The CTA is holding an open house Tuesday about its $2.3 billion proposal to extend the Red Line from 95th Street to 130th Street. The agency is looking to build four new stations near 103rd, 111th, 116th and 130th streets along Union Pacific Railroad tracks, which would extend the Red Line 5.3 miles. Other alternatives include trains running on Halsted Street or express buses operating mostly on Michigan Avenue. The open house will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Palmer Park Gymnasium, 201 E. 111th St. The agency is working on a draft of a report describing how the project would affect the...

Surprise tots, Chicago.  Thanking the city for its patience after delaying the opening date multiple times, the Sonic at 1022 W. Wilson Ave. in Uptown announced this morning  via Facebook  that it is open for business immediately. The opening had been delayed several times, from an original date in January and then again to late March because bad weather conditions affected concrete pouring at the drive-in's location. This is the only Sonic restaurant open in Chicago. The location's official grand opening is still May 6 , when the location plans to give away limited edition...

If you like to make special trips to the farmers market to buy produce, meat and more from small local farms, you'll have another option this fall. Local Foods--a year-old Chicago company that supplies goods from local farms to restaurants such as Trenchermen and Nana--has announced plans for a multi-use facility in Bucktown that will include a retail market open to the public. "Until now, there have been few channels for small-scale, family farms to sell products in Chicagoland beyond farmers markets," said Local Foods partner...

Keisha Allen knows that the challenges of being a homeless transgender woman in Chicago are steep. On top of navigating a burdened homeless-services system to find food and shelter each day, she and many women have also faced prejudice, ignorance and harassment from the people who run the agencies and shelters as well as those who inhabit them. "My experience at the shelters here in Chicago is almost, I want to use the word dangerous, for a trans woman of color," Allen said. Earlier this year, Allen was placed in the men's section...

Cubs fans heading north on the Red Line Friday will be able to access Wrigley Field via the Addison stop as the Cubs open their 2014 season at home, the CTA said late Thursday. The CTA is allowing northbound trains to stop at the Addison stop from 10:50 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. The CTA had previously said northbound trains could not stop there during that time so the agency could perform maintenance work. The CTA said a clerical error lead to an alert about this service change. Work was never originally scheduled for...

Before Punch House and Dusek's opened in Pilsen last year, Thalia Hall was just a building - a  beautiful, historic, dusty building in need of a lot of TLC.  Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden, who both have experience running music venues Empty Bottle and Evanston's Space, respectively, saw a diamond in the rough.  "Looking at the space, it's not hard to figure out why it's such an engaging property," Finkelman said last October, shortly...

Kristi Pawlowicz, 25, of Lakeview thinks she is less conservative when it comes to talking about money than older generations. When she founded her clothing store Envy Evanston last year, she adopted an "open books" policy with her employees. That means she tells them how much money is coming into the business and how much is being spent each month, including on salaries. "The people I've worked with before are older, like my parents' age, and they would never do that," she said.

In case you didn't get enough jokes and total outrageousness from "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," get this: The film has been re-cut. It's now rated R and features 763 new jokes, since I know you really cared to know exactly how many jokes were new. You wouldn't see it if there were only 762 new ones, right? Anyway, I thought the sequel was hilarious, though it seems many were disappointed by it.  Watch Matt on “You & Me This Morning,” Friday at 6:55 a.m. on WCIU, the U ...
