Daddy-daughter holiday travel is a treasured gift

Published Jan. 4, 2014

Every once in a while I fear our younger child gets a raw deal. Our eldest had our undivided attention for a few years. And I mean undivided.

Hoping to give her some of the focus that her brother got, I booked us a daddy-daughter weekend in Chicago.

Up on the roof: Chicago nightlife soars to new heights

Published Aug. 30, 2013

When The Drifters took America up on the roof - via Carole King and Gerry Goffin's eponymous tune - they might have been talking about New York circa 1962. But they could have also been predicting Chicago in 2013.

Published July 18, 2013
