Best French-style patisserie in Chicago?

Try Fritz Pastry at 1408 W. Diversey. He makes Gateau Breton, Macarons, Pithivier, etc. I think you'll be pleased!

Where's the best hummus in the city?

Homemade is easy and delicious, but for take-out I love the Pita Inn in Skokie.

Knife Sharpening Services in Northern Burbs??

That's him! I remember when his van & cart were stolen and how sad we were. He had another cart made which cost him $4000, then earlier this year someone called him and said they had his cart and does he want to buy it. I think he had to pay $1000 to get it back! Now he has 2!

Knife Sharpening Services in Northern Burbs??

Tony lives in Oak Park, but travels all throughout the Chicago land area. He has a van and loads his cart into it, drives to different neighborhoods and pedals around sharpening knives, scissors, garden tools-even my lawn mower blades! Only problem is, you never know when he's coming. He comes to my Evanston block every summer. I just hear his bell and start gathering blades!
