Returned to Uptown, my 1st Chicago neighborhood. Lawrence Ave at Broadway getting the gentrification treatment with a complete row of al fresco dining, but overall upscaling is uneven. Got panhandled whilst getting gas (cause people buying gas must have lotsa money these days). Watermelon martinis and dinner at Marigold with the Pilgrims, part of the Last Supper series. Food was fantastic but the service was terribly slow. Andrew a lot bigger and a little wilder. I think the Pilgrims are a little mad I'm leaving Chicago before they do.
