Holy Sh*t, I'm standing last night on my porch around 10:45pm having my drinks before heading downtown to Gibson's, and this huge animal which I later learn to be a coyote, zipped at 100mph past my house east on Hutchinson. Unreal.
Are you sure it was a coyote? They're not really huge. They typically average around 40lbs. But I wouldn't be surprised if you did see one. There are at least 2000 coyote in Chicago, probably more. I've seen a few, especially at night.
BRIAN: Got there at 11:15pm. We stayed until 2:00am, My wife ordered crab cake, and I ordered the Chicago cut bone in rib eye paired with a lobster cocktail and salad. Always crowded at Gibson's - fun place.
My man, that’s what I’m talkin about. Well done! What an awesome way to close out a week. Love to see a coyote in Chicago but have never had the pleasure in 20 years there.
Treating your wife to a late night dinner and drinks like royals roll is the icing on the cake. Please post more often. This place has been a ghost town of late. You are slaying Sunday nights and we love it. Keep it up
There was a racoon on my 3rd floor porch, maybe 15 years ago. And a rabbit in my yard 7-8 years ago. I've never seen such wildlife in Chicago in my 60+ years of living here. I don't love near a park or forest preserve either.
Actually, it was a big scandal in the family. Mom's cousin asked if her son Vince could live with her, as he wanted to move back to Chicago from California. He was an old soul in a young body, and she was a young soul in an old body. They never married, but no hanky panky either (he was very religious). I think he died of a broken heart, as he passed away 7 months after she did.
Here's a cute story for you... My mom, being a Depression baby, would check the coin returns slots on the vending machines whenever they went to the laundromat. When she wasn't looking, Vince would put some coins in a few slots for her to find. So sweet.
