    There should be no concern about rush hour traffic since this is a Saturday but be aware that Chicago is a big city. Plan for problems and finding parking. I noted above the parking that is available. Use www.mapquest.com to map out a route from your location to Reza's. If you want to meet up with others and ride together to the restaurant, please do.

    I have been to a few meetups at restaurants and 13 to 15 is large enough to suggest this. Do you want to mix up the seating after the main course and sit near new people for dessert/etc? Sometimes hi and goodbye is all that is accomplished if people are on opposite ends of the table.

    Reza's food is great and served only by men (unless they changed it). The soup is great and the feta cheese and veggies before are wonderful.

    I'm getting anxious.

    Love, Blondie

    I've talked to the amazing Amazing, Blondie. He's a go. Add him to the list.

    Okay, Bradley.

  • joannadandy

    Ok so some of us out of towners will be rolling in to the big city Friday. Anyone have any suggestions on where to go, or plans to hang out?

    As a general rule of thumb ~"stay outta the South Side" unless you have small arms and a armored car.

    The Museums and cool stuff near Lincoln Park and Navy Pier are neat... Feild Museum of Science and Industry, Shedd Aquarium etc.

    If it was warmer, a trip to Wrigley would be grand........watch the Cubbies!

    And.....if you like to window shop....State Street has it all........ Down town Chicago is really cool.

    PS... I wish I could make it but duty calls that weekend!

    For those who ask, I have not arranged for a central hotel since people's circumstances vary and I don't want to be like the WTS demanding you say at a certain place. We are staying out by OHare because it is a little cheaper.

    Nice to hear you might be coming Snapdragon. There is a Madison area contingency going down on Saturday, so let me know.

    Thanks for the info Blonde.

    I'm at work now so I'm trying to get someone to work my weekend. A few people owe. Man I really hope I can go. It sounds like a fun crew. Count me into the potentials. I don't know if I'd bring the husband....he might feel a little wierd will all of us f'd up ex-JW's around. We'll see. I'll let you know for sure, via pm, Blondie.

    kls-Bummer. I really was hoping to meet you face to face. What on earth could possibly be more important than an apostafest? Field Service? That done at noon.

    Chicago Festers:

    So I will be going for sure (hooray for me) and my mother will be accompanying me. She's not a member of this forum, and I doubt she's ever been here.

    So Blondie, add two for sures to your list!

    Thanks for all the work you've put into this BTW.

    Anyone that will be attending can PM me for my cellphone number as this might assist in organizing this shin-dig. No phone sex, though!


  • logansrun

    Oh, one more IMPORTANT thing.

    The Tribune's weather section today predicts that it is going to be in the SINGLE DIGITS this weekend. In other words, we are going to be freezing our asses off! So dress warm. And, more importantly, be sure your CAR is in order and winterized; ie anitfreeze, windshield washer fluid, jumper cables, etc.

    Better to be prepared.
