"Reporters grace hawk and christine fernando covered protests in chicago. This weekend. We spoke yesterday about what they've seen on the ground. Here's that conversation grace christine. What are some standout moments for you from your protest coverage before the big protests last night. The stan moment for me was public speaking with mothers other young people who've died in police shootings in chicago. I feel like this. The adam toledo shooting has dredged up a lot of bad memories for the city because you know police shootings on our new thing to chicago at all. I'm so spoke thursday night with some of them others. I spoke with the mother's of michael wesley and darius necks and they were telling me how much it hurt for them to still be standing there with the same message today. They felt like they had justice for their children. Then then they wouldn't still have to be there. Protesting that day also had a lot of messages of solidarity for adam's mother said that she's a sister now and that they were going to fight for her to So that for the smaller protests before last night those those kind of the stand out moment for me last night. One of the things that stood out to me most was just kind of the calls for solidarity between black and brown communities was a huge part of it though is a lot of no chance leg. Black and brown united will never be divided. That i heard a lot that was written on a lot of signs as well So there's just a lot of seeing people from communities of color like coming together invoicing those support for atom. Seeing the families who also lost loved ones to see pd in some capacity so last night at the large protests. There were a couple of other families there as well as the family Of a twenty two year. Old man. Anthony alvarez who died a couple of days after adam was killed also in a foot chase and his family said that by seeing adams video The police bodycam video of atoms shooting. They were able to have the strength to come out to protest and speak out about what happened to anthony and just seeing them all standing up there kind of holding back tears. There were at least seven of them and his cousin was the one who spoke. There was a toddler standing with them. There were two other kids up there and they were just holding these pictures of them with anthony and so just really feeling this entire community morning. Not just adam to leto but all these other people that chicago has lost in recent days in recent years and that has always been a facet of chicago protests and demonstrations is not just talking about one specific loss but also how communities have affected for a very long time We even had from. Jon burge tortured victim last night too. So people and organizers really trying to draw attention to along legacy of hurt by chicago police department going off. christine's point about Just solidarity organizers were mostly youth who were leading this which is common in chicago and they're very overt about talking about solidarity when we got to the end last night after walking for about four hours circling back to logan square park. One of the last things in organizers said before telling everyone buddy up go home find someone to give you. A ride was to say all of our latino brothers and sisters here look around and see how many black and indigenous folks came out to support you And that was this really like capstone moment. I think of the night before everyone started to disperse and it was only after that that there were some skirmishes with chicago. Police officers. Tell us about the crowd that gathered friday night. Yeah i think. I was struck by the mothers and fathers carrying toddlers mo we. We marched for hours And so just to see these. These families carrying their children walking hand in hand with their children. Children holding photos of people they have lost unfortunately is not an uncommon sight. Here in chicago but christine. I know you talked a lot with Mothers and fathers personally definitely. I think it was definitely a moment. Where a lot of mothers and fathers were trying to educate their children about what was going on like the reality of police shootings in chicago. Like i interviewed one man who had his five-year one of five year olds on his shoulders. Who was carrying assigned that he made and then another one was holding his hand and who is also carrying another sign. Kind of asking him about how he's been talking to his five year olds about you know. Something is a very heavy so he was talking about. How how it has been difficult. How of course he leaves out. Some details. wants to wait till they're older until like giving them the full reality but from a young age she really wants them to understand these issues of justice in the community. There's also one mother who i spoke with kind of heard her walking around with her daughter and explaining all the signs because daughter couldn't read yet so she was reading all the signs to then. The daughter was like what does that one say. And like why why did you. Why are they saying s. Why are they saying that so she. The mom was like really taking the time to like explain to her child. What each of these times said and what they meant and the story behind them as well so those really like interesting powerful to see schorr. What are protesters saying about the bodycam footage and statements made by police before that footage was released. Yeah so christina. And i put out a piece last night Before the the protest about the time line of how that city and police narrative has changed since march twenty nine th and that hours after the shooting took place march twenty ninth Chicago police label this incident and armed. Confrontation we now know from the video. That while adam may have had a gun at some point that night as he was running from the officer thirty four year. Old eric stolman.

