We Are The Hoppers, My Friend

Here’s our April 30 AP field trip in a nutshell:

1. Buy your Metra tickets. $6.00 round trip for students with ID. If you’re smart, and if you can, you’ll do this before Tuesday morning. Lines are typically longer when folks are buying monthly passes.

2. Gimme $4.50 to load the CTA cards for our two rides on the El, if you haven’t already.

2a. This leaves you $89.50 for lunch. mostly-about-the-benjamins

3. Bring a pencil with you, in order to take notes at each exhibit.

4. We take a short bus ride on a short bus from the huge school to the depot.

5. We… y’know… commute.

7. We descend from the County Building to the bowels of the Loop, surfacing at the Cultural Center.

8. The Gage Gallery of Roosevelt University presents pictures from Guantanamo:

9. The Brown Line transports us to River North.

UPDATE! The Wells Street bridge is out again for reconstruction of the second half, so we’ll take the Red Line (the State Street subway) instead.

10. We hike to the Newberry Library to see the annual show by the Chicago Calligraphy Collective:

11. Zigzag through the Rush Street area, in broad daylight, to the Loyola University Museum of Art for Lewis Kostiner’s exhibit “Choosing Fatherhood-A Photographic Journey.” http://www.luc.edu/luma/exhibitions/upcomingexhibitions/lewiskostinerchoosingfatherhoodaphotographicjourney/

12. The Water Tower, the actual Water Tower, has “Animal Kingdom,” a show of posters for bands and concerts:

13. Munch on luncheon at one of 6 or 7 quality joints along Chicago Avenue.

14. Rapid Transit back to the Loop, and sprint to the train.

UPDATE: The return will either be the Red Line again (and hike to Ogilvie Center) or just hoofin’ it from River North. I suspect we’ll prefer the former. 

15. Work on your notes, so that you may be quoted on this here blawwg.

16. Borington. Walk back to school. Or not.
