the Chicago heat map on eater is usually a good weekly resource

also you can go to City Mouse for a Giant-adjacent menu from the same chef, they have all day hours since they are in a hotel

very into the idea of haisous Vietnamese.

I kick myself about this all the time but i really need to get out of my neighborhood more.

anyone watching Easy, season 2?
might be more cringe worthy from a Chicago perspective than the first season

I'm an extra in episode 2 so that's the only one I've watched. Definitely difficult at times.

the name dropping and wink winks seem to be way more obvious while at the same time skirting geographical constraints /actual everyday life in the city that is totally obvious to anyone who lives here, I can't figure out what season of the year this is supposed to be taking place in and also it's a little infuriating that everyone seemingly can afford to own houses in this show while working jobs that definitely don't correlate

the first episode is especially egregious with a couple where the dude works some non-descriptive cubicle job and Aubrey Plaza doesn't seem to have a job yet they live in easily a million dollar house in Beverly

i only saw the first season, but from what i remember it was basically "wahhhhh all these married couples in their 30s are bored with their sexual routine"

it was pretty bad, but i did get a kick out of seeing places i go or have been pop up. it's clearly forced but whatever

also the beer story line from the first season comes back with Dave Franco's character bitching about having to make IPAs with a Half Acre Pony in his hand totally eschewing that Half Acre is what is now because they sold a shit load of Daisy Cutter and likewise Revolution with Anti-Hero

I need to get a zipper replaced on ny winter jacket and fast. Any suggestions on a tailor or seamstress that can fix? I had a place in Pilsen but it is kind of far. Looking for Wicker Park.

Yeah I'm right in the Loop but it shouldn't be TOO busy of a time here so I can try to get out and explore (though I'd appreciate some dinner spots in that area for between-show breaks as well). I eat everything but my boyfriend is visiting and he's on more of a vegetarian bent than me. We ate at some incredible high end veggie places in Philly - does Chicago have anything comparable? Taking a few days off while he's here so I don't have to worry if they are closed on Mondays.

everything about easy is incredibly mediocre !!!! script, acting it was all bad. i appreciate the effort. i mean having an ep entirely spoken in spanish is a nice idea but thar was easily the worst script out if all of them. it feels like high maintenance without the support of a decent premise//interesting situations.

oof.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s schools chief “repeatedly lied” to investigators and engaged in a “full-blown cover-up” of behavior that he and the top attorney for Chicago Public Schools engaged in over the past 20 months, the CPS inspector general says in a report released Thursday.

In a blistering, 103-page document he sent Tuesday to the Chicago Board of Education, Inspector General Nicholas Schuler said he was “left with no recourse but to conclude” that the board should fire CPS CEO Forrest Claypool.
