The [Friday] Papers

"The Chicago Sun-Times has ended its lease at 350 N. Orleans effective at the end of 2014, according to building owner Shorenstein Properties LLC.," the Tribune notes.

"The newspaper's owner has been leasing 98,000 square feet at the riverfront building bearing the paper's name since 2004. It is unclear whether the paper will move to another building or reduce its space."

Or just ask everyone to work from home.

-

Alternatives:

* Or just ask everyone to work out of Peet's (because Starbuck's is too expensive).

* Seeking phone booth to lease to better suit downsized staff.

* Considering a move to a closed school because those buildings are used to being under utilized.

-

Yes, I know, there aren't really phone booths around anymore.

In possibly related news, Joe Berrios gathered his staff yesterday to consider resigning for family reasons.

Al Sanchez is a real Chicago creature. In The [Alfred Sanchez] Papers.

An old-school creature. These are the new-schoolers.

Phony Baloney
"A Chicago federal judge has delayed the bribery trial of state Rep. Derrick Smith after prosecutors said they needed time to locate phone records," AP reports.

The punch line is way too easy, so just think it in your head and move on.

Booze Cruise
"Chicagoans could do their Sunday morning booze shopping three hours earlier, under a change in the works by Mayor Rahm Emanuel's City Council floor leader," WLS-AM notes.

"Ten years after relaxing Chicago's liquor law to give people an early start on Sunday champagne brunch, Ald. Pat O'Connor (40th) wants to permit the sale of 'package goods liquor' at 8 a.m., instead of 11 a.m. on Sunday."

The champagne brunch lobby has entirely too much power in this city.

*

Nonetheless, why limit the hours at all?

*

"The change stems from O'Connor's efforts to lure a new grocer into the site of a now-shuttered Dominick's on Lincoln Avenue just north of Foster Avenue."

Yes, of course it does!

"I've been talking with people who own grocery store chains. I'm kind of getting a primer on how grocery stores make money and don't make money and this came up. If they're leaving revenue on the table and they could make more money from something so simple, it's worth looking at," O'Connor said.

Hint: The markup on booze is tremendous.

*

On the other hand, nothing good happens before 11 a.m.
