'Bama's Chi-Town

And no, I don't mean Ala-Bama. I got lucky and happened to travel for work to Chicago the week of the election and I was there the night of Obama's rally/acceptance speech/victory party/drunken people fest in Grant Park. It was amazing to have the opportunity to be there. Now for some pics.

Bikes lining the fence around Grant Park:

One of the many big screens:

"The Hottest New t-shirt Design"

Looking from Grant Park down Jackson St. across Michigan Ave.:

"Rivets"
I also got lucky enough to hang with some high school friends, Lanny and Adam, which was great. Not to mention seeing Andy (I want that pic of us, please). And, while I was sitting down to lunch at Giordano's at the Prudential Tower, none other than Scott W. and his fam walked in. They were driving a natural gas GMC Jimmy home from New York (how cool is that?!) and happened to be eating at the same place in Chicago that I was, small world? yep.

Hey, BTW, let me know the info on your tenant and I'll give them a call to swing by and do the air filter for you.

That would have been fun to have you there babe, since you were the die hard 'Bama fan anyway, eh?
