    Lillie's Q & Smoque BBQ bring Texas-style brisket to Chicago
    Memorial Day weekend means picnics of course, and for some, barbecue to go. Our Hungry Hound has been sampling some of the city's best recently, including Texas-style brisket, which he says is smoked to perfection at two local restaurants. On Friday, he checked out the fantastic rib tips and hot links at Uncle John's in Homewood.

Is 43 stories too tall for Fulton Market?

...saying it's too tall, among other things. At 495 feet, the high-rise at 170 N. Peoria St. would be the tallest structure in the Fulton Market District, dwarfing the historic low-rise...

Related Midwest also plans an even bigger tower on the eastern end of the Fulton Market District, at 725 W. Randolph St. That building, which would apartments and an Equinox hotel, would rise 670 feet, or 58 stories.

PICKPOCKETRY

This ancient art is enjoying a breath taking resurgence. Put your phone or wallet in your hip pocket and eventually you will lose them.

  • smith3 west loop

    Happened to me on the el platform at Morgan. A guy, walking his bicycle, "bumped" his bicycle into me as he picked my pocket!

  • Julio de la Rosa Malthusian Keynesian Democratic Socialist

    Whenever you are bumped or stopped for whatever unexpected reason, check you purse or wallet immediately. You may be able to get your money back. It has happened to me on the "L," on an escaltor and even a revolving door. Keep your wallet and your cash in separate pockets. And never keep anything of value in a hip pocket, no matter how tight your pants (Ladies).

    I went to the first one in 1980, when I worked in the Loop--I don't recall how much it cost except it was much cheaper, you could try a bigger variety before you either filled up or ran out of tickets, and much of what was there was unique. Great lunchtime alternative to the ubiquitous Loop cookie-cutter Greek "coffee shop" luncheonettes. On the last day I remember I had a 25-cent ticket remaining, it was warm out, and one of the vendors didn't want to cart perishables back. So I got a flat of 12 containers of strawberry Yoplait (a brand and style new to Chicago, which had only Dannon at the time), put it in the office fridge, and drove it home after work. (But to this day I can't stand strawberry yogurt),

    Nowadays, I go only when my knees can take standing around for hours and there's a musical act I want to go see. You have to jockey for a table to put your food & drink down while you stand, nearly half the items are fast-food from well-known restaurants available across the area year-round; and there are those stupid tickets! You can't buy only as many as you want, because the booklets contain odd quantities that are too few or too many. I end up either forgoing something I'd really wanted, compromising and eating something I wasn't really craving, or having leftover scrip to languish in a drawer (not knowing if they'd be usable next year) or to give to strangers. Last time we went (to see the Chieftains), so few items appealed to us that we actually ended up at a real restaurant in Millennium Park with normal portions, tables & chairs, metal utensils, glasses and servers. And we spent no more than had we eaten the same quantity of food standing up, spilling stuff on our clothes and sweltering,
