11/27/2016 00:00:00 Álvaro Siza: Gateway to the Alhambra Northeast $10 - $19

Through renderings, models and sketches, large-scale photographs and video, the exhibition reveals the artistic challenge behind Siza's design of the visitor centre that includes a courtyard, auditorium and restaurant. Also on display will be architectural objects from the Alhambra's own collection such as ceramic tiles, marble capitals and carved doors, providing a glimpse into why this World Heritage Site has inspired countless artists and architects since the 14th century. Siza's extension is only the latest chapter in a history of renovations at the Alhambra, stretching back to AD 889, when the Moors first built a small fortress from the shattered remains of Roman fortifications.

In what one Chicago-area Buick dealership is calling a “White Friday” sale, customers who buy any brand new Buick or GMC vehicle on Nov. 28 and 29 will have the chance to get all that money back come Christmas, reports the Chicago Tribune.
The catch is, it has to snow six inches or more on Christmas Day, a measurement that must be recorded at the O’Hare International Airport weather station.
The chances of getting any amount of snowfall in Chicago on that day are between 40% to 50%, according to the Illinois Climatologist office, much less an entire six inches.
Even so, if the dealership is smart, it’s got some kind of insurance policy backing this deal up.
