The after-lunch crowd from Kinzie Chophouse returning to work at the Merchandise Mart. The skinny suit is in, a refreshing look for men.
The hat shop is closed.

Having scored a thrilling sudden-death victory over the LA Kings in double-overtime, the Blackhawks are advancing to the final round of the Stanley Cup, where they’ll be facing the Boston Bruins. I’m strictly a post-season fan, who’s enjoyed seeing the Hawks’ amazing struggles against the Red Wings and Kings.
What I love is how superstitious the players are. The Hawks players have stopped shaving, and, when presented with a trophy for winning the Western Division championship, clustered about it warily, being careful not to touch it and thus jinx their chance at touching the Stanley Cup.
Will we be seeing more playoff beards around town, as Hawks fans stop shaving in support of their team?
