I’ve walked along this stretch a few times, many years ago. But this was back when there weren’t any steps up to the trail… and you had to find a low spot (like the one near Paulina and Bloomingdale Ave) and bring your own steps.
The apartment is located right on Milwaukee, right near where Myopic is located. I remember saying that this apartment is the kind of place I would have loved to have had, when I first moved here 16 years ago… if I had only gotten my shit together.
Xoco, which I didn’t realize was situated at the old location for holiday (where I once got to use a breathalyzer). It was a tequila bar after that, and maybe a few other things in the following years. It’s been a long time since I’ve been back to the neighborhood.
Saturday evening, Liz and I headed over to Rob and Gretchen’s place to celebrate Rob’s birthday. On arriving, we found the place completely decked out – Valentine’s day decorations aplenty, with a lot of red lighting.
