Isn't this the biggest party night of the year? Aren't people happy the world didn't end on 12.21 and want to get laid? How can I skew the odds in my favor?--Screw Year's Eve New Year's Eve is definitely THE date for hookups, with odds higher than Valentine's Day, Halloween and Arbor Day combined (but not Groundhog Day. Bill Murray's sexual prowess has ruined the standard for everyone!

Review: Fulton Market Kitchen 311 N. Sangamon St. 312-733-6900 Rating: 3 (out of four) Off to a good start A mix of art galleries and big-name restaurants mixed in with meatpacking plants is what makes the West Loop a destination. After living in the neighborhood for nearly a decade, Daniel Alonso (of Wicker Park tapas bar Black Bull) partnered up with former Victor Hotel owner Relu Stan to turn that space into his own mixed-media creation. Victor Hotel was a club, not a hotel, and Fulton Market Kitchen is on Sangamon Street, not Fulton, but stay with me here.

In 2012, we heard a lot about Chicago's startup community. Entrepreneurs are thriving here like never before, and people all over the world are taking notice. I'm a musician who's never had an actual job, so aside from my love for GrubHub and Groupon, I never really cared about the start-up scene. That is, until I became a part of it. When it comes to being social in Chicago, we have a well-established hipster scene, a punk scene, a hip-hop scene, etc. Now, I can tell you we can officially add one more to that list: the startup scene.

In three short years, Patrick Kane has grown up. Before lifting the Stanley Cup in 2010 at age 21, he talked to RedEye about how he liked to play himself in an NHL video game and how he was still adjusting to superstardom in Chicago, where athletes are mega-celebrities. Fans saw the boyish grin he flashed when he celebrated that game-winning goal against Philadelphia in overtime to crown the Hawks champions. Fast-forward three years and he still has the same boyish grin. Chicago witnessed it again when he smacked the puck into the net in double overtime against the L.A. Kings to clinch the...

Patrick Stump doesn't claim to be cool. “I don't believe in guilty pleasures,” Stump says, when the subject of pop music comes up. The Fall Out Boy singer's solo album, “Soul Punk,” which dropped Oct. 18, is the cool kind of pop music, though: the kind that draws on Timbaland as much as any punk band and ends up sounding a little like a Prince record. Stump, who caps his tour Friday at Metro, called in during a recent stop in Buffalo to talk with RedEye about Hollywood parties, socialism and what hip-hop fans think of his other...

Though she thinks "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm is gorgeous, it isn't his chain-smoking ad exec character that Audra Yeomans is looking at when tuning in to the '60s-era show. More often, she's eyeing the glasses Don Draper is sipping his whiskey out of, or in Sunday's case, the ash tray he's filling. The owner of Seek Vintage in Noble Square noticed a translucent blue ashtray on a conference table during this week's premiere, around the point at which copywriter Peggy Olson is attempting to sell Heinz execs on the idea of a "bean...

Move over, MILFs. DILF--the daddy of all theme parties this summer--is a new monthly event for gay men over 35 and their younger admirers. Hosted by former International Mr. Leather winner Jason Hendrix, 47, and local DJ and party promoter Marc Moder, 42, DILF's home is The Sofo Tap in Andersonville, just outside the purview of the more youth-oriented Boystown gayborhood. For the uninitiated, a "daddy" in gay culture is generally defined as "a sexy, confident, older man," Hendrix said.
