Chicago Expo

Back from Chicago after a succesfull three-day show at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo. Was totally exhausted by Sunday, but had a terrific time.

it was a weekend of great food: our fine friend "The Chicago Batman" from the city came out and grabbed us and took us downtown for some great Italian. If you're ever in Oak Park, check out Cucina Paradiso.

On the way home, my ride and I stopped and had dinner in Madison with another mutual friend at the Inca Heritage. Terrific food.
