It was before your time: '92-'96.

I still miss the food there (Chicago, not N.U.). Watching menus be thrown at customers at Mothi Mahal on Belmont; hearing other patrons be sick in the ladies room at Ann Sather's; waiting outside (yet again) for Penny's Noodle's to open; eating giant burritos in West Town while trying to distract my brother from the mice running back and forth before the jukebox.......

Sigh.

It was a culinarily rich time in my life.

Are you a lifer, born and raised there?

Actually, that was my punkier era, so maybe we passed each other on the street in Wrigleyville at some point. I was the one in plaid tights & combat boots, with hair that was part shaved and part purple, going into Metro for a ska show or into the Annoyance Theater to catch a late-night.

I'm a lifer, all right.

And, just so I don't get modslapped for straying too far from the topic:
Yay, fashion ladies on scooters rule it!

I was the one in a green dress and weird shoes, walking really fast with a thin man wearing a goatee. There may or may not have been a big black poodle with us.

I would have been too fearful to ride a scooter in Chicago traffic, though I often walked miles to avoid entering a crowded bus.When I read about LSD closing with traffic still on it, I could not imagine the chaos. And I still can't believe that the cars towed when the snow melted did not receive unfair fines or tickets.

I wore skirts while riding my scooter.

BLASPHEMER!! that is a candid street shot from the sartorialist!!! how dare you!!!!
Naturallycurly.com...keeping it real since 1998.

Scrills, how can you tell it's photoshopped? I just assumed a shallow DoF was used. You have a very good eye if Guassian Blur was indeed used on that image.

Frau, I agree. That's a really cool shot. I like it.

I came in here to say that that lady Scrills may not know what she was talking about. While it may have been photoshopped, she now realizes that this effect could have been done with a great camera with a really low FStop/Aperure/DoF/ Depth of field setting. She she a fancy new camera and took a personal photo class and now stands corrected.

I just want to express my admiration/jealousy for this statement. pretty much my number one aspiration in life is to ride a cute red scooter around town in a sassy manner, whilst wearing a helmet with flame decals.
