Harry carays restaurant chicago
Harry Caray, left, and Al Capone (Associated Press file photos) It’s not likely that a Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster and a top lieutenant for a notorious mobster ever crossed paths in life, but Harry Caray and Al Capone enforcer Frank Nitti have intertwined decades after their deaths. The owner of Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in the River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago says the building that houses the eatery was once owned by Nitti, and there is a mysterious box encased in a bricked-in vault. “I didn’t want a crime scene,” Grant DePorter said to WBBM-AM in Chicago. “I feel comfortable it’s not big enough for that. It does look big enough, you know back then, they worked with $1,000 bills, so it does look like it’s big enough to have some significant money in it, potentially.” DePorter says he will attempt to find out what’s inside the box by using an endoscope and drill before making bigger attempts to remove … [Read more...] about Another Chicago mobster vault mystery?

That, at least, was how director Mike Nichols remembered it. "When we were painting and building it, one day a young girl wandered in - because she lived on the block - and asked what we were doing. 'We're going to have a theater,' we said. 'Do you want to be in it?' She replied, 'OK.'" Harris, Nichols told Life magazine in 1966, "handled the mimeographing machine" for months before working as an actor in the troupe, a group of improvisational performers that evolved into the nationally recognized comedy group Second City.

Susan R. Pollack Special to The Detroit News Published 2:14 p.m. UTC Aug 11, 2018 Chicago — Big things are happening in the Windy City. One of the biggest is Maximo, the skeletal cast of a long-necked titanosaur — the largest dinosaur species ever discovered — installed recently at the Field Museum of Natural History. Stretching 122 feet long and 28 feet tall, the massive sauropod from Patagonia is nearly triple the size of the Field’s longtime star, Sue, the world’s largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. Over on the Chicago River, the sleek new Chicago Architecture Center is another headline-grabber. Celebrating its grand opening Aug. 31, just in time for Labor Day weekend, it showcases “Building Tall,” an eye-popping exhibit of super-sized scale models of nine famous Chicago and international skyscrapers, including a nearly 40-foot tall model of Saudi Arabia’s world record-setting Jeddah Tower, scheduled for … [Read more...] about Chicago boasts a multitude of new attractions
