Well, that headline’s not exactly accurate. The more popular Burger King, home of the Whopper, isn’t allowed within a 20 mile radius of Mattoon, Illinois.
Poppy seed bun, yellow mustard, chopped onions, BRIGHT green relish, dill pickle IN THE SHAPE OF A SPEAR, tomato, peppers, celery salt. Oh! And the hot dog. Don’t forget the dog. Preferably Vienna.
The South Side is a gin cocktail with lotsa lemon and sugar, making it perfect for the summer (though I wouldn’t attempt to buy one at the lemonade stand on your block, kids are terrible at mixing drinks).
There have been many reactions to Saturday’s acquittal of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. Yesterday (July 16), Bruce Springsteen performed his own reaction in a way only Bruce Springsteen can: with a heartbreaking song.
Great food, including food trucks, is reason enough for most to attend the Taste of Chicago (going July 10 – 14). BUT, if you need more convincing, here’s a list of bands playing over the next few days.
I don’t begrudge Blackhawks fans their fun. Your team won! Awesome! You deserved the parade today. I am however afraid to leave my house tonight. It’s Friday. I deserve a drink. And I have no desire to walk into every neighborhood bar just to find it filled with red jerseys and drunken Hawks fans. Again, Hawks fans deserve their celebrations! But that doesn’t mean I have to celebrate with them.
Huey Lewis & The News is playing Chicago’s Montrose Beach for K-HITS Summer in the City concert. Don’t miss out! Find all the info you need to attend the show here…
Today, we’ll mostly hear funny anecdotes about the ineptitude of dads between all the compliments and high praise. Not from Louis C.K. though. He is tackling Father’s Day with the kind of honesty you only expect from, well, Louis C.K.
It seems like the Chicago Sun-Times has a new supporter of their decision to fire their photographers: Stephen Colbert. Of course, Stephen Colbert is one person whose support you don’t necessarily want.
This town is barely big enough for one malort (AKA the worst liquor in existence), let alone two. Do the crazies at Violet Hour care? No, they don’t. I tried their newly created R. Franklin’s Malort. And I survived to talk about it.
Headquarters Beercade, with it’s awesome drink selection and awesomerer arcade games, was already pretty… you know. awesome. Now, thanks to their expansion to include a “pinball alley,” they just got even more awesomererer!
The weekend! Let’s take a moment to breath it in. Okay, stop breathing, we don’t have time for breathing, we’ve got things to do. Here are three great things you can do this weekend…
Chicago is a city filled with great tacos! Here are three of the best taco joints in the entirety of the city. You’re welcome.
With such a great Latino community, it makes sense that Chicago would have a great Latino film festival. The 29th Chicago Latino Film Festival has started and features some of the best Spanish-speaking films in the world. So, you know, go check it out already!
Events! Winter has finally left Chicago and it’s time to go out, eat soup, watch movies about sex, drugs and rock and roll, and watch Shakespeare (the good kind).
Events for April 12th, 13th & 14th. Get off your butt and go see the best of what Chicago has to offer! Spaghetti wrestling, outsider art, awkward open mics and more!
It’s raining, it’s April, deal with it. Here’s some stuff to do so go do it! Ice cream! Hobbits! Books about sleeping! What else do you need?
Alright! Fine! If you HAVE to leave the house, here are some events you might want to attend. Don’t fall into an empty manhole or get attacked by a bear though…
We’re tired of you going to the “internet” when you need to learn about the “birds and the bees,” Libra. What can faceborg, googles or some new mobile app teach you that the bull, creepy twins, prude lady, invisible archer, or Simba can’t?
Look at the high and mighty Easter Bunny, for example! He’s become so powerful, nay, so power-hungry, that he actually believes the law does not apply to him. Well one day he’ll come crashing down, Virgo, and no one will benefit from that.
