Kevin O'Neil, CTA Tattler blogger, has been hanging around:

Morse and Glenwood I've been enjoying the Rogers Park Morse/Glenwood entertainment corridor lately. The recent opening of MorseL restaurant was the capstone of a true neighborhood renaissance.

You can eat a variety of food at almost a dozen restaurants in a two-block radius from the Morse el station. There's Los Portales for Mexican, Act One Cafe for American fare, the storied Heartland Cafe, and various burger and Asian restaurants. Then catch a Jefferson Award-winning show at Lifeline Theatre or Theo Ubique.

After the show, have drinks at Chuckie's, the Sidecar Bar, the Glenwood, Heartland Cafe's Buffalo Bar, or the bar in Act One Cafe. Or catch some late-night music at the Mayne Stage, Red Line Tap, or a special musical act at the Sidecar.

Best of all, it's all within walking distance of the newly rehabbed Morse CTA Red Line station.
