Matt and I continue to take advantage of Chicago and the many things the city has to offer. On a tour to promote his new book, Tom Brokaw made a stop at the Harold Washington Library tonight and we were lucky enough (tickets were sold out, but we grabbed seats a few weeks ago!) to have the chance to listen to his talk. Last year we saw Anthony Bourdain, when he came to town.
Back home from Baltimore after our national conference. We had our Board of Directors dinner on the Inner Harbor. Had fun meeting lots of new people and seeing months of work come to fruition, but happy to be back home too!
Not sure if he’s the leader (and he’s hard to see - taken around 9:20 a.m. when we heard the first loud cheers) but a view of the Chicago Marathon from our place. Too cool!
Update: Here are a few pictures from street level.
I just returned from my first visit to Austin in maybe seven or eight years. I attended a conference at the University of Texas at Austin this past Friday and Saturday with two of my colleagues, Jason Martin (on the left) and Hai Tran (on the right).
