Some like their pizza cut in squares, while others swear by slices. For as long as we've been stuffing our faces with delicious food, there have been conflicts about the way we eat it. Addressing such fervent foodie issues, we are proud to introduce Food fight. Which part of the turkey is better? WHITE MEAT When it comes Thanksgiving, life is food on food on food. More is definitely more and as such, I say white meat all the way. Simply put, there's more of it. So while you're off enjoying a few servings of dark meat, I'll be off making turkey sandwiches, enchiladas,...

Midwest TV stations hard up for programming over the holidays were ripe for the pranking.  Nick Prueher, one half of the team behind the Found Footage Festival, spent the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's booking himself as a guest on TV stations in Illinois and Wisconsin. His angle was "Chef Keith Guerke," a cooking guru who was supposedly an expert on what to do with leftovers.  However, the supercut of footage above showed Chef Keith was anything but. He makes ice cream cones out of mashed potatoes and gravy, blends a Thanksgiving dinner and even...

I hate the holidays.    Ok, let me clarify. I hate the feeling that the holidays bring. That hopelessness that comes from never having enough money to give stuff to the people you love. The unsettled feeling of realizing that feeling inferior because you can't afford things is a messed-up outlook on the world. Ugly sweaters and the people who insist on throwing parties to celebrate them. It's all annoying. I'll admit that the "spirit of the season" never really affected me ... that is, until this past Thanksgiving.

Because everyone from Chicago is actually from Ohio, none of us actually spends Thanksgiving here. This was my first year staying in the city for the holiday. You see, there are amazing benefits to Thanksgiving in Chicago. During a so-called "Friendsgiving," you do not have to cringe at your drunk, racist uncle/aunt/grandma/whoever while thinking, "God, I hate Thanksgiving. " If you have Thanksgiving in Chicago, you can go out the night before. Blackout Wednesday means you can cripple your friends' plans for 7 a.m. buses and flights.

** (out of four) Think of how sleepy you become after Thanksgiving dinner and you'll know the effect of “Free Birds,” a 3-D comedy-adventure that reinforces the dire state of animation in depressing fashion. Even a movie that doesn't follow the identical plotline as everything else - fortunately, “Free Birds” isn't about a baby turkey who wants to grow up to be something more - suffers from a near-total lack of cleverness. It's not for lack of trying. “Free Birds” is absolutely manic, favoring quantity...

If you've ever stared down a raw turkey in your kitchen sink, dining out for Thanksgiving may have crossed your mind. Some of us can't simply stroll out of the grocery store, into the kitchen and whip up an entire holiday meal that does justice to this month's cover of Food & Wine magazine. And frankly, some of us don't really want to. If you're seeking a twist on the classics, some global flair, or you just want someone else to take care of Thanksgiving this year, take your pick from this list of turkey masters.

Here's how some Chicago colleges are celebrating Thanksgiving students who remain on campus. Columbia College: Columbia will participate in the Thanksgiving Fellowship program run by the International House at the University of Chicago for eight international students to spend their Thanksgiving holiday with an American family in Southern Illinois. Northwestern University is also doing a similar program called Host an International, where university staff, faculty and students open their homes to international students on Thanksgiving.

It's natural that RedEye would ask me to handle its bowl preview. I'm an expert on bowls, after all. Not only do I eat from one (almost) exclusively, I also drink from the tall one made of porcelain when my owners aren't looking. Judge all you want, but it gets hot under all this fur. Where was I? Oh yeah, bowl predictions. Here are the seven games that caught my eye.   Dec. 15: Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Toledo vs. Utah State Watch because: Mmm, potatoes.

Some of my fondest memories of my early single years (notice I said “early”) in Chicago have to do with the holidays, when my friends and I would get together and not only drink, but make Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Those get-togethers always were enjoyable and sometimes uncomfortable - I'm thinking specifically of the time I accidentally eavesdropped on some rather loud sex being had in the bedroom next to the pantry where I was trying to sleep. Anyway, a friend introducing a new boyfriend or girlfriend into the group also could cause strange,...

If you're a transplant like me, you simply cannot make it home to spend all the holidays with the fam. This is not necessarily a bad thing. If it boils down to Thanksgiving or Christmas, many of us will choose to head home for the latter. This does not mean you should spend Thanksgiving alone. Au contraire, Thanksgiving is the time to get together with your urban family ... and get rip-roaring drunk. In my urban family, this tradition has come to be known as Wine Teeth. It started seven years ago, with a dialogue that went something like this: Me: Hey dude, are you...
