capucha: oliviaisferosch: M and I are at Lovely, and a group of boys next to us are playing a very strange game. Neither of us have any idea what it is. Square, gridded wood board, two players, each with a bag of small discs (one has white, one has black). They place them on the board in strange, random ways—-sometimes dominoes style, now in lines of black and white. Lots of talk of...
M and I are at Lovely, and a group of boys next to us are playing a very strange game. Neither of us have any idea what it is. Square, gridded wood board, two players, each with a bag of small discs (one has white, one has black). They place them on the board in strange, random ways—-sometimes dominoes style, now in lines of black and white. Lots of talk of “stalemates.” Ideas?

I might go to the Dunes with a group of ladiez for Labor Day (probably ill-advised, but last day of summer! beach! beer! throngs of people! woo!), and I am simply shocked at how many people have no knowledge of what I’m talking about. Even people who are from Illinois, or those who have lived here for 15 years still greet the idea with, “Dunes? What?” So, for the record. ...
I’ve had a rough week with some client issues, making me rather grumpy and mopey about some things. However, I have a shoot tomorrow morning, and rather than asking me to meet them in Lincoln Park or on LaSalle or by the bean or whatever, they’ve asked me to meet them at 18th and Blue Island. While all of those locales have their merit, it makes me exceedingly happy that I have been...

Chicago trend or young and indecisive trend?
I’ve lately realized that virtually everyone I’ve met that moved to Chicago with a significant other or “followed someone here” broke up with said person, often within an incredibly short time frame. Conversely, I do know two couples that moved out of the city to another locale and seem to be doing great. I wonder if there is something about Chicago that breeds this (I...
windycity: I’m turning 21 and I’m looking for two types of places: 1. a fancy place to go to dinner with my parents and sister, but doesn’t cost tons and tons of money. Can be a little pricey but not too much. Must have good food, it’s all about the food and the portions. The larger the portions the better. My father is a 250 pound Black man. We need the big portions. 2. a good dessert place...

M: you are always hungry
and in need of others to locate food for you
you really would have made a terrible hunter gatherer
How to Date a Blogger in One Step!
tylercoates: getupgetout: Don’t. Amen. Indeed. This is a deal-breaker.* *Deal-breaker if you blog about everything in your life, including details of your romantic exploits (Gawker, Jezebel-style. Or even just Blogger-style if you’re too overshary.)
Renew me, baby
One Bennett J. Johnson, III, budget director of the city, sent me a postcard today, telling me the following: Dear Business Owner, Tough economic times can make it difficult for you to meet your bottom line. As a business operating in the federally-designated Empowerment Zone/Renewal Community, you are entitled to tax credits that can positively impact your business. Considering that meetings...

I had a dream that I was working for Ashley Paige, the insufferable swimsuit designer who has a reality show on TLC (that I have never watched). I was working as an assistant, as was my friend Laura. Nina Garcia came into the showroom as we were getting ready for fashion week, and we were both admiring a big collar necklace. “I think this is really what Georgina Chapman [Marchesa designer]...
