Chicago 2016 Prepares For a Crucial Week

The Tribune has an article today talking about preparations and the schedule for next weeks important visit from 16 IOC officials to evaluate Chicago's bid. There is going to be a ton of news on the Olympics and like usual we will do our best to weed through the stories and pick out what's important or interesting to the South Loop.

According to the article one of the major selling points will be our lakefront as well as the South Loop's museum campus:
Chicago organizers hope to dazzle IOC evaluators with the city's storied lakefront. Chicago 2016 board member Bob Berland noted that visitors to the Games could walk from sporting events to museums along the lakefront, "just steps away. ... That's unprecedented."
