  • jaye els Returned to Hyde Park Kenwood

    My experience with Taste of Chicago is:

    800,000 people
    90 + degrees F
    4 places to wash your hands
    High risk of food poisoning
    Mobs of S S teen gang banger rob and beat patrons
    Chicago media covers up everything

    Survivors vow to move out of Chicago and become Republicans.

  • I've only gone twice; once by myself and once with a friend, both occasions back in the early 90's. Unimpressed....besides, I loathe crowds and waiting in line.

    Chicago's next great park? Hardly
    On a warm afternoon in May, a pair of geese and their gaggle of goslings waddle single file over broken pavement and shaggy patches of weeds on their journey to the edge of the Chicago River. Elsewhere, red-winged blackbirds chirp their nasally songs while yellow butterflies flutter over wildflowers peeking through piles of rubble.
