The [Tuesday] Papers
Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari may have just gotten engaged, and the whole world of total dipshits may be obsessing about the Royal Wedding, but we had something occur last night at the Beachwood Inn that easily tops both.
After a couple Schlitzes for him and a couple of glasses of red wine for her, a gentleman patron we had never met announced to the bar that he had something he wanted to say. He then got down off his bar stool and onto one knee and proposed to his sweetie. She accepted and Beachwood history was made.

Here Come The Hawks!
Maybe he should throw in a job.
And We Don't Even Get A Car
Wouldn't it be funny if they all turned out to be the same person?
Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken Flameout
International Pop Overthrown
Garbage In, Garbage Out
Maybe Englewood could use one of Rahm's service projects.
The Beachwood Tip Line: Fried and tied.
