Don't Ask A Single Woman If She's Dating

Don't Ask A Single Woman If She's Dating
Don’t ask a woman with a slightly bulging stomach “When are you due?” Don’t ask a married couple “So when are you going to have kids?” And don’t ask a woman who isn’t wearing a wedding ring “Are you dating anyone?” This is what I hear when someone asks that: “Does anyone think you’re desirable...

It's Okay To Be Single On Valentine's Day

It's Okay To Be Single On Valentine's Day
Why do people get so bitter around Valentine’s Day? If they’re single, they’re mad about being single and walking the frozen February road to spinsterhood. (While I’m at it, let’s bring that “I’M SINGLE!!!!” stuff down a notch.) If they’re in a relationship, there’s pressure to drop some major dough on expensive flowers, cards, gifts... 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 »

Can we take the "I'M SINGLE!" down a notch?

Can we take the "I'M SINGLE!" down a notch?
I’m kinda sick of all these “I’m single and fabulous. I don’t need anybody. It’s all about me.” anthems.  At what point did it become mandatory to be aggressively single? Good job, great friends, loads of dates or not,  it would be a total lie to say that there aren’t times when I feel so... Read more »

10 Ways To Celebrate National PDA Day Alone

10 Ways To Celebrate National PDA Day Alone
Apparently, it’s National PDA Day.  To those of you who never had your science teacher shout this at you and your football player beau (and by “those of you”, I mean “me”), PDA means “public displays of affection.”  And although Mr. Schumacher may have been trying to dissuade you, today it’s meant to be celebrated....

Back On The Market Party at The Fifty/50

Back On The Market Party at The Fifty/50
When adjusting to a break up, you have two options: 1) Pine away after someone who has made the decision to discard you 2) Accept the situation for what it is and react to it.  Do you stay home on weekends and cry because Justin Timberlake hasn’t responded to any of your letters?  Of course...

Sexy Rx: Moonshine and Meat at Lillie's Q

My dad's parents are straight from the hills of West Virginia.  My great uncle actually ran a still during prohibition and another great uncle gave my dad a bottle of his own branded moonshine at our last family gathering.  I had a reason to be terrified of this little travel size jelly jar.  In the end, I actually found myself sipping the moonshine, because it was, well, good!  It was very smooth and tasted a little like vanilla.  I highly recommed taking a sip followed by a bit of sauce drenched pulled pork.  The pairing is eye-opening.  Look out for a moonshine cocktail menu very soon!
It’s Friday night, you just got paid.  And, if you’re single, it’s time to get…a Sexy Rx!  It’s a special perscription for that very intimate case of the blues… This week, we did some road research at Lillie’s Q, a brand new BBQ joint in Bucktown.  Hit the jump and get your sexy on.
