    Re: February 18-20 Chicago meet agenda.

    When are we going down to the Auto Show? Mid/late morning breakfast somewhere and then go Downtown?

    I'm also really feeling Giordano's Downtown after the show for dinner...

    No, you are not. Trust me. Every place downtown has a wait, and they are all 15-20% more than their suburban counterparts. Maybe more.

    If you guys want the ultimate pizza, that absolutely CANNOT be had anywhere besides here, I would recommend Nick&Brunos. Best pizza, ANYWHERE, ever. There is a problem though. Their dining room is one small table.

    There is still a Fuddruckers on Golf rd. Unbelievable hamburgers that you dress up yourself.

    Jameson's char house is also very good. I think they are little pricey though.

    And of course there is Uno's. Great food, good pizza, reasonable price.

    I doubt any of the major restaurants are going to take reservations on a Friday or Saturday night.

    The IKEA in Portland is always crowded as well.

    Although not everything there is a deal, a lot of it is. Two years ago, I got a leather sleeper sofa and matching recliner for $1,600. Very comfortable (even the sleeper sofa) and high quality. It's sturdy and has held up well. Recently, I bought a set of stainless steel cookware — a Teflon skillet, large, medium and small pots with lids for $40. I'd have to spent at least $100 to $150 to get something of similar quality anywhere else. Even a cheap set of aluminum pots and pans at Target is at least $40.

    The place is a maze and there's no such thing as a pop-in, pop-out trip to IKEA, but I'm can tolerate it for nice stuff at great prices.

    They have free breakfast on Saturdays here. That's when it's at its worst.

    I dont think you are going to be able to plan anything in advance. That could be too many, or not enough. Who knows.

    Re: February 18-20 Chicago meet agenda.

    Have been exchanging messages with JD's Aunt Kathleen. She's actually in the city and doesn't want to endure the traffic out to Schaumburg Friday night (I don't blame her), but she'd like to join us for dinner Saturday after the auto show. I told her a number of us like Giordano's, but that's not carved in stone. I have her phone number and can give her an update when we know.

    The rest of his family we met at the wake are in the suburbs, so I sent them a message on Facebook about the plans for Friday night.

    Kathleen also suggested for anyone who's interested some blues clubs in Chicago: Buddy Guy's club is in the south loop, there are the more touristy places on the north side (Kingston Mines, B.L.U.E.S) and then a great hole in the wall place in her neighborhood, Rosa's Lounge. I would be up for that.

    Buddy guy's is cool, but the traffic and conjestion around those areas is not worth it. If you guys want to do it, that's cool. But me count me out of anything downtown other than the auto show.

    Wildfire had openings for 8 people Fri evening (limit of OpenTable interface), I'll call and see if they'll take a group of 13/11.
