It's a big week for Capricorns!
Nick Podesta (Jan. 6) is one of the brains behind Liquor Creek Management/Star 3, which owns two of the city's hottest properties: the modern French-American Duchamp in Bucktown; and Lumen, a Euro-inspired lounge with a bangin' sound system in the Warehouse District.
Christian Armand (Jan. 9), known for spinning smooth beats ranging from deep soul to hip-hop, has played just about everywhere, including Sushi Samba, Sonotheque and Double Door. You can catch his show online every Sunday 9-11pm CST here.
And the National Restaurant Association's ultra-fab Derrek Hull (Jan. 10) is responsible for keeping foodie journalists from around the world in the loop when they come for the NRA Show and International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event every spring.
Happy Birthday, guys!
