as I assumed. No. You know what? We really like that art? I don't know if you got a chance to go in the restaurant, um, you know, without with this craziness going on, sitting outside in tents and in January, um, but I want to stop you there because it really wasn't. Yes, it is. Craziness. I mean, who would have ever thought On the other hand, It's really not so bad. It's a tent. So on one side of this tent There's a table and two or maybe four, perhaps considered that table on the other side of the 10. Probably 10. Ft. Away is another table that concede two or four people s. Oh, there is social distancing. You're under this tent. But when you walk through the tent, you walk through what is kind of like an open door of sorts. And that has left that way. So there's air constantly coming through. But overhead. You have four or five heaters that heat the tent. No, it's not a bombing 85 degrees in there. But if you if you're bundled up as long as it's not 20 below, if you're outside, if you're bundled up, it's really not so bad. You know, way have been jumping through hoops, and I'm sure all restaurants in Chicago and across the country been doing trying to figure out how we go about no salvaging somewhat of other restaurants in general, You know how we serve some customers and the tense when when we decide to live like there's no way this is gonna work. And is it really even worth doing it? We're talking about. We have four tables out there to win each time when we normally have 32 tables to see so, But we're just like, okay, let's give it a try it and just like you said. We were pretty surprised. No, it didn't take it up. 30 40 50 degrees, you know, tenting it in, but it took it up 20. So if it's 30 out, it's like 50 in there with a coat. It's pretty good. It's not bad. It's pretty comfortable. Right? Well, right, and.

"I've heard a lot of sort of anecdotal evidence and people talking about how people are moving to the suburbs and been some numbers that have come in, and we've seen that there is. People are moving in making moves during the pandemic, Whether it's because of their downsizing or their upsizing or the I need more space. They need less space. They need more outdoor space. I keep hearing that. If you say I need a little more outdoor space, they were shut in so much and fewer places to go to in this environment that we need. You know, it's more outdoor space. They are the largest independent moving and storage company has just put out some data, they said. There's a 44% increase in non government job booked household moves during the pandemic and what's happening here in our area there is they're having some stories about how the suburbs are hot in the North Shore has certainly increased in it. Some Ability to attract buyers. But you're you're also seeing something else about what's happening in the city, which areas there hot in which areas are not so hot. Mike Kaufman is joining us. He's been doing real estate in the city and the suburbs. The North shore for for some time, Jameson Sotheby's is where you find him. Michael, How you doing? Hey, Good afternoon, Anna. Yeah. Good afternoon. You know I saw this and this is the first report this data I saw about the city and how it's doing here. Interesting. It's talking about how the downtown district's 60601 zip code in particular covering the loop, the northern part of the loop and the Let's see the Streeterville area. Also, they've got a ton of inventory coming on the market, and that means people are trying to sell. That's true just for your listeners. Education. A normal market is somewhere between a five months and six month inventory. That means that markets in equilibrium there's a right Balance of buyers and sellers. If it's less than five month inventory, then it would be considered a seller's market where you know you listed. It'll go pretty quick and cellars get top dollar. If it's more than a six month inventory, it's considered a buyer's market. Because in our industry, we used that lingo and the average consumer doesn't really know from a buyer seller's market, but its inventory levels they determine a lot. OK, so when you look at I want with city first we could go to the suburbs. Secondly, you do see the downtown Zip code 606 the one in the Streeterville area. That's got a lot of inventory meeting people want to sell. I'm not sure where they're going. I don't know that we have that data right now. But you are seeing about eight months upon eight month inventory, which means It's greater than six months. It's a buyer's market right now in Streeterville downtown, and then you look at others of codes. This was interesting to be fascinated to me because there's very low inventory in other city zip codes, much lower than you'd see 3.1 months of inventory in Logan Square, Bucktown, Andersonville Rogers Park in Albany Park, Lincoln Park and Lakeview also Where there aren't that many homes to look at. So it shows that what does that tell you? Well, I also want to tell you the West Loop. It's still doing great. I mean, if you look at the market times from a year ago to now Market times are lower. Things are moving. We didn't because they're moving. Well, you know the million dollars under market Still moving pretty pretty briskly. I find out $123 Million market is having some trouble, especially like in Lincoln Park. A lot of homes for sale and they produce their price is a couple of times. So that tells me that the market isn't there. It's a really great time. It's a good time to buy. If you're a consumer But, you know, Thea, the question is where these people go when they sell, and I could only tell you for my personal experiences from talking to my clients. They had three of them are moving out of state and two of them are moving to the north suburbs. Your city city. People that you're selling? Yeah. Okay, Andi, you know, you hear that in New York? You're hearing that that the people are leaving for the suburbs, and that kind of thing, I suppose, is there's this underlying thread to you hear from people who, with your working remotely? You can pretty much work anywhere right? So people are saying, where's my ideal location was before I really wanted to be close to where I work to cut down my commute time. That was a choice. A lot of people made. And that's not as that is important right now. Well, if their families that they're also thinking about schools and and again I just go with the data, and I'm gonna give you objective numbers now from the Chicago Association of Realtors these Air fax a year ago. In northern Cook County places like cattle worth, Winnetka. Lincoln. What? These were all Buyersmarket Kennel worth one from an 18 month inventory toe a 10 month inventory Lincoln would want from a seven month inventory to appoint a half month inventory. Northbrook went from seven to about 5.5 and when that cat went from 8.6, which is a complete buyer's market to 4.3. It's a seller's