Two Chicagoans are hoping their new niche venture is the full package. Adam Freck and Andrew Volk have launched Meggings Man, an online shop where they're selling male leggings of all sizes and colors. With offices in the Loop, the business launched Dec. 15 after a year of research and development into leggings made specifically for men. “We've taken the male physique, if you will, into mind while designing them,” said Volk, 31, of Lakeview, noting the extra fabric in the hips and waist for their meggings.

If you're out to explore Lincoln Park after dark, look no further than the diagonal thoroughfare of Lincoln Avenue. Though Irish pubs and sports bars with college flags proudly displayed make up the majority, here are five hangouts that stand apart from the pack. The Barrelhouse Flat 2624 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-857-0421 Lincoln Park scored a linchpin in the local craft cocktail movement when this swanky, two-story lounge opened. There's a seemingly endless menu of classic cocktails, a few hearty snack options and free billiards upstairs.

Time to stock up? Beginning Monday, some Dominick's stores will be selling liquor for 30 percent off, ahead of planned closures of the grocery chain in the area. A call to the Dominick's at Sheffield and Fullerton and Lincoln Park confirmed the sale, which began when city liquor sales started at 7 a.m. If last week's sales-- which offered 50 percent off many items in the store --were any indication, lines will be long. Only stores that have not been purchased by Mariano's or Jewel and will be closing have the sale, so it's a good idea to call ahead.  Want more?

Smashed store windows. Homemade fireworks. Chicagoans knew how to celebrate the Blackhawk's Stanley Cup win Monday night, with enthusiasm that sometimes turned violent. But Chicago Police officials said the early-morning mayhem was basically peaceful. Police arrested 23 partiers last night on misdemeanor charges for breaking store windows in Lincoln Park and Lakeview, and other forms of reckless and disorderly conduct, but no felony charges were filed. Officials said they also issued 21 tickets for minor, non-violent infractions, including drinking and urinating in public.

I wouldn't call Lincoln Park diverse. Chances are if you live in Lincoln Park you are a yuppie, a well-to-do married couple, a college student, a baby or a fancy dog. I live in Lincoln Park, and I'm not a baby. On the contrary, my yuppie status has allowed me to get into community issues, and I've taken the following stances: pro-nightlife, pro-shopping and pro-puppies. OK, so maybe I haven't gotten into the issues as much as the next gal with Tory Burch flats, but one issue has recently come to my attention, thanks to the middle-aged friends I found hanging around outside my apartment trying to give me fliers.

Lincoln Park's newest resident is one a lot of neighbors may have already met. The three-story tall, half-naked woman residing on the Vitamin Water XXX ad at Sheffield/Wrightwood/Lincoln intersection, just blocks away from DePaul's campus, is hard to miss. And some students are not rolling out the welcome mat. Shortly after the advertisement went up, DePaul Junior Emily Edwards started an online petition asking Glaceau, the company that manufactures Vitamin Water,  to remove it. The petition letter states, "The message seems to be more concerned with selling sexuality than encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

There are plenty of rooftop lounges in the city, but it's hard to find one where you can take in the sights from a distance. When it opens June 1, Hotel Lincoln's rooftop bar and small plates restaurant (1816 N. Clark St.) will look out over Lake Michigan with an uninterrupted skyline view. “You're not looking at another building. The rooftop has sweeping views up and down Lincoln Park,” said Hotel Lincoln general manager Bob Shelley.   The yet-to-be-named lounge will have seating for 175 outdoors and 75 indoors and will feature hand-crafted cocktails and small bar bites courtesy of chef Paul Virant of neighboring restaurant Perennial Virant.

This has been Lincoln's year. Even though Abraham Lincoln would have turned 204 years old last month, he's still a pretty popular guy. The proof: The "Lincoln" DVD comes out March 26. The movie has grossed more than $180 million in the U.S. since it came out in theaters in November. Daniel Day-Lewis won the Oscar for the lead role in "Lincoln" in February, a month after the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation going into effect. Don't forget how good old Abe was featured as a vampire hunter in yet another movie and fought zombies in a straight-to-DVD movie.

Chicagoans play in bowling, kickball, baseball, beach volleyball and countless other sport leagues. But skee ball? It's more popular than you think. "For most of the people, the last time they played was when they were 5 years old at Chuck E. Cheese's," said Mike Fraser, director of league operations for the Skee League, Chicago's first skee ball league. In two years, the Skee League has grown to 60 three-person teams--180 members in all--who play at Glascott's Saloon in Lincoln Park.
