    Wednesday Jan 20 | Chicago Reader

    There's an elevated floor behind the bar at Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio, the new pasta-forward restaurant from former Spiaggia executive chef Sarah Grueneberg, that looks bigger than the restaurant's actual kitchen. While it plays host to a remarkable piece of stagecraft, it's also integral to the food being served there.

    Jan 12, 2016 | Chicago Reader

    So far 2016 has been pretty brutal when it comes to important musicians dying: Paul Bley, Pierre Boulez, David Bowie. On Friday one of Chicago's greatest soul and gospel singers, Otis Clay , suffered a fatal heart attack at age 73. The Mississippi native got his start singing gospel, and his gritty, expressive hard-soul style conveyed inextricable links to the church.

    Jan 11, 2016 | Chicago Reader

    Despite the current deep-freeze, we've had a remarkably mild-some would say anemic-winter so far. Still, there have already been a couple of nasty snow and sleet storms, and for days afterward, you didn't have to look hard to find unshoveled sidewalks and impassible bike lanes.

    Jan 11, 2016 | Chicago Reader

    I was never a huge David Bowie fan. He was part of the musical background of my life-particularly the year I worked at a Barnes & Noble and the staff unanimously decided that Best of Bowie was the only one of the CDs chosen by corporate that we would work to; "The Jean Genie" had a particularly good rhythm for shelving.

    Jan 11, 2016 | Chicago Reader

    Because someone left a 1997 issue of the New England Quarterly lying on a table in the Newberry lounge, I've just read a commentary on the Indian rebellion of 1675 to 1678, which are remembered as King Philip's War. As ships continued to arrive from Europe, natives who'd lived at peace with Puritan settlers were no longer willing to tolerate the unrelenting encroachment on their lands.
