    And we should do that Billy Goat grille or whatever it's called on Friday night, if possible.
    Omega is freakin' awesome! They have a meal there called the Hobo Skillet. It is a skillet full of hash browns (a good half pound) covered in 4 kinds of melted cheese served with a side of pancakes. It is to die for.

    The Billy Goat is in the city. I don't know if you are planning on going there for the evening or not. However, a place called The Patio was thrown around and that is on Rt. 83 which runs right by the Downers Grove area. I would assume you are staying in the western burbs somewhere especially if you want to hit the dealers Sat. morning. Jesda needs to make reservations. Only one and a half weeks left.

    Ah I just remembered another place we can eat on Friday, Portillos! There's a new one on rt 83. I believe we casually stopped at one last year, and saw the almighty Isuzu in the parking lot.

    Re: Chicago Auto Show 2009

    Finally I have time to get my behind on the forum! I'm all for taking the Metra (I have a monthly pass woot!) and the El (love my U-Pass). Day passes I believe are still $5 so we can take you around, pass Wrigley Field and US Cellular (boo Soxs!). If you need a place to stash your bag Gary we can throw them in my apartment downtown (I can give you guys a tour). Also I have my mom's mini van so if we go back out to the burbs to Giordano's or Portillo's I can take some of you guys.

    I do not know if Jason is coming, last I heard he might drive out but we shall see.

    I know the Hobo Skillet, that is my mom's favorite I personally like the mickey mouse pancakes but they wouldn't give them to me since I'm not under 13 grrr.

    Re: Chicago Auto Show 2009

    Oh, wise hotel choice. You will be about 3 miles from my house and about 1.5 miles from where I work. You can come visit me there (see below).

    Bad News: Apparently Wal-Mart decided that it is too busy of a weekend for me to have off. My schedule is as follows: Friday - 10:30-7:30. Saturday - 3:30-10:30. Sunday - 3:30-8:00.

    That being said I will meet up with you on Friday night and Saturday morning. I am trying vigilantly to at least get Sunday off. Gary, there is a Portillo's on Butterfield Road right near I-355. It is about 2.5 miles from the hotel where everyone is staying. For Friday night would you all want to eat there and then head somewhere, maybe a bowling ally? If you can't tell I haven't been bowling in a while and I really want to go. I may miss eating dinner with you guys because of how late I am working that night.

    Saturday I am assuming you are still eating at Omega and visiting some dealerships. I can do that much with you and then drive you all to the train station but that is as far as I go that day. I am driving the Isuzu currently but if need be I can borrow my Dad's full size van. He got a new one (2000) so its not the crappy green screaming metal death trap you all saw at the Midwest meet. Sunday is still up in the air. I may also catch a horrible disease on that day.

    I know the Portillo's on Butterfield, it's 2 minutes from my house in Downers. I am scheduled to work 2PM-6PM on Saturday but I might see if someone can take my shift, people owe me a shitload. I have a mini van so driving people around is not a problem (plus I have a navigation system just in case). Btw, did we want to go to Girodano's downtown or in the burbs? Just so I can make a reservation this time.

    I won't be avaliable Friday until late afternoon/night, something I was supposed to do this Friday got pushed back to next.

    And I think we're going to Giordanos on 22nd street, same one as last year.
