Are you out in it? We're on it. All the street-level tunes, flicks, chow, cocktails and more from sources around the city ...

Ladies and gentlemen, start your shopping carts!

Five reasons the Chiditarod, the annual charitable shopping-cart race/bar crawl through Wicker Park, is way cooler than Alaska's Iditarod:

1. We've never seen a sled cross the Iditarod finish line with 25 pounds of food in it.

2. Hungry Robot costumes don't mix too well with the Alaskan tundra.

3. Sabotage!

4. Apparently, they frown upon competitors drinking during the Iditarod. We have no idea why.

5. Iditarod entry fee: $4000 Chiditarod entry fee: $30-$50. 'Nuff said.


The 4th Annual Chiditarod is on March 7; visit the Web site for details on registration, volunteering, rules and more.
