Mistakes happen. Even though he didn't tune in for Monday's Season 2 premiere of Anthony Bourdain's “The Layover,” in which the chef and culinary media personality tours cities' food offerings in a short period of time, Longman and Eagle owner Bruce Finkelman was in a forgiving mood. A graphic for the Travel Channel show that introduced the Logan Square spot incorrectly spelled its name “Longmen and Eagle.” Finkelman didn't seem fazed when RedEye let him know about the error.

'Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring - because they were all out at a bar, getting drunk. That's the story of Thanksgiving Eve, more commonly known as Black Wednesday. Maybe it's the impending four-day weekend, the influx of out-of-town friends or just the desire to kick off the holiday season with a big, boozy bang, but Nov. 21 is one of the biggest going-out nights of the year. Whether you're looking to throw down - or avoid throwing up like last year - we've put together three party plans to help you do this unofficial drinking holiday justice.

If we've learned anything about those of you who voted for RedEye sports Stud and Dud of the year, it's that you love monstrous dudes slamming into each other. Uhhh, let us explain. By that we mean you're big fans of pro wrestling and hate the fact that hockey's elite players are on the shelf right now. After two weeks of voting on RedEye Sports' Facebook page, CM Punk took home the Stud of the Year title for the second straight year. The Chicago native successfully defended the WWE Championship in April by defeating Chris Jericho.

The CTA is having trouble with large gaps in its bus service, according to performance metrics released this week. From April through November, the agency did not meet its monthly target for the amount of time between two buses on a route, according to a November performance report. A CTA spokeswoman blamed the shortfall on the five-month southern Red Line overhaul that required multiple shuttle buses to ferry riders to the Green Line and other stops. "You get one traffic jam and it causes a ripple effect," CTA spokeswoman Tammy Chase said.

Dear Jay Cutler, It was recently brought to my attention that you might have read a column I wrote earlier this year. And to pretty much everyone alive's amazement, you acknowledged it, tweeting it was "completely false" and subsequently blocking RedEye on Twitter. I never meant to hurt you. It was satire. Like Mark Twain books, Herman Cain and reality TV. It wasn't real. It was a joke. And frankly, you blocking RedEye over my column is funnier than anything I've ever written.

Welcome to Blackout Wednesday, sports fans. The day we all return to our hometown roots, drink ourselves into oblivion and wake up Thanksgiving morning with no recollection of what happened the night before. Well, at least that's what I do. While you're trying to piece together the events of the night before as you choke down dry turkey and stuffing, count your blessings if your alcohol-fueled celebration completely erased these terrible Chicago sports events from your memory.

Winter in Chicago hasn't been brutal yet. It's actually perfect weather to lace up your skates and show off spins and jumps on the ice. And it hasn't been too warm that the ice at skating rinks around the city have melted. The Millennium Park ice rink has a high-tech chilling system that lies underneath the concrete to manufacture a hard layer of ice and keep it frozen, said Matt Nielson, deputy commissioner of the city's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, which oversees the park.

Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite days of the year. There's football. There are celebrities. There are funny commercials. There's beer - uh, I mean, water. There's food. Ahhhh, the food. Among canines, Super Bowl Sunday is among the top table-scraps days of the year, right behind Thanksgiving and that day our humans trip over us after retrieving the pizza from the deliveryman. I didn't mean to be right under your feet, no sir. The real reason for Super Sunday, of course, is the NFL's title game.
