The "Curl Up and Dye" hairstylist shop was on Clark or Lincoln Streets (one of diagonal streets) just south of Wrigley in Chicago.  And it was still there the last time I visited.  No clue if it is still in existence.

Tequila Mockingbird - bar/tavern

One that made me laugh was "Tequila Mockingbird."

Sounds like a great name for a bar, both funny & clever at the same time  ...

Especially if their Margaritas are something to write home about as well!  :)
