Against my better judgement, I'm spending the $25 and piloting my geriatric Honda to the Windy City to see the best in coverture and confection. Will anyone else be attending?

I was warned that it was pretty much a holiday gift pageant, and the chocolate pros were somewhat lacking. I spent the money on chocolate instead.

I went to the trade show and the public show. It was pretty disorganized and many of the staff were really rude. This was the first one so I would be willing to give it another try a few years from now after they work out some kinks. There were a lot of vendors missing due to Sandy, so it was kind of small. If it was not for the trade show side, it would have been a waste of time.
