What happens when the government shuts down and you’re put on furlough? Well, events might unfold like this…
How do you judge the sequel to Chicago’s most beloved burger place? Do you compare it to its predecessor? Judge it as its own entity? Not bother writing a review at all? That’d be nice. Anyway, for those of you who don’t know, Kuma’s Too, which opened in February, is the little sibling to Kuma’s Corner.
Thanks to recent headlines, you’d think the FBI rolled out the red carpet and handed Chicago a beautiful, hand-engraved (in cursive!) plaque that reads Murderiest Murder City in Murderland. In reality, the FBI did no such thing. Here’s a closer look at the FBI’s statistics and how they do and do not relate to homicides in Chicago
Born on June 13th, Brookfield Zoo’s snow leopard cub made it’s debut this Wednesday, September 18th. When we last checked in with the cub in August, it weighed 10 pounds. It’s now a whopping 15 pounds and growing. You can see the cub with his mother, Sarani, and father, Sabu, in Brookfield Zoo’s “Big Cats” exhibit.
The foremost beer experts helped make a list of the 20 best beers not in a single city, or state, or even country, but in the world. And Chicago’s Goose Island was on it!
It’s a feeling most dog owners experience at one point or another: the fear of losing your pup. Thankfully, the poster for the lost dog above, which has been appearing all over Chicago, is (obviously) fake.
Chicago Flag Tattoos, a local website that celebrates Chicagoans brave enough to get Chicago literally inked onto their skin, knows how to celebrate the “City of the Big Shoulders.”
After stepping off a plane at O’Hare, where do you imagine someone visiting Chicago might want to visit? Willis Tower, Millennium Park… an outlet mall? Fashion Outlets of Chicago, having their Grand Opening August 1st – August 4th, probably wants you to choose the latter.
While doing an interview with WXBR 1460 AM, Ted Nugent had more than a few things to say about Stevie Wonder’s recent boycott of Florida over the George Zimmerman verdict, along with the number of homicides in Chicago.
Even some good singers will screw up their performance by standing still as a statue (but not one a those hot nude statues people label as “art” — like a scary gargoyle statue). Great, you sing well, but who cares? A drunk, chatty karaoke audience will happily ignore you, good voice or not, if you’re not animated enough.
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.
