London mayor chooses Chicago as 1st visit to a US city


CHICAGO (AP) _ Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a full day of activities planned as he hosts London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Emanuel’s office says Friday’s visit makes Chicago the first U.S. city Khan has been to since he was elected earlier this year. Emanuel and Khan plan to tour the Chicago Riverwalk in the morning. Then they’re scheduled to 1871, a digital startup community located in the Merchandise Mart.

Later in the day the mayors will head to a soon-to-be-opened Whole Foods Market on the city’s South Side. They’re scheduled to end their day with a dinner at the Art Institute of Chicago. Celebrity chef Graham Elliott is set to cater the event.
