Popular Boystown bar Sidetrack is in the midst of a face-lift. MainBar, of a few bars within Sidetrack, has shut off its signature pink neon light and now is covered in tarps and blankets.

Coming the second week in March from chef Michael Kornick and David Morton ( DMK Burger Bar , Fish Bar , pictured) is Ada Street , a neighborhood tavern with a focus on both after-work drinks and the late-night crowd. (Perhaps from the neighboring music venue Hideout ?) “It's really not even a restaurant; it's more of a tavern,” said Kornick in an audio clip offering his comments on the concept. While Kornick's other “little joints” -- Fish Bar and DMK -- focus heavily on beer, he says the cocktail menu at Ada Street will highlight wine and spirits, with former ...

You might not have plans to swing by a ritzy charity event at Bono's house for World AIDS Day Saturday, Dec. 1, but that doesn't mean you can't do your part from Chicago. Get tested, donate to a homeless youth shelter that helps LGBT young people with HIV/AIDS or attend a benefit for Chicago's transgender community: Options abound. Though there was a drop in new HIV infections during the past 10 years, roughly 34 million people have HIV in the world. Last year, about 2.5 million people became infected with the disease.
