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.

**1/2 (out of four) I'm not faulting Paul Dano for being one of the less (to put it nicely) screen-friendly presences in Hollywood. I am faulting “Being Flynn” for shoving Denise (Olivia Thirlby, excellent), a cute and extremely stable employee of a homeless shelter, into bed with Nick (Dano), an aimless, odd-looking bummer. Otherwise, the movie, written and directed by Paul Weitz (“About a Boy”) and adapted from Nick Flynn's memoir “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City,” seeks little sympathy.

* (out of four) In “Taken,” ex-spy Bryan (Liam Neeson) made single-handedly killing the Albanians who kidnapped his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) look easy. That should've been a clue to leave this one-man wrecking crew alone. No, Murad (Rade Serbedzija) doesn't care that his son was a kidnapper who ruined the lives of innocent young women. He demands revenge on the boy's killer, launching a roughly 30-man operation to capture Bryan, his ex-wife, Lenore (Famke Janssen), and Kim during their trip to Istanbul.

Sometimes it really does pay to have friends in high places. For more than seven years, musician/artist Lady Starlight, born Colleen Martin, has been a close confidant of pop icon Lady Gaga. In the early days, she served as an artistic collaborator and occasional muse, helping Gaga dream up some of her more elaborate costumes. On Gaga's current tour, Starlight, 37, serves as a supporting act, warming up the audience with a high-concept set she described as "performance art. " Though Gaga was forced to postpone the tour's Wednesday and Thursday shows at the United...

From this summer's vegan menu at Grant Achatz's restaurant Next to plenty of buzz about plant-based diets, veganism is definitely having a moment. "A few years ago, people said, 'Oh, vegan? What does that mean?" said Don Clements, who opened all-vegan BYOB cafe Kitchen 17 (613 W. Briar Place 773-661-1757) in East Lakeview in early May. While vegetarians eat meat-free, vegans also forgo animal products including dairy, eggs and honey. Clements went vegan for a combination of health, animal rights and environmental reasons.
