Parking is the new Devil

I love a lot of things about Chicago. Parking is NOT one of them. Street parking, metered parking, lot parking, whathaveyou. They all blow. If I could live my life without a car, I would. But no one has invented teleporters yet (I’m working as fast as I can), so I am stuck with the big hunk of metal.

On rare occasion, you can find some loopholes in the evil web of city parking. I had to go down to Columbia today for a meeting today, and had to commute from way up in Roger’s Park. Taking the train would have taken up at least an hour, whereas Lake Shore Drive could get me there in 15. So, logically, forget about the train.

One of the secrets that most Columbia students keep to themselves is the parking garage just north of the 624 S. Wabash campus building. $6 parking! Indoor Garage! Heaven!

However, there is one drawback… It isn’t the tightest ship in the history of time, and they did accidently bring me the wrong car once. A much nicer one than my own to boot. So take it with a grain of salt.

Any other secret squirrel parking garages you know of?

    Yeah, right. I’m not giving up my secret spots *that* easy.
