A son's annual check-up gets his mother wondering what happens between raising the first child and the last.
The other day, my son kicked me out of his doctor’s appointment.

Sometimes you get a craving for one type of food, and it almost doesn't matter where you get it. The Feed takes a look at local restaurants that all serve a single food in common with one another.

The North Shore establishment had its official ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday night.
J.P. McCarthy's Pizza & Grill was officially welcomed to the area with a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday night hosted by the Wilmette Chamber of Commerce. The North Shore establishment had served the Winnetka community for 15 years before relocating to 4th Avenue and Linden Street in November. It was one of two new pizza places to open in Wilmette last year. Village officials, including president Chris Canning, and the Chamber's Executive Director Nada Becker were in attendance to sample J.P.'s well-known thin crust pizza and chicken wings. Chef-Owner Val Bondar and his wife, Lena, cooked and served dozens of residents, as well as other local businessowners.
