    Approximately two and a half weeks after DNAinfo broke the secret about Hot "G" Dog, word had spread sufficiently that the place was half full at four o'clock on a Friday afternoon. The secret was, of course, that the unassuming-looking new hot dog joint in Uptown is owned and operated by Juan Carlos and Octavio Garcia, two brothers who worked on the line at the Hot Doug's for nearly its entire existence and, after it closed last fall, received Doug Sohn's blessing to carry on his legacy in their own place-including the specialty sausages and duck-fat fries.

  16. A Publican bartender uses banana ketchup to cross cultural dividesRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday May 18 | Chicago Reader

    Banana ketchup originated in the Philippines during World War II, when tomatoes were scarce and resourceful locals used bananas instead, dyeing the concoction red so it would resemble tomato-based ketchup. If that sounds blasphemous, consider the fact that ketchup was not originally made with tomatoes; the name comes from a Chinese word for pickled fish brine or fish sauce.

    For better or worse, former Gage chef Dirk Flanigan is largely responsible for bringing back the Scotch egg over the last decade, as Chicago writhed in the throes of its love affair with gastropubbery. The snack quickly proliferated all over town, and for every molten ovum core jacketed in crispy, hot sausage there were a dozen fryer-petrified fossils as rock solid as a carbon-frozen Han Solo.

    Friday May 15 | Chicago Reader

    At last, there is finally some good news for the dogs of Chicago, who have spent much of this spring in quarantine, far from their beloved dog parks and day cares and even the not-so-beloved groomers, because of the terrible and deadly canine flu that has swept the city: The epidemic is almost over. Rejoice, oh dogs! Bark and chase your tails in celebration! Soon you will be able to sniff each other's butts again without causing panic in your humans!
