Catching up to Keanu

Keanu ReevesBy Jae-Ha Kim

If you think that cute guy you saw heading into Tempo last week looked a lot like Keanu Reeves, there’s a good chance that it was.

Reeves has returned to Chicago to film “Hardball.” He first made his presence in the Windy City known four years ago when he shot “Chain Reaction.” You can bet that he’ll be out and about in the city this time around, too.

Note: Keep your eyes peeled for announcements of his band Dogstar’s performances. Wherever Reeves goes, the group follows.

Here are some of Reeves’ favorite stomping grounds:

•  The Four Seasons. Boul Mich. Home away from home for movie stars.

•  Cabrini-Green. Where a good chunk of “Hardball” is being shot.

•  Metro. Wrigleyville. A big music fan, Reeves has headlined there and caught some bands.

•  Raw Bar. Wrigleyville. Has been spotted there partying.

•  Cubby Bear. Wrigleyville. Went there to hear bands.

•  Double Door. Wicker Park. His band has played there.

•  Park West. Lincoln Park. Ditto.

•  Gibsons Steakhouse. Near North Side. A favorite dinner spot.

•  Tempo. On Chestnut. Late-night spot. The regulars leave him alone.
