Happy Dogs at Pet Care Plus

Pet Care Plus

Just like human beings need care so do the dogs. I recently had a great experience at Pet Care Plus. The place was a fully facility that ever dog needs such as a day boarding, daycare, grooming, training or simply a walk. The location is located in Chicago with 10,000 square feet area of space for dogs to move and enjoy their time with other dogs. Their team had ample knowledge of the animal world, and they have been in this business for over years. They don’t differentiate dogs just by their size, but they understand the requirements of each dog individually and provide the space accordingly.

They also provide extra care in case if the owners had special requirements for our pet. They have different areas for dogs to play from and. For instance, if some dogs needed private space to stretch their legs or move or play they provide it for him/her. They also make the environment so friendly and stress-free that no dogs feel that being in a day care is being in a cage. In their schedule, they have also included a time for dogs to sleep so that they don’t feel uneasy and can enjoy their day in a much better and healthy way.

Pet Care Plus had one of the best dog grooming services that I have experienced so far. It had the best facility that they are providing to properly groom dogs in a safe and painless way. Their grooming techniques for bathing provided a safe and secure feeling for pets. Coming in, my pet was nervous at first but got use to the friendly staff member. The employees did everything they could to keep my dog cleaner and healthier than before. They took the pain out of having to get my big furry dog a bath personally.

Pet care plus knows that dogs too have life and meant to be enjoyed in their ways with a clean, healthier and happy body. This service could do you much good, don’t be left out.

Great Sit-in Coffee Shop – Coffee Studio Chicago

Coffee Studio

Tasty Coffee Shop With a Great Deal for Style to it

On our journey to Chicago we were lucky enough to lodge in a nice place in Andersonville, and one day just round the corner we stumbled upon the Coffee Studio. It seemed a bit posh from the outside, but when you get in you just don’t want to leave. Cup after cup – impeccable coffee, made by nicest baristas you can find. Different brews, some delicious bagels and doughnuts to go with every cup, Wi-Fi to distract you. I loved that they have a shop, and you can buy almost everything they use to make coffee to try it at home – a great selection of coffee beans, and very good tea.

The style of the place is gorgeous, you can see attention to every detail, so that you feel surrounded with things that satisfy your every sense. You have the great taste of coffee, the splendid aroma that only a good coffee shop can have, and you feast your eyes on the design. What gave me the most satisfaction, as an art lover, is that they exhibit fine pieces of photo artistry on their walls. As i get it, these change from time to time, so that you see different artists, and never get bored to come back. I had a hunch, and googling a bit understood that i wasn’t wrong thinking that owners of the place are related to design in some way.

They did a great job – each choice of product shows how much they cared for the place. Local coffee, skilled baristas, good machinery, not overly sophisticated with food (if you come for coffee, you don’t want to be distracted from it’s taste), and a joy to your eyes because of the design and pieces of art. I’m sure to look for a place to stay near that coffee shop for my next trip to Chicago.

Choosing a Great Online Chicago Coffee Store


Ipsento Online Chicago Coffee Store


Looking for the best Chicago Coffee Shop? Do your homework first! Coffee is coffee, right? Wrong! Quality coffee is the good coffee. Ignorance is bliss, yes? Wrong again! An informed consumer is always ahead of the game. Choosing your Chicago Coffee is not any different from picking out a holiday ham. You are fussy about the bread you buy or how much sugar is hiding in your kid’s cereal. Be discriminating about your coffee. Be informed. The informed coffee consumer is always ahead of the game. From the freshly roasted coffee beans, all the way to the cup you use, choose your coffee wisely,

Recently I tried the online coffee store: www.ipsento.com If you start with fresh, you get fresh. Quality gourmet coffee is roasted hours before shipping and is at your doorstep within…at the most a week of roasting. It should arrive in a vacuum-sealed bag with a breathing seal. Starting with fresh, high-quality beans means being willing to settle for nothing less than the best high-quality coffee beans you can find. Most sites that sell coffee offer fresh ground coffee beans as an option. If you don’t own a coffee grinder, this may work for you until you can purchase one. Purchasing coffee from one of the coffee sites offering this option will at least ensure that your coffee is reasonably fresh. However, it needs to be used up right away or stored properly. If you buy coffee already ground, you as the consumer want to bear in mind that already ground coffee loses the original quality quickly. Storing coffee in a mason jar with a tight lid on a cool shelf in the pantry is a wonderful way to keep it palatable for up to a month.

Ever purchase ground coffee in the store, open the can, take a whiff, and it smells wonderful? Inside of 24 hours that same can of coffee will not only lose potency but will smell like it’s been sitting there on the counter for months (a trained nose detects this after a little bit of practice). There are two basic reasons for this phenomenon:

1. The Chicago Coffee Shop is gleaned from poor quality beans to maximize the profit margins of the mass producing retail market industry. These coffee beans are either low-quality arabica beans, or they are robusta beans, which are like a weed in the coffee world.

