  • Pj's
    Established in 1990, the bar and grill formerly known as Pete's Pizza took on its new nommé de cuisine in 2008 after extending the menu to encompass burgers, sandwiches, pasta, and Greek fare from chefs Spiro Theodoropoulos and John Patouhas. The hugely varied pub fare weighs down tables in the expansive, relaxed dining room. In the adjoining bar, raucous games of darts, pool, and sudoku wait to break out. During warmer weather, diners take in fresh air on the stone patio that also provides the ideal amount of give for toe-tapping to the sporadically scheduled live music.

  • Teddy O' Brian's
    At first glance, Teddy O'Brian's comes off as a pretty unassuming watering hole. But just a bit of investigation proves that it's the kind of place that has something for everyone. The tavern's been there since the 1950s, so it attracts the neighborhood old-timers, but flat-screen TVs and corn-hole boards satisfy younger crowds. No-fuss drinkers can order bottles of Budweiser and PBR, while craft-beer fans will revel in a rotating drink list that has included Deschutes Chainbreaker White and Northcoast PranQster. No matter what kind of suds you're sipping, you can soak up the libations with a menu of pub food that's available all hours. And they don't skimp on entertainment either. There's open-mic nights on Wednesdays and a karaoke machine on Thursdays, much to the relief of those who can never remember the words to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

  • Talk Cinema - Chicago
    After nearly two decades obsessing over cinema as a film critic for Variety and editor-in-chief of Film Comment, Harlan Jacobson founded Talk Cinema—a series of early film screenings hosted at multiple theaters around the country. Each year, Harlan handpicks independent and foreign films from the world's leading festivals, often resulting in some of the first public screenings of award-winning prestige pictures. After each screening, he hosts experts such as scholars, filmmakers, and critics from the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune during discussions modeled after those held at festivals and particularly cultured kids' treehouses. Talk Cinema also occasionally hosts guided tours of festivals in international cities such as Reykjavik, Havana, Palm Springs and Locarno.
