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.

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...

No Chicago is beautiful.
Our home office is there. Nice people.

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.
The female russian bartender made the best dirty matrini's I have ever had.

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!
RE: ICRI in Chicago - CC Solutions - 04-25-2012 04:22 PM
Ohio is a great location... How much is the hotel?? Under $150 a night?
RE: ICRI in Chicago - Rubensgt40 - 04-25-2012 05:15 PM
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.

I haven't signed up for the class yet, but I'm definitely signed up for the drinking afterwards...

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???
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 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.
