girl in a box, the Chicago story

One of the first stops on our trip was Chicago, where we stopped to stay with a friend of Megan's in Boy's Town. I loved Boy's Town! You've got to adore a neighborhood where the mannequins are be-decked in leather, the food is delish, and the hospitality is unrivaled. After an amazing dinner at the boys' posh apartment, we had the pleasure of visiting the nightclub they've created.

This place is superfly. If you are in Chicago, you must go. It's called Lakeview Broadcasting Company; it's on N. Halstead street. You'll know you're there when you see the boombox on the door. The bar is beautiful and way hipper than I'll ever pretend to be. One of the most notable features of the main room is this big rectangular, glassed-in box that's been installed in the wall opposite the bar.

It's only about 4 feet tall, carpeted in shag, and lined with bookshelves full of records. On the weekends, hot models hang out in this terrarium-of-sorts, doing hot model type things. Since we were there on a weekday, the box was empty and we were invited to play house.

Following is a photo essay on why I am not model material...









Thank you, Justin and Stephen, for such a fabulous night in Chicago; we could not have asked for more gracious or gorgeous hosts. It's so good to see such wonderful things happening for such wonderful people.
