So far all I read was food was cold and overpriced drinks.

DJ your analogy with the people that live by Ohare airport is spot on, some people in Bluestone feelRead More the need to bitch and moan everytime a business tries to open up in that mall area. The mall area that was there before those homes went up by the way. They have also complained in the past about the route 30 construction non stop as if they were the only ones affected. Not aiming this at the entire subdivision, I do feel that there is a majority on their homeowners association that give the area a bad name. Just my experience.

sitting in santuccis across from midway years back there was an old fart whining about the noise. IRead More asked how long he had lived there. He said he moved in in 1956. I explained that the airport had been there since 1923

Too bad TOBS didn't have good parents to teach him right from wrong. Hating is wrong. There are goodRead More and bad in every group. I think I'm a little late. You've got to be taught to hate, before you're six, or seven, or eight...so the song goes.
Tired of the B.S. April 14, 2014 at 09:57 am
Amanda, you said, on one of your earlier posts, Amanda Horn March 25, 2014 at 10:03 PM "HowRead More miserable it would be to insist that everyone have the same lifestyle, views, politics, etc. as me." Too bad that if you are white, not gay, not liberal, or don't conform your beliefs to which ever way the winds are blowing, you seem to insist that those people are, in some way, wrong and full of hate. By the way, I have wonderful parents, who did teach me right from wrong. I just don't change the way I feel to try to fit in with the liberal way of thinking. Another thing that they taught me was "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

If anyone can make this work its Frank Gatto and family! One of my favorite restaurants but most ofRead More all really great people to know!! OP you will love it!!
Larry April 11, 2014 at 08:59 am
Good Luck to the Gatto brothers, make this restaurant as successful as the Tinley Park location.
Lester Scanland April 9, 2014 at 08:49 am
The point of this is understandable, but in all likelihood, the land will be sold and developed forRead More retail which in turn will be profitable for the community, not to mention the jobs it would create. Maybe that should be the primary focus.

Goodwill is a joke . They take donated items and sell them for profit. None of the money goes to anyRead More charity or needy group. The CEO pays himself $600k a year while paying his employees (who are usually physically or mentally handicapped) less than minimum wage people would be better off donating items to shelters or Salvation Army
Tami April 3, 2014 at 07:45 am
I think it's kind of nice to hear good news sometimes. Not just news about how horrible people inRead More our town are. As I read some of these comments I also see there are a lot of negative jerks in our town which makes me very sad.
Sharon Carr April 3, 2014 at 10:00 am
I agree Tami!
TP Mom of 3 April 3, 2014 at 07:53 pm
Hahahah That hug offer is still out there for you Harry! Group hug with Mr. Callahan... who'sRead More with me???? Honestly, reading TP Patch comments wouldn't be the same without you Mr. Callahan. Don't ever change, maybe just smile every once in a while. Sending hugs your way sir!

Lenny Kravitz April 1, 2014 at 10:49 pm
Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.
william savick April 2, 2014 at 03:35 pm
Question Lenny Kravitz; Did you get your $200. back?

There is one on every corner anyway! Shouldn't hurt them to close a few.
JusticeLeague March 26, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Barb - I was just going to write the same thing! They spent how much money remodeling and buildingRead More new stores in the past year, now they have to close. What a waste! CVS will take over the stores they close, I'm sure.
Tracy George-Levine Moorman March 26, 2014 at 11:10 pm

The biggest winner of the night was the Garden Gallery & Studio! A huge thank you to the JayceesRead More for hosting this amazing event. The Gallery is honored to be the first recipient of this great event! Thank you to everyone that attended.

Funny how the most overrated pizza place in TP chose not to participate....Ed n Joes....congrats toRead More the true winners....Village and Beggars are the best!
Donato Martino March 25, 2014 at 05:53 pm
Wow, can't believe Village didn't win the thin crust award... My family has been getting our thinRead More crust from them for as long I can remember! They're the true winners in our family.

Another news outlet reported that Nicks does not serve alcohol...how do they have a license forRead More video gaming? Do they have a liquor license but just don't serve it? Interesting..that's all!

