Katie has all your local news with 'What's Up Chicago?!'

It appears another Amazon distribution center is coming to Chicagoland!

  • Rumor has it Amazon has spent more than $50 million for the former site of Old Chicago in Bolingbrook. 
  • The site housed Old Chicago from 1975 through 1980.
  • Old Chicago featured circus performers, amusement rides and a concert venue, but it failed due costs and the fact that visitors didn't come back. 
  • No official word from Amazon on when it will be up and running. 

Honda is recalling a quarter of a million of their best selling minivans.

  • 241,000 Odyssey minivans are being recalled to fix a wiring problem that could cause a fire.
  • The recall is specific to the EX-L, Touring and Elite minivans from the 2018 through 2020 model years.
  • Owners will be notified by mail by mid-March.

Gerber is looking for their new Gerber baby!

  • You have until February 21 to submit photos and videos of your little one. They can't be older than 4.
  • If your child wins, they will be the 2020 Gerber ambassador.
  • Plus, they get $25,000!
  • Your child will be judged on the following criteria: Visual appeal, Expressiveness, Consistency with Gerber's heritage "Anything for Baby" mission

New reports say 57 minutes is the ideal time for a first date.

  • Experts say fifty-seven minutes is the perfect amount of time to grab one round of drinks, sip down one coffee, and figure out whether you have a connection to make a second date. 5
  • 7 mins give you the perfect out if it isn't a match, it respects the time of both people, and it keeps you from sharing TOO much
