Avant Les Deluge: Mansueto Library (NOW RESCHEDULED) and AIA Happy Hour - two one NO great events today

Follow-up3: Tomorrow's CAF lunchtime lecture with Ward Miller and John Vinci is also being rescheduled. Right now, I would say the safest bet is to just presume everything's been cancelled until the spring thaw.

Follow-up2: Tonight's AIA Chicago Happy Hour has been rescheduled to February 8th, tomorrow's Integrated Home Communication Systems program at AIA Chicago has been postponed.

Follow-up central. Tonight's Mansueto event as been rescheduled.  Don't go to the Cliff Dwellers tonight unless you're a cave man looking to get out of the snow:
Due to weather conditions, we are rescheduling tonight’s dinner meeting to Tuesday, February 15.  It will still be at the Cliff Dwellers Club.  We hope you can still make it and will assume that you will be there unless we hear otherwise from you.
OK, we're behind on the February calendar: what else is new?

So we want to alert you to two events for Tuesday evening, February 1st:

Mansueto Library - James Swanson and Jonathan Sladek of Halvorsen and Partners will talk about engineering the University of Chicago's new Mansueto Library (which we've written about here, complete with video tour) for this month's dinner meeting of the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois at the Cliff Dwellers. Reservations required.  Info here.

First Tuesday Happy Hour - this month's get-together by the Young Architects Forum of AIA Chicago is at Theory on west Hubbard.  Info here:

sometime during the course of these events, there will be a pounding at the door . . .
So I'm kind of thinking all bets are off for Wednesday, February 2nd, but right now, Ward Miller and John Vinci are scheduled to talk about their amazing new book, The Complete Architecture of Adler and Sullivan at the 12:15 lunchtime lecture at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.  Break out your huskies and stop by. Info here.

Also on Wednesday, the 2nd, there's a second scheduled showing for the documentaries koolhaus houselife and Interview at the Siskel at 6:00 p.m.  info here.

Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen.  Place your bets.
