Hi Mitch,

Welcome to Travellerspoint! Hmm... Mexican is nationality/race while Jewish is religion. So what's the other two halves?

Cheers,
Hien

Hi Goretex and welcome.

I have to agree with Hien -how can you be half Jewish / half Mexican?

Anyway . . .

Enjoy the site.

Michael

Welcome to the forum, Mitch. I am sure you'll enjoy your stay. Is the anatomically correct moose still in the city? I don't know what building that was that it was in front of, but it was near a bridge...

ISA HELP!!!!!

Anyway, welcome again.

Welcome to TP Mitch!!

The moose that Pardus is referring to is right next to the Tribune building on Michigan Ave. in the plaza just to the south. It's a stainlees steel, lifesize, anatomically correct (read: it's swinging a pair) moose. No, he's not insane...it really is there.

Try not to be dissuaded by questioning of some of our other members....they are just inquisitive little beavers. They really are friendly and I'm pretty sure they don't bite...

My wife and I are 2 hours west of you, but I used to live down in Printers Row some years back. In fact, we were just downtown again this past weekend. Next time we'll wave..
