    re: Chicago Auto Show - February 18-20 - Who's Going?

    I'm all set to go. I've got the day off of work, so I'm as ready as can be. Now with two sources of income, I'll have more money to play around with too!

    I'm pushing for staying in the suburbs! I'm not paying $45 a night for parking downtown, that's ridiculous! We had a great time in the 'burbs last two years, why change it?

    i wasnt there last year or the year before or any other year iethere
    but im still pushing for the burbs because well if we end up donwtown with the 40 or 45 per nite to park thats like 90 bucks
    im like yeah i know ok why press over 90 bucks for parking if your already gona be spending like 300 or so on a trip but well i think about it like this
    if we get hotels around 50 a nite or something
    and then there is 90 for parking maybe even more
    then there is gas and tolls for us wo are driving
    food where are we like 400 or 500 already ?
    i know who cares about an extra 90 well in this darn econmy where gas is 3.20 a gallon gota bush the buket somewhere lol

    I doubt that hotels Downtown will be $50...my guess would be around $90-100 even with Priceline.

    Jesda usually gets us something in the 'burbs for ~$60 a night. And they've always been nice properties.

    No space, expensive parking, too crowded, everything is insanely expensive, all the big restaurants have chains out in the burbs, we've already been to the Sears & Hancock, etc etc etc

    thats what day trips are for
    shoot we find a hotel in the burbs
    and take a day trip into the city do what ever no one has to pay for parking
    we can pile 2 or 3 ppl into the caddys if not 4 depending on our size at a time and just hit the city thats why

    why spend like what i had said 300 or 400 for 2 days when we could get away with 200 or 300 not saying thats the price it problaby will be more after gas and all tolls and stuff for non locals but still why spend the extraoo 1 or 200 more for parking and a hotel when we can spend half of that to drive into the city and party there
