  5. Chicago Quarterly Review discovers the secret of successful publishingRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    When Chicago Quarterly Review was launched in 1994 it aspired to live up to its name and hasn't exactly succeeded-that is, it's published 19 issues in those 21 years. But founder Syed Haider tells me he's picked up the pace-the latest issue is the third in a year's time.

  7. The dark comedy Buzzard brings us face-to-face with the loser we might have becomeRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 1, 2012 | Chicago Reader

    Since Frownland , director Ronald Bronstein's divisive and darkly comic character study of a New York door-to-door salesman who alienates everyone he encounters, the best American independent films have tended to revolve around protagonists whose surly demeanor gets them relegated to the margins of society. Drew Tobia's See You Next Tuesday deals with an impoverished, pregnant store clerk, the Safdie Brothers' Heaven Knows What with destitute heroin addicts, and in both cases their revolting character traits are tempered by the wretched hands they've been dealt.

    Paul McGee and five other local drink slingers pick a favorite libation-and where in Chicago they like it best. During the year Oliveira spent living in Brazil during college, she often drank the country's national cocktail, the caipirinha - a simple drink consisting of muddled limes, sugar, crushed ice, and cachaca, a liquor made from distilled sugarcane juice.

  9. The Reader's Bar Issue 2015Read the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    All sorts of improbable tales have been uttered by booze-loosened lips about the unseen namesake of Danny's Tavern , that unlikely drinking destination nestled in a two-flat on a largely residential Bucktown street. Perhaps the most enduring story of the bunch I heard was the one about how, back in the 80s, a notorious party animal named Danny hosted so many liquor-soaked bashes at his shabby residence that the city eventually threw up its hands and granted him a tavern license, if only to allow inspectors to more easily keep tabs on the place.

  10. How Alice of Alice's Lounge went from beautician to bar ownerRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    To the uninitiated, Alice's Lounge is an unassuming corner tap with a blink-and-you'll-miss-it facade. But once Alice Boron permits you, with a quick touch of a door-buzzer button, entrance into her Avondale domain, you realize it's an oasis filled with cheap drinks, good company, and some of the best karaoke in town courtesy of Fred Wood , a middle-aged man who plays a mean inflatable saxophone.

  11. Rosa of Rosa's Lounge brought the blues to Logan SquareRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    In 1984, opening a blues lounge in Logan Square made little business sense. The neighborhood was predominantly Hispanic, had a moderate gang problem, and was decidedly far-flung in relation to Chicago's other blues hubs on the south and north sides.

  13. Bernice never imagined she'd be running Bernice's TavernRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    It's not altogether unbelievable that Bernice's Tavern will celebrate its 50th anniversary in May. After all, the heart-of-Bridgeport watering hole is a tangle of just the kind of dusty tchotchkes, vintage instruments, random framed photos, and other artifacts that betray a bar's age. A painting on the wall behind the bar, depicting a woman in a bikini reclining with a glass of whiskey, was actually in place before Bernice Badauskas owned the tavern - back when Adam's Place occupied the address.

    Thursday Mar 12 | Chicago Reader

    "I'm working-class," says Danny Cimaglio, when asked to describe his occupation. The 63-year-old's matter-of-fact demeanor and scrappy work history were the norm in Bucktown back in 1986, the year Cimaglio and some friends opened Danny's Tavern , a funky bar in a solidly blue-collar hood that helped usher in the area's bohemian phase.

    Wednesday Mar 11 | Chicago Reader

    Two of my favorite people to talk to about the restaurant business are Liz and Mark Mendez, co-owners of the West Loop Spanish wine bar Vera . They are thoughtful, unafraid to be frank about the ups and downs-plus they run a place small enough that they can more easily put their ideas into practice.
