Man I can't tell you all how happy this makes me. Chicago's historic Uptown Theatre is going to be preserved. $75M price tag but it looks like it's actually happening. They intend to get started this fall and expect the project to take 2 years.

Long story short. The place opened in 1925 as a movie palace.

In the 1970's it turned into a music venue. The Dead, Prince, Springsteen all played there. It's been closed, vandalized and neglected since 1981, save for a few movie/music video shoots.

Just look at this place. Would love to see D/T there in a few years.

That’s fantastic. I love seeing beautiful, historic buildings like that get the respect they deserve. That’s a gorgeous room.

Since his death, I’ve been binge watching Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. I’d seen a few episodes before his death, but started watching a few since his death, and now I can’t stop.

The reason I’m posting this is I’m coming to the realization that Bourdain was a sociological genius. Almost a modern day Thoreau under a different medium.

I’m floored by everything the man thought and said. He lived on a different plane that the vast majority of the rest of Americans.

Did you happen to see this article that came out right around the time of Anthonys death:

I’d never seen that, but it doesn’t surprise me at all. Thanks for sharing.
