The Party That Makes Us Look Like The Jersey Shore Might Get Cancelled

It should come as no huge shock that something people look forward to every year might get cancelled due to the city's tendency to be a drill sergeant when it comes to permits. We remember you, St. Patty's parade. You, too, 4th of July fireworks. Now, the city is extending the long arm of the law over Chicago Scene's annual boat party. For the first time in the event's 10-year tenure, the city wants permits filed before the revelry atop 600 boats can begin. As of this moment, the party is off, but organizers have a plan—move the fiesta to Hammond, Indiana. While they're at it, let's all go there. We bet they don't have those damned pay-to-park boxes, either. (Chicagoist)
