  • On the road: One-time-only art walk in Logan Square Oct 18, 2014 6:30 AM
    Take a Sunday stroll with soul as you visit neighborhood artists’ studios and galleries on a walking tour of Logan Square. If you think coffee shops are out of their gourds with pumpkin drinks, get a load of the 2014 Sycamore Pumpkin Festival.

     
  • Go for the food: Grape stomps for fun, not wine Oct 17, 2014 6:00 AM
    There is one thing that the people at Willamette Valley Vineyards want you to know about their annual grape stomp. It is a very important point, one they make several times. “We do not use the grapes that people stomp in our wines,” said Wende Bennette. “Please tell everyone that.”

     
  • Exhibition probes the mystery of Sherlock Holmes Oct 17, 2014 1:13 PM
    Sherlock Holmes is among the most famous Londoners of all time. It seems logical that the fictional detective's creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, must have known the city intimately. In fact, historian David Cannadine said, “Conan Doyle himself didn't spend that much time in London." That is just one of the surprises provided by a myth-busting new Museum of London exhibition that explores a character who has been endlessly adapted while retaining his essence.

     
  • Dogs welcome at St. Louis museum about, well, dogs Oct 17, 2014 7:00 AM
    Exhibits include dog paintings, dog sculptures and displays about famous dogs. But what really makes this St. Louis museum unique is the visitors: Dogs are welcome, and curators aren’t worried about the canines knocking things over or making a mess. “We do it ... and to my knowledge it’s never caused a problem,” said Stephen George, executive director of the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog.

     
  • New York scare house evokes city’s ‘bad old days’ Oct 17, 2014 5:45 AM
    New York City’s bad old days are here again — in a Halloween haunted house, that is. “Nightmare: New York,” staged in a Lower East Side building, depicts the ugliest, scariest vision of 1970s — and ’80s-era Gotham. Subways are awash in graffiti, creeps and crime. Menacing punks roam the streets. And the “characters” of Times Square do not look anything like Elmo or SpongeBob SquarePants.

     
  • Mexico denies dock to ship with quarantined passenger Oct 17, 2014 2:56 PM
    A cruise ship with a Dallas health care worker aboard who is being monitored for signs of Ebola did not receive clearance to dock in Cozumel, Mexico, a day after Belize refused to let the passenger leave the vessel. Obama administration officials said the passenger handled a lab specimen from a Liberian man who died from Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital earlier this month.

     
  • Plane isolated at Madrid airport for Ebola check Oct 16, 2014 9:20 AM
    An Air France plane was isolated at Madrid’s airport on Thursday because of a suspected Ebola case after a passenger was reported to have a fever and shivers, officials said. The passenger, who had traveled from Lagos, Nigeria, was taken by ambulance to an unspecified hospital in Madrid but the rest of the passengers were allowed to leave the plane as normal, Air France said in a statement.

     
  • On a wing and a paintbrush at Milwaukee Art Museum Oct 16, 2014 5:45 AM
    That black speck walking precariously out on the Milwaukee Art Museum’s giant white wings? That’s a painter. Matt Radmacher, owner of Wisconsin Industrial Painters, and two other painters are touching up 40 rust spots on the museum’s Burke Brise Soleil — affectionately called wings — and repainting 72 rusted plates at the base. The painters started Sept. 29 and are expected to finish by the end of this week.

     
  • Paris Catacombs open at night ahead of Halloween Oct 16, 2014 6:00 AM
    As if visiting the Paris Catacombs in the daytime wasn’t creepy enough — you can now visit the underground maze of skeletons after nightfall, too. That is if you dare defy the warning at the entrance: “Stop, this is the empire of Death.” The subterranean tunnels, stretching 1.2 miles, cradle the bones of some 6 million Parisians from centuries past and once gave refuge to smugglers.

Morita said O'Hare will implement procedures Thursday to screen all arriving passengers originating from West Africa for fever.

     
  • Nashville’s folk rock era is topic of new exhibit Oct 15, 2014 6:00 AM
    While country music has long been synonymous with Nashville, rock and folk musicians in the late ’60s and early ’70s made the Southern city the new hip spot to record. The city’s talented session musicians helped create some of the seminal country-influenced rock albums of the period, including Bob Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde” and “Nashville Skyline.” Nashville’s rock period is the subject of the next exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, called “Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City,” which opens in March 2015.

     
  • Shangri La living suite of tobacco heiress opened Oct 14, 2014 5:45 AM
    American tobacco heiress Doris Duke fell in love with Islamic art and culture during her honeymoon through the Middle East and Asia in 1935. So much so that she commissioned a bedroom and bathroom inspired by the Taj Mahal, the mausoleum in India built by a 17th century emperor for his favorite wife. The marble- and mirror-lined private living quarters will be opened to the public for the first time this weekend in Hawaii after years of extensive repairs and restoration.

     
  • On the road: ‘Ghosts and Demons’ haunt the Art Institute Oct 11, 2014 6:15 AM
    Get into the Halloween season minus cheesy haunted houses and dreadful candy corn at the Art Institute of Chicago’s exhibition “Ghosts and Demons in Japanese Prints,” drawn from the museum’s own celebrated collection. Also, sample hundreds of wines from around the world at Wine Riot Oct. 17-18 in the Great Hall at Chicago's Union Station.

     
  • Go for the food: Cattlemen’s in Oklahoma City Oct 10, 2014 5:45 AM
    I came from the land of kale and quinoa to dine in the land of meat and potatoes. As a New Yorker on a road trip through Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri, I was told by any number of locals that I had to eat at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in Oklahoma City. I’m always wary of old-time classic restaurants — Cattlemen’s opened in 1910 — but in this case, the legend lived up to its reputation. The food was superb, the service friendly and the atmosphere lots of fun.

     
  • Artist puts real moms in Crystal Bridges Museum Oct 10, 2014 6:00 AM
    The first thing you encounter at a new contemporary art show at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is the “Mom Booth,” where a woman in an apron sits at a table. Behind her, shelves are stocked with Band-Aids, puddings, animal crackers, soup cans, paper lunch bags and clean underwear. She’s not a docent or guide. She’s a real mom who gives advice, hugs and maybe a scolding. She might ask you to fold laundry or pick Legos off the floor. The Mom Booth, created by Andy Ducett and staffed by local volunteers, has earned its spot at “State of the Art,” the contemporary art show that opened Sept. 13 at Crystal Bridges.

  • Go for the food: Dim sum in the Land of Barbecue Oct 9, 2014 5:45 AM
    Yes, even in the Land of Barbecue in Kansas City, there are other artery-challenging options beyond the slab. The weekend crowds at Bo Lings Chinese restaurant have long suggested that plenty of people in the area often prefer their pork steamed amid shrimp in a dumpling, diced in rice noodles or laced with barbecue sauce and stuffed into a fluffy, white steamed bun. While the revamped menu at Bo Lings includes sushi, it’s the dim sum that draws in the crowds.

     
  • O’Hare among airports monitoring travelers for Ebola Oct 8, 2014 2:07 PM

  • Discovering ghost towns of the Southwest Oct 8, 2014 5:45 AM
    The Amargosa Hotel in Death Valley Junction, California, was once a hub of activity, the Spanish Colonial-style buildings filled with workers from the Pacific Coast Borax company. Once the mine shut down, the people left, leaving the U-shaped hotel and the opera house attached to it at the center of what is now considered a ghost town. Many ghost towns are still fairly well-preserved and offer visitors a chance to see a piece of history — even if it is in pieces.
