    Long time lurker, picking up my car this week! Are there any get-togethers near Chicago coming up? I see the party in Ohio but that is a little far. Would anybody like to meet for lunch in the next couple of weeks?

    Thanks! I think it might... I actually didn't sleep at all last night and I have at least 3 more days to go.

    I'm downtown - sucks for insurance, gas, parking, pretty much everything. I'm considering leaving it at a friend's house in Morton Grove and picking it up on weekends but I know I'm going to want to drive it every day. Still trying to figure that out. Hey - parking is free from 9pm - 8am so if I drive it all day I'm good right? :D

    This weekend I'm going on a road trip to a friend's wedding in Michigan :D But I'll pm you if you want to get together the weekend after!

    Slithr - thanks, yes that's the one!

    Just got the email about it. Unfortunately the 1871 opening is tomorrow and I was planning to go to that. Very unlikely I'll be there tomorrow :(
