Need a little extra help? Chicago Anytime Assistants can give a hand by picking up laundry, waiting for the cable guy, do a little shopping, whatever. As a special to GB readers, they're offering your first hour of service for free -- just mention you saw it on Gapers Block.*
*Of course, it goes without saying, don't abuse this deal. Offer may be canceled at any time, without notice. GB is not responsible, yadda yadda, etc., etc.
