The Coolest Store in Chicago

Category: Chicagoland

I’m about as far from being cool as a person can be.  On chilly days I wear socks with my sandals.  I pack a sack lunch in plastic bags from the Piggly Wiggly, wear old lady underpants, and I drive an old Buick hulk.  I even like POLKA music, for pete’s sake.  (Although, to be fair, a lot of this is done to torment the nieces and nephews, driving them into eye-rolling frenzy.  It’s fun.  You ought to try it sometime.) 

But, if I were the antithesis of me, which is young, svelte, and terminally hip, I might loiter a lot at Transistor, where they sell books, vinyl records, arty photographs, reel-to-reel tape decks, and an honest-to-god theremin (which itself is the antithesis of the accordian). 

Here’s a couple of cool theremin videos.

Not that I would know from cool, really.
