Wicker Park

Don't give a photographer an iPhone. Ever since I've had my iPhone I take it out to take pictures whenever I see a good cloud. Or a good bike. Or good street art. 
In this case my friend H and I were walking down Milwaukee Ave after we grabbed some ice cream from the new hipster ice cream store (everything on Milwaukee in Wicker Park is hipster) and I had to stop for to take this photo of the clouds photo. I am sure Chicago skies don't compare to the ones in say, California. But this isn't bad, is it?

Greek Town

Greek Town is a small part of downtown Chicago with Greek restaurant after Greek restaurant.
The food I've had there was so-so but nothing beats getting to eat/drink on a terrace on a hot Chicago night - with this view:

Ok, maybe a view over the lake would beat that but I haven't found a restaurant that has to offer that yet. Any recommendations?

Wicker Park Street Art

Wicker Park is one of the newer, cool areas. One might call it the "hipster" hood. The streets are lined with hip cafes, funky t-shirt shops and expensive boutiques. And street art.

One of these two is actually in a different neighborhood - Bucktown - which is like the younger, free-spirited, granola sister of Wicker Park but is slowly turning into hipster town as well.
