What makes a sculpture a sculpture? South Side cultural gem the Smart Museum of Art will host Carved, Cast, Crumpled, an exhibit that explores just that question. Go to see Chinese tomb figures, European bronzes and cool modern pieces like this. | September 27 through December 21, 2014
The ACME Hotel Company experience just got even more awesome, because today is the opening of the The Berkshire Room. Named after the hotel that stood in this very spot decades ago, The Berkshire Room is a cool mash-up of the old world cocktail lounge vibe, with contemporary urban touches. Awesome right? Time Out Chicago agrees - check it out!
Every once in a while a restaurant comes along that smacks you in the head. Elizabeth, a new Lincoln Square spot, from urban forager and former One Sister underground restaurateur Iliana Regan, is one of those restaurants. Elizabeth Restaurant, Chicago Elizabeth-restaurant.com
Carriage House. Some things were out of this world (the mushroom, truffle, and egg grits); others seemed to lack flavor (lowcountry boil). Overall not an okay experience that I don't feel compelled to go try again - except perhaps for brunch.
