Day 191: Be Chi-rish for a day
March 13, 2011 § 5 Comments
It’s a yearly St. Patrick’s Day tradition in Chicago. Motorboats spew dye into the river and then drive in circles to swirl it up while crowds of anxious onlookers stand alongside the banks.
After the parade, the Power Rangers posed for photos by the river. A couple of our more nostalgic friends insisted on forging through the crowd to get pictures. However, we made an abrupt turn around after a guy further ahead started yelling “Abort! Abort! Abort!” because a man in a suit jacket had started vomiting all over his shoes right next to the Power Rangers. You can’t see him here, but he’s about five feet to the left of the Green Ranger. Kids screamed and ran. He puked for about thirty seconds standing completely erect, then very casually walked away. It was bizarre. Even the Power Rangers bailed.
And a not-so-cool but hilariously awesome and cover-charge free bar called Paradise Cantina, which had really awkward paintings on the walls.
