Someone's Having a Birthday!

Cue up the Birthday Song . . . three local stars shine this week:

Edwin Rios a.k.a. DJ Bear Who? (Jan. 18) is one of the hardest-working entertainers on the local nightlife scene. Spinning his own brand of hard-hitting house music, the producer/remixer/deejay holds down the outrageous Zoo Fridays at Vain every week. Check out his remixes here.

Look out for former Courtright's executive chef Ryan McCaskey (Jan. 19) to debut with his first project in the Chicagoland area sometime this summer. The highly regarded chef's meeting with architects and working on the concept so we cannot wait to see what he creates.

And Michael Kaulentis (Jan. 21) is one of the partners behind The Lucky Lady, Manor, RiNo and Stay. The showy, celeb-magnet venues draw long lines on the weekend for performances by the likes of Akon, Benji Madden, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and others.
