Chicago Craft Beer Week, July 8-11

Chicago Craft Beer Week, July 8-11

I've finally managed the time to fix a little bug I had only recently noticed on this page.

I hope you've noticed that if you click the little globe emoji at the end of the address line of each listing, it takes you to a Google Map of that location. That's part of some fancy PHP coding that I learning in three night classes at IIT and a lot of online courses.

But, I only just discovered that if the establishment has an ampersand in its name, that's an endpoint for the Google Maps address. So clicking on the icon for, say, Iron&Glass in Bolingbrook would give you a map for every place in your area with "Iron" in its name.

So I've gotten around to a small edit that drops the "&" from the establishment's name in the Google Map search. If this breaks anything else, I hope to hear about it sooner than later.

For my next trick, I'd like to replace the "globe" with a more obvious "map" emoji. But the "map" came as a later Unicode version that might not show on all browsers yet. In fact, just trying to display emoticons in this part of article wipes out all of the text that follows. The ones in my listing are safely ensconced inside of <iframe> tags.
