ICYMI Weekly Roundup: Battle of the Beans

April 13, 2018

Here’s everything we’ve been reading this week that we just don’t want you to miss out on:

Chicago and Houston are beefing after the Texas city installed a huge silver abstract art piece and dubbed it their very own, “Bean.” This story has everything: twists and turns, Twitter fights, geographically and culturally-motivated shade-throwing… Who knew the fight over shiny objects named after foods could get so heated? Call us biased, but we’re siding with Chicago on this one. (NPR)

In tandem with the release of her new album "Invasion of Privacy," GQ profiled hip hop wunderkind Cardi B. Maybe you've seen it on your feed this week but decided not to click the link. That would be a mistake. Not only is it an incredible piece of journalism, but it gives real insight into the life of one of the biggest rap superstars in the game. (GQ)

Keeping up with the endless whirlwind that is the fashion industry - who’s in at which design house, who’s rumored to be out, which collections are changing the game, what trends are noteworthy - can be confusing to say the least. Dazed has you covered with a breakdown of the most recent switch-ups in an article aptly titled, “How to Pretend You’re Up to Date With the Latest Moves in Fashion.” (Dazed Digital)

It was announced this week that the next season of Comedy Central's "Broad City" will be its last. The end of the show doesn't mean showrunners and stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are going anywhere though - three new projects are in the works with the network. While we'll miss the drug-induced shenanigans of Abbi and Ilana's eponymous characters, we're looking forward to what's next from the comedy super-duo. (Deadline)

Baseball season is in full swing and the Chicago Cubs want you at every home game. With the introduction of a ticket lottery system 10/Sixty, the Cubs are making 60 tickets available for just $10 through their online raffle. Registration opens 48 hours before every game all season long. (MLB)
