Kick off December with a Britney Spears drag queen brunch
I usually hate the cold this time of year, but does anyone else find it slightly alarming that it’s going to be 60 degrees this weekend?

It’s after Halloween which means retailers across the country have already dusted off the Christmas trees and stuck them right in the middle of every mall. Giuliana and Bill Rancic are even lighting the Marshall Field’s Macy’s on State Street Christmas Tree tomorrow. I’m taking a stand and will not be introducing holiday events until... Read more »
