Last night, Orange Alert Reading Series at the Whistler in Logan Square, followed by opening night cocktails at Matilda's in Lakeview.
Check out the first round of Pilcrow 2009 photos on our group flickr pool. Everyone is welcome to add photos throughout the week, we only ask that the tag "pilcrow09" is one that is used to tag said pic. Easy peasy.
