Looking for an excuse to start the Memorial Day weekend a little early on Friday? Head down to Millennium Park, where the newly polished Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, will be partially unveiled. The end of its cocoon-like tent will be removed so we can finally see and "interact" with about 13 feet of its fresh mirror finish. A plastic screen on the remaining tent will allow a view of ongoing work.
