Cubs Convention Sidebar (Now With Photos!)

I'm sure Al will be posting plenty of info in the main feature well over the next few days. I thought I'd offer a slightly different view here in a sidebar feature. I'll post as often as I can over the weekend. Hopefully this may provide a bit of warmth for those of you who aren't able to join the convention.

A brief look from this morning: the calm before the storm. Empty hallways. Pretty quiet. The hotel staff has the look of impending dread. Hushed conversations, lots of pointing and head nodding.

Starbucks Grande coffee: $3

I didn't partake, but the breakfast and lunch buffet at the restaurant across from the registration desk runs $16.50.

2 eggs, bacon, toast: $15

More later...
