Robert Redford walks the Green carpet at AMC River East Theatre and gives us the world :-)


Film director and actor, Robert Redford, attended the Chicago premiere of his film, ‚'Lions for Lambs,‚'one of the falls most anticipated feature film releases. The event benefited the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a national non-profit environmental organization that has recently brought its aggressive environmental advocacy to the Midwest .


Redford, an NRDC trustee for more than 30 years,walked down the premiere’s “green” carpet, alongside Mayor Richard M. Daley and wife Maggie and other prominent local figures from sports, business, and cultural affairs. He also paid tribute to NRDC, one of the country’s most innovative and effective environmental organizations, which opened its Midwest office in Chicago in January 2007.

The new office already has scored a number of victories against pollution and invasive species in Lake Michigan, and has beaten back legislation in Illinois that would have made it harder to protect local communities against emissions from oil refineries and coal-fired power plants.

Redford’s film, “Lions for Lambs,” opens this Friday and is already receiving praise as a powerful and gripping story that pulls back the curtain on politics, news and a nation divided to explore the human consequences of a complicated war.

Astrologer Susan Miller wows the crowd at The Apple Store




Wildly popular New York based astrologer and author Susan Miller made an appearance at the Apple Store discussing her site astrolgyzone.com site and the TimePassages astrology software.
She did readings for a few audience members and made a few celebrity predictions as well. She said that while Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will probably have a bio-child within a year,Brad's ex Jennifer Aniston will probably not have a relationship(at least a good one ?) until 2009. She also shocked the audience with a revelation that a popular male actor may not be straight. I'm not going to mention that here because he knows who he is and we have mutual friends!

Miller talked for about 2 hours and unfortunately Apple had not received the shipment of software to sell!

Melvin B's on State-closes down after 18 years


Melvin B's on State and Cedar. Closed. Forever.Eventually to be replaced by a hotel.

I happened to be in the neighborhood the day they were deconstructing the inside and outside of Melvin B's in the Rush Street area and putting all the boxed liquor in a U-Haul truck.

I'm sure the local highrise neighbors are thrilled with the closing and are celebrating one less loud bar in the area. But to the regulars,this place was..nirvana.


I guess you have to be 20 something or pretty shit faced to stumble in there.But it kept alot of people mighty happy for a very long time. Home is where the 'shower' is for some..

And here is something 99.9% of the Chicago population might not know.. Robert Vaughn,the star from the 1960s show,'Man From Uncle' stayed upstairs at the Hotel Cedar' back in the late 1940s or 1950s(year escapes me). Believe it or not,once upon a time that place was considered classy!

So,will the last one to leave,please turn out the lights.

He will also take on his accusers in the doping scandal that has tainted his career.
Floyd discussed his book with the audience and also mentioned he had a nice bike ride on the bike ppath earlier that day.

Chances are he walked across the street to his event since there really is nowhere to park a bicycle on The Mag Mile!

Gabe Kaplan--Welcome Back Kotter ! at Borders books


Gabe Kaplan – Discussion and Book Signing for 'Kotter’s Back' – Borders Michigan Avenue location.


Thirty years ago, if you wanted to pull a prank on someone, you’d toss out a few banana peels and hope that some sucker would slip. But with the advent of the internet, pranksters have enjoyed a new revolution in their tomfoolery, reveling in the anonymity that the web has to offer. That said, however, name recognition can also have its perks when pulling pranks on unsuspecting web-dwellers. Enter Gabe Kaplan of 1970s Welcome Back, Kotter fame. In Kotter's Back, Gabe Kaplan shows us that with the right sense of humor and a gullible recipient, checking your inbox can truly become an uproarious adventure.
