Loop Muffins and Tea

The locally owned Argo Tea in the Loop has a great location, very nice interior and has tasty vegan muffins. Read my post today on Gapers Block.

In the post, I mention the old Ronny's Steakhouse building. Here's a photo with it hiding between the Oriental Theatre and the building with the blue facade, taken in January 1999 from State and Randolph featuring the buildings that previously existed where the Art Institute dorms and Borders now sit.

PS: I'm happy to be posting again after an amazing three weeks or so in India.
