Where do cheaters live in Chicago? Apparently, Lincoln Park, according to AshleyMadison.com, the extramarital dating site that has the slogan: "Life is short. Have an affair. " The site has been around for 10 years and counts over nine million members in the U.S. "Before Ashley Madison, affairs were happening. I didn't invent that," said CEO Noel Biderman. In fact, he was engaged (and is now married) when he came up with the idea to connect unhappily married men and women to a virtual place where they could seek out an affair with likeminded people and be...

Jennifer Solberg had a good reason to reschedule our morning photo shoot at Rhine Hall, the West Town distillery she owns with her father, Charlie. She had to make an emergency trip to Michigan to pick up 7,300 pounds of Gala, McIntosh and Cortland apples from Bixby Orchards, load them into an 18-foot truck and make it back to Chicago before noon. If she didn't pick up the fruit, Rhine Hall wouldn't be able to distill any apple brandy that week. Solberg's willingness to do any job--even driving across state lines at 4 a.m. in a downpour--is indicative of the all-for-one work ethic that's turned her...

So, I had a tryst with a married man. I thought better of it eventually and ended it, but his wife still found out. And recently, she wrote me an email. I don't know his wife at all. What is my responsibility here? Do I write her back? Should I stay the f**k out of it (even though clearly I'm already involved)? - Conflicted Ex-mistress Stay out of it. No good could come from corresponding with his wife, and it will further complicate an already messy and fraught situation.

Poutine may be a Canadian invention, but Chicago certainly has embraced the gravy-and-cheese-topped French fry dish. So much so, in fact, that the city is welcoming its first Poutine Fest in February. Put on by three Chicago poutine enthusiasts, the Feb. 24 festival will bring together chefs from all types of restaurants - from gastropubs such as  The Gage to fine-dining spots such as  El Ideas - for an indulgent, gravy-soaked throwdown. "Having so many restaurants involved allows them to put their own spin on it," said one of the organizers, Melissa Karlin , adding that...

If Valentine's Day isn't shaping up to be an affair to remember, you can always, well, have an affair to remember. More than 175,000 Chicagoans are members of Ashley Madison , a controversial dating Web site that caters to people in relationships interested in adultery. The service boasts more than 12.6 million members.

A few days ago, Kim Kardashian tweeted this:   This video, a scrapbook of clips put together by something called " KimKanyeKimyeFC " is the video equivalent of when you used to write "Mrs. _____  _____" (Feel free to write in whatever longstanding crush-turned-guy who still lives at home in the blanks)  on your notebooks and backpacks in middle school. It's a chronological look at the love affair of Kim and Kanye and is kind of ... sweet? Watch the vid below and check it out for yourself.

The cast and crew of "Betrayal" may be filming the ABC potboiler in Chicago, but it hasn't been all work for some of them. "It's crazy cuz every place stays open so late," Henry Thomas told me during a Sept. 23 premiere party at Vertigo Sky Lounge. "It's a real bar culture. It's a little too easy to go, 'Oh my God, it's 3 o'clock in the morning. I've walked across the bridge going, 'Oh no, we have to police ourselves.'" Thomas plays TJ Karsten in the series, which has the unfortunate premiere slot of 9 p.m. CT...

We get duel love stories in the next "Once Upon A Time. " Airing at 7 p.m. Feb. 19 on ABC, "What Happened to Frederick" finds David (Josh Dallas) being forced to decide between Kathryn (Anastasia Griffith) and Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin). He finally agrees to tell Kathryn about his affair with Mary Margaret, but an earlier promo for the episode shows Regina (Lana Parrilla) telling Kathryn the news. They're could be some slapping and hair-pulling in Storybrooke, folks. And also some flirting.

** (out of four) At some point in their lives, everyone believes they should follow the “signs” that the universe presents and see where they lead. That's still what 30-year-old, mom's-basement-dwelling Jeff (Jason Segel) thinks, and that philosophy leads him on a wild escapade around Baton Rouge where his brother (Ed Helms) suspects his wife (Judy Greer) is having an affair. The guys' mom (Susan Sarandon) also wonders which work colleague is sending her instant messages, claiming to be her secret admirer.

** (out of four) There's no denying the community flavor of “Mad Men” co-star John Slattery's directorial debut. Adapted from Pete Dexter's novel (Slattery also co-wrote the script), “God's Pocket” takes place in the titular Philadelphia neighborhood, whose label isn't used as a compliment. The town's got a chip on its shoulder and dirt under its fingernails. What happens there, however, is all over the place. Mickey (Philip Seymour Hoffman, in one of his final roles)
