Happy Friday from Chicago, Gang!
This week's Health Care and The Independent Contractor Blog Post has caused quite a stir in the Blogosphere. I'm thinking today's Chicago Neighborhood News, covering the Chicago Neighborhoods of Portage Park, Lincoln Park, The Loop, and Old Town, as well as the Chicago Suburb of Oak Park IL, will be a bit less controversial!
Here's this week's take, from our Team Member Cathy Mallers -
When trying to find a unique magazine or newspaper, it's really hard to know where to go. Sometimes, even the library does not have what you need. Worse yet, you may have to wait order what you want.
Enter into the picture, local treasure City Newsstand. Ironically this is not a corner stand, but a full brick and mortar location. If you like trucks, check out the newly published quarterly True Blue Trucks Magazine. To read more about this great gem, click here.
Sometimes, I like to be a tourist in Chicago and start looking for unique shows or events. I found this information from one of my favorite sites for events, The Local Tourist.
In the Golden Age of Magic, during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Chicago was a major center for magic in the United States. Great magicians gathered here to amaze audiences in theaters and parlors, nightclubs and showrooms, restaurants and bars throughout the city.

The Museum of Science and Industry has received a heart transplant this week.
The new exhibit called, "You! The Experience," is scheduled to open on October 8. Previously there was a big walk through heart that families could view showcasing how the human body works. Sadly, the old heart was made of plaster of Paris around a pillar and could not be dismantled, but was broken into pieces.

Old Town is home to newly opened restaurant, 33 Club. From the elegant herringbone floors to the carefully arranged bottles in the floor-to-ceiling display case that separates the front bar from the main dining room, no detail is overlooked.
Chef Daniel Kelly serves a lineup of classics starts with dishes such as crab and shrimp cocktail ($10), French onion soup ($7) and Caesar salad ($8) and proceeds without much fanfare to homey plates like roasted chicken ($18) and broiled Lake Superior whitefish ($18). Chef Kelly knows steak having come from Tramanto's Steak & Seafood in Wheeling, so be sure to try the 12-ounce New York strip ($30), 16-ounce bone-in rib eye ($33) or signature 8-ounce fillet ($28) with truffle demi-glace.

It is a fact that home foreclosures are impacting the entire nation. One thing that most people going through this difficulty find is that they are unsure of what options are available. We've all heard about the loan modification program that President Obama's administration passed in May.
This weekend Oak Park residents can meet with local communities and housing organizations that will provide a hands-on tutorial on how to tap into the federal program aimed at modifying troubled mortgages.
