  • Chicago Sky
    The 'K' of the Chicago Sky's logo towers above the other letters, two thin prongs poking out from the top?a nod to the most famous of the city's iconic buildings. Fittingly inspired by the Chicago skyline, the Sky's uniforms have represented the Windy City since 2006. In those years, some of the WNBA's top players have donned the blue and yellow threads, including Candice Dupree, Epiphanny Price, and Sylvia Fowles?a defensive star who also wore red, white, and blue in London in 2012. In 2010, the Sky transitioned from the UIC Pavilion to a new, permanent home court, packing its neatly folded coaches into suitcases and moving to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont.

  • Gene Siskel Film Center
    The Gene Siskel Film Center is as famous to Chicago film-lovers as its namesake TV film critic has been to national audiences. As the Loop's only movie house, it draws crowds with an eclectic mix of programming rather than with blockbusters and violent popcorn battles. The Film Center has been around under the umbrella of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1972, and its curators are devoted to the art of cinema at least as much as the business. A typical weekend night might offer a documentary, a concert film, a foreign classic, and an innovative modern drama?maybe even a world premiere or a guest artist appearance. The theaters themselves make it easy to be sucked into the screen, with ultra-plush stadium-style seats, a cafe that serves wine and espresso in addition to traditional concessions, and capacity for 16mm, 35mm, and digital projections. According to Chicagoist, it's not simply a pleasant moviegoing experience?"point-for-point, the Siskel is the finest place to catch a movie in Chicago."

  • Martins International Culture
    The 31st annual Chicago Music Awards honors the city's best entertainers from all genres during a night of performances from established melody makers and up-and-coming acts. The three teen brothers of rock group Rebelmann energize the audience before switching stage space with Sugar Blue, a Grammy Award–winning harmonica virtuoso who honed his skills while playing along to Bob Dylan records and crafting an enormous collection of blown-glass figurines. The evening will also include songs from the six top finalists in this year's highly competitive Chicago Emerging Star Contest as a group that boasts a 13-year-old rapper, a 10-year-old musical prodigy, and a male R & B group competes for a cash prize and a solid-chocolate microphone.
