Chicago, Chicago

I just got back from the Midwest conference in Chicago; Frequent Commenter Scott and I shared a rather palatial room on the nosebleed level—at a price significantly below the conference rate to boot. I can say that all three panels I participated in were intellectually stimulating and full of intriguing papers, the choices of food and beverage destinations by FCS were all excellent, it was great to catch up with a few Signifying Nothing groupies readers in the discipline, and Southwest Airlines did its usual quality job of shuffling my derrière from point A to point B with minimal fuss. Given my time constraints on Wednesday, I had to abandon my earlier plan of riding the train, although the CTA did get a healthy chunk of change from me while in Chicago (to/from Midway and on our gastronomic touring).

Now I just need to track down a local source for 312 and Honker’s Ale.

I’ve had a couple of the Goose Island beers before—- good stuff. They have a couple that are 9%, 11% alcohol. Talk about bang for your buck.

I was surprised it’s not in Missouri, so I guess a trip across the river is in order for ya (or, to North Dakota)...

Goose Island Beer is distributed in the following states:
New York
North Dakota
South Dakota

It was great catching up with you. Sorry I had to flake out on Friday night, but I’m still a bit blistered from the game. Fun conference all the way around.

(P.S. Go State!)


Alfie, surely you’re not suggesting that I transport alcoholic beverages across state lines? Tsk, tsk.

And you missed some serious fun on Friday. Damn solar radiation!
