Was fortunate enough to snag an invitation to the beautiful opening soirée for Booth One before it opens to the public next week. This gorgeous new eatery used to be the legendary Pump Room, an establishment attracting hordes of celebrities since opening in 1938. Booth One is now owned by Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, and while it maintains a similar vibe as its predecessor, expect an inventive new menu under Executive Chef Rick Tramanto. I’m looking forward to returning soon. Photos by Matt Lowell

Sound artist John Wiese brings the noise with a sculptural touch that keeps listeners on edge

    Sound artist John Wiese brings the noise with a sculptural touch that keeps listeners on edge
    After years as one of the most prolific and unrelenting noise artists in the U.S., veteran LA experimentalist John Wiese seems to have deliberately altered his modus operandi. His discography lists more than 400 items under his own name as well as projects like Sissy Spacek, Leather Bath, and others, but over the last half decade his output has screeched to a near halt.

Opinions about the Mag Mile robberies?

I came here to see if there were any concerns & discussions about the recent Mag Mile robberies, esp. at the Water Tower watch shops and Mag Mile watch shops. I see there is no discussion, so I'm assuming anybody living in that area is not concerned?

  • Li: Thank you for your post. It concerns me and my family when there is crime in any neighborhood...especially violent crime...not just leaving items in your car and finding your window smashed. Answers seem to be very complicated. Attending local CAPS meetings to hear from the experts may be a start. Happy to hear if others have thoughts.

Chicago Housing Authority has such systemic corruption

There are so many people that need housing and the CHA won’t help their voucher holders, won’t help landlords. Complete waste of tax dollar money. They all point fingers at each other. It’s dreadful. Nobody wins when tax dollars are flushed down the toilet by the CHA.

  • Sherian Lazy right now!

    Have them try a building that lets anyone in it, 150 west maple street......

  • The problem is there are far too many voucher holders and not enough apartments. 150 maple is probably to capacity. Now I have to serve a 5 day notice on the CHA. Then I have to get the sheriff to serve eviction papers on the president of the CHA. Not for him, I’m sure he has a nice home but to my tenant who counts on CHA money.
