"Connected with Morgan called Myers. Weather Forecasts and Sarah Genders. Traffic reports weekdays 4 to 6 on WG and TV Morning News on the team. Hochberg phone line at 7 22 It is Jen Sabella from Black Club Chicago with some extremely local news beginning With the Red line and what will be a massive disruption, right, Jen? Morning, Bob. Yeah, it sounds like the Red line is going to be offline at a few stops on the far North side for a few weeks, and we knew they were coming for years. They're doing the big headline Mom modernization plan. Their starting on August 16 24 7 worked at some of the stations, and the goal is to kind of Plough through some of this work so they can you know more quickly Get the red line up and running at all stops, But from through July 31st from now on I 31st we know Stop that Granville Thorndale in Braemar, and we have the full guide on our our site here, but also August person second. Granville Thorndale, Bro. Tomorrow be closed, and frankly, the month of August and there will be buses free bus little shuttle service. Between Loyola and Berwyn. So if you are getting off at Granville Carnot, Avram RU will be able to hop on a bus shuttle instead. And you know, people are using the heat a little bit left because of the current virus. Pandemic it home, though this would have been probably a lot worth on people if there hadn't been the pandemic, and they were still ahead, heading down, found work everyday, which some people still are. An essential worker still are obviously but the goal here is, you know, get this thing wrapped up and And hopefully it won't hit businesses too hard. But unfortunately these are being hit hard by the pandemic to so having their stations closed in front of their business, Not great and says should be done August 16th and hopefully it'll stick to schedule. Let's move over to Logan Square. And talk about what one restaurant is doing. And I guess this is a trend, or at least it was before the pandemic, right and no tipping. Right. So tipping has been like controversial in the restaurant world because, you know, it's very much favor the servers and bartenders and a lot of the back kitchen staff will continue to be paid like minimum wage or sub minimum wage on DH. It's created a lot of inequity in restaurants and a lot of on 30 if you went in, you know and had a patio that you counted on being packed, and it rained. That day. There goes your money, so it made I'd that job a lot harder to do. I know I used to be a server, so I used to feel that you, um but now a lot of brush runs are eliminating kipping, and they're adding a service beyond the check. They averaged out what the average person leaves for tips. So they added about 20%. Service be, and it's really working out at middlebrow Bungalow and Logan Square, which is 28 for us, Armitage and they are also able to contribute about $120 a month her offer into their insurance planned and I honestly think this is the future, especially after the pandemic and the risk people are taking by being servers. You gotta offer people you know something to make them feel comfortable in this job, And I think health insurance is a big thing. So, so far so good at middlebrow. They've been doing a lot of takeout, and they're actually selling grocery items as well. On their adding the Dorothy Answer that grocery items. Um yes, it's working out so far, and maybe it'll take off middlebrow. Ah, that's 28 40 West Armitage, Jeff, We'll see what happens. Post pandemic with that, And finally we have News about the passing of someone who, if if you watch Bozo's circus, you saw this guy a number of times, didn't you? This is an amazing story.

Hey, emigrated here from Iraq and in Ah, 1960 he a fed up made it amazing career for himself. He was on like Bo, the circuit. He was in a documentary called The Amazing That They're Ash. Hey, helped, you know coach he helped work, Get Chicago Magic lounge off the ground and just was like, well known In the magic community in the Midwest. People would travel from all over to his shop. And as all the other magic shop closed in the city, they read three more. His was the last one standing and that the back room just became active boxes from these clothes Magic shop than he, but he knew where everything wass, um So they're keeping the place open. You should really check it out. You get kids. They love it at 49 55 Northwestern Avenue, and they're keeping it open in the honor. And to the delight of a lot of magic fans.

afternoon and I like this afternoon because the sun is still out sounds like a clock tonight's that's then and now we've you know we've we've hit a new peak Mr Richard Roper or almost eight o'clock at night and let's talk a little bit about things that people can do this weekend because they're stuck at home for maybe the fifth or sixth weekend and there's there's more to come here and we can talk about things are having on regular television and then of course the over the top stuff as well what do you like well a couple of quick things I wanted to mention though that's good for calving the bears are working on a trade they're looking to trade Mitch Trubisky for reliable internet connection so at forty five they had never regional drum machine there and I know I do not have my drum machine yeah click next time and you know what and I have to mention this to to all my old all of our the learning and Gavin and and Rone everybody that my tax and it would been playing the angels in California tonight like I like to look at the schedule think about Lucas G. lido on the mound against Mike trout in a couple of hours but since that's not happening we're going to segue to our home entertainment choices rolling to start off with one of it's going to be an H. B. L. causing a lot of people of course do have HBO or HBO go in their part of their cable package and there's a movie this is a movie not a series so it's a one off it's you know an hour and forty five minutes it's called bad education now you might remember this in the early two thousands there was this incredible scandal on Long Island the Roslyn school district was ranked one of the top five in the country so property values are going up the community and this guy named Frank the song with the star school superintendent he was really turning everybody you know under this great school system I'm in the meantime he was living out of double life but a triple live and he and his number two were embezzling a total of eleven point two million dollars from the school system for Vegas trips and Hamptons homes and they got away with it forever and Chile high school journalists at the beacon the school paper started looking into like what what are all these bills for repairs on the roof is leaking so the movie's got bad education and Hugh Jackman plays Frank the sum you Jacqueline plays he's perfectly cast year because this guy you just don't use of handsome guy always had beautiful suits you know was very commanding and everybody thought it was a way to work turns out maybe he really wasn't