Push for star[edit]

Is this article missing anything other than a map? It certainly seems like one of the best itineraries on the site to me. I think could whip up an map pretty quickly for this one too. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 01:50, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

Thanks! The only other thing holding it back is that it makes a couple of references to the article for the Near West Side, specifically sending readers there for Little Italy or Greektown, and the restaurant listings for those two places are pretty weak. That shouldn't take long to fix, though. (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 07:54, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

Star nomination[edit]

You'll never guess which city this itinerary covers. This is the most heavily touristed part of the city. The itinerary includes a marvelously detailed street map by Peter, and of the three districts it references (Chicago/Near North, Chicago/Loop, Chicago/Near West Side), one is a Star and two are Guides. What say you? (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 01:50, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

  • Support. I suppose this superb itinerary (supplied by Marc) will not soon superannuate nor see its supremacy superseded or otherwise become supplanted by superior star-noms. So let us not superimpose superfluous supplications for supplementals, lest they suppress our support of star status for this splendid, superlative piece. I'll stop now. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 03:06, 1 November 2007 (EDT)
  • Support. I says the same support for said supreme article. Such superlative skyscraping structures! (WT-en) PerryPlanet 13:13, 1 November 2007 (EDT)
  • Support, but would it have been possible to stop sooner? :-) -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 22:23, 2 November 2007 (EDT)
  • Support. Well written and sounds like it gives a good quick snapshot of what the city is about... we need more itineraries like this for other cities... and as far as I'm concerned any article that references Adventures in Babysitting is a shoe-in for star status – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 18:18, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Interestingly enough, there is only one other article to reference this 80's classic, and it is indeed already a star... Conspiracy afoot? --(WT-en) Peter Talk 04:10, 4 November 2007 (EST)
  • Support. Another fine article by the Dynamic Duo. (WT-en) 2old 15:24, 7 November 2007 (EST)
Last call on this one... (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 17:47, 15 November 2007 (EST)
