The CTA is asking its board on Wednesday to approve a permanent extension of a Southwest Side bus route. For more than a year, the CTA has been experimenting with an extension of the No. 35 31st/35th bus route to include 31st Street between Kedzie and Cicero Avenues. That section of the route was discontinued in 1997 after low ridership. For years, community groups have fought to have that service restored, often packing CTA board meetings with supporters. A CTA spokeswoman said she didn't have details about the CTA's proposal to permanently extend the route.

Chicago Pride Parade organizers, Ald. Tom Tunney and church officials have reached an agreement to move the annual march back to its noon start time after leaders at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Boystown voiced concern a new route and time would interfere with services. In a joint statement released late Wednesday, Tunney (44th) and parade organizers said a compromise was reached. When parade organizers announced in October that the parade's route and time had changed, with the parade starting at 10 a.m., church officials said the route would make it difficult for parishioners to attend mass...

It'll be creepy, funny, weird, outrageous and creative on Halsted Street this Halloween as the Northalsted parade and costume contest walks a new route. "We have people who come from all over the city and the suburbs to attend this event," said Jen Gordon, spokesperson for the Northalsted Business Alliance, which holds the parade. As to how the celebration has become a key attraction for Halloween, Gordon said the appeal is simple: People throw all their time and energy into dressing up. "It's one of those parades where we really encourage creativity in...

In 2009, a 20-something man went "undercover" as a homosexual for a year to see how it would affect his deeply conservative religious beliefs. Now Timothy Kurek, of Nashville, Tenn., has written a yet-untitled book about his experiences hanging out in gay bars, bookstores and clubs - and even "coming out" to his family - and he is appearing on networks such as MSNBC to raise money for publication. Let's put aside for a moment any jokes about a straight man doing undercover "research" - wink, wink - and what might really have been going on there.

With its debut Monday of the "Jeffery Jump" route between downtown and the South Side, the CTA has taken a hop - but not a leap - toward rapid bus service. The new J14 route along Jeffery Boulevard, which replaces the No. 14 Jeffery Express, features upgraded bus shelters and fewer stops, but the main enhancements won't arrive until next year. By spring, the CTA expects to create a system that would give early or extended green lights to buses between 73rd and 84th streets and implement a bypass lane at Jeffery and Anthony Avenue that would allow buses to whiz...

June in Chicago means more than turning on the air conditioning or hitting the beach. June is also Pride Month in Chicago, and those familiar with the annual LGBT Pride Parade --an explosion of color and camaraderie in Boystown--may not know there is also a Dyke March, several Black LGBT pride events and, new this year, a Trans pride rally and picnic. The following list highlights this year's month-long pride events. This list isn't comprehensive (there are more than 100 events scheduled this year )

Unless you've spent the year immersed in nothing but "Real Housewives" - and if you have, thanks for tearing yourself away long enough to read this - you've probably heard the news that 2012 is the Mayans' predicted Year of the Apocalypse. And really, what better place to begin the countdown than Wednesday's 16th annual Northalsted Halloween Parade, which always features to-die-for costumes for both dead and undead humans and pets? Better yet, this year's parade also features a new theme of Apocalypse 2012, a new start time and a new route.

It was supposed to be a chill night for Ahmed Braimah. Maybe a few rounds of a Jenga drinking game and catching up with friends from out of town. Then someone suggested hitting the clubs. By 4 a.m., the group of about eight had downed two bottles of vodka and a bottle of whiskey. The 35-year-old River North resident said he was run down and had a headache when he woke up from the unusually heavy night of drinking. "I was feeling a little sluggish, let's put it that way," he said.
