  • Dr. Magic Stuck In South Shore Since 2011

    note to self: avoid Rainbow Beach on Sunday. 😒

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    I hadn't a clue there was a "Chicago's largest gay bar" on the south side. I'm quite sure the patrons don't even try to do down there what they do up here.
