So I’ve you been living under a rock for the past few weeks and haven’t noticed the post apocalyptic look of our downtown Chicago streets. Michael Bay and his team have been filming for Transformers 3 and tonight is the final night of shooting. They’re going out with a bang, so why not take your special lady friend down to check it out and cap the evening off with the Navy Pier fireworks display.
