    It's never too late to try something new, right? Well, that's the premise behind the gamut of adult education classes available around the city. And that's why we've rounded up a list of some of our favorite places to try new things around Chicago.

  • Try Big City Swing for fun on a "first Friday" each month. East/West Coast Swing are among my personal dances and the music is terrific. It's a fun evening and people are friendly. Go alone or take a friend. And, you'll see some terrific dancers who "jive" like they're from the 1940's-50's. I just grin and watch them (no jive anymore for me with cartilage worn out!)

More Cyclists Ticketed For Running Red Lights in Wicker Park Intersection

WICKER PARK — An unseasonably warm morning on Thursday saw more cyclists than usual traveling through Wicker Park's busy six-way Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues intersection, where police have been known to ticket cyclists for running red lights.

On Thursday, at least five cyclists were slapped with tickets for running red lights in the 1600 block of North Milwaukee Avenue, according to a Logan Square resident who was commuting to his job Downtown and says he and four others received tickets around 8:15 a.m.

  • Trump is tough? Give me a break! He's been insulated by his wealth for hi whole life! Or do you really think it was heel spurs that kept him from going to 'Nam? Which leg was it again, I don't recall. If you believe that, you've got bigger problems than worrying about tiny segments of the population agitating for their 14th amendment rights.

    Alan Snipes -- I'm of the same generation as you and demonstrated against the Viet Nam war. While I agree that it wasn't student demonstrations that stopped the war, the concern of the party in power that the US was becoming ungovernable played some role. An interesting Slate article on the topc from 2007.http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/history_lesson/2007/01/how_vietnam_really_ended.html

    That being said, I would never tell a young person now to just give up and get new reps elected in 2018, essentially saying to go lick your wounds. The women's suffrage movement, the civil rights movement, among others, all attest to the importance of individuals being involved in politics, locally and/or nationally. There are too many of our rights as well as critical programs at risk to be silent. Shortly after November 8, three of our local state reps hosted a panel discussion to an overflow crowd of aobout 350 in an auditorium designed for 200, with speakers from the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and immigration and LGBTQ rights groups. The take away from the state reps is anytime you have an issue, call your representatives to ask them to vote your way. Petitions and email are mostly useless and snail mail is often not timely, but the staff have to talk to you when you call. In Chicago, many of us have state and national congresspeople that are sympathetic to our views, but there are ways to contact others who aren't 'on our side'. .Note also that some former congressional staffers have produced a guide to making an impact, and ironically, used the tea party's development as an example of effective organizing.

    The builders of 1748 West Cortland Street must have had a crystal ball that predicted Bucktown real estate's desirability when they erected the 2,200-square-foot house in 1890. They designed it with the potential to expand upward in an area where space is now a hot commodity; the neighborhood's median price per square foot has increased from $115 to $235 over the past five years, according to Redfin data.
