Who's Going to Chicago?!? - 7/21/07 - FINAL UPDATE PG 1

Post by LonePalm1 »

CHICAGO - 7/21/07

The Time has come, the walrus said and little oysters bowed their heads. MY Twain of thought is loosely bound, I guess its time to mark this down.

We've have 68 BNers attending (plus all their friends and family)!


- FAQ -
Q: Is tailgating allowed? How early can we get in?
A: Yes, Jimmy Buffett is allowed special permits from the city of Tinley Park to allow tailgating. The venue has suggested a 3:30 lot opening, however from past years experiences we find the lots are usually open by 1:00-2:00pm.


BN Meeting of the Phans

The BuffettNews group will have 2 meeting places this year. Show up at these times so we can get a big group picture!
1:30pm - Holiday Inn Pre-Tailgate Party - To the right of the stage. Beach bum band starts playing at 1pm.
4:00pm - Tailgating - mjeischen (Matt) will be having a pretty sweet tailgating set-up. We will meet matt's "Paradise Lounge". This should be pretty easy to spot with sand, the lounge, and flag poles with 2 pirate flags and a key west flag flying. Matt is on the cell phone list. Call him when you get there to find where exactly he is located.

What are you weekend Plans?
LonePalm (Mindy)
Friday - We are coming into town Friday around noon. We are staying at the Windy City Camp ground and plan to hang at the beach, swim, drink, and sit around the camp fire friday night. (Unsure if we are attending mac yet)
Saturday - Wake up. Sit at the beach, drink bloody mary's. Head to the Holiday Inn for pre-tailgate festivities, meet up with BuffettNews crazies. Head over to the Parking lot around 1:30-2pm. Set up. We plan on dressing as the 4 pink flamingo sisters. We will try to get on Parrotvision again. Grill out. Walk around, and socialize, look for other crazy BNers.
_________________

V-town Fin Truck (Dave)
Friday- arrive at windy city camp ground maybe around 7. Set up tent and drink beer, maybe not in that order.
Saturday- Find someone that seems to know where things are, and follow them. Drink beer. Maybe not in that order.
Sunday- Point the truck back east and begin to prepare for Cincy on thursday.
_________________
EJR ((Ellen)
Cubs game Friday, followed by Mac concert
Saturday-expect to be at HI preparty before heading to the venue in the afternoon.
Given the restrictions of not having refrigeration, or being at home, we could use some suggestions of what to bring to help out all you folks we plan to hang out with.
_________________
habourgirl (Tracy)
Friday going to Mac
Saturday - heading to Holiday Inn and then will be heading to TP around 1:30 or 2. I'll just be bringing myself... I'll be wearing a lei. HAHAHAH... Oh, and I'll have my jungle juice probably, and will be bringing some of my veggie burgers and will be commandeering a grill. I'm flying out here!!!
_________________

_________________
PalmTreeGal (Nicole)
We live here so at home Friday night.
Saturday - Holiday Inn to see BBB and then over to premier parking not sure what time. We need to get there at a reasonable time b/c we don't have tickets yet (I'm hoping a certain chicago bound person got my pm and this won't be a problem for at least a few of us).
Sunday - recuperate and prepare for Indy on Tuesday!

_________________
mikimouse1268 St. Louis
We get to Midway about 5:30 pm on Friday. Should be so fun traveling to TP at that time! We're at the Hampton in Tinley now, courtesy of Big Phan... still hasn't been fixed on page 1.
Going to see Mac on Friday, going to the Holiday Inn on Saturday as early as we can get there! Sunday we'll be seeing some old friends (non PH variety) that still live in Chicago.

Friday ~ driving to Chicago, shopping, possibly tracking down the new Harry Potter book at midnight with my mom (nerd alert! nerd alert!), not sure what else
Saturday ~ Probably going to be at the HI tailgate, definitely getting to the parking lot around 2, tracking down BNers, having fun
Sunday ~ A little sightseeing then coming back to Michigan

I know I just called. The only thing I could book for 4 adults was a King Parlor Suit. They wanted $295 a night for it! Looks like we are going camping again this year.

Alpine and Tweeter tickets go on sale the same day and only 4 days before Cubs tickets.... I am going to be broke for a few months!
But I will definitely be at both shows. Can't wait to hang with more BNers at the shows!
