Time Out Chicago's 10-year anniversary

Time Out Chicago celebrates its 10th birthday with a look back at a decade of Chicago culture, from the careers of our most famous chefs to the many ways the city has changed—for better and for worse

Happy birthday to us! Time Out Chicago launched its print edition on March 3, 2005, with Redmoon Theater on its cover and a baby-faced Jens Lekman in its pages. Since then, Time Out Chicago has gone through some big changes, including switching to an all-digital format in 2013, and Chicago has transformed right along with it. Can you even remember a time before Brendan Sodikoff ruled the Chicago restaurant scene? Or when Lollapalooza was in its first year? Or when smoking was still allowed in Chicago bars? Jump in the not-so-way-back time machine with us and reminisce about the past decade.
