The view of Wicker Park from Myopic Books. Found a couple Norb Blei books, though not near Studs and Royko as he would have liked.

This new boardwalk and canopy walk in New Buffalo is awesome. Walking in the treetops, reminded me of the House on the Rock. Someone needs to build this alongside the road up the hill in Fish Creek, WI.

Normally you see a panorama of the skyline from here, but last night Stephen King sent in “the Mist”, blacking out all but Willis.  (at Ekhart Park)

Classic. Gotta love a place that doesn’t care about punctuation on their own sign. Not a spec of ketchup in the building. Or a seat.  (at Gene’s and Jude’s)

The old Robert “Doc” Wahl farm in #DoorCounty. A chemist, Wahl was a pioneer in baking and brewing, founding the Wahl-Henius school of fermentology in Chicago in the 1880s. Eventually housed on Fullerton, it’s estimated that roughly half the brewers in American commercial breweries were tutored by him at one point. During prohibition, his school closed and he retired to this farm to continue his brewing experiments, watching for Feds from the windows of the silo. When prohibition ended, he returned to Chicago, reopened his school, and reclaimed his place as the nation’s foremost authority on the science of brewing. #DoorCounty #Chicago #CraftBeer #Brewing #Barns #Prohibition
