W2P Breaks New Ground for Printers --CagleOctober 2008
Let's put Wetzel's first year as a print salesman, 1926, in perspective. Calvin Coolidge was the U.S. president. Benito Mussolini had taken control of Italy. French painter Claude Monet and magician Harry Houdini passed away that year. Robert Goddard launched the first liquid fuel rocket. The Great Miami Hurricane rocked the Sunshine State, while in Chicago, warring factions were taking aim at Al Capone's troops.
Best wishes to you, Mr. Wetzel!
GE HOTSPOTS: So you've just wrapped up a long day of working the McCormick Place South floor during Graph Expo in Chicago. You're exhausted and those feet are telling you a sob story. Still, you've got to fight the urge to head back to the hotel and crash for the night. Here's a couple of prime suggestions to keep the blood flowing.
House of Blues. Right down on North Dearborn, the HOB usually plays host to one manufacturer's event per year. Otherwise, you can pop in and enjoy the excitement generated by house bands and DJs. The Back Porch Stage features live bands nightly at 10 p.m. Visit www.hob.com/venues/clubvenues/chicago/ to learn more.
Excalibur Club. Ontario and Dearborn. This club boasts the "city's largest dance floor," and it features the most amazing house dancers. If that's not your thing, you can enjoy live entertainment, dine and play pool or arcade games. If all else fails, kick back in the lounge, indulge in your favorite refreshment and give those dogs a breather. See www.excalibur-
chicago.com for more info.
And it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway...take a cab or walk. No drinking and driving. PI
