squeeeeeeky floors at the art museum

squeeeeeeky floors at the art museum

Another note on the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. They recently installed new floors this winter on the second floor. I’m not sure what material they are made out of, but it’s kind of a plastic rubbery material. When you walk on it, you shoes squeak SUPER LOUD. It’s soo loud that it almost […]

I went to Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art today. It’s only free on tuesdays and today being thursday, you’re supposed to pay. When you pay, you get a little metal button to wear. It’s not a pin, but a clip-on button, so they can fall off kinda easily. When walking up to the MCA, I […]

Kicked out of the Amoco Building

Kicked out of the Amoco Building

Today i got kicked out of the Amoco Building in Chicago. I wasn’t really inside the building when i got kicked out. I was standing right next to it taking pictures. The Amoco Building (or AON Center as it’s now called) is like the 10th tallest building in the world. So I thought it would […]

Another reason why the Tribune Company is superior over the Sun-Times. (both are competiting newspapers in chicago). This afternoon I got some Subway for lunch and walked over by the Sun-Times building to eat, because it was close by. Upon arrival at the plaza outside the Sun-Times building, it was difficult to find a place […]

Wrigley Field expansion plans

Wrigley Field expansion plans

I live in Wrigleyville the neighborhood that is home to Wrigley Field of the Chicago Cubs. Personally, i hate when the community puts up such a b*** about how bad the traffic is around Wrigley Field during game days. Like duh. Of course it’s gonna be bad. (personally, I don’t think it’s THAT bad). The […]

I just got back from my ritual trip sunday meal over at the Burrito Palace (3507 N. Halsted St., Chicago). Last time I went there, the dude said to me, “chicken enchilidada to go”. And i was like, “yeah dude.” I couldn’t believe that he remembered what i order. I’m officially a regular now. Yeah! […]

CTA toy bus

CTA toy bus
