Chicagoist dived head first into 2011. They interviewed former Fall Out Boy vocalist Patrick Stump; watched in amazement as former Senator Carol Moseley Braun’s mayoral campaign self-imploded, ran previously unseen photographs from an unknown street photographer whose work is gaining a wide, posthumous audience; published Art Shay’s story a chance encounter with Elizabeth Taylor 50 years ago; and had some fun looking at reader photographs of the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge at North Avenue Beach.
