So I get a new blog playground, and almost immediately have to take a break. Another housekeeping note: I’ll be blogging Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from the North American International Auto Show, for the Free Press. This won’t be NN.C-type blogging, just straight reporting on the series of press conferences that stretch over the three-day press preview. You can see by the schedule it’ll be a bit hectic, so I don’t know how much gas I’ll have left in the tank by the time I get home. From the pacing, I expect I’ll be huffing Simoniz by Tuesday noon, but you never know.
If you’re interested in following the action, go to Freep.com and look around. I’m sure there’ll be a link from the main page.
This is a very cool show. I was last there two years ago, when I was a journalism fellow. The thing about press days is, every booth has a bar and a noshing opportunity, and what a time we had, wandering from Jaguar to Jeep to Porsche, swilling wine as we went. I especially remember the party atmosphere — and frozen daiquiris — at the Mini Cooper booth.
This year, alas, no alcohol for me. Maybe Gatorade.
