Where are the best hot dogs in the country? If you ask writers at the international food site, The Daily Meal, they’ll tell you they’re at a place called Rut’s Hut in Clifton, NJ. Before completely writing them off, consider that Chicago gets a fair share of shoutouts in The Daily Meal’s compilation of the best 75 hot dogs in the United States. First, they totally acknowledge the correct way to dress a dog: all-beef dogs frankfurters with mustard, never ketchup. Then, they give the city props, basically admitting that some of the best hot dogs in the USA – from Seattle to Honolulu, Nevada and beyond – ripped their style straight from the one-and-only Chi-Town. And with nine of the city’s hot dog spots ranked in the nation’s top 50, the Chicago area practically dominates this list (below) – one we didn’t really need in the first place. But for National Hot Dog Day, we’ll entertain them. #3 Superdawg Superdawg has … [Read more...] about Chicago doesn’t have the USA’s No. 1 hot dog: report. What do they know?

Not everybody rescues a dog on an elevator. Gabrielle Weisberg did. She took in a puppy after talking with a stranger on an elevator — a terminally ill woman with a dog named Riley, a Maltipoo, she was about to take to a shelter because of her illness. The woman was worried about who would love Riley after she was gone. “Mom took her that day,” said Mrs. Weisberg’s daughter Danielle. With the sort of empathy that drew people out, Mrs. Weisberg had skills that made her a top Baird & Warner real estate broker, selling multimillion-dollar listings on Chicago’s Gold Coast.

The smile as Katarina Johnson-Thompson stood on top of the podium was broad, but it was her lack of tears and composed demeanour that were perhaps most telling. There is no need to get carried away just yet, she appeared to be saying. This world indoor pentathlon title was an important achievement for someone who has promised so much and failed to deliver over the past few years. It was not only a perfect exhibition of consistency across all five events, but also proof that she can suppress her mental demons when required to perform on the big stage. Most importantly, she hopes it will be t he start of something big. Although Johnson-Thompson beat a strong field to gold, there were some notable absentees from these World Indoor Championships, most significantly Nafi Thiam, the world and Olympic heptathlon champion who has held an iron grip on the global multi-event scene in recent years. There was also no Carolin Shafer or Anouk Vetter, the two athletes who filled the … [Read more...] about Katarina Johnson-Thompson: Indoor gold gives me confidence to take on the world’s best
