#DENCHIDENCHI

It's been an intense few days. Den->Chi: Chi->Den, Den->Chi: Chi->Den
  1. Up early Friday to drop the girl off at school and head to the airport.
  2. Checked in at The Fairmont and grabbed some Chicago dogs before the JNF's Annual Conference began.
  3. After opening plenary and some cocktails, ended up at The Aviary for some of the coolest drinks I've ever had.
    3 drinks each + a couple of tiny bites = $400 for four of us. Totally worth it. And, somehow, I was plowed.
  4. But Chicago.
  5. Healthy brunch before heading to the airport and flying back to Denver.
  6. Had to hustle home...
  7. And get tuxed up for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation's annual Be Beautiful Be Yourself fashion show.
  8. Fun stars, inspiring night, and we ran the social media for the event.
    Global is our largest nonprofit client.
  9. Jamie Foxx was there, and Terrence Howard bid $5,000 on a glass of water.
    Also, Minka Kelly. Damn.
  10. Saw this. Tweeted about it.
    Nice, @bjnovak and @dev
  11. Home and in bed by 1am, up at six for return flight...
  12. ...to Chicago.
  13. Back to the JNF conference in time for the luncheon. Supplemented by walking to Al's for Italian Beef sandwich.
  14. Learned latest news about JNF's spectacular work in the Negev.
  15. 22-minute nap, then suited up for the gala.
    Moooor cocktails.
  16. Went out for food at 1am because the dinner was minimal.
  17. And then up for closing plenary.
    Rabbi Shmuley Boteach was fucking amazing.
  18. Last meal in Chicago was spectacular.
    Love you, Manny's. The soup was sublime.
  19. And this.
  20. And now...finally...on the Blue Line headed to the airport, and home.
  21. I am so. Fucking. Tired.
    But it was all worth it.
