Lincoln Square Lanes Gutted by a Fire Two Years Shy of 100th Anniversary

Lincoln Square Lanes Gutted by a Fire Two Years Shy of 100th Anniversary
After writing a blog last night regarding Kanye West’s expecting and annoying antics, I started getting ready for bed.  It was a typical late night Chicago with loud people outside my window, a homeless lady screaming obscenities from the corner and sirens. But something was different.  There were tons of sirens and they seemed to... Read more »

How to be a Better Neighbor in an Old Chicago Building

How to be a Better Neighbor in an Old Chicago Building
To my new upstairs neighbor, I loathe the noise you make day in, and most of all, night out.  You make me want to leave Chicago and never return. I know I asked for it by moving into a 100-year-old building with no soundproofing once so ever but out of the dozens of neighbors I... Read more »

That’s Steven F’n Tyler! : Aerosmith at the World ( Tinley Park's First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre )
That’s Steven F’n Tyler and that’s Joe F’n Perry were pretty much the lines of the night. Traffic was bad on the way. A few accidents and a burning semi followed by a gas spill (I hope everyone is okay) delayed our arrival at the World. Yes- It’s still The World to me. I don’t... Read more »
