You spin me right round baby, right round, like a record baby

Looking for good record stores in chicago: my buddy is coming this weekend for Lollapalooza, and to make up for the fact that we didn't get tickets for all three days, I want to take him around to some record stores. I know about Reckless and Dusty Groove in Wicker Park, but what else is out there? I'm in Andersonville, and we'll be in Logan Square tomorrow for Kuma's, so anywhere in between is highly welcome.

Chicago group activities for the un-athletic male?

I'm looking for suggestions for new activities and/or hobbies (particularly team-based ones) in and around the Chicago area. While there are similar questions out there, one unique element of this question is my personal guidelines (of varying degrees of importance) that has forced me to rule out some of the more common selections like "Play tennis!" or what have you. This is not to say I won't give something a try, but that I may be better suited to one activity over another. [more inside]

What Chicago neighborhood should we move to?

ChicagoFilter: We're looking to move out of our miserable Hyde Park apartment. Hooray! We don't know anything about the rest of Chicago. What neighborhoods should we be looking at when one of us will be commuting via public transit to Northeastern Illinois University (in North Park) and one half will be commuting (with a car) to Hyde Park? Budget-friendly ideas welcome--we're just looking for anything with more grocery stores and a shorter commute time to NEIU than Hyde Park.

Where do I get my Italian beef and other Chicago classics for 10 people coming to my house for the weekend?

What are some good Chicago-area catering options for a group of 10 people? We are hosting a small group of relatives at our house for the weekend in May, and we want to have some classic Chicago dishes for people to eat. But, we also don't want to spend the whole weekend in the kitchen working on deep dish pizza, either. So, we're looking for suggestions on places to check out that we can bring food home for about 10 people. So far, we're going to check out Portillo's and Jewel for Italian beef, but I'm open to other options for the beef and other Chicago specialties. (Actually, we live in Naperville, but I'm willing to go pretty much anywhere in the area if it is worth it.)

Chicago Restaurants for Locavores Updates?

A 2009 question by the same title (http://ask.metafilter.com/141735/Chicago-Restaurants-for-Cheap-Locavores) with loads of good advice, but 2 years in the restaurant world can be a long time and it is not so critical to be in that 30-40$ range (though 195 before tax and tip is a stretch). Will be there for three nights in May. Any places that speak to the intersection of community and food would be of interest as well as those with wow factor for food (ambiance not so important) will be at hyatt regency
