Seven weeks in Chicago starting soon. Plz send restaurant recommendations. I can only eat at normal dinner hours Sunday & Monday nights (so Giant is out). Looking forward to getting to know this town a little better, I've only spent maybe 4 days here in my life.

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

Love Susana Mendoza

Rauner, talking about Mendoza

she is, she is such a puppet for Madigan. And, she, all she does is put out there baloney that he tells her to put out.


Mendoza responds

Sorry for the delay in paying attention to this. I was busy trying to manage through the backlog of unpaid bills that Gov. Rauner more than tripled since taking office.

On behalf of the 12 million+ people that I was elected to serve and to whom I am accountable, I am still waiting for Gov. Rauner to answer my question:

Why did you spend $2.8 billion in unauthorized spending and how much will your Rauner Tax cost the people of Illinois in order to pay for your deficit spending?

Focus. Governor. Focus.

man that line for hi-5 is so dumb. tried to go there once and only once, right when the doors opened, and was told it was a 2 hr wait. said "fuck that", promptly turned around, and went to Strings and had a great bowl there with zero wait as always. but i feel similarly about most Sodikoff "concepts"

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.
