Last night, the 16 cheftestants for "Top Chef: Texas" were finalized, and this season is 37.5 percent Chicago. That's right: All six of the Chicago-based chefs included in the group of 29 hopefuls made the final cast.   With five of the six Chicago chefs having completed their first round of competition in the first episode, our eyes were on remaining local chef Beverly Kim from Aria in last night's second episode. Each chef in her group was asked to choose an ingredient to cook with, and each was secretly matched with a preparation time ranging from 20 to 60 minutes.

Jenna Compton has no TV. Her fridge contains Oscar Meyer turkey cold cuts, which she eats without bread or condiments. And her expensive gym membership has been abandoned in favor of a community workout center. It's safe to say the 26-year-old Andersonville resident is light-years from being a millionaire. But she has one thing in her pocket - an idea - that she's really hoping to cash in on. Compton, a freelance graphic designer with plans for a social media website, joins a burgeoning crowd of digital pioneers with their eyes set on becoming the next startup success in Chicago.

Remember when your mom had a no-texting policy at the dinner table? Mine still does, and it doesn't matter how much I try to explain "I'm just tweeting!" to her - it's "rude" to click away on your phone with friends or family. So I'm pretty sure she'd vomit from anger if she heard about the latest trend in tweeting-on-location. Theaters and performing groups around the country have been setting aside "tweet seats" for audience members to freely tweet throughout performances. The groups include everything from the Carolina Ballet in Raleigh, N.C., and the Dayton Opera in Ohio...

Boy, I would love to write a nice, poetic obituary for the Bulls. You know, it would talk about how much effort they gave, how much they hustled, how they shared the ball, how they lost their major stars and went on and had a great season and postseason. That, my friends, is the difference between Hollywood and Chicago. In Hollywood, the Bulls go on and have a deep run in the playoffs, maybe win the title through the magic of Tom Thibodeau's coaching. No. in Chicago, we live in the real world.

When Write Club founder Ian Belknap was offered the opportunity to curate and host the free Live Lit on the Lake series as part of Chicago Park District's Theater on the Lake program, he immediately set three criteria: to balance the approach with both narrative-focused arts and essay, to represent the diversity of gender and cultural perspectives in Chicago's live lit scene and above all, to showcase the highest caliber writer-performers he's observed...

John Lehr and Nancy Hower didn't know a lot about Westerns when they embarked on writing their new Hulu comedy, "Quick Draw. " But they dug up comedy gold while researching the Old West. "It's amazing the stuff that never made it into the Westerns because it was so ridiculous, but it was actually true," Northwestern grad Lehr said by phone from L.A. last week. "We stumbled upon this steam-powered vibrator from the 1800s that I was just like, 'You got to be kidding me!' No, absolutely true.
