After a brief wait out front we were joined by my brother Greg and his wife Joyce and the two of us spent a pleasurable two hours touring this incredible creative space.
Greg and Joyce left to drive home to the suburbs and Susie and I strolled up Michigan Avenue to the river before returning to pick up our car. We, too, eventually made our way out to the western suburbs and had dinner with G & J at a Mexican restaurant in Woodstock. A grand time and a wonderful birthday to be sure.
