The [New Year's Week] Papers

We'll continue slouching toward the New Year with a sporadic Beachwood until returning in full on January 3rd.

Oh hell, we've got a full Beachwood today!

* Political New Year's Resolutions

* The Blue & Orange Kool-Aid Report

* The Week in Comic Books

* This Weekend on CAN TV

* The Week in WTF

And previously this week . . .

* "Malcolm Glazer's son belies Manchester United's austerity by buying luxury Chicago apartment," the Telegraph reports. "The deal is listed as the biggest in Chicago in 2010, surpassing the $8.18m paid by options trader Igor Chernomzav for a 52nd floor apartment in March."

* "Long before Marge Simpson or Amy Winehouse created a buzz sporting beehive hairdos, it had to be invented," the TribLocal Elmhurst reports.

"And that's how Margaret Vinci Heldt, a star in the world of hair design, made her name.

"The iconic style first fashioned in 1960 by Heldt, now a spry and vivacious 92-year-old who now lives at Lexington Square Retirement Community in Elmhurst, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010.

"From 1950 through the 70s, Heldt operated Margaret Vinci Coiffures on Michigan Avenue. Editors at Modern Beauty Salon magazine had noticed things were getting a bit dull and lank in the hair scene so they turned to Heldt, known as an innovator, to come up with a new style to turn heads.

"'Nothing much had happened since the French Twist, the Page Boy and the Flip,' Heldt said. 'They told me, We want you to come up with something really different.'"

* The Beachwood Inn says: "New Year's Eve Bash at the Beachwood. No cover, never had one never will. Chicken and Catfish brought in from Harold's with plenty of sides. FREE party favors and FREE Champagne toast at midnight. The jukebox will be rockin' all night, plus our usual Friday night drink specials. Bob, Tammy, Kim, Ben . . . and a slew of regulars will be on hand to help ring in the New Year. HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE!"

Let me add: No politics in the bar, people. Just rock.

* Post-New Year's revelry/recovery will continue Monday night at the Beachwood Inn with yours truly behind the bar. Ask for the insider's special.

* Neil Steinberg does not like black people.

* 2010 in Review: Was Kanye West The Best?

* I Want My Google TV

* Fantasy Fix: Carlos Pena Will Hit More HRs Than Adam Dunn And Other Predictions For 2011

* The Schindler Elevators At Barnes & Noble

* The Casino Meat Is A-Cookin'

* In Action! Elvis Costello at the Chicago Theatre

* Chicagoetry: I Wanna Paint Really Cool Murals, Man

* SportsMonday: Lovie's Secret Sauce
