    February 18-20 Chicago meet agenda.

    Ok, so now that we've got the dates set, what do we wanna do?

    I'd like to go see the Lamborghini/Ferrari/Rolls Royce dealers. Always fun to go see exotics up close and buy merchandise that I don't have access to in MN. Some of us could meet and do this Friday afternoon, and I think most of these dealers close at 6 or 7. Ogden Avenue is where all these are laid out, down in Westmont, Downers Grove.

    Auto show all day Saturday. Saturday is best because we're all here and it's the longest day available. We could meet there around 11 or so, and leave 5-6. Dinner and sightseeing afterwords downtown would be great as well. Get drunk, go to bars, go to strip clubs, etc etc.

    Sunday, we could have brunch and chill out or whatever.

    We've done this pattern at the last few meets and we've always had a blast.

    My flight arrives at O'Hare at 4:10 Friday afternoon, and Jimmy will pick me up. If there's time, I'd enjoy checking out the exotics. If you guys start earlier, I can always text you to see where you are when we leave the airport and determine a time and place to meet.

    I want to see some Blues brothers film sites! "This is definitely Lower Wacker Drive! If my estimations are correct, we should be very close to the Honorable Richard J. Daley Plaza!"

    I'd be fine with a trip down Lower Wacker Drive (a name you can't say without snickering) to the Honorable Richard J. Daley Plaza, but I'd avoid what's left of Dixie Square Mall:

    I think lower Wacker might be under construction, but there are plenty of other locations.

    I believe the tickets are around, 20 to 25 dollars a pieces. Food at the show of course is over priced. Im thinking to save a little money maybe pack a lunch for the day and around lunch time or when every one in hungry go out side and eat. Once you leave the show you can get a hand stamp to come back in after you've payed.

    Pack a lunch from what? The gourmet kitchen of a Priceline'd hotel room?

    Almost everyone is traveling in from out of town...that is going to be more hassle than it's worth.

    Yeah, part of the fun of the auto show is eating at the vendors inside McCormick.
