Hyde Park Just Ain't The Same For Gangsters...

WTF South Side?? Dixie Kitchen--gone. Dr. Wax--Audi Five (after this week.) What's next? The Pancake House? It's a damn shame to see brother taking his Johnny-cakes at that Calypso spot. And my waitress was slow as hell.

On a side-note, Puerto-Ricans and blacks around these parts don't seem to get down like the Puerto-Ricans and blacks in New York. Maybe the space thing is the issue. The blacks and Puerto-Ricans didn't have much of a choice back home--there just wasn't nowhere to go. But there's so much space here. None of that "peace, my brother" shit going around.

I'm hitting Macarthur's tomorrow. I did get some don't posters and an MOP record from Dr. Wax. Posters were only five bucks. I'm talking classic joints--John Coltrane, Ali standing over Liston and, uhm, The Matrix.
