Hey Tumblr people in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, I need your help!
If you see a car like this (‘97-00’ Mercedes C-Class C220, C230 or C280) with a smashed up front right (passenger side) corner with broken headlight glass, please please please grab the license plate number and message me with it! Partial plate or even the location where you saw it would help.
Long story short, someone driving a car like this destroyed my car that was parked on Fullerton in Logan at about 2:45 this morning. They didn’t leave a note but they did leave some broken headlight glass and a portion of a fender liner.

I had to go to the office to grab something and the M turned out to be this “holiday train”. it’s loud in an old train way and the inside is all red and green and the ads are from the 50s or 60s when it was only sensible to put a few colors in a print ad. all of the people who stumbled upon the train unintentionally must have been about as excited to ride it as those who sought it out, because everyone on the train was pretty excited.

I read my book and got off at the usual stop, but enjoyed the ride especially much

The MTA holiday train is slightly less festive than the CTA holiday train.

Decal on a Cincinnati Car Company-made 4000-series train car; this model in particular served the CTA from 1923-1973. The CTA brought this car out this past weekend at an event to celebrate 100 years of service to the Linden stop in Wilmette, IL.
Edit: Also, what is that beautiful font? Futura?

I was poking around Google Maps the other day, hovered over this park and this description came up.

Seth of TheMidwestlye and I were both quoted in today’s Red Eye about the trend towards men dressing up and look who made the cover! Thanks to the folks over at the Red Eye for using my pic and thanks to Ryan Plett for snapping the pic of the paper.

The article is online here. The funny thing is that I was also contacted to contribute to this article but when the reporter found out that I did not have a “better half”, I was dropped as a source.

Stan mf-ing Mikita played his entire 22-season professional career with the Chicago Blackhawks and played himself in Wayne’s World (1992). Nuff said.

This photo, just two months after it opened, shows the Belmont station on what is now the O’Hare Branch of the Blue Line, with two Douglas-Milwaukee “B” trains berthed in the station. The station opened on February 1, 1970 as part of a new subway to connect the Logan Square ‘L’ (opened in 1895) to the new expressway median line in the Kennedy, terminating at Jefferson Park. The line would later be further extended to Chicago-O’Hare International Airport (ORD). (via CTA Flickr)

The L station I use most often turned 42 today.
