Quote of the day: a tough spot for the owner of Wicker Park's Filter

“This is a duplicitous situation where I’m not going to look good either way. If I say that I allowed to be sold out, I look like a sell out, I look like a neighborhood sell out and the big bank came in and gave me a bunch of money, and that’s not really true. It’s partially true, I am receiving money to leave, but it’s the buyout of my lease that it basically amounts to.”

– Jeff Linnane, owner of the Wicker Park coffee shop Filter, quoted in the Columbia Chronicle on the decision to close Filter to make way for a branch of Bank of America
