Missing our bubbe!
It’s Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year), and while we can’t be with our grandmother this year, a sesame bagel and a schmear of lox spread from New York Bagel & Bialy, 7714 W. Touhy, Lincolnwood (847-677-9388), reminds us of bagels shared with her. A dozen bagels and a tub of lox spread will set you back $8.40 and $6.99, respectively. And did we mention it’s open 24 hours?
Up, up and away

Conjunction junction, we know your function
Scott Ferguson’s “School House Rock Live!” celebrates the catchy and informative animated musical shorts from the ’70s. Show time is 8 tonight at Mary’s Attic (above Hamburger Mary’s, 5400 N. Clark; 773-784-6969). Tickets are $10 — not a lot of cash, considering these jingles got us through eighth-grade grammar and 10th-grade civics.
