TIP: Never Pour Concrete In Wrigleyville On Saturday. Ever.


Saturday afternoon, optimistic construction workers poured yards of fresh concrete in the Wrigleyville bar district along Clark Street.

Then, as they prepared to leave for the day, they flagged down a cop and asked the officer to keep an eye on the concrete so no one would step it.

Of course, that's not the police department's job. And, it turns out, someone stepping in it was the least of the construction crew's problems.

  1. Nobody stepped on it that's for sure. How did they manage to write on some parts of fresh concrete without stepping on it?

  4. Gotta literally sit next to concrete to keep people away, even on residential streets. Not surprised the bar owners didn't monitor the situation, as we know they could care less what happens outside their doors. Now they get to look at dick drawings every day. Appropriate!

    1. It is not directly outside a bar, it is a new entry for the Power construction site at Clark & Addison. They will probably buff it out or lay some asphalt over it tomorrow. So if you want to see this latest artistic masterpiece, today maybe your last chance.

    2. Why does everyone think it's the bar owners responsibility to monitor the Naperville 22 yr olds when they leave the bar? That's simply not how life works.
