I headed to the Loop this evening with the intention of seeing The Lunchbox at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Somehow i didn't expect it to be too crowded since it was a 6:00 show and the movie has been there for several days already. But the odds were not ever in my favor, and the last ticket was purchased by the person directly ahead of me in line. Although i was disappointed, it's hard to stay unhappy for very long in Chicago, especially at this time of year. And so i consoled myself with a little street theater, inhaling that distinctly Chicago aroma of Garrett's popcorn and bus fumes while watching a Tina Turner impersonator perform outside the Chicago Theatre.
