    Toast a michelada at a festival or a cocktail at a show, or perhaps attend a classic club night or a block party. Navy Pier also still has fireworks after the Fourth. Your call, Chicago. Wasting away in michelada-ville Summer, of course, is the time for cold beverages to shine.

Lost Cat, Pilsen (18th and Ashland)

I lost my cat, Squirrel Saturday afternoon. The door was left open during a move and she got out.

She was last seen by my apartment at 18th Street and Ashland in the Pilsen neighborhood.

She is a 6 year old female domestic long hair. She is grey with some cream, tan and white markings. She has green eyes and a tipped left ear.

She was timid and is still slow to warm to strangers but has really started to come into her own. I have had her as an indoor house cat for the past 5 years in Chicago. I assume with her behavior and personality that she is likely scared and hiding somewhere right now.

I am distraught over the whole situation.

  • I used to bang canned food around my home to find my guys if they got out. Try that, and call her, maybe you'll find her. Good luck!!

  • She is probably hiding somewhere nearby. Put out her litter box. When it is quiet, go out and call to her. She could also have gotten into an open garage so check with your neighbors. I am confident she will find her way home. My friend lost her cat the same way and she came home 28 days later.

  • So sorry that you lost your cat. I think that there are several facebook and other sites where you can post your pictures and see if someone has found her. If you need help with that, I am happy to search other threads for the links.

    Hope this helps.

Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours

“It was a happy summer vacation to play with old friends for three months and then be paid enough to feed most of Bosnia,” Bruford said in a 1995 Union-Tribune interview.

Speaking of food, in a 2004 Union-Tribune interview, Wakeman recalled the 1973 “Topographic Oceans” tour of England. During a long, keyboard-free segment at one show, he ate an Indian dinner at his keyboards — mid-concert — while the rest of the band performed.

    Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours
    Will the real Yes please stand up? Is it the Yes whose current concert trek is billed as "#YES50: Celebrating 50 Years of Yes?" That tour stops Sunday, June 24, at Pechanga Resort & Casino and includes two other Southern California dates by the pioneering English progressive-rock band.

    Thank you Cristina for putting this out there it's been dangerous working conditions for the employees but Corporate said they can still work! Sad isn't it? they are in air conditioning in their office comfortable. Walked in for 15 minutes and said no reason to close store here are portable a/c units and seeing ceiling collapsed and said just block it and tell customers don't go that way, unbelievable!

    Those are fire hazards. The place should be fined.
