State Street crowded with bargain seekers.

It's Maxwell Street Days time again. Here's a quick look at this year's shopping extravaganza:

State Street

Here's last year's much more in-depth coverage of the event. I usually try to avoid the crowds, but today I needed to get to a café, where I sat with an espresso. Ever notice how the baristas of today can scarcely believe anyone would order just an espresso? A single espresso? I got out my small stack of exams from my summer class and, looking up once in a while to watch the people pass by, I graded question 1.

When I was a kid, I used to go to the original Maxwell Street. What a trip! Seedy, interesting, cheap.
