Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, April 30

The free lunches consisted of two sandwiches (turkey, chicken breast, or roast beef), which came on a really thick, tough bun (maybe more shelf stable?).

And, despite their rather uninspired contents, these press lunches disappeared almost the instant they were set out; it was hit or miss whether we got one in time each day.  So, I guess that's the lesson:  there IS such a thing as a free lunch, but only if you're press, and they're not spectacular, and even so, the early bird totally gets the, um, free lunch.  Anyway, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, so thanks for the lunch, Artropolis!  I'm going to end this here before I drag out any more hackneyed expressions.
