Got an email with the above information from the U of M Chicago Alumni Association. Mark your calendars, Brian's coming to the Windy City. After hearing about last year's event in DC I'm thrilled that Brian will be travelling west on I-94. I know we've got a big contingent of MGoBloggers in Chicago, and I look forward to meeting some of you IRL.

That date is marked in indelible pixels on my calendar.  In fact, I'm going to miss softball that evening and don't even mind.


EDIT: Aw, crap!  My wife got us tickets to the Tigers' game at the Cell that night.  i'm going to have to figure out how to get out of that.

For the east coast crowd - we'll post full info on the blog eventually, but you can save the date for the U of M Club of NYC's 5th Annual Football Kickoff Party w/ Brian and TomVH on Thursday August 15th.
