out to thirteen

went out with mario to “thirteen” in wicker park. it was alyssa’s last days in the US; she has a study abroad trip to taiwan for a year.

the place is crawling with lincoln park folks. full of frat boys and skanky women. what happened to the neighborhood? years ago, i lived a couple of blocks from the bar, and it was a nasty cool and somewhat scary. now’s it’s the new haven for yuppies. ugh.
