    Seriously scary
    Something wicked this comes ... it's the cold chill down your spine, the little hairs on your arms suddenly standing at attention, the throb of terror in your veins. With Halloween quickly approaching, area haunted houses are creaking open their doors and letting loose the tortured souls that have lain in wait these last 11 long months.

    The Best 'Anti-Brunch' Breakfast Spots In Chicago, Where You Can Eat All Week
    fullscreen By Michael Gebert One of the questions I get as a food writer is, "Where's a good place for brunch?" The answer is, I have no freakin' idea. When you have kids, the idea of lounging away 2-1/2 hours with food and cocktails starting at noon makes about as much sense as suggesting Napa wineries for a family vacation.

Package thieves again

Two adjacent buildings on the 1200 block of Addison had packages stolen last week from their porches. This is pretty brazen considering the amount of foot traffic there. Do we all need to get security cameras? Not that that would help after the fact..... Life in the big city.