you just had like a photo of his dead wife in the office if you Jacqueline gives one of the best performances of his career as this guy so this is very much in the vein of movies like the big short and I Tonya and American hustle where they take a real life scandal and turned into a great fictional movie I love this film three and a half stars for bad education and it's a single film this is not a this is not a situation where you have to sit around and wait for the next episode now I need to know if if it's a major movie I mean it starts you Jacqueline Allison Janney academy award winner and she places number two in the office and she's like she's got you know so she's like with the number two person in the school superintendent's office right so you know she's making a a a reasonable middle class salary and she's got like a million dollar home in the Hamptons well okay so it's interesting because I've seen the commercial for this and I'm like this totally does look like a Hollywood release was it recently attended is that I'm I'm honestly not sure it might have been an HBO original movie from the start but it certainly plays like a full feature length film and at the end it is the kind of star because it's not a giant superhero movie it's ME it's perfect for your comfort living room viewing if you and if you love just it's just a great old fashioned movie you know about it about this scandal and it's it's really funny and it's outrageous at the heart of it is because you Jack man who'd like you know he even goes it gets a little bit talk at one point I'm the school dine they're using the company credit cards like nobody's business and this week it's really incredible especially it's got that classic epilogue and we see what happened to the real life people in this movie because of all the characters here all the major characters are based on real life figures and who really did the stuff you see in this world it's interesting as Hugh Jackman is now become a character actor he is one of the best looking leading man most talented leading men in Hollywood in decades right you can do everything the same dance he's got the whole thing going and and is it is a nuanced comedian he can do drama and now he's sort of shifting before almost before his time into a guy who is now you just want to take those kind of rough edged character parts I think you know he he did it because he did the you know he did do the romantic comedies and dramas and stuff but I think he could do that in his sleep and as you mentioned he's a real renaissance man you check with the kind of singular count on he would be a major movie star in the thirties or the fifties or the seventies you know he has that kind of wide ranging talent but I think he I think you're absolutely right I think what draws him to roles like this is it something different because he's not you know he's playing a guy at first watch to be like oh yeah typical you Jack when he's the hero school superintendent the ladies are all fawning all over him he's got this connection with the students but it's all a sham it's all a con job to the point where you know I don't give too much away but their trips to Vegas and things that happen where you're like how did he get away with this well for what now it is good to record this because it does totally looks like at they get Adam McKay because it it it's got that feeling like you know you got from the big short you got from those other kinds of movies that that had this it almost myopic view where you get to look inside the souls of these people are doing the wrong thing yeah the the directors a guide by the name of a Cory Finley AT and I honestly you know do not know a lot of Cory Finley's work out but it's clearly influenced by some of the films we've talked about because it has you know almost as breezy style to it early on in kind of a a soundtrack that's kind of you know like you're going along for the ride and then you know the the music changes and the total look of the film changes things get more and more serious but that it's just a terrific screenplay as well the screenplay was actually written by a guy who was a middle school student in the district at the time oh my god which is really cool too you know so he was like an eighth grader something at the time of this scandal so he wrote this it's a fictional screenplay but it's clearly yeah he's clearly a guy would know the territory and they do a beautiful job in the film you know you feel that certain kinda Long Island working upper middle class Allison Janney got the accent down as those you Jack you know you believe that they were born and bred there right this is not New York City this is yet we completely Long Island and of course this is not dissimilar from the Long Island Lolita era of Long Island real long on was really just sort of known more for stupid scandal it was an absolute and and another actor who's not who's carved out a really big guy cool career as a character actor ray Romano who's seen in movies like the Irishman and he plays the school board president here who's perfected this year he's remodels great and he didn't know about it but it's also like how did you not know about yeah because nobody wanted to ask any questions because the test scores were through the roof and as I mentioned the realtors were always sending gift baskets the Frank the sounds like all these people were moving from all over the northeast the eastern part of the country to live there because the public school system was getting these kids in the harbor to yell and they never he never he didn't fudge the test scores he really was that good of an educator Frank the sound guy played by Hugh Jackman I just thought maybe he should have a few more Bucks for herself which we run as Mercedes going to school at you know if Lori Laughlin had known about this she would not be going to jail that was that's the one thing when I was in the second bad education H. B. O. premieres this Sunday evening all right and we'll be there all right let's talk about that let's talk about the Jordan I keep going to Jordan show it's it's not the lap dance there are a lot of it is not going to be about Jordan in the two episodes we're gonna see this week so we'll talk about that and other things that you can watch on Netflix and things are not comparing Richard Roeper is here if you got a phone call to get the question three one two nine eight one seven two hundred you've got something that you absolutely love on television and you want to tell us about it you can do that as well three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred let us in now check in with Lauren after here's the traffic but you by the Illinois department of transportation the south shore line has announced that all monthly passes purchased for may will be valid for the entire month of June due to the extension of the stay at home order starting tonight at ten CTA southbound red line trains will not stop at Granville Thorndale four Brynmawr until four AM Monday.
