A quiet sunset on the farm, precursor to a wild night in Chicago Town
We showed up in Chicago at around 1am and magically found parking on the street right near the main strip in Lincoln Park. The following day we prepared for an event at the Apple Store, explored the area, fixed our tandem bike, and went to the lake. Chicago is the most beautiful city we have been to thus far. It’s clean, friendly, and being on the lake feels like you are on the shores of a fresh water ocean.
We eventually made our way over to the Apple Store to do our presentation. That was a bust. It was a packed store but we were allotted a set of computer speakers to try and project to the whole store. So, nobody could hear us, but it did lead to us meeting some really cool people, so of course it was worth it.
Back on our way out of Boston, we had picked up a cordially inebriated and spectacularly entertaining duo, one of which (Margi) was from Chicago, and gave them a cab ride to the next bar. Though we barely knew them, we decided to give Margi a call when we got to Chicago and she put us on the fast track to meeting some new people. She threw a party for us at a bar in town and we drove our bus over. Naturally, our parking luck continued and we found a spot right in front of the bar. As the night progressed, people started moving to another bar. Tyler and I (Corey), lagged behind and met a group on the street, including Analise and Carrie, and forced them to sign our guest book. After talking briefly we decided it was time to move on to the next spot. We graciously accepted a ride from Analise and Carrie in their 1966 Plymouth Belvedere, which was decorated in an eye-catching “Just Married” sign while dragging some cans and a boot. We Traveled the rest of the night in this magic wagon, blasting wild thing. We met up with the rest of the group, and all drove in the beast to the beach. It was a memorable night.
