Gymnasts Shawn Johnson & Nastia Liukin Poised for Comeback in Chicago

With the Olympic Games in London on the horizon, American gymnasts begin their quest for gold this weekend in Chicago at the Secret Classic. If you watched Shawn Johnson heat up the stage on “Dancing With the Stars,” or caught Nastia Liukin in this week’s US Weekly, this is finally the competition to see them back in action on the gymnastics floor. Who doesn't love a good catfight? The Classics serve as the first qualifier to determine who will represent the United States in London this summer. You can watch the drama unfold in a live webcast at USAGym.org on Saturday, May 26 at 6 p.m.

Link to Surprising Dining   The Gino's East story began in 1966 when two taxi drivers and a friend, frustrated with rush hour traffic, decided to open a pizzeria just off Michigan Ave. and Superior St. in Chicago.

Millenium Park, Chicago, ILThis is one neighborhood where gay boys rule the streets; they make the rules, break the rules, and live unaffected by outside prejudice. It’s an entire enclave dedicated to embracing the church’s Seven Deadly Sins through excessive alcoholic intake at America’s “best gay bar” (Sidetracks), casual sex at the nation’s most visited sauna (Steamworks) or devouring the eye candy at the local Caribou Coffee (known as Cruise-i-bou).
