The Tribune asks: how well do you know the Loop? Take their quiz, then browse the comments from readers about the places they miss and what they love/hate about downtown. It's part of this week's ongoing special report on the Loop; yesterday was history, today is "curiosities" -- check back each day through Friday for another facet of the city's center.
