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!!

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."
