Coming the second week in March from chef Michael Kornick and David Morton ( DMK Burger Bar , Fish Bar , pictured) is Ada Street , a neighborhood tavern with a focus on both after-work drinks and the late-night crowd. (Perhaps from the neighboring music venue Hideout ?) “It's really not even a restaurant; it's more of a tavern,” said Kornick in an audio clip offering his comments on the concept. While Kornick's other “little joints” -- Fish Bar and DMK -- focus heavily on beer, he says the cocktail menu at...

Candy corn shots. Caramel appletinis. Blood orange punch. Why does Halloween season drinking have to jack up your blood sugar faster than a bag of fun-size Snickers bars? If the thought of sucking down another pumpkin-flavored anything makes you want to hurl into your Gandalf hat, a classic cocktail such as the Corpse Reviver could be just your style. Despite the spooky name, Corpse Revivers weren't created with the undead in mind -- in fact, they were concocted as an energizer.

If you're wondering who invited Jack Frost to stick around Chicago, it was Joanne Singleton of Lincoln Park. When Singleton was training last winter for a 50K (31-mile run) in Alaska, she savored the ice and cold. After a heavy snow, she would take a Metra train to Highland Park at sunrise and run more than 20 miles on trails near there before they were plowed. This year, she's had to wait a bit longer for winter, her beloved running partner, Chilly Willy. "It's my favorite time of the year," said Singleton, 40. "If you have the right running gear, you can run in any...
