We're normally partial to cupcakes when it comes to our dessert of choice, but after peeping these pics of Chicago's newest treat, we're seeing macaroons in a whole new light. Danny Macaroons come in flavors like salted caramel and red velvet, which means they're totally worth the extra calories. (Cheeky Chicago)

Here's an important lesson: Don't mess with Lady Gaga and her Little Monsters. A local musician who sued the pop star for ripping off her music to make "Judas" has been on the business end of death threats, straight from Gaga fans. Depositions for said lawsuit start next week, so here's hoping those monsters can lay off a bit. (DNA Info)
With this crazy Chitown winter chill, it can be tricky to find clothes that keep us warm without looking bulky. We normally balk at the idea of a chunky turtleneck, but this local blogger is showing us that the time-tested sweater is anything but dowdy. (See Jane)
We love Lincoln Park and we love a good sale, so we've already got our calendars marked for this awesome warehouse blowout. The L.P. Merchants Association is teaming up to bring major deals, plus bites and cocktails, to Thread Lounge next Wednesday — it goes down from 5 to 10 p.m. (Thread Lounge)
We may consider ourselves seasoned pros when it comes to drinking in the Windy City, but it's always good to get a second opinion, right? Chicago Mag did some digging and came up with its 100 favorite bars...is it just us, or are we getting a little thirsty? (Chicago Magazine)
