Drink (er, ring) in Halloween at Roadhouse SixtySix

My friend Cat works at Roadhouse SixtySix, a cool bar located at 3330 N. Clark in Wrigleyville. I often run into her after getting my namaste on at Moksha Yoga Center a few doors down. Cat always compliments my writing (aw) and gives me a hug, even though I’m usually sweaty and spacey. If you’re…

DMK? More like DMmmmmmK

Remember how kids used to tease: “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?” Note to self: investigate the legality of marrying a DMK Burger Bar (3954 N. Sheffield Ave.) bun. Have you ever tried to take a nap on a burger bun? I have. DMK’s thick, plush, flour-dusted buns double as…

I don’t mean to brag, but I’m chock-full of useless facts, specifically pop culture-related useless facts.  I have wasted hours—nay, weeks– on gossip sites and Wikipedia.  My unparalleled morbid curiosity with celebrities really knows no bounds. So it might come as a surprise to absolutely no one that I love pop culture trivia.  It’s a…
