Let me start by saying that I don’t remember the last time I did a website/blogpost that wasn’t about our next menu or event. What’s slightly weird about that, is I truly enjoy writing. I enjoy reading even more. For those that don’t believe me, just ask Jada, Terry, Nick, Latice, Kesha or Cherie…#deyknow. I also encourage and help writers that reach out to me on how to translate their narrative. I will be the first to admit that when it comes to writing recipes, I often hesitate. I know…I know…I’m working on getting better. I am well aware that most of my social media posts deal with #foodandwine, #truffles, #music, #prince, #trapmusic, #rooftops, #Kanye, anti-#turkeybacon rants, going to the market, #paris, #chile, #NOLA, #barbecue or #popups. I’m sure there are more subjects but this post can’t be too long, you have other things to do.
My primary reason for this post is because I just want to take some time to recognize my hometown…#CHICAGO. There are some that would say this is a pitch, straight down the pipe, #whateverman. This summer has given me the opportunity to see my city in an even better light. We show up and we show out. Let me state that I am not looking at my city through #champagne filled glasses. We have our issues but so much of the energy within this city is strong and incredible. There is a fearlessness about Chicagoans and we will take chances ANYWHERE! I love the fact that from every industry of importance, we have greatness. And when you ask us where we are from, it’s like #clarkkent tearing open his suit to become #superman. We CANNOT wait to let you know where we are from. We don’t just stop at our beloved city, it’s a must that we let you know which side. Which is of major importance because of sports, pizza, barbecue and chicken.
It’s for these reasons and more why I say THANK YOU CHICAGO. I thank you for the daily support that you have shown me, my business and my team. In addition to that, your inspiration has served as a MAJOR platform for me to work and inspire others. You have shown me true evidence that greatness is measured by how much YOU give back, support and share. I thank you for fueling the desire to get better EVERYDAY at my craft…with NO APOLOGIES. And I love it! Chicagoans are always working to make it. For every level that we attain, we have our eye on the next one. Working hard is our #dna and the world already knows it.
I don’t get to hang out with you as much as I would love to. That doesn’t stop me from acknowledging your road to greatness. You do so much to change the dark stories told to the public for ratings. Our city is beautiful. Our people are beautiful. Our hearts are strong. Our neighborhoods are amazing. And for the short season of summer that we get every year, we are the most beautiful stage in the theater of the world. Thank You Chicago for being you.

Symantec Security Response encourages all users and administrators to adhere to the following basic security "best practices":
- Use a firewall to block all incoming connections from the Internet to services that should not be publicly available. By default, you should deny all incoming connections and only allow services you explicitly want to offer to the outside world.
- Enforce a password policy. Complex passwords make it difficult to crack password files on compromised computers. This helps to prevent or limit damage when a computer is compromised.
- Ensure that programs and users of the computer use the lowest level of privileges necessary to complete a task. When prompted for a root or UAC password, ensure that the program asking for administration-level access is a legitimate application.
- Disable AutoPlay to prevent the automatic launching of executable files on network and removable drives, and disconnect the drives when not required. If write access is not required, enable read-only mode if the option is available.
- Turn off file sharing if not needed. If file sharing is required, use ACLs and password protection to limit access. Disable anonymous access to shared folders. Grant access only to user accounts with strong passwords to folders that must be shared.
- Turn off and remove unnecessary services. By default, many operating systems install auxiliary services that are not critical. These services are avenues of attack. If they are removed, threats have less avenues of attack.
- If a threat exploits one or more network services, disable, or block access to, those services until a patch is applied.
- Always keep your patch levels up-to-date, especially on computers that host public services and are accessible through the firewall, such as HTTP, FTP, mail, and DNS services.
- Configure your email server to block or remove email that contains file attachments that are commonly used to spread threats, such as .vbs, .bat, .exe, .pif and .scr files.
- Isolate compromised computers quickly to prevent threats from spreading further. Perform a forensic analysis and restore the computers using trusted media.
- Train employees not to open attachments unless they are expecting them. Also, do not execute software that is downloaded from the Internet unless it has been scanned for viruses. Simply visiting a compromised Web site can cause infection if certain browser vulnerabilities are not patched.
- If Bluetooth is not required for mobile devices, it should be turned off. If you require its use, ensure that the device's visibility is set to "Hidden" so that it cannot be scanned by other Bluetooth devices. If device pairing must be used, ensure that all devices are set to "Unauthorized", requiring authorization for each connection request. Do not accept applications that are unsigned or sent from unknown sources.
