"The north side and shared and road he was up north to the north to actually he opened in eighty five on shared and and and ended up with seven locations to in Hyde Park and was just you think you know it's hard to remember back then but you know pre internet you know you had the you can just order your shoes from Zappos or or that's right so in you know he carried all the the coolest brand these words were really trend setters as of this wasn't where I was shopping in eighty five but do you know these are the guys that had the the the brand new do you know the brand new Jordans or or whatever were were buying them at Tony's so he had a quite a following the business sort of ran it's course he retired to Florida but is sort of in celebration of the NBA all star game coming to Chicago next week indeed is has talked Tony out of retirement brought him back up to Chicago he's open up a pop up store in Hyde Park Tony sports two weeks you know bask in the glory of the eighties and nineties is the open already you know it opens today's the first day it opens at eleven AM it's at sixteen fifty eight east fifty third and it sort of started organically the the he'd started moving into this vacant shop that they rented out for the for the pop up in people solve a science and the like is that really Tony's going back really yeah he had that much of a following it that much of a following our our high park reporter Maxwell Evans it actually spotted it and try to figure out what was going on and then the third tab in back into this sort of the old history of of the spot in its it's gonna come and go Tony isn't your tone is going back to to Florida after this but I can't blame them it's going to be fun to I think for people to sort of of feel some of the old styles and talk about the the old shoes at least until February sixteenth now onto today's weeds story and bit of a controversy right this is you know this is an interesting one to us we we were covered a meeting in the west loop this week any others a million of these we'd proposals but this one can get very interesting because one of the public commenters that came out this is a proposed dispensary at Randolph and sang a man on the west loop new med wants to open up there on the second floor above a barber shop one of the first public commenters was the CEO of Haymarket center which is the of forty five year old drug rehab and alcohol we have center right next door to the suspensory and he said Hey guys come on like isn't there a better location for you to open up a a recreational weed dispensary then right next to a place that serves five hundred people struggling with addiction yeah I mean there are going to be places all over of actually but I I see their point about having that next door right it was just a you know it wasn't even the optics of it it was a it was literally like these people are gonna to exit right in front of all of our people that are out here you know can we find somewhere else interestingly alderman Walter Burnett who has a serious way in in where this dispensers gonna end up in the west loop he never as afraid to speak his opinion or tip his hand on the sort of things and alderman Burnett said Hey listen I was a I'm a recovering alcoholic I I get it I don't think this is a great idea either so it looks like new med may need to find a new spot in that spot talking about nine thirty five west Randolph and finally let's let's mention what's going on with a new park name in Chicago right sometimes change needs a little a little push this is the Douglas park in north Lawndale named after Stephen Douglas famous for the Lincoln Douglas debates for years now group of kids from north Lawndale students from lawn north Lawndale open circulated petition trying to change the name of Douglas park to Frederick Douglas park and they think it be far more inclusive of the neighborhood now to honor the the former slave abolitionist as opposed to Stephen Douglas who famously argued that states should be able to decide for themselves if if slaves are should be allowed so all it's been gets really gone nowhere the park district has not done much on it but lone behold someone with a a very steady hand and a can of white paint when just added an extra S. to all the signs Frederick Douglass spells it with to us is Steven with one so so we noticed it one day driving by the parking hole like a look at that one sign and then another sign we released every single sign the park had been all the sudden became Frederick Douglas park so the park district or doesn't know anything about it the they do now the neighbors the neighbors knew all about it and interestingly enough someone pointed out and read it that the if you go to Google maps as well that has been changed to Douglas with two S. as well so enough people got behind it told Google to change it and they did so only hold up was parked on the signs with two **** there is your extremely local news for this morning courtesy block club Chicago shame this to me thanks as always she was tucked in next week have a nice weekend and.
