The title says it all.

In or out?

Without a doubt:

OUT






kidding
Now, I’m liberal, but to a degree
I want everybody to be free
But if you think that I’ll let Rick Santorum
Move in next door and marry my son
You must think I’m crazy!

But somehow when you smile, I can brave bad weather.

I'm back to looking at airfares and wondering which airport. I imagine that depending on what area we stay, one might be more favorable than the other. So far for me, it looks like O'Hare is better for direct flights from Phila.

Talked this over with the Mrs and we are most likely in. We'll be driving down from Minneapolis, so we may drag along a few fellow BCB-er, Twin Citizens.

I want to. I'm planning on it. But it comes down to finances, and I may not be able to swing it. I hope I can. . .

one of the two - i'm giving it some serious thought. it's always around the time of my birthday which makes it somehow more attractive but i know i've shown an interest in the last two and then backed out due to financial considerations so don't count on me. i'd fucking love to be there, though.

IN!

Will fly over the week before to do the tourist thing & visit some friends in Indianapolis.

Is it worth someone who knows the area selecting a 'prefered hotel'??

I don't want to have to drive whilst drunk as a thousand Griffs...

I think that's the idea that is being leaned toward, though nothing has been mentioned. Usually the hotel booking winds up starting in Feb. or thereabout.
I wouldn't mind an idea of which area we're likely to stay, it might also influence my flight decision, depending on which airport is more convenient.
I realize not everyone might have that option. Do international flights all arrive at O'Hare? Maybe that should be something to be mindful of in our accommodations.
I picked up a guide book a few days ago, though I really haven't delved in yet.
