You gotta get up pretty early

Have you ever played "I Have Never"? It's a game where you say something that you have never done, and everyone who has done this thing must drink. So I guess it's a drinking game.

With recent Cubs and Sox games, though, I've started saying, "Wow, I had never seen that before." That's because, in the past couple of weeks, a few out-of-the-ordinary things have happened at the old ballpark.

Anyway, the reason I bring up "I Have Never" is because I recently saw something I had never seen before. In fact, I'm willing to bet no one I know has seen this. On Sunday I went for a very early morning bike ride, and eventually I found myself at Millennium Park, and there I was, all alone with the Bean. I have no real opinions about the billion-dollar park or any of the artwork there, but I have to say, it was pretty cool to be the ONLY human bean wandering around the world's largest reflective (and now completely smooth) kidney bean.

I don't say this to show off or anything. I just say this to remind others (and especially myself) that there are plenty of cool things to check out and experience here in the shitty of Chicago. Sometimes you just gotta get your ass up out of bed.

Anyway, here it is. Cool beans, huh?

Darn you!!!
You're right though, and since you bring it up here, how about a party at my place, maybe even this weekend? I do have that one roadtrip grill that served me so well tailgating last summer. The only ones invited are people that have commented on this blog. But there is one party rule: Absolutely no talking about blogging.

I've always had a soft spot, somewhere inside (perhaps close to the kidneys) for that dang Chicago bean... Notice that Anish Kapoor finally gave in to Chicago's frank-n-beans crowd and officially called his sculpture "the bean" earlier this month?

Speaking of frank-n-beans, will this gathering be a bbq?
