10 Signs It's Summer in Wicker Park/Bucktown

T.R. got our Summertime in ___________ week rolling yesterday, profiling Lincoln Park with his usual wit and observation, and promptly received the wrath of reader Paul Frank for both misusing the term "Winter and Constructions" and for "being a snarky douchebag." Well Paul, you're in luck, because I'm writing the list today, and if the Lists That Actually Matter fellas were a boy band, I would be The Nice One. You're already done with T.R., The Snarky One, with just Tony and DanTello to go, who, by my estimation, proxy out to The Shy One and The Tough One respectively. I suppose that leaves TelloReal as our underhanded, fraudulent, embezzling leader Lou Pearlman... I can live with that assessment...

Anyhow Paul, if you're at all familiar with the Wicker Park/Bucktown area, I think you're going to enjoy this list. It's sweet, sincere, and nostalgic, just like me. You should be good for about a day. As for your concern that our blog "sucks," nothing I can do for you on that one bud. Maybe try Moms Who Drink and Swear. We think she's sharp.

  • Thanks for not including the pic of me peeing on that Hyundai

  • In reply to TRSlyder:

    Dude, you have no idea how hard it was not to run it. I went back and forth, but eventually decided it just wasn't the right thing to do.

  • Aw shucks. I wish you hadn't even mentioned me. I don't like attention. At least that's what Tello told me. Also, who's the ugly one?

  • Honestly? Probably me. But you'd never know it because of a visual misdirection employed by my frosted tips, sleeveless shirts and upside down and backwards visors.
