Living in the city just got more expensive, thanks to the City Council. The good news: Owners of big-ass SUVs will have to pay $90 instead of $75 for their city stickers. The bad news: Eating at Chicago restaurants is going to cost you an extra .25% in sales tax in addition to the 8.75% you already pay for a meal away from home. [Trib login: gapers/gapers]
