Need to know how crowded John Barleycorn is right now? Or whether there are more women than men at Vertigo Sky Lounge? How about the average age of patrons at Schoolyard Tavern? If you're in Chicago, there's an app for that. SceneTap, a mobile and web application that launched in Chicago in July, uses cameras to gather information for its facial detection software, which provides real-time stats on the age, sex and number of patrons in more than 50 bars in Chicago.

As The National's Matt Berninger hit his stride in “I Need My Girl,” guitarist Aaron Dessner glanced to his right on stage. His young daughter, just south of two feet tall and wearing a pair of large, sound-dampening earmuffs, was drawing the only spontaneous applause during the band's intimate, 40-minute set. She was dancing. At River North bar Untitled, a rare place to see a major touring act, a crowd of no more than 125 attended the private show that preceded The National's headlining appearance at the Chicago Theatre Wednesday night, the group's second of four appearances there this week.

Got a few use-'em-or-lose-'em vacation days to burn before the calendar turns over to 2014? Besides sleeping in, having an extra cocktail the night before and watching trashy daytime television, you'll also be able to finally hit up those ever-so-elusive hot spots that are impossible to get into during peak hours.

An underwhelming lineup on paper provided a lot of highs in person--and several lows. These are the best and worst shows we saw this weekend. Best The Postal Service Second-to-last show EVER??? How can you say no? The crowd was smaller than expected at this show, but every person there knew every word. Pure magic. --Dana Moran Chance the Rapper This is bittersweet: the local's major fest debut basically cemented his status as one of Chicago's few through-and-through, naturally talented artists on the rise, whom we...

It was over. It was all over. With 1:47 remaining in regulation of Game 7, the Blackhawks' Niklas Hjalmarsson unleashed a fierce shot past Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard, giving the Hawks a 2-1 lead and a glimpse of advancement. The crowd roared in ecstatic approval as the players celebrated. But near mid-ice, a whistle had blown. A dual-roughing call on Brandon Saad and Detroit's Kyle Quincey. No goal. From the opposite end of the ice, Corey Crawford watched in disbelief.

Would you drive 12 hours to watch a Bulls game on TV in the same bar as Dennis Rodman? Oklahoma resident Kris Glenn and a group of buddies did. "It was absolutely worth it," the shaggy-haired, 31-year-old said enthusiastically. "I got him to autograph my arm so when I get back, I can get it tattooed on me. " Glenn was part of a small but enthusiastic crowd who purchased a $60 deal through LivingSocial that got them some face time with The Worm at Arrow on Ogden in the West Loop on Saturday night.

If you're a 21st century Chicago artist and your name isn't Kanye, Common, Lupe or Fall Out Boy, your album doesn't debut in the Billboard Top 10. Sadly, it just doesn't happen. The exciting exception is EDM trio and north suburban Northbrook-bred Krewella, whose debut full-length “Get Wet,” anchored by massive singles “Live for the Night” and “Alive,” launched at No. 8 when the album dropped in September. Jahan Yousaf, who shares vocal duties in the group with her younger sister Yasmine, says they didn't celebrate...

The United Center may be home to the Stanley Cup champions, but some inner-city kids in Chicago have never even heard of the Blackhawks, let alone held a hockey stick in their hands. Teacher Christopher Hennessy of Haines Elementary School is working to change that, through a fundraising website called DonorsChoose.org. "Most public schools do not even have enough money for many essential items," said Hennessy, who is using DonorsChoose.org for the first time and plans on using it again.

It's expected to be a supreme celebration Wednesday night. On the heels of Supreme Court rulings that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and paved way for gay marriage in California, bar owners in Boystown are preparing for larger than normal crowds -- even with Pride Week activities in full swing. At Sidetrack, a Boystown video bar, a 16-foot banner was being printed Wednesday, which will be hung on the bars awning, according to a bar manager. “June 26, 2013 DOMA Overturned.

Chicagoans love their lakefront path, but they don't love all 18-miles equally. In fact, the three-mile stretch of trail between Fullerton Avenue and Randolph Street frustrates cyclists, runners, and beach-seeking pedestrians alike, according to a new report from local transportation and recreation advocacy groups calling for improvements to the trail. During the hottest months for outdoor recreation, as many as 30,000 people travel through the lakefront trail's most popular points, according to the report, called "People...

Every week, NFL teams' toughness is examined. Even though the Bears looked like one of the best teams in the league and were playing struggling Carolina on Sunday, question marks remain. How would the Bears play after a short week? Were Jay Cutler's sore ribs feeling OK? Could Cam Newton recover from general ineptitude? As it turns out, a Robbie Gould field goal as time expired was enough to boost the NFC North-leading Bears to 6-1. "To get out with a 'W,' we're happy, but anytime you win there's things to improve on, just like a loss, so we've got to keep getting better," said Cutler, who was booed several times by...

Expect more crowds than usual this weekend at the CTA Blue and Orange line airport stations--but Memorial Day isn't the busiest CTA day of the year. Friday is historically the highest ridership day of Memorial Day weekend at the O'Hare Blue Line and Midway Orange Line stations, a RedEye analysis of daily CTA ridership found.
