All,  sorry for slacking a little on this, still haven't decided on the place.  I'm thinking of a bar but if we have a large group we can do something else.  I'll update soon.
What was wrong with Muvico? Seemed kinda funky.  :giggle:

You're right, I guess so far that's still the Plan A.  Maria, Glenview would be far, no public transportation goes there from the convention area so unless we all have cars and rides, it would be an ok idea.  You're thinking of the Glen?

I'll also update the roster, thanks Jones.

I'm not confirmed, Rum, please update.
Confirm darn you! lol

Maria, Yardhouse would be great choice actually. But again we would need atleast 3-4 cars for that trip.  I can offer mine but its still the rental lol  Plus maybe some people still had plans to go to the party on Friday?  If so we'd spend too much time over there I think.  And if we have cars, might as well go to downtown in my opinion.  Original intent was to stay local no?

if there isnt anything nice around the hotel, cant we just get cabs down to where ever we decide to go? between four people cab wouldnt be that expensive would it?

is there a place close to the hotel? so we dont have to travel far?
The Muvico is close to the hotel, walking distance. If the intention is to just hang out and drink, maybe catch a flick together (open seating, couches, and drinks lol) then I think its the best bet.

The area centers around a convention center and freeways so there's really little there except hotel restaurants and bars, which we all know are a little $$ and not too casual.

Personally I'd rather have the out of towners experience the downtown scene, which we would need cars/cabs for.  Sham, I like the cab idea too, you're right.  Cabs shouldn't be too bad if we can fit in 3-4 per.  A cab ride each way will run about $30...split by 4 shouldnt be too bad.

I think right now we'll stick with Movico, I'll keep in touch with Maria to finalize by this weekend.  Thank you for your patience!  One more week people! :)

Rum, the train goes directly downtown!
waleeta you got me thinking...

All, if we make it a plan to go to downtown Friday night, chances are we won't be back for the party that night.  What do you all think? I'm assuming everyone is 21+ and wants to see the city more than stay by the hotels. Let me know!

well I have heard the Friday night party aint all that, so I dont mind missing out on it and go check out downtown instead...if there is a train to downtown, we can get it to get there and then cab it back to the hotel later, what does everyone thinK?

and yes I just turned 21 so I am set :angelnot:

Man, how do I answer this question, or where to begin?

This being ABN's 10th anniversary, and being in Chicago where a lot of AVNers would make, I was really hoping I could go. And I still do. But lately I have been having my doubts for many reasons. We shall see. The gathering better continue with or without me, it is not like I am the fun person that everyone waits for anyway! haha

Ashoor you have to come so Michi can come with you :)

You're right Jones, but shami is right, the Friday party usually isn't all that because you still have locals and people coming in, checking in, getting settled etc.  Saturday and definitely Sunday are the best parties.  That's why I chose Friday too as a day.

Shami we could take the train, its the cheapest and most convenient way of going so its an option as well. 

I'll update the thread with the options posted.

Yup, it will take 30 minutes to get downtown on the train. And it's cheap.

Rum the blue line goes to Wicker Park, Bucktown - I think the gang would like either (Wicker Park or Division/Ashland area).  Or you can switch to the Red and hit up Gold Coast, but that's mainly for the rich white people.  That would be one fun a** Friday night.

Oh, and for the ladies, if you want to go to some really insanely awesome boutiques - blue line all the way from your hotel to the area in Chicago which has tons of 'em.

Well, I'm up for whatever. As long as we have a good night.  I need to know where we are going so i can decide what to wear.
Thanks for taking the time to put this together :p
