I'll be in Chicago through next Tuesday, attending a conference and various related events. It's a work trip, but I was pretty successful in carving out some interesting things to do in the evenings. Tonight, the stop was the Art Institute of Chicago, the home of my all-time favorite painting (and many other great ones. Tomorrow night, I'll be seeing the Drive-By Truckers in concert with a friend and colleague, and on Saturday night, three of us who are here for the trip will be seeing Samuel Beckett's "Endgame" at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, starring (among others) William Petersen.
