It's getting hard out there for a foreign guy. There used to be a time when my biggest problem on weekends was choosing which house party to go to or which dinner invitation to accept. Not anymore. Let me give you some background. After coming to America as a college student from - wait, where am I from? - I ended up taking a job in Chicago. Rather than wallow in Midwestern isolation, I soon was overjoyed to notice a pattern of LeBron-like demand for my presence at after-work events, happy hours and guys' nights out.

The Chicago Bliss are bringing a little less sexy back. The women's football team - which kicks off its season Friday with a home game at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates - took a year off after the 2011 season and is returning to a league working to rebrand itself with a bit of deglamming.

The Elusive Chanteuse” Mariah Carey 2 out of 4 In many ways, Mariah Carey - who's either deeply troubled, absolutely bat[bleep] crazy or both - was Britney Spears before Britney Spears. Both were young artists kept on a tight leash who skyrocketed to astronomical fame, then cracked and got real weird for a few years until the inevitable comeback.

"South Park" returns tonight with the mid-Season 16 premiere in which creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker take on the concussion epidemic in football. I doubt the comic duo had time to sneak in a reference to Monday's bad reffing in the Packers-Seahawks game, but you never know. (And wouldn't that be awesome?)

Though chain stories have been closing in on Lincoln Park's indie boutique scene over the years, the neighborhood's surviving shops along Armitage Avenue and Halsted Street definitely are worth a visit.
