I’m pretty close to finalizing the schedule for my next cross country trip. And much as I’d love to travel without agenda, stopping spontaneously along the way to explore a beautiful landscape or an intriguing byway, I have needed to fix a schedule so that my friends and family can keep their schedules clear when I pass through their towns.
I have been able to set the first of the dinners along the way for Chicago two weeks from today, Wednesday, May 19. I’m working with a reader to find a place in the Halsted Street Area. (Please let me know if you have any suggestions.) I have also invited the guys from Hillbuzz. Drop me an e-mail to RSVP for the dinner or suggest locations.
In addition to Chicago, I have scheduled dinners for New York (Sunday May 23), Washington, DC (between May 26 and 29), Atlanta (Wednesday, June 2), Boston (Wednesday, June 9) and Brattleboro, Vermont (Sunday, June 13). Since I’ll also be staying in Raleigh, Charlotte, Charlottesville, Nashville, Cincinnati and St. Louis, I’m open to setting up gatherings there as well.
