    What we know about 'Divergent' filming in Chicago
    We know "Divergent" — the futuristic sci-fi flick starring Shailene Woodley ("The Descendants") and directed by Neil Burger ("Limitless") — will begin filming entirely on location in Chicago and at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios on the West...
  • Where to celebrate Mother's Day

    Where to celebrate Mother's Day
    Mother's Day is a little more than a week away, so if you haven't made brunch/dinner plans, it's time to get cracking. Here are a few suggestions to get you started. Allium. Mother's Day brunch seatings from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Expansive buffet with...
  • Thanks for going easy on me, Michael Clarke Duncan

    Thanks for going easy on me, Michael Clarke Duncan
    My first interview on the celebrity beat, in 2009, should have been a total disaster. I’d never spent an entire afternoon with an actor before and stupidly listened to another journalist who told me I shouldn’t write down notes or tape-...
  • Let's take this outside

    Let's take this outside
    The heat of summer 2013 took its sweet time arriving this year, even though summer officially began only last week. But as anyone in Chicago can tell you, the weather doesn't have to be ideal to make outdoor dining appealing. Chicagoans, perhaps because...
  • Interview: Jenny McCarthy's VH1 talk show could eventually tape in Chicago

    Interview: Jenny McCarthy's VH1 talk show could eventually tape in Chicago
    Jenny McCarthy is a bit of a talker, so it would only make sense that the former “Singled Out” host and frequent “Oprah Winfrey Show” guest would be next in line for her own talk show. “The Jenny McCarthy Show” is set...
  • Ready, reserved

     Ready, reserved
    I have this problem. I made more New Year's Eve reservations than I can use. More than 100 of them, actually. Which is why, for the 12th straight year (and the 17th time in the past 19 years), I'll be giving them away to nimble-fingered readers who ask....
  • Summer Eating List

    Summer Eating  List
    Summer is the sweet season for restaurants. Fresh produce is abundant, daylight lasts longer and restaurants are busier and bigger (with the addition of outdoor seats) than at any other time of the year. So once again I'm trotting out my Summer Eating...
  • The lonely passion of Harry Bosch

    The lonely passion of Harry Bosch
    I've seen him. Really. I'm not crazy. I'm not a liar. And I swear to you: I've seen Harry Bosch, the hero of Michael Connelly's brilliant, best-selling and melancholy-drenched mystery series. What's that you say? Bosch is a fictional character? -----...
  • Breaking the silence

    Breaking the silence
     My father told me little about his agonies in the Holocaust. He never mentioned the beatings he suffered in various concentration camps starting in 1942, nor the death march he survived in January 1945, en route to Buchenwald.   For nearly the...
  • 'The Illustrated Press: Chicago' renders news

    'The Illustrated Press: Chicago' renders news
    To Darryl Holliday, comics journalism descends from cave paintings: Cave of El Castillo. And then Lascaux. And then "The Illustrated Press: Chicago." Cave paintings are "nonfiction visualizations of what was really happening in those people's lives at...

  • Eboo Patel explores religious pluralism

    Eboo Patel explores religious pluralism
    Eboo Patel is an idealist. A hopeless romantic. A dreamer. The Chicago-based founder of the Interfaith Youth Core and one of President Barack Obama's faith advisers doesn't believe people of different faiths should just all get along. They should work...
