The End is Right Round the Corner

The parking lot between Irish Oak and Tryst is becoming a building. Thank G, we desperately need more sportsbars.

And the Clark n Addison Bar Louie is fini.

The photobooth in the Risque Cafe. Yay for the ole Chinky-Eyes!

The classic two-tiered vomit.

None of that identity theft or credit card fraud for these criminals... "Keepin' It Real!" All you need is a black n white striped shirt, a domino mask and a canvas sack.

Crash into Clark

The Chicago-branch of the Dave Matthews Band Revenge Squad makes it way to Wrigley.

If they like the light, saccharine tunes of Dave Matthews this is the perfect street food.

Joey's Brickhouse on Belmont is gone. They left some signs. "Mostly, we'd like to thank our landlord, Matt Wilbur. Even though it didn't work out we hope he gets what he DESERVES." Gulp. GL, Matt.

Last line: "It's scary not knowing what's next. It's even scarier staying when you're not wanted."

And "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah" means "I Love You."

And in extremely scary news:

A 22-year-old Chicago man was arrested over the weekend for plotting to carry out a bombing outside a strip of crowded Wrigleyville night spots, according to the FBI.

They also alleged that Sami Samir Hassoun, of the 4700 block of North Kedzie Avenue, had previously discussed a number of violent plots in Chicago, including a biological attack on the city, poisoning Lake Michigan, attacking police officers, bombing the Willis Tower and assassinating Mayor Richard Daley.

Ahhh, Fall.

Feathers fill the autumn air.

A restful slumber in the crisp evening does wonders for the soul.

Laura will not be attending, but Ron WILL be there.

That mint you like (Creme de Menthe?) is going out of style.

Junk food for thought.
