2 for $25: Kai Zan 2557 1/2 Chicago Ave. 773-278-5776 Cheap Japanese food is ubiquitous, but you're generally making a big sacrifice, either in the quality of the sushi or the hipness of the dining room. Kai Zan makes no compromises. This matchbox of a restaurant in Humboldt Park opened without fanfare earlier this summer, but word already is spreading about the romantic, whimsical interior and creative, affordable menu. Add a BYOB policy ($5 corkage fee), and couples are saving money on drinks too. While the portions aren't huge, small price tags mean you can order a solid sampling of the menu.

Can we be honest with each other? I've been hitting it a little hard recently. From heavy "celebration" on Halloween to eating things covered in cheese, gravy or barbecue sauce (or all three, on special occasions), my body hasn't been feeling the way it should. It's one thing to cut back on beer and eat a ton of salad, but I don't believe in moderation. So I decided to try a cleanse - you know, one of those programs that's supposed to purge all of the nasty stuff from your system and leave you feeling healthier and more energetic.

Some of River North's hottest restaurants have their own alter-ego bars hidden away just upstairs or downstairs. Mercadito & Double A 108 W. Kinzie St. 312-329-9555 This Mexican-inspired hot spot draws dinner crowds to graze on orders of guac and tacos (think pork belly, battered mahi mahi or spicy shrimp) served on housemade tortillas. For a more intimate vibe, head downstairs to Double A, a tiny lair of a cocktail lounge where friends cozy up in club-like booths for rounds of drinks.

Flu-cation, anyone? I just celebrated my birthday face-down on my bed in a pool of sweat. Delusional. Out of my mind. I was a sick person, more sick than usual, you guys. (That's so sick.) I was curled up in a fetal position, cuddling a box of Kleenex, sniffing Emergen-C and pouring green tea on my head. Ahhh, relief. I saw it on Pinterest, so I totally had to try it. Yup, it was my birth-flu-day. And it wasn't a hangover, oddly. The jerk could have at least brought me a gift.

Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you gents aren't especially proficient in the art of love, you might be struggling to figure out what to do for your special someone. Luckily, we've got your back. We recruited the guys of JODY, who produce sultry R&B by way of the Andromeda galaxy, as well as their co-horts in The-Drum to help you get it together.   James King (singer, JODY aka The GTW ) I recommend buying yourself the 4-foot-tall Vermont Teddy Bear.