2. The coffee was roasted months ago; vacuum sealed, and the quality of the fresh roasted coffee beans is broken down significantly. This is done to meet mass demand in a hurry.

Here is a video on how they package coffee:

DreamTown Real Estate Company Review


Dream Town Logo

My family and I recently went on a house hunt for a vacation home in Chicago when I came across Dreamtown real estate company. They are extremely helpful when it came to choosing the homes I wanted. My family and I were thrilled to get the type of house I was looking for through them. They were extremely professional and at the same time helpful. In fact, they know what each of their clients wants. I didn’t have to explain much and they knew what I was looking for. This is extremely helpful for a person who does not know what they want until they see it!

Dream Town Chicago Real Estate

Why are they the best?

The Dreamtown Realty has over 73,000 Chicago home listings, so picking one wasn’t difficult. In fact, due to so many options, any client is bound to get their dream home. Interestingly, the company provides a homebuyers guide. I just needed to fill it up with my details and a representative got in touch. The company also provides stepwise assistance such as market analysis, understanding your need and finally offering you the best option. Above all, they have a team of ABR or Accredited Buyer’s Representative who are the best you can get. In addition to the ABR, they make an effort to match you with your representative who helps you from the beginning to the end until you buy your dream home.

Real Estate Agent: Johnny Phan

The representative that was assigned to me was Johnny Phan. I was extremely satisfied because he was undoubtedly the best person for the job. Being a resident of Chicago he knew the place very well and that helped me a lot since I was out of town. Over time he has adapted to my taste for certain homes and eventually found us the perfect one! He has joy and pride in the work he did and it showed in the results of his hard work. He even showed me several options, which were better than what I was expecting to get. You can check out his site at: www.johnnyphan.com

In the end, my family and I were able to get the vacation home that we wanted and we give the credit to Johnny Phan at Dreamtown Realty!

The Beauty of Chicago’s Millennium Park

Chicago-bean-329248 1280-2

On your first visit to the park, I encourage you to stop by the Millennium Park Welcome Center. It’s located at 201 E. Randolph Street in the Northwest Exelon Pavilion. The Welcome Center can provide you with information about the park, including maps and program schedules.

Once at the park, you are welcome to wander around at your pace, or you can take advantage of one of the several tours offered by the park. One option is a self-guided Millennium Park audio tour, which is available for rental in the Chicago Shop at the park. You can also download the tour to your MP3 player. Another option is the informal walking tour provided by The Millennium Park Chicago Greeters. These tours are available every Wednesday – Friday from 10 am – 4 pm, during the summer season. The free, 45-minute tours are intended for individuals or small groups. Millennium Park Greeter tours are seasonal and not available October 1 through April 1.

Chicago’s remarkable Millennium park is more than just another city park. It is a celebration of landscape design, architecture, and sculpture which has already won numerous awards. If you plan on shopping along Chicago’s famous State Street, the park is just a few blocks east and would be a great end to a day of shopping and sightseeing in Chicago. It’s open daily from 6 am – 11 pm and admission are always free.

One of the great things about Millennium Park is that the entire park is accessible to people with disabilities. Free Wheelchair rental is available at the Welcome Center, and special provisions have been made throughout the park for visitors with different disabilities.

Here are a couple of free attractions available at the park for you to enjoy:

1. The designed Jay-Frank Gehry Pritzker Pavilion. The Pritzker Pavilion is home to free concerts and events throughout the year.

2. The Crown interactive Fountain by Plensa Jaume. This is probably my favorite addition to the park. The fountain consists of 2 fifty-foot glass block towers which display images and video.

3. The Lurie contemporary Garden. This beautiful public garden was designed by the team of Kathryn Gustafson, Piet Oudolf, and Robert Israel. The garden is always evolving and changing throughout the year, however, it’s most colorful time begins in June and lasts throughout autumn.

4. The Millennium Park Ice Rink, which is located directly next to the Park Grill. The ice rink is open from mid-November through mid-March. Obviously, weather permitting. During warm-weather months the Ice Rink is used as a 150-seat outdoor dining area.

5. Don’t forget to check out Anish Kapoor’s hugely popular Cloud Gate sculpture on the AT&T Plaza. It’s better known as “The Bean.” Trust me; you’ll understand why when you see it.

After exploring the park and all, it has to offer you might get a little hungry. Don’t worry. Millennium Park Chicago has several dining options. You can find refreshments available for purchase on the east and west sides of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and at concession carts located around the park.

At the end of the day, don’t forget to visit the City of Chicago stores where you can get official Millennium Park and Chicago souvenirs, including hats, T-Shirts, towels, pins and more.
