It's summer, and because it's hookup season , let's do this week's advice column hookup-style, i.e. quick 'n' dirty? Yeah, you like it. My girlfriend likes it rough. Is it considered a faux-pas to leave bruises? If she asks for them, it's fine. Just try to avoid the areas that are highly visible. Despite what's shouted in the throes of ecstasy, people still have to go to work the next day. This will spare your lover the "So you're wearing a scarf indoors in June, why?"

Aaron Szumny has been cut off by reckless drivers and scraped up by a car door flung in his path. He has seen fellow bikers be just as careless as other drivers, and inexperienced riders create hazards on Chicago roads. Despite the dangers, the lifelong rider, who currently is on a break from cycling, doesn't wear a helmet when he rides. "I feel like it restricts my vision," said Szumny, 30, of Wicker Park. And in a city with no law requiring helmets for cyclists, he certainly isn't the only one to skip out on headgear.

Nearly every weekend from now until September, at least one strip of Chicago's streets will be clogged as the Windy City's dozens of festivals take over the thoroughfares for the summer. Hot spots like Wicker Park will surrender their streets many more times, and for most of the city's residents, that's a great thing. McKinley Park resident Justin Kerr, however, isn't sold on the idea. It's not the festivals themselves that get the 42-year-old web developer's blood boiling. It's their so called suggested donations, which Kerr asserts are increasingly being treated as more of a mandatory entrance fee. "They channel you through these long lines, and everything is presented as if it's an admittance fee and that you have to pay. They are not being presented as suggested donations, and they are making people feel pressured or obliged to pay," Kerr said.

The second of three chefs with Chicago ties on Bravo's “Around the World in 80 Plates” reached the end of the road Wednesday night. Nick Lacasse, who has worked as chef at The Drawing Room in the Gold Coast for the past six years, performed well in the episode's cooking challenges, but was voted off the show as a result of his fellow team members' immunity and alliances with one another. Even though his journey was cut short, we'll always remember him for spouting off one of the funniest one-liners of the series so far: When fellow team member Steve “Nookie” Postal asked him if he was having trouble carrying an 80-pound wheel of parmesan cheese through the streets of Bologna, he responded with, “It's just slippery and awkward ... like your sex life.” About last night's episode, I'm just gonna come out and say it: You totally got screwed.

One of three chefs with Chicago ties on Bravo's"Around the World in 80 Plates"reached the end of the road Wednesday night. On a show of big personalities, travel agent-turned-chef Gary Walker proved himself a reliable supplier of one-liners and a steady source of entertainment for fans. The ladies of the Kappa Phi Delta sorority house at Illinois Institute of Technology, where Walker worked as a chef before filming the show, even got a shout-out when he chugged beer during a pub crawl challenge on the show's first episode filmed in London.

*1/2 (out of four) Welcome to the 21st century, the mayor of a small Lebanese town tells villagers as they gather around an old TV that barely has a signal. Obviously, these people couldn't be farther from modernity. The women, in particular, have had it with their men bickering and fighting, frequently, a result of ongoing and often deadly tensions between Christians and Muslims. So the mayor's wife, Yvonne (Yvonne Maalouf), Amale (director/co-writer Nadine Labaki) and other female leaders aim to calm down their guys (who are known to push a kid on crutches if necessary)

With the release of his new movie, "The Raven,"opening Friday, April 27 in theaters, we sat down with John Cusack to ask him about his Chicago ties and how they play into his life today. If you could take the"Hot Tub Time Machine"back to a certain year and place in Chicago, where would it be? Definitely places I've already been, because I've lived through some of the best history in Chicago. All the times the Cubs won the division before the Wild Card; those were unbelievable times in Chicago.
