Don't laugh. So, it was kind of a long Saturday night/Sunday morning for me. I locked my brown Surly somewhere in UK Village, but don't know where-probably near Chicago and Oakley. I live in a totally different neighborhood and cabbed it home as I had way to much to drink. If anyone sees a Brown Surly Cross Check-like most Surly's the decals are essentially worn off-please let me know. Thanks.

I hope  you had 2 ulocks on it. My milwaukee was parked at walton an oakley for and hour and a half  two weeks ago and someone stole my seat and post and my rear wheel and attempted to steal my bars

Cop pals tell me that the price of metal recycling is such that thieves will take ANYTHING that's metal.  So, besides a seat leash, we now need to weld our damn bars and racks to the frame. . .

I would hurry. Don't expect to see it again if you have to leave it out one more night.

OH ADAM...You dummy, lol i'm not laughing, we've all done it @ least once.

I had a late lunch yesterday @ The LockDown on corner of Cortez/Western. I noticed quite a few bikes locked up outside of the Empty Bottle and i could swear there was a Brown Surly. Wouldn't hurt to go look right? Good Luck!

Thanks for the advice. Its weird. I know I locked it somewhere-I have a NYC lock-because my keys were in my pannier. I left the pannier-I am sure its long gone-but when I got home I had my keys. Therefore, I took my keys out of the pannier at some point that night.

It would help to know what bars/clubs/art showings/whatever you were at.  Do you not remember even that much?  lol...

Think intensely about it for short bursts of time and when you're exhausted stop, and go do something else.  Repeat.  Keep calm, you'll find it.  Good luck.  

I was trying to get to the Clipper from the Hideout Block Party. Realizing the Clipper was probably closed, I tried to find my friends apartment in UK Village. Its actually kind of scary to think I was riding my bike.

Dang-- rode past Chicago and Oakley twice yesterday. I have a vague smidgen of a memory of seeing a bike like this, but I'd say the margin of error there is about 99%.

I do hope you remember at least a little something about Saturday night, because Wlco's performance was top-notch (and I wouldn't even really say I'm much of a fan.)

It was good! The drinking was after the show. Well, most of it.

So if someone was to spot it, and didn't have a smart phone to post here, what would they do?

I like in Ukrainian Village, post a pic up of your bike. It'll help me id your bike easier than verbally

The story of that night is rife with rumours and speculation of the late night emulations of "Racketeer"-style dance numbers playfully performed with the gutters gnomes. Dude, they could be half way back to the shire by now!!!
