PHOTOS: Local big ten fans bleed scarlet and gray

Die-hard Ohio State fans frequently rally at Mickey’s Bar & Patio to cheer on the Buckeyes, and despite Saturday’s less than impressive weather, dozens showed up (and out) to support the long-standing rivalry against the Michigan Wolverines. I felt like I’d traveled back in time to the north side of OSU’s campus where my girlfriends…

Ponzu Sushi on Clark is seriously underrated

Let’s talk sushi.  While there is endless debate over where to find the best sushi in Chicago, I will preface by saying that Ponzu Sushi is not in the running. That’s not to say their sushi isn’t delicious, it’s just that you can spend a lot more money for a sushi experience in Chicago that’s,…

Party in the park: Chef's bbq benefit

Party in the park: Chef’s bbq benefit

Celebrations for my recent triumph over a “food coma” came to a screeching halt, because my doctor says that people who live in Lincoln Park are not only at a higher risk for over indulging, but living anywhere in Chicago exposes people to the highest level of cuisine debauchery.  As much as I hate to…
