I'm definitely looking forward to it. Somehow, Jamie and I have never been able to work in a normal vacation like humans are supposed to, especially if they've been together since the first Clinton Administration. I know, it sounds weird, but we've had lots of extenuating circumstances and Jamie does not travel easily. However, this year we made it a priority, and so off we go to The Windy City.

Jamie has just informed me I cannot buy us tickets to see Ministry, who is playing while we're there. Which shocks me, because I thought those dudes hung it up eons ago. No rockin' out to "Stigmata" for us, I guess. Nor is playing clips of Ministry from YouTube really winning Jamie over.
I may try to talk her into going to The Green Mill. We'll see what happens.
So if you're in the Chicagoland Area and feel like coming pretty much to the dead center of town (we're staying right across from Grant Park, I think), give me a buzz.
Really, I don't know anything about Chiacgo. I went there some as a kid, but we were mostly out in the suburbs. My ideas about Chicago are formed by:
- The Untouchables
- The Chicago Cubs
- The Chicago Bulls
- Superbowl XXV
- Ferris Bueller
- John Hughes movies
- Mr. T
- street scenes in The Dark Knight
- viewing WGN as a kid to watch cartoons
- The Blues Brothers
- I once watched "ER"
- and their history of putting their politicians in jail (in Texas we just make whatever politicians do legal)
I am perfectly aware that Chicago is a great American city, and I look forward to gawking around like the idiot tourist I shall be.
Also, I'm totally looking up the "1920's Gangsters Tour" I've heard they've got.