market. And just because I tend to look up the staff before I do my showing up recently up in the Lake County in Deerfield, which the market was around 6.5 month inventory year ago, it's 4.2. It's a seller's market. Now Highland Park in Lake Force had a lot of problems. The last three or four years is, they say in marketing perception is reality. Highland Park had a 10.3 month inventory there down to 4.5 4.7. Right now it's a It's a seller's market Late force. They've had a really hard time. There were 14.8 months. Well, maybe the worst of the north suburbs there down to 7.3. They cut it by half. I mean, I know this is always hard to tell is this is off flight to bigger homes or people Ask your bigger homes. In most cases. I think they're moving north. For one thing, more more space and also better schools. They look, I recently had some showings in on Paige and Burridge and Hinsdale. They didn't move his lunch in Oprah Rich at about 11.9 month inventory year ago. They're down to about 86, which is good, but still a buyersmarket. Hinsdale wasn't about 11 month inventory a year ago. 77 so they've had some improvement, but more people went north, then West Are you? Are you surprised to see? I was surprised. Frankly, when this came out this was using the Midwest real estate data listing says you talk about sheer numbers and data, and it kind of looked at zip codes and neighborhoods. And it said yes, Homebuyers were looking to the suburbs. But then the fact that you had these city neighborhoods thriving with really very few options. I mean, like you say, if you look at inventory, you look at how much is available for you to look at down to three months in Andersonville and Rogers Park. And a and a remember a lot of people. Their jobs are here, and they're just not going to move and they also still they believe in the city. So some of these people that laugh it, especially from the gold Coast and high rises, some of them had families. They needed more space. And they were there on the edge of my going to stay in the city or go to the suburbs. And you know, we've had events in the last six months between Kobe And unrest downtown. It kind of put people over the edge and those people have. Yeah, and one of the of course, that that's another factor to and when people are seeing that there's a lot of sort of if there's looting a riding in their neighbourhood, and they're seeing that that that that's going to influence behaviors.

"Wei have been talkin Chicago history and neighborhoods of all things Chicago the past couple of months during the pandemic, I guess we started doing this. I don't know why exactly. It's not really pandemic freely. But we're talking about it one Sunday and said there would be kind of fun to talk about the neighborhoods and You know the kind of the ins and outs of the neighborhood's a little hidden places in the neighborhoods. The history of the neighborhoods, and today is no exception. Jeff Marsala joins us. From the Chicago Architectures Center and Ah, Jeff, you are a dose isn't with the C A. C. Is that correct? Yes. Thanks. Nice to have you on with us here today into bigger and ah, we're going to talk a little Andersonville today. I hear correct, Happy, happy too, and anything else you would like to hear about our virtual Offerings right now and live tours we do and so on. Okay, we'll get to all of those things. So howto Andersonville even get its name. You know, there's a couple different stories. One. Anderson happens to be sort of one of the most common names in Swedish and Anderson those Swedish name, but the name does go back, you know, again different stories. But around 18 55 when that was formed of Small town, you know, outside the city and named after you know, I've forgotten exactly who but a, you know, saying that Swede named Anderson. And then there's a more recent story that maybe this was part of re marketing in the eighties and nineties to sort of give some of the neighborhood. The new A new name, and that people sort of rejuvenated bad at the game to the neighborhood. So there's a couple different temple different ones, but it seems like an older name as well. So it's started off as AH City unto itself, not part of the city of Chicago. You know, I'd have to go back to my notes. But I believe it's started. Yes, you know, as the town and then was very quickly integrated into the city of Chicago, as the city grew and grew, it did this with a lot of cities. Even Lakeview was the town of Lake View on DH, certainly others you know, others within the You know, closer in what are considered, you know, Neighborhoods of the city were their own towns on again. We're talking 18 30 40 50 60. You know, by the seventies eighties nineties, they were certainly are integrated into the city. So Andersonville is one of the neighborhoods that when I drive through it I get depressed, looking at properties that I could have purchased that I that I looked at on got cold feet that were like way back in the day. Same with Lake views and with the DePaul area, saying, you know the name name the ultra exclusive Multimillion dollar area. I had an opportunity to buy property and almost all of these neighborhoods and didn't do it and IBM at $2 a share. That would be my luck that that would be my luck. My point being Kind of renewal that Andersonville has seen of a pretty working class neighborhood that now is much more than that. What are the boundaries? Oh, they're not official. But you know, it's Andersonville, by the way, the sort of a part of, um Edgewater, you know, which is a larger sort of one of the more known community areas, But I would say the boundaries of Andersonville, Um, you know, a little west of Ashland because you know, it's on mostly the strip of restaurants is really Clark. Onda Cross for national and be East. You know, Once you get towards Broadway, you're definitely outside. It's so kind of the neighborhood, you know, halfway between those major thoroughfares to the North, bring more to the south, certainly north of Lawrence, you know, people might think a little bit north of Lawrence would be what would be considered that area. Because once you get further south than urine toward uptown, Yeah, so this time in this neighborhood has really gone through. Ah, a renewal hasn't it in the last 2030 years? You know? Absolutely. I think when it was found that it was, as you said, Ah, working class neighbourhood, you know Swedish immigrants who were coming to work on the railroad on building the canal on other industry here, you know, sort of formed it their hub where they would live and then have small businesses. And what do you think you mentioned? You know a lot of the little neighborhood. Had their own small downtown, and so you know what we do A tour of the sound of the downtown of Anderson Bo. You know, roughly Clark Street from Foster do about bring mark on Bennett bid, You know, just sort of serve on in in that way, but.