Easy on Vicky. These are some great NUMBERS of job being made available, but far from beingRead More raise-your-family jobs. I read between the lines.

wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!
James P. McMahon March 19, 2014 at 08:03 pm
Great idea. Let's ban tobacco and legalize marijuana. Makes sense to me!
Garrett Fifer March 23, 2014 at 05:27 pm
To all the people making the, "But they also sell alcohol!" argument. You must not beRead More aware that alcohol kills only a small fraction of people when compared to tobacco. According to the CDC, excessive alcohol consumption (key-word being excessive) leads to 88,000 deaths annually; while tobacco is responsible for 480,000 (almost a half-million) deaths annually. Furthermore, alcohol can be safely consumed in moderation without a large risk of addiction or cancer. In fact, alcohol (especially red wine) has health benefits. Tobacco has not one single health benefit and the most common outcome of consuming it is addiction, chronic illness, and shortened life expectancy. Tobacco companies profit off addiction. So please, take your uneducated comparisons elsewhere.
Greg Alan March 24, 2014 at 09:48 am
Not arguing here, about the facts of tobacco, and how it kills people. Not comparing alcohol, toRead More tobacco, & which 'drug' kills MORE people. People make CHOICES to buy these items. People also choose to drink irresponsibly, and kill, injure, & affect families, when they choose to DRINK & DRIVE! Smokers affect their own health! Which is more evil? I agree with Tony!
Jacke March 10, 2014 at 03:33 pm
we need a Party City store in this area, not a Panera bread, there is one already bordering TinleyRead More Park!! (or both would work too)
Jimmy Wang March 10, 2014 at 03:42 pm
We have every possible resturant chain in the area. How about a strip club?
Concerned March 8, 2014 at 09:23 am
Who cares about noodle and co? You would think the village of Frankfort who is all about imagineRead More would find a classier business for the most prestigious intersection in our town. It's like we live in Orland park. As for the parking it's a joke. The village stuff is doing a terrible job of planning and Devolopment. More empty store fronts throughout and now they are guys houses in downtown and tearing them down, but for what? You can no longer buy an affordable house in downtown Frankfort thanks to a staff that lives in Naperville. The village needs to stay out of the Devolopment game. Because they are awful at it. Paid over 2 million to buy, tear down fox lumber to put up a really dumb and ugly women's clothing shop. They sold a historic building (old police department) to a company a village trustee works for for less then $300,000. And waived all the building permits and fees. They bought a house surrounded by residential, tore it down and are going to change it to commercial, I'm sure the neighborhood just lives that. Get real Frankfort.
Amy B H March 10, 2014 at 08:27 am
I agree with CONCERNED that our village should not be in the business of planning and development.Read More Aurelio's didn't come back to downtown for a reason. Our village makes it difficult for business owners! We have a Subway and a Starbucks with no where to park. No room for a drive through! Stupid! The village won't let the Frankfort Walgreen's have an outdoor Netflix rental box for customers because it "looks bad". Yet, New Lenox does. The businesses along RT 30 in New Lenox is amazing. Good for the businesses and for the people of New Lenox. Meanwhile, we have nothing but a stuck in the 60's downtown and nowhere else seems to matter. Apparently some don't care about fixing the empty plaza problems. How about a nice high end outdoor mall like Oakbrook along RT 30? No reason to come to Frankfort to shop or to eat in my opinion. That's why we all go to Orland or New Lenox or elsewhere. Snobby and poor planning mentality of Frankfort. Harris Bank downtown empty for years! Care about ALL parts of Frankfort!! Get some real planners and developers hired.
DJK March 10, 2014 at 12:26 pm
Waaaay tooooo much going on in a space not designed for it. How about the parking lot maze aroundRead More that area? Between Marianos, McDonalds, Walgreens and now Noodles, it should be interesting!! Poor planning. Never should have been built around the McDonalds. If we built a road & traffic signals for Marianos, I'm sure a deal could have been cut to build a McDonalds in a different location!! Talk about dining places, ever wonder why Enricos has not built a new place yet?
Jordan S. Zoot March 5, 2014 at 02:49 pm
Given all of the things I have to worry about today I am sure glad that tainted nuts isn't one ofRead More them.

Big z displaying his incredible insight on complex issues and breaking it down for us “TheRead More potential new revenue generated by the implementation of video gaming depends on how many businesses participate, and how many machines each business chooses to put in their establishments,” Mayor Edward J.
