Getting out of Oak Park, IL this summer for fun

Now that sun has been out for while I plan to get out more this year. More downtown and south suburb travelling. Events, getting some sun blah blah, I would look to see what events are happening in the village but the logistical nightmare of parking and travelling through is just depressing. The time and amount of effort it takes one might as well go downtown, downtown Chicago that is. I do not want to be what I complain about and basically be a bitch. But… I rather not be at event in Oak Park, IL dealing with the pretentious village idiots or their spawn.

Unfortunately, we all get to see them everyday as we leave our homes to go to work, the grocery store, etc., and basically that is enough for me. There are a couple of things going on, but who cares? I rather go the Taste of Chicago this year or just hit the beach. I know that seems sassy, and its not a hatred but more like disgust. I know there is something else to go be reading is fundamental. So, I found an article called: “The 55 best things to do in Chicago right now” on TimeOut Chicago.

I believe that this article will help anyone in the area find something to do, that is not in Oak Park, IL. And the list of things to do is great for those who interests vary. In this case instead of complaining, bitch and moan I found a solution to my boredom and disgust of Oak Park, IL. Now I know there might be some maggots who upset me but I think that percentage wise per person of being annoying as hell I think that winner of pissing me off will go to Oak Park hands down every time.

This is the article discussing the 55 things to do in Chicago:

Time Out Chicago article speaks about our behavior in Chicago

There is this hilarious article about people from the suburbs visiting Chicago by TimeOut Chicago. The funny thing is, how true the content or the barbs are when it comes to the behaviors exhibited by those (from the burbs) who roam around downtown. I have had seen people actually take pictures with their iPad downtown only to find out that they are from either Schaumburg or even Oak Park, IL. And I am just thinking “they just want to be jacked up in the middle of downtown for that shit?”…

The stopping of a group in the middle of the sidewalk? Seen that and you can tell these people who are “pushed” out the way by angry and fast walking Chicagoans are from out of town. The real out of towners usually wear something from out of state to signify that they are from out of town and proud of it or they are wearing daisy duke shorts in the middle of March, so you know they are really from out of town!

All to find the way to the bean or Navy Pier and I cannot tell you the last time I have been to either in the last decade. Which is of course as the article states is an out of “stater’s” destination. I suggest reading it over for a quick laugh if you are from Chicago and if you are from somewhere like Oak Park, IL maybe you can learn something from it so that you stand out less as you navigate in the real world.

This is the article I mentioned above:
