Jimmy Buffett's Broadway-bound 'Margaritaville' offers a perfect escape

Location: The Oriental Theatre, 24 W. Randolph St., Chicago, (800) 775-2000, broadwayinchicago.com or escapetomargaritavillemusical.com

    Jimmy Buffett's Broadway-bound 'Margaritaville' offers a perfect escape
    If Jimmy Buffett fans have anything to say about it, his buoyant, Broadway-bound "Escape to Margaritaville" will run for years. The enthusiastic response to Wednesday's opening from Buffett's "phlock" -- which is how his self-styled parrothead fans refer to themselves when two or more are gathered together -- suggests as much.

    The inaugural Chicago Art Book Fair isn't for art-book people-it's for everyone
    click to enlarge Colour Code Printing & Publishing When you hear the term "art book," what do you think? Do you imagine a gleaming, high-end store exclusively for sophisticates, academics, and design geeks? Do you reflexively visualize a heavy, clunky publication that never moves from the same spot on your living room table?
