Time-Out Chicago dutifully posts updates, reviews, and photos of the Pitchfork Music Festival.

internetThe PBLT (a cross between a peanut butter sandwich and a BLT) at Lula Cafe is a bit more than you'd bargain for, according to Drive-Thru.

Yesterday, today, and- You know the word I'm looking for, but do you know how to spell it? Don't ask the employees at the Jade Dragon Tattoo parlor, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

How's this for something different? A blog wrap-up linking to another blog wrap-up. The Chicago Tribune explores some of Chicago's Best Blogs. This week, check out some 'Around Chicago' blogs and their blogger of the week, the CTA Tattler.

According to The Counter, a build-your-own-burger place opening here in September, the restaurant offers more than '312,120 different burger combinations.' The MenuPages Blog examines if this calculation is really true.

Mike Doyle at Chicago Carless offers his own take on the CTA's introduction of seatless eL cars.

Sure, we've all seen the movie, but are you familiar with the book? The GB Book Club will be discussing L.Frank Baum's classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The Go Chicago Travel Blog offers a downloadable map of Chicago that includes a variety of attractions.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, the south suburb of Lynwood now has fashion police. No, seriously.

Finally, attend a film festival like none other, recommended by the Chicagoist.
