World's Largest and NOISIEST Block Party
Oh GAWD! Here it comes again - the World's Largest Block party at Old St. Pat's in the West Loop. I can't help finding it ironic that a Catholic church would sponsor such an event - given all the drinking and debauchery that takes place. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is the noise! The attendees consider it music, and it's usually of the Rock/House variety that the 20-30 somethings seem to enjoy. You know - the kind of stuff they play at Lalapalooza. But to me, it's just noise, enhanced by the gigantic speakers they use to blast it to the entire neighborhood. It's worse for me because my apartment overlooks the parking lot where the stage is located. And the speakers are pointed almost directly toward my building. YIKES! I can hear it even with the windows tightly closed! This annual event boasts that some 80 couples met each other and eventually married because of this event. Maybe that's why the church sponsors it. Not to mention the proceeds they receive from ticket and drink sales from the thousands who attend each year, hoping to find their future wife/husband over the din of what passes for music.
