Etas Hooch Intense To A Fault
By Richard Christiansen, Entertainment editor April 3, 1986
Charles Michael Moore has directed his Vietnam drama “The Hooch” with such burning intensity that it’s a pity his ambitious script doesnt have much spark. Himself a veteran of the Vietnam conflict, Moore has set his soldiers story in a “hooch,” or barracks hut, which serves as a crucible of prejudice and fear for the six black and two white soldiers housed there in 1968. On stage at the ETA Creative Arts Foundation, the soldiers dash in and out and up and down the aisles on.
Entrepreneur hopes we take a shine
By Jenny Jarvie, Tribune Newspapers: Los Angeles Times March 26, 2007
Joseph Michalek makes liquor the old fashioned way, slowly heating corn mash in a large copper still. As for the rest of his moonshine operation, he steers clear of Southern mountain traditions. A relative newcomer to the Appalachian foothills, Michalek, 38, does not haul sacks of grain or sugar to a creek or cast a wary eye about for federal tax agents. Instead, the Northern entrepreneur with gelled hair, crisp bluejeans and polished Dr. Martens stands in front of a retro gray Anton.
Despite Flaws, Vietnam Drama Still Worthy
By Chris Jones. Special to the Tribune March 7, 1998
One of the great joys of ETA Creative Arts Foundation is that most of its plays are warm, humanistic and uplifting. Given that the subject of Charles Michael Moore’s “The Hooch” is the experiences of a group of soldiers in Vietnam (a war that’s generally a symbol of the cold, the inhumane and the depressing), the striking spirit and good humor behind Moore’s writing is strong enough to overshadow most of the play’s contrivances and awkward patches.

While great company and festive decorations are always important, everyone knows the true secret to a fabulous winter fete is holiday spirit or better yet, spirits. We asked some of Chicago’s merriest mixologists to share their favorite holiday concoctions, in hopes of banishing the usual tired nogs and toddies to Christmases past. Candy Cane Martini Paul Phillips, general manager of Bucktown’s Club Lucky (1824 W. Wabansia Ave. 773 227 2300), was inspired by all of the candy canes in the movie version.
Speck’s High Life Shouldn’t Have Been A Shock
By Bob Greene May 19, 1996
Legislators and corrections officials are expressing shock and surprise at the free rein that Richard Speck and his friends apparently enjoyed during the years that Speck was an inmate at Stateville Prison. They shouldn’t be so startled. Speck talked very freely about it,
and his comments were available to them. In March of 1978, during an interview I had with him inside the walls of Stateville, Speck confessed for the first time to murdering the eight young women in 1966. He was.
Highway to hooch

The best part of staying in motels (other than pocketing the ashtrays) is sipping cocktails in their uber kitschy bars. Talk about primo people watching! And with red hot Motel, the new highway pit stop themed spot from Mas’ Hubie Greenwald, still not open yet (try late November), we had to get our fix elsewhere. Hidden Cove OK, so this isn’t part of a motel, but it’s near a slew of Lincoln Avenue inns such as Apache, Diplomat and Summit. We were hoping to find a tiki fest with Hawaiian decor, but ended.
Q I’ve been fighting a battle with my cholesterol levels.
By Dr. Sometimes my cholesterol is up and then back down again, changing like the seasons. Is that a possibility? Do cholesterol levels change with the weather? A It’s debatable. Some experts say yes, while others insist it just doesn’t happen. I used to worry about which cafe was the coolest place to lunch, which shade of raspberry lipstick to wear with which shoes, and whether I was drinking the right brand of vodka. My thoughts still turn to the temperature, fruit and alcohol, but right now I’m watching tiny baby fruits appear on our trees and wondering how.
Turner Hooch, Without The Dog, Is A Bad Movie
By Gene Siskel July 28, 1989
Our Flick of the Week is the oddball detective comedy “Turner Hooch,” starring Tom Hanks and a mangy dog named Hooch. For what it’s worth, this dog a De Bordeaux, sort of an oversized bulldog is a lot more appealing than the hound in the similarly themed “K 9.” He drools, his jowls flap, and he’s nothing if not photogenic. The dog is easily the most appealing element of the film, which otherwise is a routine caper picture with Hanks and Hooch trying to solve the murder of.
