notes from a journey through Chicago's cultural landscape...

My Photo
Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States

...this is not about me, this is about my city - a living document of Chicago's art's scene, a memoir of concerts I've been to & performances I've seen, a jaded scribe's small sampling of the many offerings of this vibrant cosmopolitan city that I'm lucky enough to call home. I work the city as the city works me, all of us connected in varying degrees, here i pay tribute to our evolving soundtrack, I plug praiseworthy endeavors & try to give a little back... Together with my peers we paint this crossroads with every shade we can find, in your mediums & mine, i run with deep house deviants & wrinkled blues cats, youngun' b-boy crews & quirky circus brats, snobby eclectic DJs & electric painters laboring on projected displays, film makers armed with mini-DVs & picky chefs sculpting tricky masterpieces out of vegan grease... i kick it with slam poets & theater geeks, powerbook producers & fashionista freaks, photoshop fellowships & choreographer hips, while jazz cats blow digital epics through pursed bebop lips... i'm at the nexus of the next wave of Chicago sound - this is where i share the stories of all the beauty I've found...

Cuban Love

Had dinner with some friends from out of town at Cafe Laguardia in Bucktown, which features fantastic Cuban food, live Latin jazz, beautiful people, & a great vibe all around. We had some great Mango Mojitos & Capirinhas while slinking down into some comfortable couches, then had an outrageously tasty meal in the dining area while listening to the music of Angel de Cuba in the Solar System.... If you're in Bucktown, this spot is HOT and well worth a visit...
