What happens when your accidental sketch show becomes a surprise hit? For "Bye Bye Liver" writer-producer Byron Hatfield, the trajectory led - down a somewhat long and winding road - to opening The Public House Theatre. In 2006, Hatfield - a Tennessee native who moved to Chicago in 2002 post-college and soon after won a Babes With Blades theater company playwriting competition - contracted with Gorilla Tango Theatre to stage an original play, but ran out of time before he could complete it and instead mounted "Bye Bye Liver," an interactive drinking game-themed sketch show.

In his 15 years working at restaurants, Justin Vrany saw a lot of waste. “I've seen so much garbage go out the doors,” Vrany said. “It bugged me.” Vrany had always dreamed about opening his own restaurant, but he also wanted it to be sustainable. He achieved both goals at Sandwich Me In (3037 N. Clark St. 773-348-3037), the quick-serve BYOB sandwich spot he opened in Lakeview back in May. Food is served on trays lined with compostable parchment paper to cut down on the water used washing dishes and all of the fruit and...
