But now that temperatures have dipped and holiday shopping has driven us to tears, hot spiced wine seems especially necessary. So consider this your public service announcement: Glogg season is in full swing. This year, as they have for decades, Simon's serves up $5 cups of the seasonal beverage, which the owners brew in 15-gallon batches using their...

To bolster their line, they signed former Dallas Pro Bowler Andre Gurode, who now occupies Rachal's old locker. RedEye sat down with the 33-year-old to hear his thoughts on returning to the NFL, playing for the Bears, and why his major in ethnic studies and double minor in psychology and sociology might come in handy on Sundays.

In River North, Red Violet is serving up a taste of the Far East. Billing itself as a "modern Chinese" restaurant, it opened in February on a restaurant-heavy stretch of Hubbard Street.
