Lunch at Labriola

A little upscale for a Tuesday, but co-workers were celebrating the completion of an annual category handbook, something that's very tedious and time consuming. Had lunch at this mid- to upscale eatery.

Chicago Brahaus for Rob's Birthday

Went to one of Chicago's more established German eateries for a friend's birthday. Here we are with his many friends. And I had raw meat and duck!

Me and Indie Film Director Patrick Wang

Had dinner with the nicest indie director named Patrick Wang. His film, "In the Family," debuted at the Gene Siskel Center here this past weekend. It was a wonderful, emotional film about two gay dads and what happens when one dies in a tragic accident. A must-see!

Refined Visit

Out in Midland-Odessa, Texas, where Friday Night Lights was conceived, to visit with an oil company and its convenience stores. Had a pump rig in my hotel's backyard and at lunch at a refinery!
