Have the twelve days of Pilsen changed?

by Joe Zekas on 12/21/12

In the Christmas spirit, we offer you the final stanza of an old standard. Click here to play the tune.

On the twelfth day of Pilsen
My true love sent to me
Twelve trees a-growing
Eleven more cops patrolling
Ten cars not parking
Nine trucks a-plowing
Eight speed humps slowing
Seven dogs not barking
Six trashmen lifting
Five handcuffed Kings
Four new hubcaps
Three graffiti blasters
Two Pink Line passes
And a Starbucks grand opening!

What’s on your Pilsen wish list?

NOTE: We included a version in Spanish when we first ran this, 6 years ago.
