A Sandwich a Day: Chicken Breast Sandwich with Bacon from Epic Burger
As far as recently opened Chicago burger chains go, Epic Burger is my favorite. Their relatively thin-pattied burgers are balanced and flavorful, and their fries are pretty good, too. But although the menu seems to operate on a KISS philosophy, there are options for the non-ground beef inclined as well. The Chicken Breast Sandwich ($5.99) comes on the same oatmeal-flecked bun as the burgers, and as long as you ask, will be topped with lettuce, tomato, pickle, Epic Sauce, and grilled or raw onions. As far as chicken breasts go, this one is relatively tender, with plenty of crunch-producing char to make up for the cut's inherent dryness. The real draw, though, are the toppings. Fresh and crisp, these vegetables would brighten any sandwich they were party to. A few slices of rich and crispy Bacon ($0.99) didn't hurt things, either.

In front of my building
The Chicago teacher's walkout is the first in 25 years. Key issues separating the Chicago Pubic Schools and the Chicago Teacher's Union this time are: salaries and benefits, job security and teacher evaluations.

Commentator Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack Monday during a live broadcast of WWE's "Monday Night Raw" in Montreal.
The 62-year-old Lawler, nicknamed "The King," was stricken as he and announcing partner Michael Cole were providing commentary during a tag-team match featuring Kane and Daniel Bryan versus The Prime Time Players.
Midway through the match, the commentary suddenly stopped and snoring sounds could be heard. In the background of one TV shot, Lawler could be briefly glimpsed slumping over in his chair as several people in the stands turn their attention to the announcers' table.
