    Typical of the 'Chicago Defender', if you were to take the race card from them they would have very little to write about. To get a gist of what i'm referring to just scroll through their current series of articles. http://chicagodefender.com/ ie "Let’s Boycott Black Friday for Black People!", "100 Black Men of Chicago Statement on Ferguson Grand Jury Decision", "Telling People They Sound Racist Can Be Awkward. Here’s What You Should Do". etc

    @Todd Agosto - The Chicago Defender is nothing more than substitute for toilet paper.

Indulge all your Parisian fantasies at this frequently overlooked French boutique in the Palmolive Building. You may not be wintering in the South of France this winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t subtly imply that you are. 919 N. Michigan Ave., cop-copine.com

This well-curated Humboldt Park boutique sells everything from jewelry to bath products to mustache wax. You’ll find lots of design-y elements—it’s located in a refurbished hardware store, after all—and plenty of locally-made stocking stuffers. 2559 W. Chicago Ave., shopkomoda.com

...hand-knit fisherman sweaters, which have “Chicago winters” written all over them (figuratively, of course). 5202 N. Clark St., notre-shop.com
