23 guilty pleasures that every Chicagoan embraces

23 guilty pleasures that every Chicagoan embraces

It's no secret that Chicago is a pretty proud city (and hey, for good reason!). But even as we boast about our world-class dining scene, incredible museums and other noteworthy attractions, most Chicagoans are humble enough to acknowledge that—every once in a while—we also love to indulge in a guilty pleasure or two. Whether we're taking shots at Chicago deep dish pizza or staring mindlessly at every movie/TV show that's ever been set in our city, we can't help but get sucked into these guilty pleasures: Here are some of the biggest culprits. RECOMMENDED: The biggest lies Chicagoans tell themselves and others 1. Watching your neighbors duke it out via dibs. There’s gotta be a German word for that. 2. Bingeing all the terrible Netflix shows with scenes in Chicago. Emily in Paris? More like Emily in River North (For About Three Minutes). 3. Waiting in the obscenely long drive-thru line for Portillo's. Sometimes you've just gotta have those cheese fries. 4. Talking shit about Naperville. Lifetime residents and ex-suburbanites alike can agree on this one. 5. Dunking on deep dish. “It's just, like, a cheese casserole!” 6. Showing off Chicago attractions to visiting relatives. It's not like we'd ever go to Navy Pier for fun, but if Aunt Cathy from Iowa really wants to see it... bring on the Rainbow Cones and overpriced cocktails, baby. 7. Taking e-scooter joyrides. Yes, it's annoying when other people do this. No, that won't stop us from hopping on a Lime every once in a while when

10 things we can actually look forward to in Chicago in 2021

10 things we can actually look forward to in Chicago in 2021

After a year as tough as the one we just lived through, the arrival of 2021 offers some glimmers of hope. And while we're not out of the woods yet when it comes to the pandemic that's still wreaking havoc across the globe, there are some genuinely exciting things for (masked and socially-distanced) Chicagoans to look forward to in the coming months. Here's a look at some of the biggest arrivals, openings and other happenings that are scheduled to take place in Chicago this year—mark your calendars and let's hope for the best! 1. The high-tech ‘Immersive Van Gogh’ exhibition arrives Assuming that museums are able to reopen their doors in the coming months, the biggest exhibit of the year (that we know of!) will be wowing guests this February. "Immersive Van Gogh" comes from the Italian creative team that worked on the "Atelier des Lumières" exhibitions in Paris, using projectors to cover the walls of a gallery with animated versions of the Dutch painter's most famous works. The Chicago version of the exhibit is taking over the 35-foot walls inside the Germania Club Building in Old Town—and it's only the first in a line of high-tech shows that will be hosted in the space. 2. Southwest begins flying out of O’Hare Midway has long been the only Chicago airport where you can catch a flight on Southwest Airlines, but that's all about to change. On February 14, the low-cost airline will begin offering nonstop flights from O'Hare International Airport for the first time, with routes

This New Year’s Eve, we’re raising a glass to Chicago’s resilience

This New Year’s Eve, we’re raising a glass to Chicago’s resilience

Before we say goodbye and good riddance to 2020, we'd like to propose a toast. This year was devastating for so many Chicagoans, but over the past 12 months, our hearts have swelled with pride as we've watched our city rally against the odds. It's been far from easy—and we still have a ways to go—but there's a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel. We'd be remiss if we didn't salute the folks who have made Chicago a better place along the way. RECOMMENDED: Time Out's Love Local campaign champions small businesses Throughout the year, we've witnessed locals come together to share food and everyday necessities, raise money for Black-owned restaurants and support out-of-work musicians. Even in the depths of the state's stay-at-home order, Chicagoans ordered takeout and delivery and shopped local every chance they got. They stood up for each other by flooding city streets in protest of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other Black people who were killed at the hands of police. And then there are the businesses themselves—the lifeblood of Chicago—that have kept us nourished, entertained and inspired despite the challenges stacked against them. They handed out free meals, put on virtual events and flipped their business models upside-down. "Thank you" doesn't even begin to cut it. As we contemplate the new year in Chicago and ring in 2021 from home, we feel hopeful about the eventual return of the things we love: art, food, culture and travel. We'll conti

Psst! You can now reserve a table at Time Out Market Chicago.

Psst! You can now reserve a table at Time Out Market Chicago.

There's a lot of things to worry about these days, but finding a table at Time Out Market Chicago shouldn't be one of them. That's why—for the first time ever—we're rolling out reservations for indoor and outdoor dining. Yes, that includes the massive sidewalk patio out front. And because we've reconfigured every dining space with the latest social distancing guidelines in mind, you never have to worry about brushing shoulders with nearby parties. To make a reservation, simply tell us your name, digits and email address and decide when you'd like to dine. Time Out Market Chicago is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9pm, Friday from 4 to 10pm, Saturday from 9am to 10pm and Sunday from 9am to 9pm. We'll even let you select where you'd like to sit—from the first-floor patio to the main dining room to the wraparound second floor. (Our favorite seats in the house are upstairs, where you can get a bird's-eye view of the action.) We collect a $15 deposit per person, which is returned to you upon arrival in the form of a TOM card, the equivalent of Monopoly bucks at Time Out Market—you can use the card to shop any of our vendors or bars. Parties are capped at six people per table in accordance with city guidelines. Once you've made your reservation, start browsing what's for dinner: Time Out Market has eight kitchens, including Arami, Dos Urban Cantina, Duck Inn Dogs and Mini Mott. A bar on the first floor serves cocktails, beer and wine, and the third-floor rooftop deals in view

When will Chicago hair salons reopen and what will it be like to get a haircut?

