Around the South Loop

Getting Ready for 10-10-10
What a beautiful day Wednesday turned out to be! It felt like mid-June rather than early-October. The city is getting ready for this Sunday's Chicago Marathon. Barriers and risers have started to go up on Columbus Dr. Temporary tents and trailers are also in place east of Columbus Dr.

Light, Cameras, Action!
The TV crew for the new Fox TV show Ride-Along were filming in the South Loop by the Adler Planetarium. The notice below was displayed at the head of the caravan of movie trailers. For more information on the new series, Ride-Along starring Jennifer Beals, check out the Ride-Along Facebook page. To see how big the crew was, check yesterdays blog post.

Smile, you may be on TV.

The bike path along the lake by the Planetarium saw plenty of use. Boaters also took advantage of the beautiful, clear day.

The bike path was in use on Wednesday.

Twelfth Ave. Beach was empty, but the water lapping the shore was a pleasant and relaxing scene. Check out the video below to see just how beautiful it was.
