Into the House of the Ducks

After escaping the rain and the snow of DC this morning, I landed in Memphis and headed to the "house of the ducks." Even at 2:00 this afternoon, the lobby was full of eager conference attendees mingling with their compatriots. After a light supper (see below), I checked in and browsed the exhibits. The auction table was hopping, and the MLA t-shirts were going quickly. (Note: Get yours while supplies last). It was nice to see the variety of attendees this year, both in country of origin and age/experience. Things are dying down in the room now at 10:11, but I can feel the anticipation of a great conference ahead.

RECOMMENDATION: Both the mixed greens salad and the calamari at Capriccio Grill were wonderful!
