A-frame sandwich board sign for Vinnies Pizza, with yellow and black pizza symbol, N Ivanhoe St.
Vinnies is this hole-in-the-wall pizza joint that I don’t know how exactly they stay in business, but they’re local and they deliver so we try to order from them a fair amount of the time if we’re ordering pizza.  Cheese and pineapple, just about the perfect thing with a cold beer and they’re prompt as hell about getting it to the house.
The send out menu mailers every few months with coupons inside that I mostly just can’t bring myself to use because the pizza’s already nice and cheap.

Sign for Christmas tree lot, “SET GIRLS FREE - BUY A TREE”, N Lombard St.
I only caught a could of stitches of conversation between a tree shopper and one of the folks working the lot; the latter sounded like he was explaining the situation to the former, definitely used the phrase “sex trafficking”.
