The accordion doors are closing. The CTA on Thursday is retiring its 2200-series cars with the folding doors that currently run on the Blue Line. The cars, which were built in 1969 and 1970, were sometimes a source of frustration for riders with disabilities and O'Hare-bound riders with luggage. The cars have been replaced by newer cars as the CTA upgrades its fleet with the 5000-series cars with the aisle-facing seats. The CTA will hold a farewell event for the cars at 10:05 a.m. Thursday.

Keisha Allen knows that the challenges of being a homeless transgender woman in Chicago are steep. On top of navigating a burdened homeless-services system to find food and shelter each day, she and many women have also faced prejudice, ignorance and harassment from the people who run the agencies and shelters as well as those who inhabit them. "My experience at the shelters here in Chicago is almost, I want to use the word dangerous, for a trans woman of color," Allen said. Earlier this year, Allen was placed in the men's section of one West Side housing facility, in...

It's no secret that neighborhood taverns in Chicago are a dying breed. Licensing can be nearly impossible, neighbors can be hesitant to support a new tavern on their block, and dry wards and liquor moratoriums can complicate the process. But for the few that remain open - the ones that look like houses with illuminated signs in the distance, the ones that still give out free snacks and stock Old Milwaukee - crowds remain loyal, with many 20- and 30-somethings adopting them as their own. Recently, a few bar owners have begun taking over older spots and reimagining them for a...

Double Door , the 19-year-old Wicker Park live music mainstay, would like its forthcoming basement speakeasy to become your neighborhood bar. "Double Door has been so performance-driven," co-owner Sean Mulroney said. "As soon as the band's last chord is ringing through the room, people head out the door to someone else's bar. " With the addition of a subterranean speakeasy, called Door No. 3, Mulroney would like those concert-goers to head downstairs for a post-show cocktail, beer and some more music.

Burger review: Parts and Labor 2700 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-360-7040 Rating: !! 1/2 (out of 4) A man cannot live on one type of burger alone--certainly not a beef-obsessed man like Burgerelli. Thick char burgers certainly are satisfying, but my tummy has rumbled recently for the lace-like edges of a pressed griddle burger. Edzo's Burger Shop fits the bill, but wherefore art the rest of the griddle burger barons? Parts and Labor, a mechanic-themed bar and burger restaurant that opened mid-December in Logan Square, serves only these precious pressed patties.
