    How Boeufhaus Went From Meaty Mystery To a Cut Above

One year later, in one of the most unlikely restaurant success stories, is a member of Chicago's 38 essential restaurants.

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.

    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    I doubt it because the insides of pipes probably got coated with sediment from many years of use and act as a insulator .

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • I bet those boys are loving this notoriety! Well, maybe not the "chubby" one.

  • I'm not sure these kids follow EB or DNAinfo.

    They might enjoy posted warning flyers taped up in relevant areas though. And other neighbors who aren't part of these conversations would probably also enjoy the warning, and the increased chance that someone will spot them and call it in.
