Stomach bug 1, Sue 0


I was supposed to go to the opening of the new convention center in Hartford, Conn., today. Then I was felled by a dastardly stomach bug (you don't want to know, trust me!). I rescheduled for Monday, so by next week I should have something to say about the Connecticut Convention Center, which has 140,000 square feet of exhibit space; a 40,000-square-foot ballroom; 25,000 square feet of meeting space; and 30,000 square feet of function space. I hope to also get a glimpse of the new Marriott and the Hilton Hartford, which is rumored to have a Chinese/Jewish deli restaurant that's pretty good. I'm just bummed I missed all the pomp and circumstance of the official opening today. At least my stomach is starting to settle down, finally--I may have lost six pounds in a day, but this is one diet method I definitely do not recommend!
