At Chicago Firearm Training, chief instructors John Frycek and Jamie Tallerico combine their NRA training certifications with field experience as private investigators and personal-security specialists. The two assemble their instructional team from experienced law-enforcement officers, who receive ongoing training so they can pass on the most current armed defensive tactics to students. In addition to keeping their team's skills sharp, John and Jamie assign two or three instructors to each class. Coupled with enrollment limits, this approach helps ensure instructors can give individual attention and greet each student in their class by humming them a personalized theme song.

Riis Park becomes an international celebration during the National Latin American Festival. Consulates, tourist bureaus, and cultural organizations from South America, Central America, and the Caribbean are all invited to the three-day party, which kicks off with a grand opening ceremony. Once there, dignitaries and guests can taste from a continent-spanning lineup of food vendors, take in a beauty pageant, and catch some of the finest Latin American musical acts the Western Hemisphere has to offer. There's Fulanito, a Dominican-American group that mashes up house and merengue music; Chicago's own Escuela de Rancho, a norteño quintet who all share singing duties; and Leslie Grace, whose bilingual, honey-sweet cover of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" shot up the charts last year.
