Chess in the Park, Part II

“Chess is like ginger ale. No one thinks about bringing it, but people love it when someone remembers it.”
For the second year in a row, the truth of LEP’s prescient, profound, and prophetic observation has been proven true at the 4th of July celebration in Chicago’s Nichols Park. No one thought about chess, no one asked for it, but someone remembered it yesterday, and kids and adults were all over it like a cheap suit.

Please forgive the cliché; it’s a simile I enjoy too much to resist. More photos here.
