Oprah takes over Chicago
We walked downtown this afternoon to see how it was going and to take some pictures. The crowds trying to be part of the show were huge and lively. They were especially animated when TV cameras were in sight.
The sidewalks on both sides of Michigan Ave. between Wacker and Ohio didn't seem like they were filled during lunchtime with shoppers. In fact, on both the east and west sides, shoppers seemed nonexistent. We even noticed some store merchants outside their stores watching Oprah's 24th season kick off extravaganza.
