Hyde Park: May 2007 Archives

We could take a stroll around Hyde Park, and I could point out landmarks like Rockefeller Chapel or Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap.

We might even stop by my favorite spot for fajitas, Mellow Yellow, just off Harper Square.

I'd also probably take you The Cove on 55th, the closest dive bar to the lake.

But if you want a better Hyde Park tour guide than I'd be -- maybe someone who lives in one of those stately Hyde Park mansions and happens to be running for president -- then I'm here to help.

Who is Cornell Drive in Hyde Park named after?

The first person to post the correct answer here wins a Sun-Times T-shirt.

Last week's winner was Elaine Soloway. She knew improv comedy was created by the Compass Players at a bar in Hyde Park.
