In the "odd couple" category these days are Chicago's own Reckless Records and...Toyota? That's right, on Thursday and Friday April 15 and 16, between noon and 7 p.m., the Toyota Corporation and Reckless are teaming up. During those hours, if you come in to Reckless' Broadway store (at 3157 N. Broadway) and test-drive a Toyota Scion, they will give you a gift certificate for $10 to use at Reckless (if you can't drive, a "professional" driver will take you around the block). This may sound strange, but it seems that Toyota has a little Scion tour planned for April, and Chicago's one of the stops.
