Hey, Chicago! Dallas Will Drink Your Milk Convention. Drink It Up! Yeah, That's Right.
From the sound of this piece out of Chicago, not to mention the comments posted along with it, residents of the Windy City are mighty unhappy with the Washington, D.C.-based International Dairy Foods Association, which has announced that, sorry, but it's bringing its 2010 International Dairy Show to Dallas. Yup -- looks like. September 13-15 at the Dallas Convention Center, mark it down. For years, the dairy folks held a biennial expo in Chicago along with the American Meat Institute. But they've since separated -- guess it wasn't kosher? (Hi, I'm Jackie Mason.) So why Dallas over Chicago? "Chicago is not inexpensive."
