    Detroit-style pizza makes inroads in Chicago
    We all know how serious Chicago is about its pizza, but there's a relatively new type of pizza making inroads here: Detroit-style. It was created just a few years after Uno's launched deep dish here, and our Hungry Hound said the motor city's version has some similarities and some differences.

    Detroit style pizza looks like lasagna

    Chicago style pizza looks more like lasagna.

    (even bad pizza is good)

  • The article describes what I consider Detroit style well, but I don't know what that picture is.

    Experimental-metal mainstays Yakuza brings the gang together for a hometown show
    Chicago has always been a good town when it comes to producing homegrown metal bands-the south side rocked heavy in the 80s with the likes of Trouble, Cianide, and Macabre-but it didn't develop the international reputation it deserved until the 90s, when north-side postrock collaborators drew hipster attention.

Morning Commute Feeling More Crowded? Blue Line Sees Explosive Growth, Data Show

    Morning Commute Feeling More Crowded? Blue Line Sees Explosive Growth, Data Show
    Published today at 9:12 a.m. It's not just you. Blue Line trains along the O'Hare branch are getting more crowded during morning rush hour. Uber and Lyft have chipped away at CTA ridership overall in the last few years, but morning rush hour use (between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m.)
    http://www.chicagomag.com

  • bike traffic has definitely picked up during the summer. Certainly has dropped now that the weather has though. Something I hope the city and CTA take into consideration with the TOD push along the blue line.
    It be great if they started pushing TOD in areas where they need residents instead of areas that are in high demand

  • Anyone know if/when the blue line will ever get the new cars? They fit a lot more people a lot more comfortably.
