Just like Channing Tatum's character in "Magic Mike" (Ha! How's that for a way to start a column? You have no idea where the hell I'm going with this ...), I consider myself an entrepreneur. Now I finally have an idea that's so good, I can practically smell the billions of dollars that I'll soon keep in my scepter-shaped swimming pool. If you're like me, there's basically no alarm clock on the planet that can effectively wake you up. Even when the noise blaring out of those tinny speakers sounds like someone re-enacting scenes from Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" on a pig, you can just roll...

If you've been wondering what is going into the old Eatt space in River North, here's your answer: a new Italian wine bar by the Rosebud group. According to executive chef Michael Ponzio, Bar Umbriago (6 W. Hubbard St.) will feature a modern small-plates menu (no $50 steaks here), while staying true to Rosebud's old-world-Italian sensibility with touches such as classic cocktails and live entertainment. It's even named after a character in an old Jimmy Durante song.   The concept is in line with recent management changes at Rosebud:...

Wicker Park will soon be saying goodbye to a building that's housed a local family-owned lumberyard for the past 91 years. By next spring, the two-story L. Miller & Son Lumber Company building, currently located at 1815 W. Division, will be transformed into a four-story mixed-use commercial and residential development. It's a bittersweet change for Bob Margolin, whose grandfather Louis Miller opened the lumberyard in 1921. "It's more sweet than bitter, though," said Margolin in a phone interview.

Milwaukee Ave.), a family-run Cuban restaurant and rum bar. Gonzales has been working with a student of Nitza Villapol, known as the Julia Child of Cuba, to create a menu that's “authentic with a twist.” Think black beans with apples, three different takes on plantains, ropa vieja sliders (shredded beef with...

After riding the No. 22 Clark bus last month, TJ Holly of Rogers Park noticed his pocket was a little lighter. Thankfully, his wallet was still there - but his Ventra card was gone. He logged onto ventrachicago.com Dec. 15 to report his card missing and request a replacement card. And then he waited. And waited some more. In the meantime, he walked instead of riding the bus. Then he bought a new card from a Ventra vending machine. His replacement card never came in the mail, though Ventra says normal delivery of replacement cards is seven to 10 business days.
