After attending the infamous "Oops" Republican debate in Michigan, I've come to two conclusions: First, President Obama will win a second term, and second, I'm going to need a left eyebrow transplant after raising it so many times in what I call "confusiohorror. " As I watched from the media filing center in an auxiliary basketball court, I was struck by just how divorced the rhetoric espoused by that collection of losers and half-wits was from the reality of the challenges we face - those still screamed in the streets by the evicted Occupy movement.

Jonah Frank is the first to admit that it's going to be hard following Tona Palomino's act. " He's the warmest and most brilliant and clever and caring guy," Frank said of the former Trenchermen beverage director. After Palomino's exit last month, Frank, 24, was tapped to helm the Wicker Park restaurant's highly regarded cocktail program.

When it comes to first dates, the go-to option is generally dinner and a movie. Mention this to foreplay expert/professional playboy Spencer Burnett and he'll react as though you just insulted his mother. "Worst (freaking) date of all time," he said. "With dinner, you're in a stagnant place face to face. It's awkward, it's presumptuous, it's boring and if it doesn't go well, you're stuck there for an hour-and-a-half. A movie is so non-social. Let's sit in a room for two hours and not talk to each other like we're married people or we're buddies.

The CTA has released the list of buildings that would face demolition if the Red and Purple Line overpass project goes through, and some beer taps might run dry.  Beer on Clark, Clark Street Beach, Fiesta Cantina, Beggars Pizza, Johnny O'Hagan's Irish Pub and Restaurant and the newly opened Big Cheese Poutineire  are among other buinesses and residential properties that may need to be razed to make way for the proposed Red-Purple Modernization project,...

Dear Riley, As the child of one of my best friend's, Joe, I'd like to welcome you to existence in Chicago, Illinois, United States of America, Planet Earth, Milk Way Galaxy, Whatever Temporal Plane of Reality We Reside Upon.  Your dad just sent me a picture of him holding you, and I have to say - wow, soooo cute, so beautiful, so gorgeous. And, Riley, you're not bad either. As a new member of the human race, you could not have arrived at a more materially advantageous, more interesting, and possibly terrifying time.

A lot can happen in 12 months. Just ask Chicago sports teams. As the city ushered in a new year over the weekend, the Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox found themselves in much different shape than a year ago at this time. Consider the following.   Bears Remember the excitement a year ago this week? The Bears had just finished an 11-5 season and headed into the playoffs with fans thinking Super Bowl. Of course, Green Bay ended that dream in the NFC championshilp game.

As always, this morning's Oscar nominations created a roller coaster of emotion. Shock! Relief! Fury! I should not get so worked up about this. Really, though, the nods for the 2013 Academy Awards had a few more big surprises than usual - or maybe they were just bigger surprises than usual. Here's a rundown of those shockers, plus the notices that made me happy and sad, along with what statement the Academy seems to be making with all of them. The 85th Academy Awards will be revealed Feb. 24 on ABC, hosted by Seth MacFarlane.

Today in wildly unsurprising news, the Indiana man who had the Romney/Ryan logo tatted on his face was disappointed with the election and, seemingly, with the tattoo itself. 30-year-old Eric Hartsburg explained his tattoo aftermath to POLITICO with a classic breakfast euphemism: "Totally disappointed, man. I'm the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it's a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It's there for life. " The tattoo was a result of what can only be explained as mass fanaticism or mass sadism, when...

***1/2 (out of four) Absolutely gorgeous and just a tad too enamored with its style, “Hide Your Smiling Faces,” which was nominated for best narrative feature at the Tribeca Film Festival and a prize for a filmmaker's first feature at the London Film Festival, distills young boys' discovery of fear and mortality into a lyrical elegy for innocence. The lush scenery and minimal activity of Nowhere, America, could be a beautiful escape or a symbol of nothingness that needs to be fled.

For five months last year, the CTA shut down the southern portion of the Red Line to rip up and replace track. Stations were closed and riders were ferried to the Green Line. This construction was to rid that area of the Red Line, long a magnet for stop-and-go service, of slow zones. When the southern section of the Red Line reopened in October, CTA Chief Infrastructure Officer Chris Bushell told RedEye that portion would require minimal maintenance for 10 years. Less than three months later, the Red Line South has a slow zone.

Mayor Emanuel is often seen announcing new programs at press conferences, presiding over City Council meetings and meeting with dignitaries. But Chicagoans have also seen another side of him away from City Hall. The dancer: We knew the mayor took ballet lessons. But he showed off more dance moves as he took off his tie and bit his lower lip while he listened to Robin Thicke perform "Blurred Lines"  at the Taste of Chicago . Of course, a video captured the mayor dancing. Good samaritan: The mayor rushed out a...

If there is a pool in your neighborhood that remains closed, you are not alone. And since the sun has seemed especially pissed off this summer, it is almost impossible to look at an empty pool and not wonder why in God's name it isn't full of crisp blue water.   Unless you keep up with Illinois Pool News, you might not know about the Illinois Swimming Facility Act. This new law requires all publicly accessible pools to have larger, unlockable drains, and has resulted in an $8 million renovation of all Chicago indoor and outdoor pools.

** (out of four) You don't often see a diver execute an elegant back-flip and then plummet into a belly flop. That's the equivalent of what happens to “Girl Most Likely,” though, as a film about a woman who squanders her potential does exactly that. At first, directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (still searching for a winner after 2003's excellent “American Splendor”) and writer Michelle Morgan achieve a nifty dance of quirky precision: Imogene (Kristen Wiig)
