LOL!

The unions around Chicago are a lot like the Mafia too. They control the construction that goes on and the pay-offs are unbelievable.

I sneak in and out literally under the cover of darkness... Ny the time they figure out I was there, my job is done. Big Grin

Isn't that just "The Chicago Way"? Kickback central. We have a town or two like that. One of them is Canberra.

You're not exactly filling me with confidence about coming to Chicago... Undecided

I agree, in the early summer during the Taste of Chicago, it is one of the most beautiful downtown cities. They have done a great job fixing it up. We were there for my wifes CLE and stayed at a hotel right on the river, back side of hotel is virtually over looking it.

Got a reasonable hotel on E Ohio, I think, not far from the pier. Can't wait.

Still ICRI can't tell us where the course is!

Ohio is a great location... How much is the hotel?? Under $150 a night?

You betcha JD - $120- ish p/n. It's just around the corner from my boss's favourite pub- Timmy O'Tooles. I hear it's a downstairs drinkery, so I expect to see Ted Danson and Shelley Long there.

Well Chicago is nice, more so without jetlag!

Although I know nobody here, I've scored 3 tix to a Cubs game (don't ask!) If anyone who's at ICRI wants to go, let me know!

How in the world did you get Cubs tickets??? Smile

Sorry I haven't connected with you yet Pat, I tried to call and got a message that your number isn't accepting calls at this time. I will try again tonight... When you called the number came up on my phone with an extra digit! The last 4 numbers came up as 5 numbers Huh 14687 is what shows on my phone... So something is wrong there...

I am running a Bobcat all day today and then working Monday and Tuesday, but I'll figure something out and meet up with you later this week.
