"Voting in the Heights" 2012 Edition

With the 2012 election evening upon us, what are you going to be doing? To be completely honest, I didn’t vote this year and for no good reason other than I hadn’t followed the candidates or issues very closely (and being that Obama is most likely going to win Illinois big), so I didn’t want...

Most You'd Pay For A Gallon Of Gas...

Most You'd Pay For A Gallon Of Gas...
Most of us have a dollar amount in mind when they start to think they’d hit the freak out button and debate on if their turn of the key was absolutely necessary or not. My amount is the $4 mark, which according to this USA Today story, might not even be that high compared to... Read more »

Things A Movie Theater Employee Won't Ever Tell You...

Things A Movie Theater Employee Won't Ever Tell You...
Recently I was surfing around the internets and I came across this article from Readers Digest about the “13 Things A Movie Theater Employee Won’t Tell You”. It brought back many many memories from my days of working at the Randhurst Mall General Cinemas (or AMC in my post college days). Being that it was my... Read more »

New Years Resolutions...Who's Got 'Em?

New Years Resolutions...Who's Got 'Em?
I for one am not a huge believer in having a “NYR”…New Years Resolution. It always ends up being an out of reach goal that 95% of “us” never actually follow through in the proceeding 365 days, except for those hard willed few. Most of the time I think it’s blown into a bigger deal... Read more »

Woodfield Mall is "Home for the Holiday's" with T-Mobile

Woodfield Mall is "Home for the Holiday's" with T-Mobile
A few weeks back I mentioned a special event that was taking place at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg with T-Mobile and their “Home for the Holiday’s” campaign. The cool part is no one (not even me) realized how big of an event it was going to turn out to be. According to a recent article,... Read more »

The "In-Between" Stages of Halloween Enjoyment

The "In-Between" Stages of Halloween Enjoyment
When I was reveling in the excitement of hanging around my house all weekend and watching college/pro/semi-pro/whatever football, I realized that it was the normally coveted Halloween weekend. The weekend where twenty-somethings a few years younger than me (or even my age) are pumped to dress up in random “Jersey Shore”, superhero, or horror flick costumes... Read more »

Peyton Manning & Wedding's Don't Mix Very Well

Peyton Manning & Wedding's Don't Mix Very Well
It’s the truth…I swear! (My apologies to Mr. Manning as I’m sure he’s very delightful in person and great at weddings) But it’s tough to find out the news that he’s out of action for at least 2-3 months now and what that does to my fantasy football team. (I know Arian Foster called out... Read more »

30 Days Before Your Wedding...What Does That Feel Like?

30 Days Before Your Wedding...What Does That Feel Like?
2011 has been an exciting and promising year thus far with turning the big 28, buying that first house, and getting married…that last part is still coming up and might actually be the most important out of all the other life events in a person’s existance. Now back to my original question, “30 days before... Read more »

How Was Your 2011 Lollapalooza?

How Was Your 2011 Lollapalooza?
Mine?  It was basically the equivalent of that hand sign you make that looks like an airplane that is rocking side to side… essentially just “ok”. I bet there are plenty of people that would say it was their knockout, home-run, favorite year in the past six that it’s been solely in Chicago, but aside from a few... Read more »
