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.

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...

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.
