apparently as of next month the oasis cafe is moving out of weird food court back to their original location in the back of the jewelry mall. this means you'll no longer be able to enjoy your falafel and the world's most beautiful mural (photo by carson) at the same time. i just thought i should let the world know.
facts about weird food court:
- they're always playing my favorite chicago radio station over the speakers (it might be WLIT or LOVE FM or something). today they played "believe" by cher and "soak up the sun" by sheryl crow and it really improved an otherwise shitty day.
- there are a bunch of (mostly abstract) paintings by SAIC students/alumni/something hanging on the walls
- what is up with the weird lighting?
- according to james yood, it's in the earliest louis sullivan building in chicago(!)
