Field Notes In Action · Field Trip:

The Grand (Ave.) Tour

Recent FIELD NOTES convert Pete Ruksakiati carefully documented his pilgrimage to our Midwestern Office “Local Will-Call Window” last week. Pete seemed disappointed to learn that our “Local Will-Call Window” was constructed for one photo then promptly disassembled, (though we do still have a “Will-Call Pile On A Desk”) but he had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see our storeroom, and our other storeroom, and our packing room, and our third storeroom, and see the Chicago skyline from our luxurious suites.

We can’t promise we’ll always have time to show visitors around, and we always suspect people will be disappointed when they see what goes on here (remember when Bart Simpson visited the Mad Magazine office?). But guests rarely seem disappointed, and it’s a nice break from our routine (when we have a few minutes to spare). Meeting folks who are excited about what we do… well… it gets us excited all over again! As always, thanks for the support.