"I open to flourish in two thousand and two. So that means we're just about to approach our nineteen th anniversary so we're really excited about that It won't be a normal celebration obviously but We're still really excited Yeah i opened. You know back then. I was twenty two years old fresh out of college and studied history. And i had worked in a grocery store So that's where. I really learned my background on floral. And you know. I learned just things like how to pronounce l. strom area or burnham you but i didn't have a huge training or background on. It came to design outside of my art history degree and painting degree. That's just be influencing you all the time just that discipline just cover different medium. Now i do exactly and it's It's really shaped my understanding for color and depth and texture. And i've i bring that with me every every single design Yes i opened up I had a small storefront. I really thought we were going to be a bucket flower shop on because you know boutique florist. Were really thing that long ago at least not in chicago. There were a few but it wasn't as popular of business as it has certainly grown into. No i and i do want to ask you. What do you mean by boutique because Would you know that's a term that means probably a lot different you know definition than what it is today so yeah. That's a great great question. So when i when. I came up with the idea of opening our retail boutique. I knew i wanted us all bucket flowers sort of just hand ties. Ready to go But i definitely wanted to include. Heavy selection of gifts lifestyle goods Even back you know eight nineteen years ago. I always knew that it wasn't just about flowers for me. It was always about bringing people together and gatherings and parties so as we've grown throughout the years our collections have grown and our offerings have grown. And when i'm when i'm purchasing for our retail. I always have in the back of my mind. Like how can this assist in a gathering. How can this assist in communicating and being a part of. You know the other person that i'm inviting into my life. You know Every day so it's it's really You know obviously weddings and special events or celebrations. That bring people together but are boutique is equally as important for that experience as well. So in your product mix you have a more lifestyle items that you think kind of support your flowers and vice versa. Exactly yeah lots of serving pieces for dinner parties A couple of years ago brought in fine jewelry so we now sell engagement rings which is really special part of the process. Wow oh my gosh. That's a that's an endeavor was a scary thing. It was a goal for a very long time of mine. But it's always been a dream to have somebody start their entire process of getting engaged in having flair as part of that story All the way through the last dance when we're able to help service their floral to for their wedding. Oh my goodness so. Are you in the same retail space when you first opened nineteen years ago or have you found expanded on. Come out front. Yeah we've moved twice actually Our first location the building had sold so we had to shift out. That was after. I believe three years and then we moved. We were in our second location for ten And then the landlord actually had just kind of decided they were going to move into a different direction. And honestly at that time. I really thought about closing. It was not my decision to move and there was not a lot of Opportunity in the neighborhood that we were in that i saw that was the right fit for us so i had to make a really big decision of kind of go bigger. Go home If we wanted to continue our retail and special events. And i'm really glad that i kept going with it i. It came very close to say goodbye and to the retail side thing. Oh yeah i was really just. I had a big heart to heart and I drove up to michigan for the night. I'm not too far from us in chicago and drink a little too much wine one night and wrote down all the pros and cons idea. I woke up the next morning. Just ready to go just ready to sign the new lease. I'm so we've actually. We started out with eighteen hundred square feet and we now are between both are retail and our studio. We are thirty three hundred square feet. They're kind of adjacent to each other. Exactly what is it in chicago. The logan square neighborhood on and we've always been in that neighborhood. I was really drawn. I lived in the time when we opened and i was always drawn to it because events cultural diversity and very strong artistic community that both of those still

That is, well, they're sold out every day, and it's It's a one man operation, isn't it? Yeah, This is a guy that's really you know, I guess what they pivoted He was He was. He was laid off from his restaurant job in March. His name's Robert Milewski. Hey, was he worked at a restaurant out in Schomburg, But so he figured out what can I do? So he started a pizza company, and it's not a brick and mortar shot. It's and this is another fascinating Catholic. If we've been we've been writing about a block club. He's joined one of these ghost kitchens. They're also called Cloud kitchens, which are basically just a warehouse where they got just a bunch of different kitchen set up in individual people can come in there and make a restaurant all for delivery and everything is in there, and then they they have delivery services. They could have door dash or grubhub or their own folks, but it kind of cuts out all the overhead of having actual Ah brick and mortar look. Station, but you could still have delivery options. So Robert molesting started Millie's pizza in the pan and for anyone that stands of Burt's place or P quads. Hey, makes that he makes that sort of iconic pain pizza that bird cats perfected. That's got burnt cheese all around the outside of it on DH. He's he's making me go, but millions pizza in the pan.

