I was wondering,

Is anyone interested in having a few glasses of champaign on lower Lakeshore Drive this Saturday evening then catching a beer and burger at the Billy Goat?

It would be a nice way to celebrate the start of construction. It will also be a nice way to have a mini-forum meet and talk about Chicago's renaissance and future skyline in person.

Anyone up for this, say between 6:30pm and 7?

I'd love to - BUT - I have to work.



Give me a couple of weeks' notice and I could do it.
