10 of the Weirdest Laws in Chicago

CHICAGO — "Nephew," my uncle Reggie once said, "I've traveled all around the world, but there's no place like Chicago!" Sure, my uncle won a Super Bowl wearing a Bears' uniform, so it's only natural for him to love the Windy City. Even so, his point is well taken. After all, to know Chicago is to love Chicago. Yet for as much as Uncle Reggie brags about Chicago, he never mentions this:

The woolly bears are out, can they really predict the upcoming winter?

The first fall sighting in the southwest suburbs of the fuzzy and fast-moving caterpillar. woolly bear caterpillar, the larva of the isabella tiger moth(photo by author) I know it's fall in northern Illinois when the trees are filled with colorful leaves, the air is crisp, Halloween decorations are everywhere to be seen, and I have a pumpkin spice latte in my hand. And one other thing, fuzzy black and rusty red-banded caterpillars are racing across my path when I'm out for a walk in the morning.

Trying Lem's Bar-B-Q for the first time

Lem's Bar-B-Q has been on our list of BBQ spots to try for a long time. The Lemons brothers started this neighborhood staple in the 1950s and they have been serving up their famous hot links and rib tips ever since. Rib tips are one of Adam's favorite BBQ offerings and we couldn't wait to try what Lem's was serving up! We will definitely be back for more!! There is no seating at Lem's so keep that in mind when planning your trip! Located at 311 E 75th St, Chicago, IL 60619

Eating delicious Peruvian food at SanguCHE in Naperville

SanguChe is a chef-owned Peruvian restaurant in Naperville and they are serving up some delicious dishes. We recently visited for the first time and cannot say enough great things about this spot. The milanesa sandwich was thin and crispy and served with an incredible parsley mayo. The plato del jefe is a must-order dish that we will be dreaming about for weeks to come. If you are in the Naperville area you should stop into SanguChe, and if you arent in Naperville you should make a special trip just for this meal!

Chicago Mayor Charges Police Union after Opposition of Vaccination Mandate

A Chicago police union that is opposed to the city's vaccination requirement has been charged by Mayor Lori Lightfoot with attempting to instigate an uprising. "What we've seen from the Fraternal Order of Police, in particular leadership, is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half-truths, and, frankly, flat out lies in order to induce an insurrection. And we're not having that," Lightfoot told reporters. "And so we want to make it very, very clear that the law is on our side. We feel very confident about it."

Grabbing beers at the Goose Island Fulton Street Brewery

Goose Island is one of the most popular breweries in Chicago and we wanted to stop into their Fulton Street Brewery to enjoy a few tasty brews. They have a great outdoor patio and brewery exclusives for the taproom. We had a great day out on their patio and loved checking out this spot for the first time. This area is home to several other breweries including Great Central and Finch Beer Company. This is a great spot to meet up with friends for a few beers!

Chicago Mayor accuses city police force of trying to “induce an insurrection.”

The term has become popular among Democrats who like to call all major disagreements "insurrections" now. We've seen it from Nancy Pelosi, and we see it in Chicago. At a Monday press conference, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) said the city’s police union is trying to “induce an insurrection” over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The complete statement reads, "The police unions are not authorized to strike and have made efforts to “induce an insurrection.”

The richest person in Chicago

Recently Forbes released a list of the 400 wealthiest people in the United States. While some familiar names are at the top of the list, I like to look for interesting stories that stand out amongst the lucky 400 people so I can share them with readers.

This Oakbrook, IL Resturant has a major issue going on.

One of my favorite restaurants in Oak Brook is Labriola and has a major problem on its hands. What is going on -Photo by Frank S/ChicagoFoodKing. I have written numerous reviews stating how much I love the food here and how I think their hamburger “The Richie Burger 2.0” is the best in Illinois. However, there is a problem that I have noticed for the last couple of weeks that I have been going here. The air conditioning has not been working. I can tell you that I looked at the temperature inside and it was well over 87 degrees. The beverages that were in the open cooler were all sweating.
