    Big Star Dropped Its Cash-Only Policy, But Many City Spots Are Holding Out
    CHICAGO - Big Star might have ditched its cash-only policy, but the city still has a lot of holdouts. The restaurant made the big switch and started accepting credit cards because guests wanted the change, technology has advanced and Big Star needed to move forward with the neighborhood, said Kim Lyons, a spokeswoman for Big Star.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • The cashless society gets lots of hype,
    But big banks get bigger with each card you swype.
    With interchange, assessment and transaction fees
    they'll skim 2% of the whole GDP.
    Put some cash in your pocket and don't be no chump.
    Make them work for their money like the rest of us humps

    Second City: The Next Generation
    Over the past few years Second City has lived in my mind as a stale representation of the comedy world. While I'll never deny the impact the theater/training ground had on some of my favorite talents, like Bill Murray and Chris Farley and the queen herself, Miss Tina Fey, the shows themselves haven't broken free of the same sort of Murray-Farley-Fey formula.
