Time Out Chicago turns ten years old this week, which has us feeling nostalgic. So much has changed over the last decade, as we grew from YouTube-less, iPhone-less, Twitter-less, Facebook-less people into smartphone addicts constantly checking our social media feeds. Jay Cutler was college bro, Derrick Rose had working knees, the Blackhawks were not on television and nobody knew who Justin Bieber was. What a time. But as much as we have gained since 2005, we have also lost a great deal. Here is an Oscars-esque montage of those Chicago things we miss the most.
