    Zanies launches yearlong 40th anniversary celebration
    Local comedy clubs come and go. And then there's Zanies. The Wells Street Zanies turns 40 this year, making it Chicago's longest-running comedy club. Zanies' St. Charles location, which opened in 1989, has the same distinction in the suburbs. So what accounts for that longevity?

    "Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Richard Lewis!" With those words, a shaggy-haired, 30-something comic takes the stage at Zanies on North Wells Street, offers a quick bow and scans a seemingly endless scroll of paper, as if cramming for a quiz he should have thought about last night.

Redesigned Old Town apartment project to be discussed at community meeting

The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, January 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the Latin School of Chicago at 59 W. North Avenue. The same project is also listed on the busy January draft agenda of the Chicago Plan Commission. The group is set to meet one week later on January 18th.

First revealed in late 2016 as a 14-story building containing 365 rental apartments, the mixed-use project at the corner of North and Larrabee was scaled back to 10 stories and 293 units. It was subsequently rejected in September due to lingering concerns over parking, traffic, and density.
