This is just a little note to say that as we sit here listening to the L roll by outside the window, sipping a huge latte and totally enjoying our hosts' wide screen Apple computer AND shaking off a bit of a hangover, that AT Chicago really blew us away last night. What a big and vibrant community Janel and Heather already have here, after only 2 months!
In short: @85 people, until close to 10pm, a stunningly arrayed and hosted DWR (thanks Paola and Alberto!), lots of drinking and talking and then dinner with Heather, Joshua, Janel, Allard and Audrey until after midnight at Avec. Blogging is a remarkable thing.
Thanks so much to everyone for coming out. We will link to the photographs of the evening as soon as Heather puts them up.
