The 3@3: Casino reform, glitzing up the Mag Mile and Chicago's single life

Today on the 3@3, Chicago Magazine's David Bernstein and Crain's Chicago Business Reporter Brigid Sweeney talk with host Steve Edwards about the topics of the day.

Which include:

Mag Mile (AP)

Steve Edwards: Governor Quinn doesn’t trust lawmakers when they say they would reform gambling. Does he have a point?  

Brigid Sweeney: A proposed ordinance has Michigan Avenue going all electric boogaloo. Will this be a big change to the Mag Mile? Do we care if the historic district gets a little glitz and glamor?

David Bernstein: A New York Times article about going single in Chicago has caused quite a stir. Did the writer nail us to a tee? Or did she get it all wrong?
