Time Out Chicago is a weekly publication that keeps Chicagoans up to speed on the latest in music, dance, sports, film, art, dining, clubs, comedy, books, theater, special events, and more. Each issue distills this glut of information in the Around Town section, whose recent article Life after Lois chronicles the career of former Department of Cultural Affairs head Lois Weisberg, who resigned in January after 20 years at the helm. Lovers of all things listy will enjoy compendia such as 100 Best Things We Ate (and Drank) in 2010, 50 Unheard-of Bars, and 137 reasons why sex and dating are out and belt purses are in. Every recommendation comes garnished with witty, concise descriptions and glossy color photos.
Whether readers have recently blown into the Windy City or have lived here since Chicago was an onion-peddling gastro-wagon, Time Out Chicago will artfully dissect The City of Big Shoulders like a samurai sword through a biology-class frog.
<i>Time Out Chicago</i>
Informative articles and reviews of the city's hottest concerts, spas, nightclubs, restaurants, and events are laced with a signature wit by the authorities at Time Out Chicago. Sifting through a rolodex of lists, Chicagoans can investigate the magazine's citywide entertainment rankings, such as Top 10 Dance Clubs, Top Vegetarian Spots, and Top Hats, none of which are top hats. Issues also indulge in a dash of dating advice, job-hunt leads, and a bank of insightful feature stories that further flesh out the city's cultural, political, and social life. The weekly print and digital mag's high-quality editorial content is accompanied by skillfully arrayed photos that capture the people, places, and trained bears that keep the city running.
