Oprah's Block Party
Oprah wakes the neighbors.
Sometimes your neighbors wake you up with loud music or barking dogs. But the people who live across the street from Harpo Studios recently received a most unusual wake-up call!

"Good morning, neighbors. Could you please come out to the balcony?" Oprah announced through a bullhorn as she stood on a cherry picker. "Good morning, I'm Oprah. I'm your neighbor across the street. And because it's spring—you know it takes us a long time to get spring in Chicago—I wanted to do a nice thing for my neighbors. So in the next few days, I've called an expert in to do your balconies!"
