The Cubs will face Houston at 12:05 PM Saturday and again on Sunday, but at 1:20 PM.

Montrose is closed in both directions except for local traffic between Ravenswood and Ashland Avenue.

Next weekend on Saturday morning will see a 5K race, the Race to Wrigley, disrupt your travel. The 5K starts at 8 AM on Addison west of Clark St, continues to Ravenswood, to Irving Park Road and will end back at Wrigley Field.

Residents vehicles will be towed from the race course starting at 5 AM. Streets should reopen by 11 AM.

The 14th Annual Ravenswood Run is scheduled to run a week from Sunday, on April 25. Similarly, cars will be towed along the race route starting at 5 AM with streets reopening to traffic about 11 AM.

He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden.
