Whether far from home or a subway ride away, you will enjoy the fellowship of other genealogists and the special treats that await you on Wednesday evening. We plan to welcome everyone to the area with Sweets Home Chicago. Share Chicago’s fun, where a combination of big city energy and Midwestern welcome will be found.

We will start our evening at 6:30 with the sweet jazz sounds of the Ken Chaney Xperience. Ken’s band was voted the Best Jazz Group in Chicago at the Ninth Annual Reggae Awards, and also won first prize for the Hennesy Best of Chicago Jazz Search. Ken has played all over the world, and has shared the bill with such luminaries as Natalie Cole and Miles Davis. His music will be the perfect start to the evening. Get a taste of the Chicago jazz scene as you mingle at the cash bar or pull up a chair at a table with old and new friends. But don’t fill up on coffee, tea, soda or cocktails just yet…

A dessert buffet will arrive around 7 p.m. You will find sweets in all shapes and flavors, as well as coffee and tea. Do you prefer cheesecake or chocolate fondue? Cream puffs or strudel? Chocolate covered fruit and nuts, or cakes and tarts? Having trouble deciding? Have a few of each! The dessert buffet is designed so that your decision making is limited to how high to pile the sweets on your plate.

Later in the evening the band will start a quieter set as the Ken Chaney Trio. Ken is toning it down so those who desire can break away into interest tables and chat about their common research areas, problems and favorite things. Take some time to pull aside a Consortium member to grill them on the famous Newberry Library, Chicago’s Harold Washington Library, NARA’s Great Lakes repository, or how to catch that subway. If you don’t want to break away feel free to stay where you are, eat more dessert, have another drink, listen to smooth jazz favorites, and enjoy the fellowship of the finest genealogists in the nation.

The bar closes at 9:30 p.m., so be sure to get your final beverage before last call. The event winds down at 10 p.m. so all can get a good night’s sleep before a full day of learning.
