*** (out of four) “The Muppets” star/co-writer Jason Segel sees nothing wrong with adults loving to entertain children of all ages with puppets. Neither does Kevin Clash, who grew up admiring Jim Henson and later befriended the entertainment innovator as Clash worked on “Labyrinth” and “Sesame Street” and, through his voice and puppetry, turned Elmo into the superstar he is today. This 73-minute documentary by Constance Marks and Philip Shane traces Clash's life from his Baltimore-area adolescence - where...

Goodbye, warmth. The CTA is set to shut off hundreds of heatlamps on its non-subway platforms tomorrow. Heat became available Nov. 1. Typically, though, a few heat lamps manage to stay on past the April 1 deadline because workers don't turn them off. Every year, a few riders tell RedEye their heat lamps remained on into April. The heat may not mean much today, with highs expected to reach 66 degrees, according to the Chicago Tribune Weather Center. But the rest of the week has highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s. Enjoy the heat--while it lasts.  Want more?

Full disclosure : We originally began this project back in mid-January. Normally, it's reasonably warm enough during Chicago winters to strut out every so often in a pair of tights. Enter the winter of 2014. Now that spring finally has semi-sprung -- and by that we mean it's above freezing -- it's time to debut our official test of the latest tights on the market. Treat your legs to a new outfit -- surely your old tights are ripped and holey by now. Spanx Patterned Tight-End Tights Peek-a-Boo ($32 suggested retail)

You could probably set your watch by the debut of glogg at Simon's Tavern in Andersonville. Every year on Thanksgiving Eve, the charmingly divey bar dishes out its first pours of the boozy Swedish drink. But now that temperatures have dipped and holiday shopping has driven us to tears, hot spiced wine seems especially necessary. So consider this your public service announcement: Glogg season is in full swing. This year, as they have for decades, Simon's serves up $5 cups of the seasonal beverage, which the owners brew in 15-gallon batches using their traditional recipe.

During warm periods of fall such as this, people often throw around the term "Indian summer" when they're raving about the weather. But like so many offhand phrases, people don't always know what exactly it means, let alone where it came from. When it comes to the origin of the phrase, there is little-to-no consensus or evidence from which to trace a true etymology. One Chicago-area linguistics professor responded to an interview request by simply saying, "I have no idea. " What people can agree on, however, is that the term was probably introduced in the 18th...

Chicago folk-rockers the The Wall & the Window  answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire . Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye! What makes your live show great? It's very intimate, and what you hear is what you get. Sometimes we pull out the circus and use all the instruments we know how to play. And sometimes we strip it down to just the essentials: two voices and a guitar.   Describe your sound in five words or less. Handcrafted folk-pop tunes.

Study Hall 2016 W. Chicago Ave. 312-733-4255 My latest trip to Ukrainian Village led me to Study Hall, nestled on Chicago Avenue. Fashion-savvy owner Naoko Nagano said the boutique carries vintage and vintage-inspired apparel for men and women and plenty of nautical- and '70s-style prints. "We're less dependent on trends," Nagano said. Though the sleek store features designers from all over the place, Nagano would like to incorporate more pieces from Chicago designers. "We have a lot of great talent here," she said.

** (out of four) My wife and I just adopted my in-laws' 7-year-old dog, an extremely lovable miniature dachshund named Rosie. I am exactly the right person to find warmth in “Darling Companion,” in which Beth (Diane Keaton) rescues a 7-year-old dog from the side of a snowy Colorado road. A year later, the dog runs off when Beth's husband Joseph (Kevin Kline), a self-absorbed spine surgeon, pays more attention to the person on the other end of his cell phone than the pooch, dubbed Freeway, sprinting after a deer.

**1/2 (out of four) To repeat: The time has come to can it with the princess stories. Really. Disney's latest animated musical, “Frozen,” makes nice statements about sisterly bonds and romantic motivations; why must this be done in the shadow of a palace? That's not the only question worth asking about a film (inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's “The Snow Queen”) whose songs triumph over its story. In a prologue, young princess Elsa (Idina Menzel) uses her unusual powers to create ice and snow and play with her little sis, Anna (Kristen Bell)
