Tween Fashion Frankie's on the Park Coming to Southport

Lincoln Park and Santa Monica, CA's Frankie's on the Park, a tween fashion store is coming to 3708 N. Southport Avenue, across the street from the new Coalfire Pizza and next door to Subway.  You can read more about Frankie's here from their website.

From Crain's Chicago Business:
Frankie's on the Park, a boutique marketplace for tween and teen girls, is opening its second Chicago store in September at 3708 N. Southport Ave. in Lakeview. Founded by Lisa Burik in 2008, Frankie's on the Park also has locations at 2322 N. Clark St. in Lincoln Park and in Santa Monica, Calif. Crain's Chicago Business reported on Frankie's in a 2010 story about entrepreneurs serving the tween market.
Think this will be a good addition to the neighborhood?

Lincoln Hub's bollards keep getting smashed

Another day, another bollard (or three) knocked down at the Lincoln Hub (and as you can see, no one is sitting in front of Pockets on this perfect August day).  Wonder how much this will cost to fix each time?
