Souper troop! With publisher Dan Uslan congratulating the talented participants in our inaugural event of winter deliciousness, Souper Chefs.
Every time we start gathering ideas for the next issue of Michigan Avenue, I can’t help but fall in love with the city all over again. Can you blame me? There are so many reasons to celebrate Chicago and so many incredible stories to tell of people whose passion is to make this town a better place. At Michigan Avenue, it’s our mission and our privilege to tell those stories, and though it may be a daunting task to whittle down that long list of story ideas each issue, it’s one we’re thrilled to take on.

And what a list of stories we’ve gathered in this, our Women We Love issue. From fashion and culture to dining, celebrity, sports, and business, on page after page we’re shining a spotlight on some of the city’s most amazing females, from World Cup soccer champion Christen Press to award-winning chef Mindy Segal, star-in-the-making Lana Condor, gemologist Eve Rogers, and cover star Anna Chlumsky, the West Side native who shot to fame as a child actor in the ’90s and has matured gracefully into a hilarious costar on HBO’s Veep.
As always, we also have dining, culture, and fashion in our sights this month, from the buzzworthy opening of new River North Italian hot spot Il Porcellino to a must-see new exhibit from artist Carlos Rolón/ Dzine to the latest breakouts in the city’s ever-booming start-up scene. It’s shaping up to be an incredible spring—and the perfect time to fall in love with Chicago all over again.
