Where will you be on July 24, 2009?
I'll be in Chicago with 1,000 bloggers at the BlogHer annual conference.
More than 100,000 people, perhaps including a blogger or two, will be in Gilroy, California, at the world's most famous garlic festival.
As interesting as it is, BlogHer's agenda can't compete with the Great Garlic Cook-off, the Miss Gilroy Garlic Festival parade, and hundreds of food vendors offering their specialties in honor of the "stinking rose".
Which, by the way, is not a rose at all; it's a lily.
