This week's cover story | How to improve the Pride Parade
Here's what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
Don't get us wrong—we love the Pride Parade. But just like a significant other who has been in your life for a while, there are certain irritants that will crop up. Like the unbearable sound of his molars chewing on ice cubes, or the way he says prolly instead of probably. But I digress. The parade is no different: It's a wonderful event, but there are a number of ways we'd improve it—19 to be exact. Some of our suggestions are admittedly ridiculous (convincing cops to don short shorts), but others are so crazy they just might work (getting corporations to sponsor LGBT orgs' floats). And to add to the fun, we suggest where to eat, drink and get crazy along the new route, which now extends into Uptown and eliminates the vexing bottlenecking of the previous route.
