Chicago, Aug. 22:
We made the four-hour drive up to Chicago yesterday from the wedding in central Indiana. It was a beautiful day, and we arrived by early afternoon to spend Monday night with my older brother in Evanston on Chicago's north shore.

Tuesday morning I went to my brother's Rotary Club meeting, and then we visited the Chicago Botanic Gardens with my brother and his wife. After that we hit a laundromat to ensure that we had enough clean clothes to get us through the five days of SPJ meetings and convention. By 4 p.m., we checked in to the Hyatt Regency Chicago at 151 E. Wacker Drive. They gave us the VIP treatment and set us up in a luxurious, two-room suite.

For dinner, we almost ordered room service, but in the end we hiked a couple of blocks down Wacker Drive to McCormick and Schmick's for seafood. I had fresh Arctic Char from Alaska, a first for me. If I had to describe it, I'd say it is a cross between trout and salmon. Delicious.
