I went to Nicky's drunk and it was bad even then. Do not recommend.

De Rice in Kenwood is pretty good. It's the best Chinese delivery you're going to get to HP anyway.

You're probably best off ordering a more Chinese-food-esque dish from noodles/snail. Or going to Chinatown like reg says.

Honestly one of my biggest complaints about Hyde park ks the lack of decent Chinese/mexican restaurants.


No Indian is the big problem for me.

You guys are both morons. Rajun isn't horrible, but it's not good either. It's like the Nicky's of Indian food, some might say.

No way. Nicky's will make you physically ill. Rajun will make your insides rejoice. As well as your tongue. This metaphor isn't working out.

Nicky's is some of the worst Chinese I've ever had in my life. Rajun is completely serviceable Indian and easily worth the 9 bucks or whatever for the 7 pounds of food you get.

Strongly disagree. Unless by serviceable you mean "contains calories and will not make you ill." In that case, sure.

However, although there are online calculators (e.g., Pay City) that you can use to estimate your take-home income, they don't appear to take things into account such as personal exemptions, standard deductions, etc.

I just got done creating this Google Doc that anyone can use to easily calculate and compare the take-home incomes in New York and Chicago. (I apologize that the numbers will change if more than one person uses it at the same time, but I didn't want to simply upload an Excel spreadsheet since people are often weary about downloading those.) Lastly, I've refrained from hiding the tax-table tabs so that anyone who wants to see how the taxes are being calculated can.


You're my second favourite poster after el terrible.

I would definitely get a ski jacket/parka. You can make it with just a pea coat a lot of days, but there are some brutal days (and nights) and having a really nice coat makes them so much more bearable. I have a down one from North Face and an omni heat one from Columbia and they're both great. Definitely worth the money.

I've got one of those omni heat Columbia jackets with a removable outer shell that I've only needed when it's snowing hard or was -40. It was like $250 but been well worth it and I'm sure I'll use it for several more years before I need a new one. Good investment.

How much, if at all, do they care about previous professional work experience--like a typical mgmt consulting gig?
