    Bite: A Pucking Queer Cabaret, Squeeze My Cans, and ten more new stage shows
    Midsommer Flight's As You Like It is outdoor Shakespeare done the old-fashioned way, complete with Elizabethan costumes and musical interludes. The banished duke's daughter, Rosalind (Emily Demko), and her sisterly cousin, Celia (Charlee Cotton), flee the frigid atmosphere of court for a life of revelry and disguise amid the forests of Arden.

    And the hundreds at Loyola Park had a wonderful time and gave the cast a standing ovation.

    Too bad for the torrential downpour tonight for those who planned to attend the 2nd night.

  • Yea, Gabriel. Alderman chubby tried to take credit with his "join me" routine. Again. Hopes it will make It seem like he does something besides collect a paycheck.

Lost Cat Found, Owners Share Tips On Luring Wayward Pet — Hint: Popeyes

They grabbed a bag of cat treats, hopped on their bikes and conducted a search of the area around their home near Rockwell and Lawrence.

    Lost Cat Found, Owners Share Tips On Luring Wayward Pet - Hint: Popeyes
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Just to reassure our readers at the outset, this story about a missing cat has a happy ending. But the saga started with a tabby named Graham busting out of an open, second-story window, dropping to the sidewalk below and making a run for it while his owners slept.

    Boo-Il Galbi is one of Chicago's last great Korean barbecue joints
    I know I've whinged quite a bit over the years about the declining quality in Korean restaurants in the city over the years, largely in part due to the slow evacuation of Koreatown's inhabitants for the suburbs.

    Living in Illinois can be super stressful. From the outrageous budget impasse and endless political corruption to sluggish job growth and the highest-in-the-nation property taxes, there are plenty of reasons to pull your hair out - if you haven't already lost it. Of course, life in general is stressful.
