Rightfully Named the Windy City
Work has been a whirlwind the last month! We had two of our bigger clients with an event and launch on the same day. After months of planning, our event was ready to go and I was off to Chicago for a quick business trip with a my boss and another co-worker.
When I say a quick business trip.. I should also note that of the 48 hours we were there we probably slept 8 hours and worked most of the others! It was a fast-paced, but very successful trip.
We took off from working straight all day from the office around 8 and after our flight was delayed, ended up getting out of New York around 11. Luckily, Chicago is only a 2 hour flight and one time zone away so that bought us an extra hour on our way there.
By the time we drove from the airport and to our hotel we finally got to bed around 2:30 a.m. of which, we had a 6 a.m. wake-up call for day 1 of our trip. Like I said, the trip really was a whirlwind, one that didn’t include much sleep.. but I still managed to snap some photos of the TAGIE awards dinner and ChiTAG Toy Fair. In the short 48 hours I did get to squeeze in two things from my bucket list though… Chicago deep-dish pizza and a Chicago hotdog. Yum!
