    It'll be easier to priceline.

    Lets go over the itinerary again:

    Friday:
    Everyone arrives and we go out to dinner somewhere. Would we rather do a formal place or a cheaper burger joint like Smashburger or Five Guys, or perhaps a pizza joint? There are three very good car shows in the area too every Friday night. North St Paul is anything older than 1975, and it's about a half mile of street that's blocked off for viewing. Anoka is a lot like that, but it's about an hour north of me, and Hastings is the same setup, but it's probably 2x the size of North St Paul, again, it's only classics. Porky's is OK, but the other three have much cooler, rarer cars and the crowd is much less douchey.

    Saturday:
    Go out on a nice cruise down on the Mississippi River or maybe perhaps out to Rock Falls Raceway for a test n' tune. Go out to eat at night somewhere. Anoka and Hastings have their car shows on Saturday night as well.

    Sunday:
    Brunch and then anything else you'd want to do.

    Before doing Priceline, we need to know exactly how many rooms. When you bid on a price, you can only specify the area where you want to stay (we're looking at places near the airport) and the amenity level of the hotel (usually three stars); you do not get to choose the specific hotel. And once your bid is accepted, your credit card is charged. Since we all want to stay in the same hotel, one person has to make the reservation. JimmyH has said he's willing to do this, but he's only going to bid based on who says they need a room Friday and Saturday night.

    And if you do RSVP, you need to pay for your room as soon as the reservation is made. When Jesda has done this for us in the past, anybody he makes a reservation for would reimburse him via PayPal. If Jimmy doesn't have a PayPal account, he can tell you how to pay him. If you're not sure, we'll post the hotel location once the reservations are made, and you can choose to make a reservation there on your own or stay at another hotel.

    Re: Minneapolis meet! June 11-13 2010.

    Enough procrastination I have called the Hilton and secured a group rate. I'll be making my reservations as soon as I finish this post. Here is the info.



    Lawrence,

    Good morning! Thanks for the opportunity to work with you and your group here June 11-13, 2010. I have set aside a block of 10 rooms for you. Please have your guests ask for the “Cadillac Owners” Room block to get the special discounted $89 rate.



    Individuals will be making their own reservations directly with our Reservations Department at 952/893-9500 or 1-800-HILTONS, or 1-800-445-8667 by Friday, June 4, 2010.



    After Friday, June 4, 2010, any uncommitted rooms will be released. Reservations requested after that date will be accepted as long as availability permits on a first-come, first-serve basis.



    All individuals making their reservations directly with the hotel must guarantee the first night’s room and tax with a credit card or check advance deposit. Each can still cancel his or her reservation until 12:01 AM on the day of arrival without incurring any cancellation charge. Cancellations made after 12:01 AM and no-shows will forfeit the first night’s room and tax deposit.



    ARRIVAL TIME:

    Check-in time is 3:00pm. While every effort is made to accommodate guests arriving before 3:00pm, rooms may not be immediately available.



    Check-out time is 12:00 noon. Requests to retain rooms beyond 12:00 noon should be directed to the Front Office Supervisor after the guest is registered. Should it be possible to extend a late check-out, a late departure charge may be applied.



    Our hotel website is www.bloomingtonhilton.com



    Here you should find directions and our amenities we offer at the property.



    Let me know if you have any other questions.



    Thanks,

    Todd

    Mike, when I called to make my reservation, I was told it was a 24-hour cancellation policy. That's why my confirmation e-mail says as well.

    Planning on coming? If so what would you bring? One of the Roadies?

    I am SO tempted to come -- if I weren't already on my third rescheduling of Beretta's obedience school, I would have already committed.....

    I'm going to see what I can do (both w/his class and rescheduling a work trip...). If I come, yes it will be in a wagon, and it will include a dog.....however, I'll have to stay somewhere more pet friendly... (probably La Quinta).

    Thanks Larry! I tried to get the group discounts set up, but didn't have the luck you did.

    way to go Lawrence (<--)

    I was waiting for everyone to post for sure before I did priceline or anything. Your way is better. At least we know which hotel we are at now. I am going to call and book a room.


    edit, I am booked

    I still think Fogo De Chao is a great option if you want a sit down nicer place. It might be a little more expensive but worth every penny and about half the price of Manny's.
