PRETTY PICTURES: With Blood Trails And Broken Windows, Boystown Fun Keeps Getting Funner

@DavidSpearman on Twitter
Nothing says "fun" in Boystown like a trail of bloody footprints.

Several neighborhood residents called 911 after sunrise Monday morning to report a trail of blood droops and thick, bloody footprints along a sidewalk in the 3200 block of Halsted Street.

It's not clear exactly what happened to the person who sprung an apparently sizable leak from their circulatory system, but CWB reader David Spearman Tweeted early Sunday that the bloodletter had emerged from the newly-reopened Manhole nightclub near Halsted and Belmont around 1AM.

Spearman was kind enough to snap a couple of pix before the Manhole crew emerged with a mop to wipe up a few of the more gruesome prints.

Beatnix Breakout

It’s a Boystown tradition. You know warm weather is approaching when someone takes it upon themselves to bust out windows at Beatnix costume shop.

Yet another board-up job at Beatnix costume shop in Boystown on Monday.
Monday morning brought the first shattering of glass at Beatnix this year.

Police responded to the store at Roscoe and Halsted around 1AM after an employee reported the damage. Board-up crews had already sealed up the window frame by sunrise.

In 2014, the first windows were broken at Beatnix on February 23.

In 2013, Beatnix windows were broken out during a major street fight at Roscoe and Halsted during Pride Fest weekend.

  1. That bar is going to be nothing but problems. And I am sure sex acts will be going on inside too. Us gays should be so proud.

  2. I noticed less voluminous bloody footprints "walking" west on Melrose from Broadway -- A pair of abandoned flip-flops started the trail -- Pretty gross!

    1. Could have cut his foot on a broken poppers bottle in Steamworks as one of their yelp reviewers did.

  5. I figure if I can get off without getting knifed, it's been a good night.

    1. This comment (about getting off but not getting knifed) made me laugh and then sigh. Too true!
