I had almost the same experience, except I got in for the afternoon slot. It was zero hassle when I actually went over there, in and out in like 10 min. they have a very streamlined operation.

my (northside) coworkers complain about it constantly and said it has gotten worse. I live on the south side though so the redline works just fine for me

i haven't noticed a huge difference but it's just a matter of time with the red-purple corridor modernization starting up

still better than the blue line

that's what I’m worried about, afaik nothings started thus far that impacts peak hours but I think the plan is to shut down lawrence-bryn mawr and just run shuttles that dump everyone at wilson. hopefully some of those folks will just take the lakeshore bus instead

The thing is red line trains come like every 2 minutes in rush hour, and they have higher capacity than blue. Back when I lived off Bryn Mawr I could see the next train behind the one at the station. Heading in lots of people also transfer off/on at Belmont which depending on timing can free up some room. Trying to get in at lake to go home was fucking savagery but even then on the worst days you could easily just walk a few blocks down to Monroe and get a seat (by walking down the abandoned platform of the Washington stop...little pro tip)

It all boils down to when youre catching your train tho. Literally 15 minutes either direction in the morning rush can be completely different

1) love the RPM branding they’ve put on the red purple project. Just too cute

2) get up early and beat the rush, and I get on at Harrison on the way home. My experience on the red line is thusly chill

3) thanks for reading

i never take transit anymore because it would take me over an hour to get to my job in the south side :( and it's 15 min to drive since i live right next to the highway.

i miss transit commuting a lot actually.

aren't the other dispensaries much less in demand than d33? d33 seems to be the most well-known and popular spot in the city

yeah, look up other dispensary's instagram accounts, they will probably let you know what they have available for rec
D33, MoCa and Sunnyside are probably going to take awhile to settle down and get some actual backstock

I'm sad because it was clear this was the election to bring in sweeping grassroots change, the electorate was desperate for it. But everything got fucked. You had Luis Gutierrez suddenly announce he wouldn't run again, so Chuy got in the US Rep race because no one really wanted to challenge rahm. then rahm waits til a month before the filing deadline to say he won't run again, sending the big names scrambling. But then of course all the big names got tangled in the ed burke nuclear fallout, leaving lightfoot as the only real option for a clean break from the machine.
