How To Be Sexy

How To Be Sexy
Sexy is an art. Like sculpture, painting or poetry, it comes more naturally to some than others. I love playing basketball, but I will never beat Joakim Noah in one-on-one. Similarly, I may never be able to purr pure sex appeal like Sophia Loren, who most guys would readily take to Pleasuretown even in her... Read more »

Free Music Friday: Rapper Mig Mora

Free Music Friday: Rapper Mig Mora
The first solo album by City of Win’s Mig Mora is the jam. Better yet, it’s free music to download. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t expect to like this. I get sent a ton of links to free music mixtapes. And there are a ton of Chicago rappers. I knew Mig Mora from his... Read more »

The Casket Collection Fall/Winter Launch - Chicago Fashion Designer

The Casket Collection Fall/Winter Launch - Chicago Fashion Designer
For the first fashion show of the first collection of a completely new label, the Casket Collection Fall/Winter streetwear reception was heaving with attractive and influential people. The turnout for Sean Mac‘s line was stunning to the point that it wasn’t immediately clear if there would be room for the runway. Chicago’s tastemakers are tripping... Read more »

Do You Know How Fabulous You Are?

Do You Know How Fabulous You Are?
That’s the text I woke up to this morning. I really thought about it. Do I? The answer is “no.” And I don’t think that’s uncommon. I know I’m not a hideous swamp monster, because I manage to go on dates with handsome men. Do I know I’m beautiful? Not really. I know I’m not... Read more »

You Love Heartbroken Taylor Swift

You Love Heartbroken Taylor Swift
I feel for Taylor Swift. I wouldn’t call myself a fan, even though this song has been lodged in my brain like a tumor for weeks. The poor girl caught a lot of flack at the Golden Globes this weekend for being the break up queen. It seems to me that this title is one... Read more »

It's Okay To Be A Bitch

Sometimes, it’s okay to be a bitch. The term can be too easily thrown around at times when you are being decisive, straight-forward and firm. Those are positive qualities. It’s good to know what you want. I’m not advocating that we all go around acting like jerks to each other. I mean, don’t go up... Read more »

Hot Chicago Bachelors 2009 - Where Are They Now

Ah yes, this handsome, talented and successful man.

<a href="www.twitter.com/arturogomezrrp">Arturo Gomez</a>is one of the partners of Rockit Ranch Productions. In other words, he's one of the dudes running Chicago's most buzzed about nightlife and dining scene.

Most recently, the group opened <a href="www.dragonranchchicago.com">Dragon Ranch Moonshine &amp; BBQ</a> in River North. This downhome fusion spot hosts <a href="http://www.dragonranch.com/2013/01/a-c-e-country-club/">Country Club</a>, a new Saturday party launched last week.

There is more to come as a sixth project is underway in the old Martini Ranch location, where RRP is developing a new Mexican concept. Margaritas and nachos are my personal poison, so I will be parking myself in a permanent seat.
In December 2009, I made a list of hot Chicago men that I would totally make out with. The list went a little wonky when I moved from one online host to another and most of the info went up in smoke! With a new year  and thoughts on crushes, I thought it might be fun to... Read more »

It's Just A Little Crush

The idea of a crush is terrifying. Even the word “crush” sounds like it would be miserable. It’s not a “hug of attraction,” instead it’s what happens when you are run over by a bulldozer. Just. Ouch. Like most things that are scary, crushes are also exhilarating. It’s the same reason horror movies and Shark Week... Read more »
