Parks & Rec in Chicago

Today, Parks & Rec was in town and it was honestly a little surreal to see two of the NBC comedy’s brightest stars Aziz Ansari & Chris Pratt in one iconic Chicago location after another. (Aziz did a pop-up standup show last night and Pratt threw out the first pitch and sang the 7th inning stretch at the Cubs game.) I was tracking the activity all day, since Parks is probably my favorite show on TV right now and everyone in the cast is superb, and you know, since it’s Chicago so here’s the lowdown on where Tom Haverford & Andy Dwyer were galavanting.

Shoutout to our longtime friend in the Chicago media biz, Luis Gomez of the Chicago Tribune on most of these below and Aziz himself for that great skyline lead photo…

The Ansaris and the Carters at Yeezus last weekend. When my mom asked for this photo, @Beyonce said “It would be an honor.” Amazing. Happy Bey Day. Also shout out to my parents who I love very much.
