Cold Comforts

Take the DVDS, leave the cases.

Outside, visibility low due to snow. Inside, visibility nil. Someone lit a fire to be warm and it smoked them out!

New rules for Bar Louie: after 8pm, no baggy pants.

O, Spirit!

Clark Street throws caution tape to the wind.

worst. Christmas lights display. Ever.

It rang as I reached for it. Though it was cold n rainy I agreed to meet at Dunkin Donuts instead of just leaving it on the Fusion salon ledge. My Christmas Eve good deed!

Emptiness, inside and out.

The cavernous area that was once Linens & Things celebrates it's one year anniversary.

Modern Italian restaurant Socca heats the corner of Clark and School.

Sorry for the delay. Here we go!

I took this pic at an arcade in Australia. You couldn't say those things here.

This box is so you can pop out of it for a surprise for your lover. It's $18. As opposed to the $5 version at Mailbox ETC.

Tech support your local authorities.

Trashy Reading

How Salt & Pepper runs all those TVs.

Nothing like overflowing, wet, stinky garbage in the sun. Wait, what's on top there...?

Some kid from 1977 lost his schoolbook.

Packing up The Zoo. The space under the tracks on Roscoe was in Public Enemies, but no one stays there very long.

Bad: Scrawled on an abandoned store window.

Badder: the new 2009 stripper names.

Worst: sad reminder that there is no such thing as a safe neighborhood. This is Clark & Belmont, just steps from Orange.

This ATM works fine. The store puts up these notes to drive business to their in-store ATM.

That's a screenshot of the Chicago Chinatown website... This coming Sunday is the "Chinatown Festival" (basically a "Taste of Chinatown") and what better way to celebrate than by printing out a coupon from McDonalds for a Free Happy Meal!! Move over, General Tso!!


from the Tribune:

Peddlers balk at move

Expanding Wrigley no-sell zone would kill business, vendors say

Sidewalk peddlers who hawk peanuts, T-shirts and novelty items outside Wrigley Fieldreacted angrily Friday to an alderman's proposal to move them two blocks from the ballpark, saying that they not only add to game-day excitement but also need to earn a living. "We all went out there, got our permits and spent thousands of dollars on inventory, and now they are going to change the rules in the middle of the summer," said John Bakerbefore the 1:20 p.m. game. Several vendors said they will be unable to sell merchandise outside the immediate vicinity of the park. "If they do this, we will all be out of work," said Joe Sienkiewicz, 46, a self-describedWhite Sox fan and T-shirt purveyor. "We have families. We have children."

Smarter than the average realtor.
