Oak Park, IL related: No Lollapalooza for me

I did not go down to Lollapalooza sorry, I am not interested in being around a bunch of underage alcoholics, acting a fool. I rather see the music acts in a concert hall, where such things as alcohol consumption by related individuals can be controlled.

I, in fact, was able to go to bed bath and beyond to do some candle shopping (hide that smoke baby!), at Bed Bath and Beyond and then I went to WalMart to go food shopping. But the difference was, the traffic was flowing, the heightened anxiety that usually accompanies traveling through Oak Park, Il. Therefore, I recommend traveling through Oak Park, Il whenever Lollapalooza is occurring you will be able to properly stop and smell the roses finally in Oak Park, Il.

Oak Park, IL blog might be AWOL (Kentucky) because of a Beer and Cheese Festival

I am going to hanging out with a friend of my mine down in the Lexington, KY area you know summer celebrations (because school is done) and a cousin of mine (Carissa) is graduating from the Eastern Kentucky University. I will miss the actually the graduation ceremony  but I will be down there to help her pack up her stuff (she is a last-minute type person) before but I will be in the area to celebrate too.

She told me of there is a fair about 30 minutes away that we can hang out and party at (I hope). It is a local fest in Winchester, called the “Beer and Cheese Festival”, so I have been doing some research on Facebook and Googling directions and places to go like restaurants, bars stuff like that. I will probably be buying her graduation gift down there as well if I can get away from her for a sec.

Since she is a huge geek and reader I found a place called Unicorn Music and Books that it is the middle of the fest, I do not want to make it obvious either. Plus, the book selection at Walmart, Walgreens, and Sears are not places with a huge book selection neither does it has a comic book selection and collectibles so I will drag her there during the fest. She is a light drinker so it will be easy to manipulate her into going and looking through that bookstore while I shop for her graduation gift.

This means I have to get some food in her stomach (besides cheese: gives her gas) so probably hitting D J’s Bar & Grill, the steak on a bun sounds interesting. So, I have four stops around that area to amuse myself and hopeful my cuz so I may have a gap in posts around that time. Unless I can pull off a miracle.

Oak Park, IL related: Meijer leaving the area

Now a closing that I am upset about is the Meijer in Melrose Park, just because I do not like to go to the Walmart in Forest Park, Il (it’s fucking ghetto) or the Jewel on Roosevelt (it’s expensive) this store was a welcomed gem in this oasis of pretentiousness. Pete’s is alright but very expensive as well and the aisles are small to the point I am breathing or tasting everyone else’s breath.

The stores that are left do not step up their game and have not felt the reason to do so. Now that Meijer is leaving the area even though it is two suburbs over is was a fantastic alternative to these sloppy expensive stores in Oak Park, Il and in the nearby suburbs. God I will miss their well-lit parking lots that had clientele I was not worried would assault me in some way after shopping for groceries. That is alright I got mace, I will wear my sneakers so that I am ready for giving out some ghetto hoe beat downs.

Here is the article spelling out that bad fucking news:
