    Eat a big late breakfast, forgo lunch and enjoy dinner. Just let me know where dinner is. If I don't have to cross the Mason-Dixon line I'll try to meet you guys.

    That's how to do it. Why stop to eat when you can just look at cars. Save money. Pound more food at breakfast and dinner.

    Good point, and I do believe this is what we did the last few years. Last year we ate at the hotel restaurant, which was awful, but in '09, we ate brunch at Omega. Damn Larry, we were planning on having brunch at a Waffle House in Tallahassee, but since you won't go south of the M-D line, I guess we'll have to eat somewhere in Chicago....

    I like the $5 lemonade at the auto show. It comes with 2 oz of actual drink.

    The hotel I met you guys at last year was damned near south of the Mason-Dixon (for me). Took me an hour and a half to get there. I'm about 20 miles south of the Wisconsin border. That's why I keep saying someplace around O'Hare or Woodfield mall would be good (for me), but you can't make plans based on me. I'll make a decision based on what you guys decide.

    Priceline does give me the option of narrowing down to neighborhoods before spreading further out. What is the area near Woodfield Mall like? Is it as nice as Downers/Oak Brook/Lisle?

    Re: February 18-20 Chicago meet agenda.

    That's Schaumburg -- it's nice. Woodfield Mall is like a zoo. That area can get really crowded. Lots of nice restaurants.

    I-90 runs right through there (it's toll however) and is a straight shot into Downtown, but you come in from the north, where McCormick is south.

    It will be a long way from the exotic dealers that everyone (but me) wants to go to -- just fair warning. However long it takes to drive 20 something miles in Friday afternoon Chicago traffic. Not sure how long that is, but it can't be short.

    Re: February 18-20 Chicago meet agenda.

    Hueterm pretty much nailed it. Sounds like you've been here before. Maybe have dinner a little farther north? If you are flying into ORD, Schaumburg/Woodfield area is convenient. If you are flying into MDW, then where you where last year is probably better. If you want dealers row, then Downers/Oak Brook/Lisle is probably your best bet. Travel to Downers/Oak Brook/Lisle from ORD/Woodfield area has to be :45-:60 min I'd guess. Again, don't make plans based on me. I'll deal with what you guys decide based on what YOU all want.

    From time to time... :-) I bet any flyers will come in to ORD. If I can swing going, I'll be driving. I entertained the idea of Amtrak'ing it if we were staying Downtown, but that has its disadvantages too...

    Schaumburg does get congested on the weekends, but I am sure Downers Grove does as well. It is still not as bad as the city.
    Schaumburg to McCormick place is 35 miles. Downers Grove to McCormick is 25 miles. There is going to be nasty traffic no matter where we are going in from.

    I vote Schaumburg for the hotel as first choice, BTW, if we're taking a poll.
