This is a window facing North at the Geno's East restaurant and pizzeria in Chicago. Geno's East is one of the city's most famous purveyors of Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. If you've been there before, you'll know that the restaurant encourages patrons to write or carve anything they want into the tables, walls, windows and everywhere. What results is a colorful tableaux of slang, doodles, love notes, "was here's" and a few swear words. The restaurant moved to this new location only a couple of years ago, and it is amazing how the walls are just about completely covered with writing already.
