Only in Chicago

Got a lot of stuff done this weekend - work stuff, book stuff, home stuff. But also packed in some cool fun. Saw a top '80s Polish band singing their biggest hits (in Polish) with their new lead singer, the third-place finisher from Polish Idol 4.

Also saw, and walked through, some incredible art. The Luminarium at the Redmoon theater event/happening/festival.

I love art you can go inside of.

And that's blue.

And big art. The bigger the better.

Been wanting to see The Eye for a while now.

Also saw a Talking Heads cover band and a group of Mennonites singing Christian hymns under the El. And enjoyed some lakeside fun and sun.

It's one thing to live in a city with a huge variety of one-of-a-kind options -- it's another thing to actually take advantage of them. I feel good when I actually do the stuff that makes living here such a unique experience.
