Best 'Morning After' Brunch?!

Uhm, OK, CitySearch rounds up the best breakfast spots to go after a one-night stand. Classy!

A Chicago connection—sorta—to the Puff Daddy party tonight


I soooo need to be in LA right NOW.

My girl DJ Kiss, the hottie New York deejay who's spun for the likes of Lenny Kravitz, chef Gordon Ramsay and Puff Daddy (or whatever he's calling himself these days!), performs tonight at the private party celebrating Puffy getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

It's rumored that he's spending $4 million for this little shindig where 250 of his closest friends have been invited.

If you're curious as to why Puffy is bringing Kiss on as the only deejay for the night, don't miss her when she returns to Chicago next month. She's already played her special mix of mashups at J Bar (610 N. Rush St., 312-660-7200), NV Penthouse Lounge (116 W. Hubbard St., 312-329-9960), Le Passage (937 N. Rush St., 312-255-0022) and Lumen (839 W. Fulton Market, 312-733-2222), so I'll keep you updated on where she hits town next.

A change is comin' in River North

312 Dining Diva broke the story a few weeks ago that Randy Zweiban was resigning from Nacional 27 (325 W. Huron St., 312-664-2727), so now here's more exclusive dining news you can use:

Look for Madame Tartine, a 1970s-style brasserie, to take over BB's at 22 E. Hubbard St. soon. Even though BB's partner Donnie Kruse (Melvin B's, Stanley's, Butterfield 8) has had much success with his current concept, he's decided to change it up.

He's teaming up with super-successful restaurateur Jonathan Segal (PJ Clarke's, Minnies) for this next project. Look for more information soon because they're still in the planning process.

And speaking of hot new spots, there's word that celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's coming to town in 2009!
