2008-04 Chicago Galleries

This was a training trip. I was attending the WebSphere Portal Administration 1 & 2 classes at a Jack Morton training facility at 1 N State Street (in the heart of down-town).

I stayed at the Palmer House Hilton. The first night, I went to the Navy Pier. It was virtually empty! One night I went out to the "White Palace Grill" - a restaurant that I learned about from the Food TV program, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives". It turned out to be good food and the walk down there got me to explore part of Chicago that I had not seen before like Union Station. And then one night a few guys from the class went to the House of Blues to watch/listen to Victor Wooten - an awesome bass player.
