Chicago in July

Ok, so it turn out I will be in Chicago in July for the National Institute of Food Technologists annual meeting. The meeting is the 17th-20th. I may try to come a day before the conference but I am not sure if I can stay any later due to my travel funding being travel grants. They are kinda picky about people taking vacations for some reason...sheesh!

Anyway...I know I will be trying to meet up with some of the Chicago tfp'ers but it would be awesome if more people could be there as well.


So who wants to come visit the windy city with me???

I'll be here!

The 17th is a Sat and the 20th is a Tues... I'm guessing the Sat/Sun would work best for most people. How much free time will you actually have with the conference?

I will know as it gets closer. If we win our division of the College Bowl competition, we will be competing. If our abstract gets accepted there will be one day where I HAVE to be at the meeting for about 4 hours to stand next to my research poster and answer questions.

Evenings should be free no problem though.

There's a chance that I'll be in Pebble Beach that week, but it remains to be seen. I don't have schedules yet.

But if I can make a meet-up, I will.

We'll just have to give him a reason to remember his fear, then, won't we?

Depending on certain factors, I'll PROBABLY be there(but don't put me down as a "definitely" just yet.)


Anyone up for a Sox game? And a ferris wheel ride? And maybe a museum or two?

Not sure if anyone else is interested, but Lilith Fair will be stopping in Chicago on July 17th. The lineup for the night is Sarah McLachlan, Heart, Kate Nash, Vedera, Cat Power, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Meaghan Smith, La Roux, and Vita Chambers. I'd totally be down for going.

I'm in California (Pebble Beach) from 7/19-23, so hopefully that won't be too big of a problem. There's a chance that we'll go out a day early, but that's only speculative right now. The dates above are where we have to be there.

Well I'd definitely enjoy seeing Kate Nash and La Roux, the others not quite as much. I'll keep it in mind as a possibility though, perhaps wait and see what ticket prices are like.

You can interact with people at a concert And it's cool, if no one wants to go, I'll go to the Charlotte show. I'm holding out for Grace Potter and A Fine Frenzy, anyway.

If I go to this, I will be 99% Lesbian. Not that I'm complaining...I'm just letting you know that the transformation will almost be complete.
