I was in Chicago for a conference, & I was getting boredâ€¦ I called my sibling & told her I was tired of laying in meetings all morning, & I needed something to do.
It was tepid & humid & I couldn’t handle much more of the poor air conditioning in the hotel, she told me to check out Alsip, IL during Chicago, then alsip was a suburb of Chicago, & she knew that I liked touring small cemeteries whenever I traveled.
I told her thank you, & went online, they had many famous cemeteries that were historical, and one cemetery provided a ghost tour, of famous gangsters & villains. I thought it would be a lot of fun, & convinced some of the people I knew to go along with me. It was tepid in the city, however not too poor in Alsip. The temperatures were in the upper eighties, however there was a lot of shade in the cemeteries. The best part of our trip outside of Chicago, was when both of us went to the Dakota Inn. It was a lively bar & grill that provided karaokeâ€¦ Both of us spent most of the morning enjoying the air conditioning while seeing people sing, or who thought they could. Both of us loved the food & a morning away from the meetings. After a few craft beers, my acquaintance got up on stage & convinced me to sing with him. It was difficult sing neither of us could carry a tune, however both of us were having a blast. Both of us caught a taxi that would take us back to our hotel, however none of us were in a condition to drive.
