Baby, it’s cold outside, if you live in the parts of the country where winter is finally in full swing. But there’s lots to warm you up. R. Kelly is on tour, as are Joe and the recently released from jail, Lyfe Jennings. (Welcome back, Lyfe.) If you missed it, BET’s got the re-air of one of it’s most popular award shows “Black Girls Rock,” and for football bans in the Chi, there’s plenty to cheer for as the 7-1 Bears take on the Houston Texans on national television this weekend. And we know you Bond fans have been waiting for “Skyfall” out this weekend.  Here’s what else is happening around your way. Also, don't forget Sunday kicks off Hug a Veteran Week. It’s also International Tongue Twister Day. Be careful how you combine your holidays.
