Saturday in the park, a man selling ice cream

I’ve been doing some writing in Time Out Chicago recently. This week, I contributed to an article in TOC‘s ice cream issue, now on-sale at local newsstands, but also available on the Interwebs. The piece is here (last item), complete with a stunningly handsome picture of yours truly. I walked around Rogers Park, Edgewater and Andersonville selling paletas and other ice cream treats. How did I do? Well, you’ll just have to click on the link.

Also in this week’s issue, we have a Web-only feature that lets our readers choose their favorite ice cream treat from the places we reviewed in this issue. Definitely worth checking out because it’s very pretty. Keep up with the results on the TOC blog.

And finally, I wrote the third item for this article on the history of Chicago’s parks. If you haven’t had a chance to check out these nifty TOC Google maps detailing everything there is to do in the city parks, or the many attractions of Milwaukee, you really should.

I do hope you’ve made the TOC blog a regular part of your day. I write occasional posts there, and you also get insightful pieces like this one on the whole “crush on Obama” phenomenon from our sex and relationships writer, Debby Herbenick.

Finally – and this is completely free of all self-promotion – I’ve got my money on Wes Craven in this fight.

    I am very proud that you sold more ice cream than a cute girl, although I am very upset with your poor business math!

    I would pay good money for that, even if it would be a short fight.TB, if I had it to do over again, I’d have taken more Dora The Explorer bars. I was in mostly Latino neighborhoods so those things sold like…Dora The Explorer bars in a predominantly Latino neighborhood.
