Windy City Open 2013

During the last week of August we attended the Windy City Open. This year was my 6th year attending.

I had a nice time at this event. I was expecialy fun to watch Blake Kish and Pat Turk in the Country Western division. So much fun that Sophia & I joined them by adding late entries in Country Western.

Perhaps the experience will prompt Sophia to acquire a Country Western outfit :). We danced the division in our Rhythm costumes!

During our visit we got to visit theFlagship  headquarters for McDonald's, one of the largest operating McDonald's restaurants in the world. 


The building was several stories tall, with walls made entirely of glass and it was filled with Rock n' roll memorabilia



We also had time to visit our friends, Gregory Day and Natasha Issacs at Chicago Dace.



It was one of the most beautiful studios I have ever visited. The studio was just recently redesigned with a modern cafe and bar, along with sound proof sliding glass walls, luxurious bathrooms and changing rooms.



Before dancing, we met with the D'Angelo family for Italian Dinner.



The competition  itself was smaller this year, but fun.
