Two nights ago when it was really cool out my house got down to 68 degrees over night. I had to use a comforter (which I use year round anyway), a flannel sheet and I had to turn on my electric mattress pad because I woke up freezing in the middle of the night.

Michelle just mentioned to me the other day she would like to go to the auto show. She has never been to one before. I have not been to the Chicago auto show in over 10 years. I have not seen any auto show in over 10 years if you don't count Detroit (and the four whole cars I actually saw at the show while i was there.)

So I am in. anyone considering a weekday visit to McCormick?

I would love to go on a weekday because there will be less crowds but I have schoool. I may be able to get a Friday off, but that is usually the day everyone drives down or flies in.

Depart Portland, OR (PDX) 10:10 am
Arrive Chicago-O'Hare (ORD) 4:00 pm

Sun, Feb 21

Arrive Portland, OR (PDX) 7:10 pm

If possible, I'd like to do the auto show on Saturday; I know it will be more crowded, but last year especially, I didn't get to see as much as I would have liked because I had to catch my flight home.

The PITA is that I will most likely have to work that Friday. Maybe I can request it off and be there Friday afternoon. That would be nice. I love to travel and it would be really nice to put some faces with names/screen names. With a few *cough*osu*cough* recent exceptions, all the most active long time members seem to be very cool and good spirited people.

12-08-09, 12:24 PM
Friday nights are, IMO, the best night. Last couple of times we just hung out somewhere doing whatever waiting for people to show up. Then we piled into a few cars and go get food (especially interesting with Jesda around :D). Afterward we'd go do something that has yet to be determined.

Gary, if I were to take the train from O'Hare Friday afternoon to downtown, how close is your place to a train stop?

I have asked Jesda about having him and Shatner book me a room in Downers Grove or thereabouts, but I don't know if anybody is willing to pick me up at O'Hare.

My idea was maybe to have dinner in the 'burbs Friday night. Car show Saturday, maybe Gary could host us (feel free to tell me to STFU since this suggestion is rather presumptuous of me) for some wingding at Chez Hebding Saturday evening. Brunch on Sunday? Are any of the exotic dealerships on Ogden Ave. open on Sunday? My flight home doesn't leave until 4:45 p.m. Sunday. I'm pretty open other than my arrival and departure for obvious reasons.

Well, you all drive Cadillacs (although JD's is in hibernation), so that's fully acceptable. I will admit, however, I would like a ride in Jimmy's new CTS.

What time do you arrive? I can leave work early or stay late. But I am always looking for an excuse to leave early :D

No real plans other than the show on Saturday. The rest we just make up as we go. Friday we'll probably meet up around 6 or 7 and eat and just chill somewhere for the night. If you're coming just PM people a phone number you can be reached at.

So can we get some sort of initial itinerary nailed down? I'm trying to think what the hell we did last year...

-Tanner and I left around 8-8:30
-Arrived @ hotel in DG around 4
-Met Gary, John and Nicki @ Lamborghini, around 5:30
-I bought a bunch of shit @ Lamborghini
-Went back to Nicki's place, met Jesda & hung out all night.

-Went out for breakfast next morning at that place named after the space station, or the greek place, whatever it was called. Apollo? Omega?
-Went & looked at Bentleys for a while, then Lamborghinis, then went downtown for a while then over to Nicki's/
-Sears Tower & Giordanos that evening

-Auto show on Sunday, then back to the cities around 4.


Sound about right? Wanna do something along those lines again this year?

01-30-10, 03:07 PM
Last year didn't we go back to the Lambo dealers and such on Saturday? I remember being there in the daylight.

I'm down for whatever. I kinda want to go back to Buffalo Wild Wings for a meal (maybe we can meet there Friday night) like we did in August. It was fun, everyone relaxing/talking while eating and drinking.

01-30-10, 04:44 PM
And with the auto show on Saturday, we don't have to cut that short because people need to catch planes or hit the road.

I~LUV~Caddys8792
01-30-10, 08:25 PM
Yeah, lets grab some food at a relaxed place where we can sit n' chat for a while without getting in the way. John, yeah we went to Lamborghini twice...Friday night & Saturday morning.

How far out is the Rolls Royce dealer? That'd be a fun one...

Omega - http://omegarestaurants.com/

When Downers Grove was more grove than asphalt, my dad worked for the phone company and was based in the area while they were building their microwave towers. 30 years later I'm living in the area and during my parents first visit 20 years ago he insisted we go to Omega. Yeah, it's a long time family restaurant with a pastry/dessert counter to die for. Can't believe the web site doesn't even mention that part of the restaurant.

MacMuse
02-08-10, 11:58 AM
I'll probably be around for some of the festivities as well. Oak Brook is just 15 minutes away.

Your hotel puts you near OakBrook Center (oakbrookcenter.com), a very nice upscale outdoor mall the ladies will love (but perhaps not your pocketbook), and it's myriad of excellent restaurants including several from the Lettuce Entertain You chain (leye.com). Most of the restaurants are quite packed on a Friday evening, with entrees running in the $15-$25 range. Wildfire is my personal favorite in the area with a wonderful 60's dinner club feel (Martini Flight highly recommended for all passengers). J. Alexanders is quite good also, as are any of the LEYE entries. The previously mentioned Omega restaurant is about 15-20 minutes away. Omega's entrees are in the $8-$15 range with a much more casual environment.

If you're seeking a famous Chicago pizza - Giordano's in nearby Westchester is the spot - home of the best Chicago Stuffed Pizza.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to wipe the drool off my keyboard before it shorts out.

Haha the concert isn't until 7:30PM. I didn't realize the concert would be on the date of the forum meet :( As long as I get to go to the auto show with you boys it will be worth while. Plus I will bring the 18 year old and his best friend.

What is the plan for Friday night? I believe I am picking up Gary at ohare and we are heading down to whatever hotel you guys are staying at so he can check in. Then what? Dinner?

If I read the other thread right, you guys are at the Double Tree Oakbrook? There is a Maggiano's and a Ditka's right there in Oakbrook Terrace. There is certainly no shortage of choices within walking distance.

That's what I'm waiting to hear. Where and what time?
