I’m almost half way through week 2 at Core Analyst School. I’ve made some good friends from Spain, England, and Finland, to name a few. Last Thursday a bunch of Accenture people went to Cadillac Ranch, a local bar and dance club. I was surprised how so many consultants can party so hard. The best (and worst) part about the place was the free Cuervo shots.
My start group is also here. Eight of us paid a visit to Chicago (about an hour away) over the weekend for some “festivities.” We hit up the bar on the 96th floor of Hancock Tower and 3 other local bars. It was an all-around success: No one was sick, Riley got a girl’s number, and Mario chastized a woman in the next car who made her opinion known using racial slurs.
This coming weekend I’ll be spending some time in Chicago on my own. I plan to eat pancreas, visit Wrigley Field, Sears Tower and the Art Institute of Chicago, and maybe even sing “Danke Schoen” or “Twist and Shout” in the Von Steuben Day parade.
