so! chicago is officially booked as of about 20 minutes ago. we're getting in at 11am on saturday morning, then have until noon on monday to galavant around the city as we wish before the conference starts and i have to buckle down and concentrate on 800-ish powerpoint presos.
what i need from you: suggestions of where to eat, what to do, where to go, what to see, you name it.
and! if you're local to chicago, also tell me when you're free, so i can come and talk animatedly at you and scare you off with my excessive hand/arm flailing while telling stories. (sounds fun, no? i suggest doing this someplace with alcohol, for your sake.)
