If you're not on board with Chicago 2016, head to Federal Plaza (Adams and Dearborn) tonight for a protest event sponsored by No Games Chicago to welcome the visiting International Olympic Committee (who were already greeted this morning by city cops picketing City Hall in protest of a Daley-denied salary increase). Protest begins at 5pm.
