Have you missed the memorable sculpture in Millennium Park known as "Cloud Gate"? Well, Sunday is your lucky day; the city is finally taking the tent off the Bean this weekend, after spending the past few months sanding off the seams from the surface. You should be able to see the Chicago skyline in one smooth reflection, which you will of course have to take a picture of and post to Flickr.
