    Raisu raises the bar for raw fish
    Ten years ago a friend came down with cholera after eating a malevolent oyster at Katsu. It happens. Despite this unfortunate event, the unassuming sushi bar on an unfashionable far-north-side street-which closes it doors at the end of the month after nearly 30 years in the business-remained in regular rotation among my pal's favorite restaurants.

    13 Chicago Tattoo Shops Offering Friday The 13th Specials
    CHICAGO (CBS) - While superstitious for some, it's a tattoo lovers holiday: Friday the 13th. Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day to most in the Western hemisphere. It occurs when the 13th day of the month falls on a Friday. The event occurs at least once every year, and sometimes up to three times a year.

  • Jeffrey Littleton 3rd Generation Uptown

    A friend of mine had two large tattoo removed from both arms with the laser method. It looks good, but results vary from person to person, tattoo to tattoo, body part to body part..
    Its worth a shot tell your friend, the results will be known fairly early in the process.

  • Deanna Remembers when EveryBlock was fun

    Inactive User - Speakeasy Custom Tattoo does tattoo removal. I've seen some of the removal work, and it looks good. They will be honest with you if they think your tattoo won't respond well to their removal system. It's not a fast process, and it's not pain-free, but it works.
