HEADLINE: First Band Announced for ChicagoROX

OK, I am so excited about this I have to sit on my hands to keep from clapping. Which makes it really hard to type. So you know I must be excited.

And the crowd goes wild!!!

Why? Because there are about a gazillion bands in Chicago, and slightly fewer places to hear them.

So how do you narrow it down?

August 7 is The Local Tourist Day at Lavazza! Click here for coupon.

It's a perfect Friday evening. There's a light breeze off the lake. It's not even strong enough to tussle my hair into my face. From the rooftop of my building the city is quiet and peaceful.

If you're the type of person who'd rather see the sites on your own instead of tagging along with a group, you're in luck. Last week I mentioned that the Chicago Loop Alliance has created audio tours of downtown Chicago.

When a member of a band has a heart attack three weeks before a show, you're not quite sure what to expect.

Well, that's not quite true. You expect that there will be no show.

Unless it's Juzt Nutz. And this band is appropriately named. They're freakin' insane.

So I went to the candy expo last week which isn't open to the public but as a member of the press I was able to attend so I could tell you about all the cool new candy and gum and mints that are coming out and how the old standbys are holding up for example they had Sixlets and I didn't even know

You can't help but love a diner. Especially when that diner gives you Milk Duds while you're waiting and a basket of donut holes makes its way around the restaurant.

Last week I went to the Chicago launch party for a great new concept in wine clubs.

Navy Pier Ferris Wheel

Today is Ferris Wheel Day! George Ferris was the inventor of the first ferris wheel for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
