A very knowledgeable man was collecting money on the beach today on behalf of Thresholds homeless veterans program. He knew a lot about it. He says he collects every Tuesday. Anyone know whether it's legit? I know Thresholds has such a program.

I went to Ino's Pizza on a Tuesday night, everything fine, no signs of shutting down... then the next day, a notice on the door saying thanks for all the patronage, we're closed for good. After my shock and disappointment, I thought at least the new Orlando Salon next door is still around, so there won't be four empty businesses in a row on this corner. I peek in there today, and everything's gone. Not even a sign on the door, barber pole still turning. Joel Hall's front door got smashed in last week, too, along with the window of the vacant shop next door. What the heck is up?

Longtime residents trace the influx of lesbian couples to one business: Women and Children First. The feminist bookstore moved from Halsted Street to 5233 N. Clark St. in the early 90s when Boystown became too expensive.
"There’s this hip quotient," said Hoffberg, President of Audience Logic, 5443 N. Broadway. "When I’m with old friends from growing up [in Winnetka], who remained up there, their favorite conversation is restaurants they’ve gone to in Andersonville. It’s hip to them."This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)
Women and Children First founders Ann Christophersen and Linda Boubon opened their original store at 922 W. Armitage Ave. in 1979, where they set out to "promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests."

There’s another option for lunch salads downtown. Sweetgreen (623 N. State St., River North, 312-374-8173), which gets you veggies in a fast-casual setting, has begun its Chicago takeover—on the heels of this first outpost’s opening, there’s already news of a second location coming to the West Loop.

To say that Cantina 1910 has had a wild ride since opening less than a year ago, seems appropriate. The much anticipated launch of the upscale Mexican restaurant at 5025 N. Clark St. back in September 2015, transformed the old T’s bar/restaurant into a new modern space. Though the restaurant gained quick praise from area food critics, the […]
