A local group of artists, designers and engineers, collectively known as MB Labs, took a new approach to musical innovation, earning them the top spot in the 2013 Red Bull Creation, a nationwide themed-building competition. MB Labs' team that competed this past weekend in New York City included Bill Fienup, Hyuns Hong, David Hull and Harvey Moon. It took them less than 72 hours to create Autoloop, a musical instrument that embodied the competition theme of “Signal to Noise,” and beat inventions from five other teams.

Chicago native Carmen Marron was working as a guidance counselor in Phoenix when she decided to make a film addressing the experience of Latino teenagers. "Go For It," the dance drama that she wrote, directed and produced herself, was released earlier this year by Pantelion Films, a division of Lionsgate. It comes out on DVD Sept. 27. We caught up with Marron by phone from her home in L.A. to talk about her film projects and the state of Latino film. Why did you feel that it was important to set "Go For It" in Chicago?

The Chicago culinary scene is bigger in Texas. At least five Chicago cheftestants have been awarded the coveted “Top Chef: Texas” jacket in the latest season of the show, which premiered Wednesday night. The final slate of 16 cheftestants, which may include a sixth Chicago chef, likely will be revealed next week. In Wednesday's episode, some of the chefs worked with pig and rabbit to create their dishes. Yawn. It seems “Top Chef” has fallen into the “Project Runway” trap of repeating lame ideas for challenges.

"South Park" returns tonight with the mid-Season 16 premiere in which creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker take on the concussion epidemic in football. I doubt the comic duo had time to sneak in a reference to Monday's bad reffing in the Packers-Seahawks game, but you never know. (And wouldn't that be awesome?) In "Sarcastaball," parent Randy Marsh implements changes to the South Park Elementary rule book. His new version of the game becomes the most popular sport in the U.S. The preview hints that maybe Randy suffers his own version of a...

Unless you've spent the year immersed in nothing but "Real Housewives" - and if you have, thanks for tearing yourself away long enough to read this - you've probably heard the news that 2012 is the Mayans' predicted Year of the Apocalypse. And really, what better place to begin the countdown than Wednesday's 16th annual Northalsted Halloween Parade, which always features to-die-for costumes for both dead and undead humans and pets? Better yet, this year's parade also features a new theme of Apocalypse 2012, a new start time...

Andy Gould, one of the owners of Scofflaw, definitely has a sense of humor. A redacted press release posted on Scofflaw's blog Wednesday was a playful way to announce a new Logan Square bar that the team has in the works. But because details are scarce, it led to some speculation, including a rumor that the bar would be "hillbilly-" or "country-Western-" themed. "I can go on the record and say that we are not [building] a hillbilly line-dancing bar," Gould said. "Though I think it's kind of hilarious and kind of enjoy it. I don't know...
