Everyone Knows My Name

I had a great time in Florida. My meeting didn’t start until Thursday, so I spend most of Wednesday afternoon/night at Epcot. My friend and I had Mexican food for lunch at San Angel Inn. We then walked around and checked out most of the pavilions which showcased various cultures from all over the world. We particularly liked the performance of the Dragon Legend Acrobats at the China pavilion. After that, we then headed to the rides. My favorite was Test Trak. I also liked Mission Space but would recommend that folks go on this ride long after they’ve eaten. […]

Greetings from Florida

It’s so unbecoming.

Team Bonding

Team bonding took me to the Taste of Chicago again. Went there around 2pm and I pretty much stuck to the Gourmet tent. Mostly because it was hotter than hell and the restaurant today was Morton’s Steakhouse. So I sampled the lamp chops and sipped on a few glasses on wine. After that, a few of us decided to head to someplace that offered air conditioning. So we started at the W Hotel on Adams Street however after sharing one bottle of wine, we left as it was too dark. We then headed to the other W Hotel on Lakeshore […]
