    On Tuesday I was trudging through the mind-numbing details of Mayor Rahm's latest handout to wealthy bankers when the City Council, at the mayor's urging, voted to hike the minimum wage in Chicago .

    Challenged by Eric Houser of Parson's Chicken & Fish to create a cocktail with spotted dick, Graham Courter of the Matchbox first had to locate the British steamed suet pudding.

    Friday Nov 28 | Chicago Reader

    Assuming you're not running with the bulls today at Target or Walmart, your priority might be to do something to offset yesterday's hours of holiday excess. And to that end maybe you're considering a $10 bottle of cold-pressed juice at Owen + Alchemy, Logan Square's "modern juice apothecary," a self-description that seems dangerously close to medical chicanery if you subscribe to the dictionary definition of apothecary as "a pharmacy or drugstore."

    Friday Nov 28 | Chicago Reader

    The jazz world is filled with immensely skilled musicians who spend most of their careers in relative anonymity because they never manage to establish a truly original voice. They may be peerless sidemen-playing charts perfectly and delivering solid solos-but if and when they lead a band there's nothing about the music that distinguishes it from the past or present.

    Friday Nov 28 | Chicago Reader

    I can think of nine million reasons Jesus Garcia can't beat Rahm Emanuel, a number that grows daily as the gifts to the mayor's campaign fund roll in. On Monday, Emanuel's committee reported the arrival of a contribution from billionaire former hedge fund manager John D. Arnold , who lives on Lazy Lane in Houston, but cares enough about the mayor's race in Chicago to put a hundred grand down on Rahm.
