The Old Post Office has straddled the Eisenhower Expressway for so long we forget what a marvel it really is...and was. In his presentation, Les Ventsch will review the history of the building in the city, the original design and how it's being repositioned to new office functions for its next chapeter as an iconic Chicago structure. The evening begins with appetizers followed by dinner and the presentation.