Chicago in New York City. that's great yeah. today it's a little bit more well we're global or global city. we don't spend too much time with the rivalry with New York City. yeah and I feel like back then it was happy to see we're putting our money where our mouth was coming into the rivalry only a one two grants. I spend so much money on this tune for luggage. Hey Logan we've not gonna come there was NO one cares we did would be there is a bigger more expensive the New York that we win we wouldn't. the. I know it's funny to think about the the the Logan tomb is in the what is considered the central business tech district that the mayor life is talking about knoll marijuana dispensaries should be in the central business district of Chicago she came out today she had a big press conference a man it's just a beginning he always want to talk about this but she I thought was really Trixie shape the narrative in a way that I'm not sure that I was ever thinking this way but she kind of like threw shade at the critics were like I know the rich and wealthy one all the dispensaries. but I'm giving in to the neighborhoods. this kind of a weird way to play like this idea that downtown Chicago for whatever reason the reason that everyone is scratching their head about why she chose not to put dispensaries downtown had to do with all these were these rich fat cats. given all the marijuana money. I didn't I didn't think about it that way at all I thought he was probably more about and I don't maybe this is her way of misdirect ing. what I thought it had everything to do with not like we saw with the president this past week when he talked about homelessness in San Francisco and and what I saw firsthand Seattle about the the. I guess the relationship between. dispensaries and marijuana and. who live on the street. for whatever reason. and you're seeing it in San Francisco and you sing in Seattle a singular been L. A. and and other places too where there just seems to be an abundance of of. people who live on the street and marijuana use and and it changes the. hello what's the best way to say this the changes the impression. from from tourism. and I think that you know as as the marijuana laws and states adapt involve from and the evolution of of the first states that adopted and in Colorado or California. you see the next wave of state thing I don't like cherry picking what they like what they don't like well you know one with that comes an element. man we don't a bunch of people just hanging out from the dispensary and as I saw and I talked about this program when I went to Seattle the for my summer vacation my family saw first hand. a correlation between dispensaries and people who lived on the streets and just an unbelievable amount of actual public smoking. so was just third wreaked. I wanna everywhere he went the downtown will stretching from pikes market there. and I know that there are ticket I know their laws he can smoke in public but I think at a certain point one of the cops gonna do within the home you know it's like we entertain me okay. so I will I thought from the get go when I saw that she was going by zones and she didn't want to put a downtown that the real reason was to protect tourism downtown to not have that kind of element that would be all over Michigan Avenue and State Street in other places would be a you know they went kinda keep it so the smoke free and from the chick fillet on state rand off Lake Street. and and I think they're they're I think a lot of people and that's what I was reading on Twitter was saying the sounds like you want that element you don't care what happens and humble park you don't care what happens in in the zone the other six zones or seven zones that you set up you just wanna protect downtown but I thought it was interesting today she spun it the other way saying no I'm punishing downtown you rich a lead one percenters at live downtown you're not going to get. your grubby money hands on this money this awesome amount of money that was an appeal like ten million here but there's so much money. prize but I I mean I always to end it are we done in thinking this or what we're most people thinking along our lines yeah I don't know I I guess you know because you see the alderman Riley and you see some of the business owners in this area saying well you know don't we want essentially talking about don't we want. they're the only want the money that we generate from tourism. when it comes to recreational marijuana don't we want tourists being a dispensaries buying weed and the tax of that going like this is gonna be buying. and seems to mean that and that's and that's and I guess it's a done interesting thought so yeah wouldn't she want people just don't like not only casino to talk about casinos been downtown. and so I thought that was what they were talking about but to Sir categorize them or put them in sort of shape the narrative to act like they're. these rich down counters are going to get that these are for