SPRING BROKE: Robbed Tourists Seek Cheap Entertainment

It looks like one of the victims of this morning’s robbery near Illinois Masonic Medical Center has taken to the Internet to collect suggestions for free entertainment to enjoy during his spring break stop-over in Lake View.

I’m in your fair city on Spring Break with a buddy from college and last night, while walking to the house we’re staying at, our hosts and we got mugged. No violence or anything, we just tossed the mugger our wallets and avoided any possible danger. Still, it put a damper on our spirits last night. Me and my buddy, and our hosts, lost our debit cards, cash, driver’s licenses, transit cards, and the rest of our wallets’ contents. 

So what can we do? We’re in the DePaul University/Lincoln Park/Diversey Brown Line Stop area. We’re just in town for the day and still want to enjoy ourselves.

 What’s free (or cheap, one of us managed to keep our debit card)? What’s close?

What’s fun? ETC
