chi-town, day 1 recap
posted by soe 12:11 pm

Just a quick note — those people in line for ALA’s free internet look grumpy!

Yesterday I spent getting myself settled — both at the booth and here in town. I took a couple extra L trains than necessary to get to the convention center, but I made it here safe and sound.

I have explored the Magnificent Mile to the best of my abilities — a little too touristy and upscale for my tastes. But I did manage to stop by Lo-Cal Locale for a veggie dog before they’re shut down to make way for condos and by Giordano’s for stuffed pizza.

Tonight I head to Grant Park for the Taste of Chicago and a classical music concert. Tomorrow, maybe Navy Pier.

Keep your fingers crossed for a little more time to write — and a more thoughtful post later today or tomorrow.
