Show: Fiery FurnacesI’m Going Away might be my favorite Fiery Furnaces album yet,” writes Miles Raymer. “The Friedberger sibs have located the perfect balance point between their passion for noodly complication and their love for smooth-edged AOR pop, creating a strange synergy from a combination that might seem antithetical on its surface.”

Dinner: Yoshi’s Cafe “Long before the name Yoshi was inextricably linked in the public mind with Nintendo, Yoshi’s restaurant was ground zero during Chicago’s early forays into fusion cuisine, merging culinary traditions from all over the planet,” writes David Hammond. “Now expanded and reportedly more ‘casual,’ it remains a friendly place that gets points for superb ingredients, imaginative presentation, and attentive, unobtrusive service.”
