|Chicago's first permanent resident - Jean Baptiste Point du Sable|
Chicago, with all of its imperfections, remains one of my favorite cities - urban (founded by a black man), diverse (though highly segregated), dense, eco-minded, delicious and always poppin'. So it is no surprise that this weekend, it will be hosting the Green Festival and celebrating World Fair Trade Day! I would looooove to attend, but have been out of town two out of the last four weekends - including a college visit to Chicago with my son. Hopefully one of you will go and will take pics for me.
