Kate Stahl | August 17, 2011 12:00 amWho couldn't use a pair of healing hands? And when those hands belong to Nourhy Chiriboga, owner of Now Studio and a licensed massage therapist who's also certified in reflexology, craniosacral therapies, and so much more, you're in for an unforgettable experience. While Now Studio offers a huge range of holistic treatments, three signature treatments – reflexology (an intensive foot massage that dissolves blocked energy, improves circulation, and encourages balance), craniosacral therapy (a gentle, hands-on method of correcting imbalances that surround the brain and spinal cord to alleviate stress), and chakra cleansing (an energy balancing treatment that promotes calmness and grounding) — are now available at a discount with this exclusive PopSugar offer.Read More
Kate Stahl | August 5, 2011 8:30 amIt's Sunday and your Lolla love is slowly fading, but that doesn't mean you should hibernate. Two yummy pop-up shops from two of my favorite Chicago sweet-makers — Truffle Truffle and Salted Caramel — are more than enough reason to get moving.
Salted Caramel hosts its second Pop-Up Pop Shoppe at Espresso Thy Art (4019 N.Read More

Kate Stahl | July 27, 2011 8:25 amLogan Square just feels like a good spot to drink beer (in a similar way that the Gold Coast feels very dirty-martini), and neighborhood bar owners obviously agree. Bring on the brews!
There's a ton going on this week at Revolution Brewing Company (2323 N.Read More
Kate Stahl | July 22, 2011 8:45 amEvent space Logan Square Kitchen (2333 N. Milwaukee Ave., 773-342-2333) inspired foodie mania last year with its first pop-up restaurant, Glimpse, and next weekend, they're sure to do it again with Gypsy, a one-weekend only eatery serving globally inspired street food from July 29-31.
While Glimpse was a sit-down experience that only the quick-to-reserve were able to experience, Gypsy is grab-and-go — all the better to enjoy the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival's live music and galleries.Read More

Kate Stahl | March 11, 2011 8:02 amOne of my favorite brunch spots, Logan Square hot spot Lula Cafe still manages to feel like a hidden gem — even when you're waiting an hour for a table. Luckily for Lula's devoted fans, that wait time will (hopefully) be going down soon, when owner Jason Hammel expands the 11-year-old space this Spring. A partnership with Kevin Heisner (who also co-owns Nightwood with Hammel), the new Lula Cafe is taking over a neighboring storefront to create a pastry gallery for new pastry chef Kate Neumann, who formerly worked at award-winning restaurants Blackbird and Hot Chocolate.Read More
