why did the photographer cross the street?
I was walking down Illinois Street this evening when I spotted a small crowd gathered around a black SUV that was parked in front of the AMC River East 21 movie theater.
I overheard a woman say that she saw a skinny blond in high heels. Hmmmm…that’s worth investigating. Paris Hilton, maybe? Lindsay Lohan, perhaps? Zac Efron, probably?
So, with not much else to do, I crossed the street, dodging a couple taxis along the way.
As I worked my way into the crowd, I saw Chicago’s very own Jeremy Piven patiently posing for photos with the general public.
Slightly disappointed, I raised my camera for a couple hail marys. One of the snaps synched with a camera flash and I headed on my way.
Seconds later, I looked down and saw a flash of green on the sidewalk. I quickly snagged the prize – $46 in cash.
I am starting to like Jeremy Piven a lot more.