the neighborhoods neighborhoods going to benefit from this. I don't know. I'm first went it's hard for me I heard from you so I'm not sure if that's how I see it. and I guess you can make an argument saying if there is financial. and I guess it would be the people who are get the dispensary licenses we're talking about small business financial opportunity for people who otherwise wouldn't be thought about to get the dispenser in the old apple store on Michigan Avenue. yes you can make that argument but since of the reason why you don't want to spend three is downtown I feels a little disingenuous I feel like it's all about protecting the sanctity of Michigan Avenue and the cash cow that is downtown Chicago from an element that has creeped up in other major cities that probably was not thought of. that at the time when they when they legalize marijuana they didn't think that that was going to be an issue that it would deter tourism. the people would want to go to the cities because they want to deal with the element that surround. and I I I I would have more respect for the mayor to come out to say that. the mayor came out and said listen I you know live Michigan Avenue we want people out tourists up and down here we don't want like just plumes of marijuana smoke everywhere sorry that's not that's not what we want that's not the future direction we want to see if our downtown Chicago put in humble park. put in lake view there's so much room in Lakeview east lake you Wesley few any any part a lake view. you can have it so we'll see how that shakes out are more to come here on extension seven twenty stay with. right now AT T. mobile get an awesome iPhone ten are on us when you bring your family.

"logan square" Discussed on House of Carbs

"It's Halloween week. Daddy. How are you? I'm great. It's always a pleasure love this pot. Always look we need to make child down a more regular kind of a visit here on the house of cards. We saw what you did in Chicago. It was a beautiful thing. I'm going to we're gonna we have an important topic today, you wrote about skittles earlier this month, and we're going to tackle that. But I can't let let this conversation go without hearing a little bit about Chicago. What was the single best thing that you ate while you're in Chicago. Okay. So the the one thing that I like ever since I got back to LA. I couldn't stop talking about this basically this Puerto Rican sandwich concoction called a Hebrew rito. Which is essentially like if you've had a Tortta, it's essentially that. So it's a sandwich with lettuce tomato your meat of your choice, except the bun isn't bread. It's too deep fried pieces of plantation. Oh my gosh. It was fantastic. And the the top of the top layer of the plantation the top button if you will is brushed with garlic oil, and it's just it was fantastic. I had mine at a place called Hebrew ethos IMAS in Logan square in the Logan square neighborhood of Chicago. And it was packed from the morning. Let me ask you logistics question. I've had fried plantains many times and presented in a lot of different styles and manners. But always kind of you know, in a snack mode and fried to an extra crispy kind of done nece that doesn't seem like it would lend itself to be a kind of a sandwich vehicle, right? Yeah. And I think a lot of the ways that are there fried as stone as they're meant to be this really dense crisp crunch. But with the Hebrew Rato. I mean to be honest like does it hold together as well as a regular sandwich would know? But I think that's part of the fun. I see it actually is a breakdown. Like, does it crack I actually does not it remains at least a little bit pliable, but they're still that really dense crunch. I don't know. I it was one of the real satisfying like complete sensory experiences where you're like, oh, it's crunchy. There's there's a nice, I got mine with blood sausage. Instead of the typical like, you know, roasted, pork or whatever. So there was a nice little like density to the blood sausage. Everything was just it was magical and the hot sauce. Melter? I'm glad that you talked about the multi sensory experience because it's Halloween week. And you wrote an article recently about America's number one non chocolate candy, and that is skittles and you use a word in the article that I'm going to butcher the pronunciation of. But it captures this multi sensory idea, and it's really sort of. I think at the guts of of the point you were making about the beautiful skills. The word is sinister, Nick. So I say it, right? Yes. You did. Yeah. That's that's exactly cool. Spent all that money for me to get a degree in English, and I can actually pronounce a word properly. I wanna talk about your treatment of the skittles. But before we begin with your treatment of it. What I want your take on this? Why do you believe it is the case that in the American palate skittles is the number one non chocolate candy over Starbucks or twizzlers starbursts starburst? Yes. Starboard I say Starbucks..
