IML 2013: Thursday

What an amazing weekend! I'm sad to say that it's over. While this year's IML was different in every way from last year's, it was every bit as exciting! I can't wait to get my accounts of the weekend posted here, but until then, here is day 1, Thursday:

I arrived Thursday afternoon, prior to many of my friends. Aside from some annoyances with the cta ticket machines, traveling went relatively smoothly. Several of my friends had arrived days before to get set up for the busy weekend in the market, so I didn't see much of them that evening as they still had a lot to do. I was very happy to be invited to join YngMstrDetroit and his crew for dinner. I spent very little time with this group last year, so it was great to get to know them all better over a nice meal. By the time we got back to the hotel, a few of my closest friends were just about to arrive. I met up with a new friend just before to show him to our room. Once my friends arrived and got settled, we all went out to a little Irish restaurant that we frequented during last year's event. By that time, it was rather late so it felt like we were the only ones in the place. We enjoyed drinks and each other's company while catching up. The next day would be the start to a very interesting weekend, full of activities that I wouldn't have even guessed I would do...
