How to win friends and influence clubbing this summer? Buy a boat. That's the Chicago Scene way, at least. And don't worry about the government, either: none other than police officer Daniel Lombard tells the Sunday Times the CPD and Coast Guard "'kind of turn a blind eye' to some of what goes on in the Playpen, including overfilled boats and recreational drug use, 'because, well, this is Chicago.'" Party on, Dan!
