As I headed out onto the street, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. There were a smattering of people all over the place. Columbia College also had an event tonight called Manifest, separate from Looptopia, and several of those students appeared to migrate north to join these festivities.
I did make it to the Chicago Cultural Center — where I’m blogging from now — and they’ve begun to let people back inside, although you have to take a round-about route to get here. On the first floor there’s several tables set up where people are playing chess. On the third floor, I took Janelle’s advice and checked out the sitar performance. Very soothing. I think I’ll hang out here for awhile.
