If you've been in Wicker Park recently, you may have noticed Milwaukee Avenue has been going through some major changes: multiple large tear downs and rehabs at Ashland (including the long defunct Arandas Mexican Food), Urban Outfitters has announced their impending arrival, and most recently the Ann Sather Swedish eatery collapsed. Apparently the construction crew working next door tore a hole in the building's wall, and as of this past weekend all that was left of the restaurant was a pile of rubble with the Ann Sather sign laying on top. The offending crew's name? Good Karma Construction.
