Official schedule for the February 8-10 Chicago meet.
Alright, here's how it's going down for the group that's hanging out with me.
Friday, February 8 2008:
-9 AM- Tanner (Derrty_Deville) and I will leave from Minneapolis. We may leave around 7 for ideal traffic conditions (try like hell to avoid rush hour in Chicago!!!!!!). If we do, we'll let you know.
-4 PM- This is when about we expect to arrive in Downers Grove. At this time, I will contact Gary, Ryan (Crown Vic Owner), John (JRau), Elias (96 Fleetwood), Nicki and inform them that I am in town. The plan was to have Tanner and I meet at Gary's house in Lemont, then picking up others before we go and browse the high end dealers down on Ogden Avenue in Downers Grove. If you want to come and look at Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Cadillacs, BMWs, Benzes , and other high end cars, feel free to come along. My cell number is 651-587-3600. I have my phone on from about 10 AM CST until about Midnight CST. Just please don't call after 11 PM CST.
-6:30- Jason arrives at Midway Airport, Ryan picks him up.
-7:30- Gary, Tanner, JRau and I meet Ryan, Nicki and Jason at DePaul University. No plans afterwords set in stone yet, but it's agreed we should find a nice restaurant and dine! It's Elias's birthday so him and his fiance (Nicole) are going out to dinner, and will call me when they're back at home, so I can swing by and drop my stuff off there.
Saturday, February 9 2008:
-Morning- No plans set in stone yet, but I know that Nicki and Jason are free, along with Ryan, Tanner, John and Gary. Brunch/Breakfast perhaps? Elias has to work from 8-3, so I can't hang around his house much that morning.
-12:45- Gary (GDwriter) gets into Midway from Portland. Flight 214 from Southwest. I will be picking him up in the S Class. Nicki has shown an interest in guiding me there. Anyone else is free to come. It seats 5, but 4 is preferred. Otherwise, we could motorcade if there's enough interest. Then, I'd have to drop Gary off at the hotel that Jesda, Gary and Tanner are staying at in Downer's Grove. From there, we will tour downtown with anyone that wants to come. Nicki and Gary would be the tour guides. The only thing I really wanna do is go to the top of the John Hancock Tower.
-7:00- Dinner at Giordanos in Oakbrooke Terrace. Nicki has reserved a table for 15.
No plans afterwords, maybe this is when I'll race Jesda?
Sunday, February 10 2008:
-Morning- No plans set in stone yet. Brunch perhaps again?
-1:00- Meet at the Cadillac display at the Auto Show. Not sure how or when everyone is getting to McCormick place, but I know that I'm riding with Elias in his Roadmaster sedan, and we're going early. Not sure how early yet. Jesda had said earlier that he would take his Navigator down, it seats 7.
-6:00- This would be the absolute latest I could leave for Minneapolis. It's a six and a half hour drive, and I've gotta work Monday morning at 10:30
That's all. If you can think of anything else, just post it!
Like I said earlier, if you've got any questions or want to suggest something, feel free to give me a call on my cell phone. 651-587-3600. It's on from 10 AM until Midnight CST. I have text msg capabilites, but a phone call is preferred. I prefer a phone call, but I'm on AIM generally after 10 PM CST. My screen name is Chadillac8705