When will Chicago hair salons reopen and what will it be like to get a haircut?

Put down the scissors and step away from the at-home dye kit. Chicago salons could reopen in Phase 3 of Mayor Lori Lightfoot's five-step plan to ease out of the statewide "stay-at-home" order. Starting no sooner than the end of May and dependent on how effectively the city can curve the spread, Phase 3 will "cautiously reopen" the city, allowing some appointment-only services to resume. It's worth noting that Chicago is currently in Phase 2 of the plan, dubbed "stay-at-home." Still, with the tentative date looming just weeks away, salon and barbershop owners across the city are preparing for the possibility that they could reopen sooner rather than later. At Bronzeville Barber Salon, owner Andre Love says that he's in a good place to reopen when the city gives him the go-ahead: He already has a reservation system in place to control the number of people in his shop and his professional training has equipped him with advanced knowledge of cleanliness and sanitation. He already wears personal protective equipment when working on clients. The one thing he's still trying to wrap his head around is how he'll maintain social-distancing guidelines in his small, eight-seat shop. "If I was to downsize, I might have to give up three stations to follow social distancing. That's the biggest thing," Love says. At Logan Square's Logan Parlor, owner Jamie DiGrazia has come to terms with concessions her business will have to make to safely reopen. Several chairs have already been removed to

16 things Chicagoans will try not to complain about once the shutdown is over

16 things Chicagoans will try not to complain about once the shutdown is over

No matter how much you love the city you call home, it's always easy to find something to complain about. Whether it's unreliable public transit, a long wait for a table at your favorite restaurant or the putrid scent wafting out of the alley behind your apartment, Chicagoans love to grumble about the downsides of life in our Midwestern metropolis. But after being locked down in our apartments during the Illinois "stay-at-home" order, we've all gained some perspective on the things we used to whine about constantly. In fact, there are a few things we'll do our best to never again complain about (audibly, at the very least) once this is all over. 1. Waiting in line for a porta-potty at a street festivalWe’ll be happy for the chance to pee in something that isn’t our home toilet. 2. Having to wait an extra 10 minutes for the busThe bus tracker is back to its usual antics, but at least we get to enjoy some fresh air. 3. Pulling up a stool next to a couple on an awkward first dateMiraculously, months spent in isolation have us craving plodding conversations between strangers about jobs, college and vacations. 4. The loud groups of Cubs and Sox fans on the Red LineAt least baseball, ballpark hot dogs and 7th-inning–stretch sing-alongs are back! 5. The crowds of tourists jockeying for selfies around the BeanAfter looking at Instagrams of folks stuck inside over the past few months, it's great to see some outdoor scenery. 6. The three-hour wait for a table at Au ChevalSure beats the

  シカゴのノース・ミシガン・アベニュー646に、スターバックスの新たな大規模店舗、スターバックス・リザーブ・ロースタリー・シカゴが2019年11月15日(金)にオープン予定だとシカゴ・トリビューン紙が報じた。 建設されるのは、以前インテリアショップ のクレイト&バレルがあった、4万3,000平方フィートの敷地だ。4階建てで、この建物自体が観光名所となるような造りとなる。 店では限定のドリンクや、希少な豆、店舗内での焙煎(ばいせん)、スターバックスと提携するプリンチのピザやサラダ、デザートのフルメニューを提供する。また、地元住民をひきつけるため、シカゴで有名なバーテンダーのジュリア百瀬(オリオール、クミコ)や、アニー・ビービ=トロン(ファットライス)、レイチェル・ミラー(コミュニティ・タバーン)らが開発したカクテルも提供予定だ。 この種の店舗としては最大となるが、リザーブ・ロースタリー自体は新しいアイデアではなく、既にニューヨーク、シアトル、ミラノ、東京、上海でその店舗をオープンしている。私たちに馴染みの「街角のスターバックス」とは違い、ロースタリーは「コーヒーへの情熱に捧げられた劇場的で体感型の殿堂」である。 客はシングルオリジンコーヒーを飲み、バリスタに夢中になり、名物のカクテルやピザを口にしてから店を後にすることとなるのだ。 スターバックス・リザーブ・ロースタリー シカゴは、11月15日に開店。月曜から木曜の7時から23時まで、金曜と土曜は8時から24時まで、日曜は8時から22時まで営業する。   原文はこちら『The world’s largest Starbucks will debut on Michigan Avenue in November』

PAWS Chicago waives adoption fees this weekend as facility reaches max capacity

PAWS Chicago, the city's largest no-kill shelter, will host adoption events this weekend in hopes of relieving its maxed-out facility and freeing up space for incoming pets. The shelter will waive adoption fees for dogs and cats that have been in their possession the longest—eligible animals are identified on the PAWS website with yellow "Summer Lovin'" tags.  "Summertime is an exceptionally critical time of year in animal welfare," reads a PAWS media release. "With so many litters being born, in addition to the abundance of homeless pets in need of a loving home, even more animals are at risk of euthanasia in our community’s open admission shelters." The event will take place at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center (1997 N Clybourn Ave) on July 28 and 29 from 11am to 6pm daily. In addition to finding cats and dogs forever homes, organizers are also calling for foster families to provide temporary shelter for available animals. Ready to bring an animal into your life?
