This week's cover stories | NATO protest, Lichtenstein at the Art Institute, Mindy Segal, queer nights at straight bars
Here's a peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands Thursday:
- Planning a protest, like the one against NATO on May 20, takes more than just passion. Activist Andy Thayer speaks to his struggles to get the rally off the ground, including filing mounds of paperwork, fighting the city and tracking down porta-potty suppliers.
- As a new exibition at the Art Institute proves, Roy Lichtensteins's work goes beyond his iconic comic-inspired benday-dot paintings.
- Renowned pastry chef Mindy Segal is reconcepting her restaurant, HotChocolate. It took a near mental breakdown to arrive at that decision.
- Recent violence at a straight bar hosting a queer night prompts the question: Are there any safe spaces for queers?
