Going to Chicago Jazz Festival!
And it's just going to be cheezy touristy fun. My wife, my sister and her husband are all coming. I'm going to do all the kind of stuff that we here in DC make fun of tourists for doing; maybe I can just stop in the middle of the sidewalk for no reason, that's a classic. Seriously, I love cities and Chicago is easily in my top five (June-August category).
Here's the itinerary, what do you all think?:
Chicago Architecture Foundation boat tour
Dinner at Pizano's Pizza
Cubs vs Giants
Jazz and drinking, so much drinking
Brunch at Atwood cafe (for the Burnham connection)
Devil in White City tour
Back to DC
Flying out to Kabul for a month or so work assignment.
When I'm heading out to Afghanistan, I like to get in my booze and pork products beforehand. Chicago seems like the right town for it.
