    Official '08 Chicago meet thread.

    Nicki, Elias and I thought we should make a thread that details the meet location, the attendance list and the schedeule for the Feb 9-10 meet in Chicago, so here goes!

    I will be attending. For sure the 10th, hopefully I can get off of working on the 9th, so I can come down either on the 9th, or Thursday night, but probably Friday early afternoon, because I'd like to leave here around 9 or so, and get down there between 3-4.

    Aside from the meet, the only things I wanna do as far as sightseeing go would be to go to the Ferrari/Lamborghini dealer, or perhaps a Rolls Royce/Bentley dealer, or go to the top of the Sears Tower.

    Re: Official '08 Chicago meet thread.

    I think you might have your dates confused. The 8th is Friday, 9th and 10th are the weekend.

    Friday is my Bday, not sure if I am doing anything for it.

    9th and 10th I now have off, so I am up for anything. There are two Bentley dealerships here. One in Downers Grove and one downtown.

    FYI, the view from the John Hancock tower is much better than the Sears Tower. Sears Tower is taller, but it is not lakefront. If you have the time, I suggest going to the Museum of Science & Industry.

    Either way Nicole & are are up for the car show and other activities!

    Nicki and you live in Downers Grove right? It'd probably be easiest for me to go to that Bentley dealer.

    My workweek is Mon-Thurs and Saturday. That's why I said if I can get Saturday (9th) off work, I can come down on the 8th and hang around until Sunday Night. I'd probably go to the dealers and do the sight seeing on Friday, before we all get together.

    It's $12 per person to go to the top of the Sears Tower... not really all that great since I've been up there more times than I can count.

    The Bentley dealership is on the same road as the Ferrari and Lambo dealership, just farther down across the street by the Chipotle and Wendy's. There's practically every car dealer known to man on Ogden Avenue, except caddy... its on Roosevelt (Heritage Cadillac).

    Oh darn, I've still gotta go though...either to there or the John Hancock building. Just so I can send my friends a postcard of the building, with the quote "where were you while we were getting high"?

    O....M....G! Exotics, all parked on one street, WITH a Wendys?!

    That means I can look at Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys and Rollers while I eat a fresh Baconator!

    I see....well if I can do that and not have to pay the $12 then that's what I'll do.

    Been there, haven't done that.... yet.... one of these days, I just typically avoid the city, too much traffic and I don't know my way around, not a good combo.... Now St. Louis, I can get around fairly well.....

    Yeah kinda like taking folks up in the Arch, ... after the 10th or 12th time you'd rather wait for them in the museum.
