DrupalCon is in full swing so the time for sightseeing is gone. Although there's a convention related activity happening for almost every waking moment last night and tonight I blew off the organized conference activities to do some things I wanted to do in Chicago.
Being a pizza fan I just couldn't leave Chicago without trying deep dish pizza. My partners in gastronomy were Dee Ann, who's covering the conference CMS Wire, and a work colleague. We found one of the recommended places and gave it a try. I never thought I'd suffer from a cheese overdose, but I did on Tuesday. It was tasty, but not a style I see myself craving that often. I don't even want to know how many calories it was.
Tonight was a show at Chicago Second City. I am forever thankful for my colleague thinking of it. It was awesome A-Game comedy. We were right in front of the stage and somewhat in harms way, as it turned out. I became part of the show for a brief moment when one of the actors kissed me on the head as he exited the stage. Now there's a unique Chicago memory!
Tomorrow is my last day in Chicago, and sadly it will be all conference and no play time. I haven't been to that many American cities, but Chicago has become my favourite. I could even see myself living here. I really hope I get a chance to come back one summer.
