Kevin Boehm’s Guide to Chicago

The man behind celebrated haunts like chef Stephanie Izard’s Girl & the Goat launches his 18th restaurant, The Bellemore, this season. Here are his favorite spots in Chi-Town.

Power Lunch: Sumi Robata Bar serves superauthentic, robatayaki in a small, discreet setting. Chef Gene Kato’s food is always beautiful and served with laser precision.

Date Night: My favorite restaurant in the world, Alinea, accomplishes the rare feat of providing theatrics, hospitality and some of the best-tasting food on the planet.

Retail Therapy: My house is pretty modern, so I like to balance that with items that are weird and vintage. I can find both at Architectural Artifacts, where it’s easy to kill hours.

Field Trip: Steppenwolf Theatre’s ensemble cast has an embarrassment of riches, and some of its premieres, like August Osage County, have gone on to worldwide fame.

‘Flatliners’ Remake Trailer Has Kevin Bacon Hair and Creepy Scares

The original 1990 Flatliners was a childhood favorite. You’ve got Keifer Sutherland and girlfriend Julia Roberts, along with Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and William Baldwin. Add in cheating death and ominous Others traveling into our waking world and I was hooked.

I was never upset upon hearing a remake was in the works. I was just saddened that there could be no replicating Kevin Bacon’s glorious hair from the original. Happily, I was wrong about that particular nitpick, as Diego Luna has brought his floppy hair game into the mix.

Flatliners also stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens and will hit theaters September 29th.

22 NSFWBDs React To R. Kelly, Usher & Kevin Hart News

Black Twitter is the most magical place on the internet so naturally, when this R. Kelly, Kevin Hart and Usher news broke over these last couple of days, you knew we were going to get some gold content from the BDs.

So let me catch you up on what’s happened over the last 48 hours or so. First, a giant story broke on R. Kelly allegedly holding six women captive in some weird ass sex cult, which makes a ton of sense if you know R. Kelly’s history. Then Radar Online reported yesterday that Usher settled a lawsuit out of court with an ex-girlfriend for $ 1.1 million that he apparently gave herpes to. And then you have Kevin Hart, who got caught on video allegedly cheating on his pregnant wife with a white woman. His current pregnant wife is the woman he cheated on his first wife (and mother of his 2 kids) with.

All of that has happened since Monday, so let’s enjoy the BD’s hilariously losing their shit over all this nonsense.

More details on these situations

Kevin Hart’s Back Seat Bust

Helium huffer Kevin Hart might have been busted busting a nut with a lady not his wife in the back seat of a car. Radar Online captured and posted some super creepy Nightcrawler inspired video footage of Kevin and an unidentified lady chatting and, depending on how hard you squint, possibly canoodling in the back seat of a Lexus sedan at 5:00 a.m., which was parked in front of a “luxury Miami Beach Hotel.” According to Radar, the encounter lasted 20 minutes, which sounds about right.

Kevin, whose wife Eniko Parrish, is pregnant with the couple’s first child (Kevin has two children from a previous relationship) responded with humor by posting a meme of himself laughing off the allegations.

A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on

Kevin, your meme is bad and you should feel bad.

This is not the first time Lil’ Kev has been accused of hiding his rubber chicken in the wrong glove compartment. E! News reports:

Kevin’s ex-wife Torrei Hart accused Eniko of breaking up their eight-year marriage. But when she blamed Hart’s alleged infidelity on their divorce during an emotional interview with ET, the Ride Along star refuted Torrei’s claims and stood by his then-girlfriend’s side.

That Radar video doesn’t really prove infidelity in the “caught red-handed Chris Hanson ‘gotcha!‘” sense, but it does raise one’s eyebrows. Are they playing patty cake? Having a staring contest? Is he kindly removing an eyelash from her eye? Does she actually have a little Kevin Hart ventriloquist dummy on her lap and Kevin’s not really there at all? There are a lot of perfectly reasonable explanations for being in the back seat of a car at 5:00 a.m. with a woman who is not your pregnant wife. I just can’t think of any at the moment.

Morning Briefing: Remember When GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy Joked That Putin Pays Trump? Yeah, That Wasn’t a Joke

Here’s what we know this morning: Donald Trump had a second undisclosed meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit. It lasted for an hour. No one else was present except Putin’s translator. That may be all we ever know about the meeting, although as Joe Scarborough notes, we can «assume the worst» given all the other evidence suggesting collusion. Even putting that aside, there’s a chance that Putin was able to gain even more kompromat from the meeting; he and his translator can spin that meeting anyway they’d like, and Trump can’t say shit because no one else witnessed it. Basically, Trump got played again.

We also know this: There was an eighth person in that June 19th meeting last year. He’s a Russian, Irakly Kaveladze. He immigrated into the United States in 1991, and according to federal authorities, he immediately began laundering money for the Russians, allegedly moving $ 1.4 billion in a 10 year period.

We are also learning that Yuri Chaika, the master of Russian kompramat, may have been behind the meeting.

