I'm in Chicago again!

I arrived a few hours ago in Chicago to teach at the Adobe MAX conference this week. My friends Mark and Jen and their two kids Jessica and Matthew picked me up at the airport and we had a really nice Greek meal at the Parthenon where one of their signature dishes is a hot appetizer called Saganaki, which is a mild kaseri cheese flamed in brandy. You can see it in the first photo.

After that, we drove to one of the beaches on Michigan Lake. It's a beautiful day here, 80 degrees, a nice strong breeze and it was a joy just to sit outside and enjoy the weather. I couldn't help noticing, though, that here in Chicago anything goes, as you can see in the second photo of the man who decided to take a swim but didn't have a bathing suit. No problem! Underwear kind of looks like a white bathing suit, right?

The cheese looks great, but it must cost a small fortune.

Nope, only about $4.00 if I remember right! Of course, if you eat enough of these, you will pay big bucks to unclog your arteries later!
