Sally and I will be going up to Chicago next weekend. Getting there in time to go to the openning of Wired’s Nextfest on Thursday out on Navy Pier. Going to see some Frank Lloyd Wright homes and buildings. Visiting the Art Institute, etc. We’ll be staying at the Talbott Hotel on Delaware.
We’re open to suggestions for places to see, places to get a meal and things to do.
