I learned something new tonight about getting around the South Loop

It was like I couldn't stop myself. After hearing the Lyric Opera lecture about Handel's opera Rinaldo tonight (at the Civic Opera House for the second time--I heard it last Monday, too), I was meandering home when I decided for the first time in my personal South Loop history to just keep going south on Wells. I was implacably curious to see if there was any way to get from "sea level" on the fairly recently-paved Wells Street south of Polk, on into the Roosevelt Collection--in order to get up onto the Roosevelt Road bridge to get home. I saw lots of people walking dogs--but I also saw a lot of chain link and doors without doorknobs on the outside. So I was a little doubtful.
