The rogue marketing campaign to bring ABC's "Cougar Town" back to TV came to Chicago Saturday, and star Busy Philipps was ready to party. "The cast will tell you that I'm the most not like my character," the Oak Park native told the crowd of about 100-some fans at Lincoln Park bar Racine Plumbing. "But I'm gonna bring a little bit of Laurie tonight and I'm gonna get drunk!" Philipps and writer Melody Derloshon drank, posed for photos, played the show's invented game Penny Can, danced and treated fans to two never-aired episodes of the hoot of a sitcom about a group of wine-swilling friends.

Sure, the scenery is bested only by the attractiveness of the cast … well, not quite. Allen primarily populates “Rome” with gorgeous women and average-looking dudes, continuing his longtime, onscreen fantasy that pairs an ordinary schmo with a woman wildly out of his league.

(I mean come on -- she and Jay went to Cuba) Zahi Hawass did not get the memo. After Beyonce was late to an appointment with Hawass to a tour, he took it upon himself to ban the singer from the Egyptian pyramids, according to Vanity Fair. "She said she would come at 3 p.m. but she came late. I said 'You have to say I'm sorry I'm late.' But she didn't open her mouth," Hawass said.
