One of the downsides of my aunt’s otherwise fantastic gold coast neighborhood in downtown Chicago, the only downside actually, is that it is often hard to find a parking spot. So after a six hour drive from Iowa we can spend another hour driving around and around the same blocks trying to find a spot. Even with overnight parking restricted to cars that show a residents guest pass, the spots can be scarce. But not at 5 pm on a Friday, apparently…tonight there was one spot after another available, I am guessing because it was just before the 6 pm bewitching hour when only cars with passes can park. Good to know….
