    Chicago. Gotta get there next summer.


    “I bought 11 bikinis for the summer alone,” said Jamie Coates, 23, a model and Playpen regular who took time from comparing breast sizes with a friend to talk to a reporter. She’s been going to clubs since she was 18. “Been there, done that. This is something new, something real.”

    Now that's great detail that makes an already-fun story all the more worthwhile.

    Well, this is as good a place as any ...

    Remedial Theatre presents:

    COCKDIAN'S Othello

    Act I, Scene 3

    (inside an Italian villa in early evening)

    (SHAQUILLIAN, Assius and Nicknoltius burst inside. LeBrono delivers a jarring headbutt to Assius, and both go down.)

    NICKNOLTIUS: Hey, chocolate spread!

    (He grabs the spread and heads for the bathroom.)

    KOBEAGO: Well, looks like it's just you and me, fatboy.

    (Shaquillian moves forward for the kill. From behind, Desduhmoana smacks him in the head with a frying pan.)

    SHAQUILLIAN (smiling): You'll have to do better than that.

    KOBEAGO: Damn, bitch! Is that all you got.

    DESDUHMOANA: Well, no.

    (She steps in front of Shaquillian and sprays him full in the eyes with Mace.)


    (Kobeago delivers a full, doublenutbreaking kick to Shaquillian's genitals. He collapses.)

    DESDUHMOANA: Do you really think I'd be here around you without protection?

    KOBEAGO: Shut your face, bitch. Now go take care of that Mr. Cates in the bathroom whilst I drag the Mora's worthless ass out of here.

    (Kobeago slides LeBrono face first out of the villa and into a Lamborghini. They head toward town.)

    LeBRONO (waking up): Where we goin', man?

    KOBEAGO: If you can't kick one cracker's ass without passing out, we're gonna need some more homeboys helpin' us out.

    i read that story this morning and thought to myself and it seemed like the typical new york times story making something that's happening outside new york into a big deal just because it's sort of unique because it's not happening in new york.

    people are tying their boats together and drinking a lot. and chicks are half naked. woo! i think people do this every summer everywhere in the country where there's water, boats and booze.

    When you can combine city life with the water, you've got a potent combo.

    Leo, what other major cities the scene that was described in Chicago?

    I thought this was quite the quote

    Mr. Lombard said the police “kind of turn a blind eye” to some of what goes on in the Playpen, including overfilled boats and recreational drug use, “because, well, this is Chicago.”

    In the next to last photo of the slide show, one young lass is sporting the surest possible sign of sorostitute-hood: The open pack of Marlboro lights jammed into the front of the hot pants.

    Dear god, how do people not realize that they're cliches?

    I read three grafs, and had nothing to do w/ Chicago been included, I would have thought they were talking about Lake of the Ozarks.
    Granted, Busch Light would have been in the first graf.

    Every major lake in America has a party cove. Chicago just might be the only place with a party cove in city limits.

    It's the only dignified way...
