Nothing like a trip to the old neighborhood to do one well, I visited some of the old spots, but since I had to drive back to Oak Park, IL I could not drink! It was great hitting up crisp, molly’s, sultans market then flying through the DePaul university campus (area). And I realized that it took less time travelling from Lakeview to Damen than it takes me to get from Ridgeland to Oak Park ave on lake street. I left liberated traveling at 25 mph and actually getting somewhere!
Something most people in Oak Park, Il will never understand unless they travel outside of the village. I overheard one coworker stating that she only drives from River Forest to her home, condo in Oak Park, Il. Yeah, I know! I felt sorry for her…. But not really lol.
She doesn’t know what she is missing and I wonder if there are others like her. It is very sad to have such a limited view of the world and to limit one’s experiences to one part of the world like that. But that is cool I rather be running rampant through Lakeview etc. than stick my head in the sand and drink Oak Park, il’s Kool aid any day.
