Sorry for the lapse in posting! I had a 3 day conference in Chicago--the Chicago MidWinter Dental Meeting, it was a great time and I learned a lot =)
It wasn't always classes and exhibit floor though (30,000 attendees and over 600 exhibition booths!). We had a couple of very nice meals out, the Hyatt Regency is a lovely place to lay your head at night and one of my co-workers picked a show for us to see at the Apollo Theater on Friday night. She wanted to see Million Dollar Quartet, a show based on the recordings of Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash one day at the Sun Records recording studio.
The show was just wonderful and they told us on the way out that the show was essentially "born" at the Apollo and the original cast took it to Broadway where the actor portraying Jerry Lee won a Tony award. Of course, we told my co-worker that she set the bar pretty high if we try to repeat an experience next year!!!!
