That's my fault, I cut off part of the legend when cropping it out of the PDF. It should be Lake Shore Drive.

Also reading about singing Down by the Riverside and This Little Light of Mine as part of a faith-based social justice protest gave me flashbacks.

Me too! I actually had to speak during a public group prayer one time in NOLA. Fortunately the some leaders of the Worker Justice, Inc. had schooled me on their experiences in hiding godless atheism.

They are removing public bike racks for next weekend. I feel like that's more about targeting protesters than it is about public safety.

If they want to remove things that might interfere with public safety, they should burn the big white statute/public urinal in front of my building.

so a friend of mine is pretty heavily involved with occupy chicago's media team, and he keeps retweeting people who are harassing them via twitter, and it's like reading the comments on a trib article but worse

Ugh. Rahm has basically painted all potential protesters as terrorists so it's no surprise people are being jerks.

Although, that may be less of a clusterfuck than other events.

Did you know the Map Room opens at 6:30 AM every weekday?

Jeff, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 12:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wow, I'm getting annoyed by news headlines this morning. Not even the articles - just the headlines (especially this one - Political Memo: For Some, Same-Sex Marriage Is Not Politics, It’s Personal - NO SHIT). I think I should call out of work and go to the Map Room.

Also this one, which is blessedly behind the Sun Times's new paywall - "The real black marriage problem."

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 12:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

Black marriage should be legal IMO.

I hope the article is accompanied by a guy with a cat-who-ate-the-canary smile and a woman with her arms crossed.

I have an ear infection.

I had to go on FB to confirm that it was really your birthday bc I couldn't remember and I feared Carl was laying a trap.

Happy birthday n/a! Hope you get to do something fun.

Ear infections are awful carl, hang in there.

Oh hey Nick, I had a dream about you last night. You had somehow experienced The Afterlife (without dying) but were annoyed that it was basically just like Life On Earth. Happy birthday.

Did you know the Map Room opens at 6:30 AM every weekday?

I knew that they were a coffee bar in the A.M., but do they serve beer, too? I don't know if y'all have been to K's Dugout (at Foster and ... Winchester, maybe?), but they used to open around that time as well since they catered to a lot of third-shift workers who wanted a drink when they got off work.

Carrie Antwoord (jaymc), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

Why does K's Dugout sound so familiar?? Did we go there for your b-day drinks one time, John?

Rossi's on State St. opens at 7:00, or did years ago when I went there at 8:00 a.m. to pick up a jacket I left there the night before. There were 2 or 3 crusty looking men in there drinking beer at that time.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Quite possibly, Jesse. I haven't been there in years, but I drank there occasionally when I lived in the area. Kr still gives me shit b/c one time when we were there, I cavalierly told a middle-aged working-class dude that he should take a job he'd been offered on an oil rig in the Persian Gulf. I was all "You'll regret it if you don't!" -- which is the kind of thing 20-something college grads use as justifications for their decisions, but I obv. didn't know shit about his life.

Carrie Antwoord (jaymc), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

We had someone's birthday afterparty there years ago, maybe that's it? K_lsey was there.

former personal denim advisor to the mayor, (La Lechera), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

If the circumstances were right I think I could drink beer @ 6:30 am.

if you don't start in the morning you can't drink all day

Steve Youngblood (dan m), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 15:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

K's Dugout was a New Years Eve site in '05, if you were there then with me and Jaymc, Je55e.

Kay's Nappy Dugout

^^^was considering posting something like this but decided it was in poor taste

Steve Youngblood (dan m), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 16:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

Now I'm trying to keep from posting another joke about Kay's Nappy Dugout being a poor taste, but that would also be in poor taste.

Carrie Antwoord (jaymc), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

JVC, I was trying to make a joke. It was a dumb joke. I hope you didn't think I was being rude to you.

I like the idea of the mayor riding his bike around behind John's apartment, pausing to stare up at his kitchen windows.
