Monday Morning Mirth

Now that Chicago has become such a HOT tourist destination everybody is offering generous travel stop hype…

from Men’s Health magazine: “Look for where State and Rush Streets intersect to form a triangle (nicknamed the “Viagra Triangle” because of the head-turners seen there). Best viewing area: the outdoor patio at the Tavern on Rush.”

Overheard: “It doesn’t have that Viagra feeling,” she said. “They call this area the `Viagra Triangle’ don’t they?”

Ashley was talking about the granddaddy bars of the Rush Street area, places like The Lodge and Mother’s, spots that are often a haven for, um, the older set–men and women still trying to hang on to their youth.”

Under 40? Enjoy a cocktail called the “Little Blue Pill” @Elm Street Liquors and do some People Watchin’ People Watchin’ People yourself…

    How do you find about this stuff? Monica and I walk by there all the time on our way to Betty’s. Whodathunkit?

    Just finished your Ribby Shell! It was very quick knitting and loved the way you decreased and finished the edges, too. I’m going to make another!

    Having “partied” on Rush as a newbie to Chicago, I totally agree that yarn shopping is a gigantic improvement over that scene.

    Gibson’s, kitty corner from Tavern on Rush, is one of my favorite places for great food, beverage, service, & loads of people watching. There’s usually a crowd at the bar and a parade of passersby on the sidewalk. But now I have to check out Elm Street Liquors. You’re driving me to drink.