Here’s where it gets much, much more interesting. Today, the Daily Beast is reporting that some of the same people who were involved in that June 9th meeting with Don Jr. were also involved in an effort to «stage a show trial of anti-Putin campaigner Bill Browder on Capitol Hill» using California Republican Representative Dana Rohrabacher as an asset.

Rohrabacher was going to show a pro-Kremlin film that attacked Browder during a House subcommittee hearing. The film was obtained by a corrupt associate of Putin’s. Rorhabacher had obtained briefings about the film from Natalie Veselnitskaya — the Russian lawyer at Don Jr.’s meeting, who also handled distribution of the film. Rinat Akhmetshin — the former Soviet spy at the June 9th meeting — helped to put together the subcommittee event. Some other Republican representatives intervened and stopped the subcommittee hearing.

However, a full committee hearing was set up — with one of Rorhabacher’s Russian-friendly witnesses — to talk about relations with Russia. That meeting was arranged as a sort of compromise to keep Rorhabacher from showing the film and embarrassing Republicans. Subsequently, Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya had dinner with Rorhabacher at a private members’ club for Republicans.

This all happened, by the way, in mid June 2016, right after the meeting with Don Jr. Here’s the kicker. The day after Rorhabacher had the dinner with Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya, Republican Representative Kevin McCarthy told his GOP colleagues, «There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump.» After his colleagues laughed, McCarthy said, «Swear to God.» Paul Ryan then said that that information had to stay between them.

Of course, when news of that came out earlier this year, McCarthy and Ryan dismissed it as a joke, but given what we know now — that Rorhabacher met with Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya, who also met with Don Jr. to dish dirt on Hillary, dirt that may have been obtained by Yuri Chaika — it’s much harder to dismiss it as such.

Rohrabacher, by the way, had been warned a few years prior that Russian operatives were trying to recruit him as an asset. It sounds like it might have worked.



There’s a lot more details to this and other connections over on The Daily Beast.

Shocker: Kevin Durant Was In On Peyton Manning’s ESPYs Joke

Unlike 99 percent of Twitter, my initial reaction to Peyton Manning torching Kevin Durant with a Final Five joke was, “Dude’s just acting out there, right?” I texted BC Joe and he seemed to agree, but you know we still had to take advantage of the moment and give you guys some NSFWBD reactions:

If you’re a Cavs/Thunder fan who wants to believe KD was really that butthurt last night, ESPN’s Chris Haynes has some bad news for you: he was just playing along.

It’s pretty obvious but it’s much easier to live life assuming KD is b—hmade, so here’s the joke again:

Kevin Durant Isn’t Stressing About the Harden-CP3 Rockets

The last time we checked in on Kevin Durant’s Twitter activity he was engaging a troll on the very important subject of whether he enjoys chicks farting in his face (spoiler: he does not).

We’re glad to report NBA champion KD has maintained activity since #Fartgate, and even chimed in on today’s blockbuster Clippers-Rockets trade.

As you can see below, an anti-Warriors nut asked KD how the NBA champs are supposed to guard James Harden and Chris Paul, to which he responded disrespectfully with a bunch of laughing emojis:

Shade for sure, but come on… it’s James Harden (10-point effort in an elimination game) and CP3 (never been past the second round). The Rockets could add Carmelo Anthony or Paul George and everyone would still pick the Warriors easily.

45-Year-Old Kevin Millar Goes Yard In His First At-Bat At An Anniversary Independent League Game

25 years ago Kevin Millar started his professional baseball career with the independent league St. Paul Saints. Eventually, he made his way to the bigs and had a long career. Last night, Millar went back to St.Paul for a 25-year anniversary game in his first at-bat in seven years, he cranked one out to left field.

Keep in mind, he’s facing legit pitching from the other team. This wasn’t an old-timers game, just an anniversary game. That pitcher could be half his age and he still went yard.

He kind of called his shot earlier in the day

Michael Strahan Tagging Along on Rodman’s Next North Korea trip?

That’s a possibility, at least according to Rodman. We would be entering real life “The Interview” territory if this happens. Dennis Rodman plans to return to North Korea in August and has invited “Good Morning America” anchor Michael Strahan to go with him. “He very aggressively pushed Michael to join him on the trip. He told him it’s just like every other country,” an insider told Page Six after Strahan landed a controversial interview with Rodman following his return from the country’s capital, Pyongyang. “He hasn’t done a hard news interview like this before and he did a really great job. He was focused and his tone was great,” an insider told us of Strahan. How crazy would it be if two former athletes were the people who brokered peace between the US and NK?

Dwayne Johnson Can’t Resist Trolling Kevin Hart After He Posts a Shirtless Pic

Kevin Hart is currently getting in some R&R in Hawaii before the arrival of his son with wife Eniko Parrish, but if he thought that meant he’d also be catching a break from Dwayne Johnson terrorizing him, he was wrong. Not long after Kevin posted a shirtless Instagram photo of himself relaxing on a yacht did Dwayne capitalize on the opportunity to troll him. «Pls jump overboard,» Dwayne commented. To make matters even better, Nick Cannon also joined in on the fun, writing, «Go put some Gaht Damn clothes on!!! Tired of looking at your ashy ass nipples!!!» Poor Kevin just can’t seem to catch a break.
