We Wait

Acceptance letters for Chicago Public high schools mail on February 19th.

And it actually feels good to just wait. In other words, to not have to do something. No more weekend open houses, no more interviews, essays, applications, and math problems! (see below).

You can get a glimpse into my world of late, if you so choose. Here's a little math problem that was handed out to all the students (and parents) at one of the last high school open houses we attended:

"What is the least possible positive difference between two three-digit numbers which together use the digits 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9?"

Good luck! I will post the answer.

Manor West Nightclub said...

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
