So an improv wannabe walks into a bar....

Improv Comedy Filter: I just moved to Chicago and everyone tells me "To meet people like you, you gotta join an improv troup!" The problem is: there's like 30 of them, and they're all different. So Chicago (or improv) fans: What's the deal with these improv classes, which do you recommend, and what's the best way for a newbie to the city to get situated in the scene?

I'm from Chicagoland.

UA vs. AA: Which FF Plan is Better?

In the next couple of months I am going to start flying frequently (probably weekly) between Chicago and New York and Chicago and DC. I am currently a member of US Airways Dividend Miles, but they don't have enough flexibility in flight schedules for me. I am trying to decide whether to sign with United or American (I'd like to stick to one airline whenever possible to get status, and I'll likely pick up their credit card as well). So, I'd love to hear feedback on the two programs: which treat their customers better, which have more perks (more upgrade availability), etc. Thanks in advance!

My car got towed in Chicago

I live in chicago and got my car towed last night (on Division bet. western and california). The reason is because there is no parking on the street when snow is two inches or more (from 3am to 7am). It has not snowed since wednesday and there was no snow in the street when I parked there, nor did it snow during the evening. I paid the fee to get my car out and I have scheduled a hearing for 2/23/07. Has anyone successfully gotten their money back? Am I in the wrong? I would appreciate any advice I can get going into this hearing.
