    Chicago International Cycle Show-Rosemont

    I plan on seeing the show on Saturday, 2/7. Hopefully the record blizzard of '09 will bypass the midwest and go to Key West, FLA.
    Anyone interested in meeting up at the MOA booth and then going for lunch?
    Rebecca V?, Manicmechanic? Wezul? Woodnsteel? Hodag? Sue RM? and about 40,000 other members?

    I'm in.

    Assuming that BMW has a booth - I'd like to meet up.

    Marcin? Uncutshirt?

    Thumbs up Ted Moyer to the white courtesy phone please

    BMW MOA will have a booth.
    I am not sure BMW NA will have one.

    I will edit my previous post for clarity.

    BMW MOA will be there. BMW should also have their typical manufacturer's display as well.

    I wish I could remember where, but I did see where BMW was planning to be in Chicago. I'm hoping my schedule will allow me to do the same.

    I could be there. The real question is: Where in the world would we go for lunch around/in the convention center?

    I'll be there Fri, Sat, & Sun, working the booth with the Manleys and Ted Moyer. Could do lunch!

    Let us know what you had in mind!

    I was thinking in terms of meeting up at the MOA booth about 12:45pm.
    Surely some of the locals know about good places within walking distance.
    I have had lunch at the Hyatt, and it was good, but hotel prices are always a bit higher.

    On the other hand, we could coordinate grills, kegs, and sausages and show the world how it is really done! Randy, are you up for the challenge?

    I'll be coordinating a van full of folks for the trip, so I don't think there will be room for the "necessities." But meeting up for lunch sounds doable.

    What kind and how many? Then we need to find a place to smoke them. Some Bourbon or single-malt Scotch would go well, too. Whaddya got?
