Here's what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- You may think your boss is tough. But has he or she been described as a "profane, hyperactive attack dog" with a "steamrolling personality"? No? Okay, then these six young staffers, who work for Mayor Rahm Emanuel, may have a more demanding boss than you do. But as these six twentysomethings tell writer Kalyn Belsha, Rahm is intimidating, but his ambitions match theirs.
- After 15 years dressing models, fashion designer Pamela Thompson must be kinda relieved to be creating ensembles for people who can't talk back: dolls. Thompson has turned her Deerfield basement into the playground of Tiny Frock Shop, an online marketplace for her thrifted and original Barbie clothes, whose styling is inspired by the latest runway looks.
