In honor of Halloween, The Music Box Theatre is bringing us a 24-hour movie festival, the "Music Box of Horrors. " Can you hang? For the eighth time, the marathon will screen horror film after horror film--and it all kicks off at noon Saturday. If a 24-hour horror moviethon sounds like too much too handle, you'd be mistaken. Dave Jennings, general manager of the theater, said by his “unscientific poll,” about 75 percent of attendees last the full 24 hours. Of course, some people fall asleep in their seats, but the theater offers “lots of coffee” to help keep this to a minimum, he said.

Brown Bag Lunch Truck owner and chef Joaquin Soler is opening a barbecue restaurant in Irving Park this month. Soler first began using the tiny space at 4009 N. Albany Ave. to host pop-up shops where he served dougnuts or chicken and waffles. Their success convinced him to park his truck and open Smalls. “It's a great little neighborhood," Soler said. "It's fairly underserved. There's not a lot of food options. " The restaurant will serve the same brined and smoked meats the food truck was known for along with ribs, fried chicken and seasonal local vegetables such as Asian long beans and asparagus.

A University of Illinois at Chicago project to bring a mobile history museum to the city is rolling forward thanks to a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts the school received this week. The grant will finance the design and development of “History Moves,” a mobile public history museum--the brainchild of Jennifer Brier, UIC associate professor of gender and women's studies. Brier hopes the mobile museum will serve as a unique space to collect and display significant aspects of Chicago's history for all of its residents to see, no matter where they live.

Sweet home, Chicago. Where the politicians are ethical, taxes make sense and practically all decisions are made for the good of its citizens. Nothing could remind us of this more than the innovative and completely-unique idea to upgrade the CTA's fare system to the much-lauded Ventra , outsourced to a private company that has provided excellent customer service and transparency thus far.
