You've seen the hike in lime prices at your grocery store, and bars are feeling it, too. A disease affecting Mexican lime trees means there's less fruit, and drug cartels also have taken control of some groves. At Del Toro, a Pilsen bar that orders 10-12 cases of limes per week, Everado Garcia has seen prices increase fivefold. They've tweaked some recipes to substitute half lemon juice and half lime juice, and they've had to raise margarita prices by a dollar. "The lime prices are coming in a little cheaper, 10-20 dollars less, in the last two weeks," Garcia said, hoping that the worst of the price spike is...

I consider myself a champion of the downtrodden, a latter-day Tom Joad, and in the role of social crusader I'd like to stick up for a group of people very close to my heart: the Stephens. Not "Stevens" but "Stephens. " The PH-ers, the afflicted and maltreated of the singular diagraph that forms a "V" sound. In fact, you may not be aware, but there is an unceasing blood feud between us and the Stevens - mostly because they are spelling their names wrong. This feud is fiercer than Catholics and Protestants, more intractable than Israelis and Palestinians, featuring more vicious carnage than vampires...

The CTA on Tuesday graduated 33 new bus drivers as part of its hiring push for next year's Red Line overhaul project. Mayor Emanuel was on hand Tuesday at the 77th Street bus garage in Chatham to congratulate the new drivers, who will start as part-time employees and transition to full time as other drivers retire or leave the CTA. The drivers will initially operate the shuttle buses that will substitute for the southern portion of the Red...

Parade-goers drinking in the street could get slapped with a fine of up to $1,000 under a proposal advanced Thursday by a key City Council committee. The original proposal would have doubled the fines for drinking in the public way and public urination or defecation while within 200 feet of a parade in progress. However, the proposed ordinance was tweaked to keep the increase in fines but extend the range to 800 feet of a parade route. The Committee on Public Safety endorsed the amended proposal at its Thursday...

Reality is starting to kick in, folks. As much as we may not like to admit it, it's looking like we're not gonna see any pro hoops soon. Not sure about the rest of you, but one of the cornerstones of my winter is cuddling up on my couch and watching whatever NBA game is on, even if it's a snoozefest like Spurs-Warriors or something. So now we're left to scramble for quality winter entertainment. I've done some research into sports that I think can be quality basketball substitutes.

Starz gives another nod to Chicago history with the key art for Season 2 of its political drama "Boss. " In the image, Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammar) holds an iron hook--no, this isn't a horror/slasher series, but Kane does do horrible things--as his family members, employees and political pawns are shown hanging from meat hooks. The caption says, "Power consumes everyone," while the Starz plug for the key art says, "In Kane's world you either show blind allegiance like cattle or become just another piece of meat for the machine.

There's no longer only one malort in town. R. Franklin's Original Recipe Malort , which was developed by The Violet Hour beverage director Robbie Haynes and borrows his middle name, now is available at bars and shops across the city. The bitter liquor, which previously was available only at the Wicker Park cocktail lounge, is bottled by Chicago-based Letherbee Distillers. "I think it's sweeter, it's more bitter and more grapefruity [than other malorts]," said Letherbee's distiller Brent Engel.

You've already heard that Dunkin' Donuts just launched a new menu item, the glazed doughnut breakfast sandwich, so we can go ahead and skip that part, right? Because I spent most of my day on Wednesday, when it was announced, gabbing in excitement and disbelief about this thing that is allegedly only 390 calories, and you just want to know if it's good or not, right? Right, moving on. Before we begin, I need you to pull your judgmental "Fat America!" head out of the sand and consider a few things: A)

As they begin Season 3 of "Key & Peele" ( 9:30 p.m. CT Wednesday, Sept. 18, Comedy Central; 3 stars out of 4 ), comics Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele need to focus on new material. It's not that fan favorite characters such as President Obama's Anger Translator and Mr. Garvey the substitute teacher don't still bring the laughs, but the new sketches involving these characters don't necessarily expand the joke like a new sketch involving football players Hingle McCringleberry and Ozamataz Buckshank, who rap with their unusually...
