Upcoming events at Mess Hall:

Mess Hall is an initiative mostly based out of a storefront space in a North Side neighborhood of Chicago called Rogers Park. There exists no single way to describe what Mess Hall is because the initiative continually enlarges its domain of activity; moreover, this document is merely one person’s point of view. That said, I believe Mess Hall projects can be thought of as belonging to several different types.

Support the Community - Attend Family Matters event!

Posted by Mike Glasser on October 09, 2009 Last December, after being subjected to three continuous years of her shameless begging and pleading, I finally accepted Kim Delong’s invitation to join the Family Matters Board of Directors. For those of you who don’t know, Kim is the Executive Director and founder of Family Matters. She created this organization over twenty years ago, and over time (or at least until the time I joined the Board) it has become one of the more highly regarded non for profits in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.

Under the Root - Shop Local

Under the Root - Shop Local The Company, Under The Root, owned by Jennifer Brown, a long time Rogers Park resident, began in Chicago while designing and producing pieces for performers, clients, and necessity. It has continued, since 1998, to create delicates with sustainable and reclaimed, repurposed textiles. The structures are designed to connect wearers with their personal charm, burlesque nature, conscious responsibility, and utilitarianism character. Each pattern has the inclination to uncover an individual’s sensuality and playfulness. This discovery, then releases the humor and desire for textiles that overlay the skin and ‘turn on’ the needs of what breathes underneath. Today, each handmade structure reflects the use of materials and the grace of the human body. The designs display the nostalgia of the vintage eras they represent and the functionality needed for the 21st Century. Shop Here

But what Frances Hitchcock, 60, remembers just as much are the days and months after, when the officers continued to reassure her that she could still feel safe in her Far North Side neighborhood.
