Artist's rendering of ice skating ribbon at Maggie Daley Park.

The dates are in for next year’s round of city-sponsored festivals and civic gatherings. Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events has announced several events, including:

Lace up your ice skates. You could be the next Shani Davis , the Chicago-native Olympic speedskater.

Maggie Daley winding ice skating ribbon will open in late Nov. or early Dec. 2014. In summer it will become a walking path.

We can't live without you! Chicago has mourned the loss of a lot of beloved restaurants in its lifetime (HOT DOUG'S WHY?!), and it is devastating every single time. Now that Doug's is gone, what other Chicago restaurants would leave a hole in our hearts (and in our neighborhoods) if they left? Here's 9 Chicago spots that can't close. Want more?

Dove's Luncheonette, 1545 N. Damen Ave. 773-645-4060

Show left to right: Tom Ricketts (Cubs), Andrew Hauptman (Fire), Jerry Reinsdorf (Bulls and White Sox) George McCaskey (Bears) and Rocky Wirtz (Blackhawks). The Chairmen of all six of Chicago's professional sports teams photographed 10/16/14 in Chicago, of course.

The gloomy fall days that Mother Nature has been serving up lately make staying in bed on weekend mornings seem like a viable prospect. These seven restaurants are providing that much-needed motivation to fight the urge to hibernate with newly launched brunch service.

Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) terrifies the kids on "Glee" in workout suits like this one. Wear if with a wig and you can do the same.

Going as quirky Jess (Zooey Deschanel) from Fox's "New Girl" simply means you need to find a vintage frock and act like your about 15 years younger than you really are.

The only thing missing from this image of the talking dog (Jason Gann) in FX's "Wilfred" is a cigarette. Oh, and Bear. <br><a href=",0,7102031.story">"Wilfred" stars discuss Season 2 hopes for Bear</a>

The Great Chicago Fire Festival lights up the riverfront Oct. 4.

Oh and if you want to play 'True American,' the signature game of New Girl, the rules are available online. Just sayin'. </p>
