Twinkly night and tourists

So many people come into Chicago for shopping. I am supposed to be at Daley Plaza in five minutes, but with all this traffic it’ll be a miracle if I make it on time. There are HORDES of people snaking through on Michigan Avenue. The buses are not packed, but they’re slowed down by disrespectful cabs. If you’d just let us by…

Actually, I would love to see the city shut down Michigan Ave from Thanksgiving through Christmas to car traffic — buses and cabs only — and then it would be a little safer and easier to get through. The rest of the folks can use the outer drive to get downtown or the east/west streets to get to their hotels. That’s my 2¢ at least.
