Stopover in Chicago

Talk about belated post. On my way to a conference this past March, I stopped over in Chicago to spend some quality time with family and friends. One of my last afternoons in town, I went downtown, ran some errands, and wandered around before heading over to Chase Auditorium Theater for a taping of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me (now becoming an annual spring break event). 🙂
