    Chicago Auto Show 2009

    Are any of you up for doing an auto show/get together weekend this year. I know Nick is planning on having the Midwest meet here this year so you may not want to drive here twice but I think it would be fun if we could get together more than once a year. I never made it last year because of work but if we get something together within the next few weeks I could make it. Let me know what you all think.

    I was thinking we could have a small meet like last year in February, around the 7th or 8th. We could do some sightseeing around Chicago, get some good food, then end it with the auto show.

    That sounds like something I'd be down for. Lemme talk to Brian and Tanner and see what we can come up with.

    Can we do a Friday night-Sunday sort of thing? My schedule is much easier nowadays, I now have Saturdays off.

    I believe that is what you all did last year and it sounded like it worked well. Drive out Friday and get some food/do some sightseeing. We could go to the Auto Show on Saturday (will be very crowded though) and do something else that night and then have breakfast Sunday morning and you all could drive back home.

    What would you all like to do on Friday/Saturday night? Chicago in the winter sucks and the city pretty much shuts down by 8pm. There is not much night life down town.

    Last year we got pizza downtown, so that works. Give me something chicago style and in a dish as deep as Lake Michigan.

    ^ Gary, both you and I are under drinking age.

    Where did you want to go for pizza? Around here we have a place called Aurelios that is, IMO, even better than Giordanos. Would any of you be up for something as casual as going bowling afterward? There are also Giordanos all over the area if you did want to go to one it does not have to be downtown. Personally I avoid the city whenever possible. I am just more at home in the burbs. We can do city stuff on Saturday and maybe just hang out Friday night. Everything is cheaper (food, lodging, gas) out here anyway and it really is not bad heading into/out of the city on a Saturday. There is also a great hookah bar here in Lisle, if any of you would be up for it.

    Just some food for thought. Keep the suggestions coming on what else you would all want to do. Also, it is running the 13-22 this year. Which weekend would you like to set this up for, the 13-15 or the 20-22?

    February's not looking good for me at this point. I can make any meet scheduled in April - whenever, but I'd have a difficult time getting to Chicago in February. Let me see what I can work out.

    Right now, it looks like I can get a round-trip from Portland to Midway for ~$300, so I should be able to come. Once we set a date, I'll buy my tickets.

    I am in. Been a long time since I was at the Chicago show. Can we entice AB to come out with us?

    Re: Chicago Auto Show 2009

    Well, depending on what day(s) you guys plan on going I may be able to come, if my school/life schedules are willing.

    M next obstacle would be if I can get a ride or not . ( I can't drive by myself until early summer ) A clean shot up I-57 would get me there in a minute, but if I have to take the CTA I would need to leave...now.

    I am assuming you mean AlBundy, in which case I already sent him a PM.


    Rodya, I am sure one of us will be able to tote you around for the weekend. Someone is gonna have to go to Midway or O'hare to pick up gdwriter anyway. The only clause is if its me you will be riding in my POS winter truck, which is very far from what us Caddy people are used to.


    How does the first weekend sound, the 13-15? If we have it the second weekend you all will be having to drive here in a month again anyway for the Midwest meet unless Nick is having it a little later in the year this time. It was just a little chilly and windy last year.
