2009 Convention AVN Get Together Thread

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.
haha thanks W, I think I've got my fair share of CTA over the past couple of years :p

Wicker Park/ Division/Ashland is cool, but not so hot on Friday nights, Sat its good.  I was thinking we roll up to a nice lounge in downtown and hang out there.  There are a couple of bars and also some latin (salsa type music) lounges that the crew will definately like. 

As far as dress, I say a little more than casual, but not all out clubby, if that helps lol

Can't wait, one more week!

Sorry for not replying earlier guys, hectin weekend!

Robin, I sent you a text, you dont have to be registered to hang out at hotels, its a public place!  You might have to show your badge if you want to go to your rooms and definately at the parties/events, but those aren't in the hotel anyway.

Dudu, I'll add you to the confirm list with robin & carro

Dalida, The hyatt is actually connected to the convention center.  So your walk to the parties will be much better! lol  Can I change in your room?  hehe  Only thing though, for the get together you may have to walk to us for a change :p

Everyone:  Talked to Maria about dinner.  We understand that its Friday and most of us may have work till 5pm or so.  I was thinking itinerary would be that we go to dinner around 7 or 8pm.  Hang out, then head back to the parties which won't end till 2am.  I am also in the works of getting a limo bus vs. CTA/trains etc.  If you don't know what that is, its basicially a shuttle bus but changed with limo-type seating on inside.  I can arrange a pick-up/drop off schedule which will honestly be the same price roughly as all taking cabs back and forth.  Up to you guys.  I will find out more information about this later tonight and update.

Thread updated.

DuDu, it can be either place.  Usually its where all of the events are held, which is the convention center not hotel.  So you would go there and get your badges.

Dalida,  don't worry I won't crash, plus I know your roomate so I'm sure she won't mind too.  p.s. I got first dibs on the ironing board lol

OnPoint,  not sure but I will definately make a final confirmation tonight/tomorrow.  I'm shooting for tonight.  It's hard to coordinate everyone's schedule :/

Which line goes to George Kabob after I'm drunk and hungry at 4am?
Saddly, there is no line for that.  You can however jump into a cab with a many a  crazy nigerian, who will gladly take you there, if you can get in a couple of words during a lull in his bluetooth conversation with, I'm only assuming, the dethroned prince of nigeria who is looking for a safe place to deposit his millions.
