To celebrate our first birthday, we’re releasing the city’s favorite bike, the one-and-only #DIVVYRED, back into the Chicago wild!
The regular Divvy bikes match the blue of the Chicago flag, but #DIVVYRED is painted Chicago red to match the stars in the flag. Riding it gives you magical powers (sort of) and posting a photo of it can get you terrific prizes.

Chef Christopher Tong of My Private Chef, one of Chicagoland’s most accomplished chefs and a favorite at Taste of Chicago will appear again this year at the Cooking Demo Pavilion.
Chef Tong’s cooking demonstration at the Taste of Chicago is one of My Private Chef’s most popular annual appearances. People who are casual cooks or lovers of gourmet food get to ask questions, discuss preparation, and come away with a book filled with recipes from every chef who participates at the Taste of Chicago. It is a very well attended feature of this annual Chicago summertime fest!
My Private Chef’s demonstration is scheduled for Sunday, July 13 at 4:30 p.m.,
at the Cooking Demo Pavilion tent on the northwest corner of Buckingham Fountain Plaza.
Chef Tong will demonstrate how to prepare a refreshing summertime dish:
Alaskan King Crab Diavolo, Tri-color Fettuccini, Zucchini, Shiitake Mushrooms and Cherry Tomatoes.
Taste of Chicago runs daily July 9-13, 2014. Taste of Chicago is the nation’s premier outdoor food festival showcasing the diversity of Chicago’s dining community. The delicious array of food served at Taste of Chicago is complemented by music and exciting activities for the entire family. Every summer since 1980, Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park on the city’s magnificent lakefront has been home to the world’s largest food festival.

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS CHICAGOLAND? The Biggest Tallest Fastest!
The ride will set three world records for wooden roller coasters including drop length, drop steepness, and speed. It will feature the longest drop at 180 feet (55 m), the steepest drop at 85°, and the fastest speed at 72 miles per hour (116 km/h).
We got a test spin today and IT IS SUPER FAST – and that first drop? OMG!
Reaching top speeds of 72 miles per hour—the fastest of any wooden roller coaster—you’ll then thunder around surprising curves and outrageous twists. You’ll face three intense over-banked turns, a 180-degree zero G-roll twist, and two wild inversions, flipping head-over-heels through a winding inverted drop and a spiraling inverted zero G stall.
GET A GLIMPSE HERE!

These photos do not do the show justice! It’s brilliant and funny!
Michael Urie is amazing and fresh and a wonderful story teller! Urie plays all of the characters, starting with a fictional out-of-work actor named Alex More who is hired to staff the underground mall of quaint shops that Streisand has built (really — this part’s true) beneath a barn on her Malibu estate.
And it is so refreshing, and so needed, for Broadway in Chicago to bring us an intimate show like this. THIS is what New York theatre is all about. Wonderful small shows in a small venue, where everyone can enjoy the actors talents and be pulled into the story!
Whether you like Barbra Streisand or not – this is a must-see entertaining show in Chicago, fresh from New York, and on it’s way to Los Angeles next. GO SEE IT!
