    A Guide To The Mass Of Protests & Actions On Inauguration Weekend
    Photo: Tyler LaRiviere Soon it becomes official. Donald Trump will be sworn as the 45th president of the United States on Friday. When he assumes the office, he'll be theleast popular incoming Commander in Chief in nearly four decades-a fact clearly borne out locally by the ever-expanding list of protests, demonstrations, walkouts, fundraiser performances and workshops that organizers are launching this weekend in Chicago.

  • Michael Archangel Same swamp but now restocked with new predators!

    @Pedro Garciano - Why does it matter that they do not like the outcome? Can they change the outcome by protesting?

    So, it should not matter to you since your guy won...right?

  • Another patently false and utterly ridiculous statement, JJ. Keep up with the "you people" and "they" remarks. You are only labeling yourself.

    Does this place even have a permit to operate? Does it have a current liquor license? Is it still Tip Top? Last week it was announced it had closed. Brown paper came off the windows Sunday night and suddenly crowds showed up... Eater Chicago announced a new chef...but not a new opening...
    As an aside, cars parked illegally in front of venue blocking thru traffic on a 2 lane street!
    Just wondering...

Alyssa Panozzo, 28, of Riverside, teaches a kickboxing class at iLoveKickboxing, 1720 W. North Ave., Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016. | Ashlee Rezin/Sun-Times

    Kickboxing can benefit all fitness levels, many weight loss goals
    It's no secret that working out can be an opportunity to vent frustration and stress. It's a benefit that comes with all types of exercise, but some types of workouts lend themselves better to emotional release than others. Kickboxing is one of those workouts.
