Have fun! We will still be on vacation, so I will be there in spirit.

Who wants a fairly quiet time, with lots of opportunity to get to know one another?

Who wants to take advantage of the bright lights in the Big City?

(I'll tell ya, though, my son says, 'If you think you're in a big city, and it's not New York, you're kidding yourself. Just sayin'....)

Lol, grew up 70 miles west of the windy city. My first job after graduating from college landed me 14 miles west of the big apple. (just for fun and of no real relevance, I was born in east LA )

I'm good to go with either. Honestly, depending on where G2G central is, if the prior gets boring, a 15 minute ride(yea, I remember...traffic sucks) will provide the latter.

Honestly though, getting to know the faces behind the names sounds appealing. I can always get to the *big city*. Don't think there would be as classy a group of people tho.

ETA I've never been to a G2G, so this might not be accurate. I've been vicariously watching the going on in the Woodlands though and I'm a little *skeered*.

This is me on both counts. I'm far more interested in chatting with people and whatnot...I just don't want people who don't get to Chiberia very often to feel like they're missing out.

Is that codependent of me...?

I think a good g2g has elements of both in that there are scheduled times/events such as dinners (where you can get to spend time with folks and get to know them) and less structured times where people can choose what they want to do, like see a ballgame, get a pedicure, visit museums, shopping, etc.. Think of it as break out sessions where you can hang with and get to know a smaller group a little better.

The whole group doesn't travel like a pack 24/7 for the whole weekend. And Houston? Well, Houston is a WHOLE OTHER STORY.

Don't be skeered, people. It's all good.

ETA: Dang it! I shouldn't even attempt to write a post on my phone.

I think the reality of Houston is a little closer to Animal House. Just. Sayin.

Well, I was going with the *Houston we have a problem*, but watching from afar, I can probably understand the *Food Fight*, or *Ramming Speed*(thinking JJ and Tred, just wondering who is who in that one).

Yep, loved that movie.

*Thank You sir, Can I have another?*

Side thought. Belushi got his start in second city which was where? Might also be fun to go to the fox valley(river) mall or the state pen in Joliet to get some reminders of that other classic movie, The Blues Brothers.

Crap, now I'm showing my age. I'll just start driving away now. I've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of smokes, it's dark and I'm wearing sunglasses.

I suspect we can find venues that can handle several more attendees....

The whole group doesn't travel like a pack 24/7 for the whole weekend.

My thinking, too. I'm not sure SIers can be herded.

Jrazz & finally - should I list you as possibles?

Any spouses or SOs planning to come who aren't listed?

Woah sisoon, that's a little more enthusiasm than I can handle for my telling you that I'm coming to visit you and the missus.

ETA: Ok the edit at least registered an acknowledgement. It's just going to be me from the Razz contingent.

As for people who have never been to "Chiberia" (ME) I'm down for whatever. Blues Brothers, Heff-a-mabilia, crazy hotdogs, Cubs/White Sox.... it's all good.

That being said - I've been to a few g2g's, and the magic of those is that the venue and/or events always seem to fade into the background because we're having too much fun chatting and goofing off.

Lol, you've been monitoring the Houston thread too!

Anyway, sosrry is a possible also! Her work, my Moms health issues. Possible drive by! Hope to do better.

Experience alert. In some parts of the country, the saying is *it's not the heat, it's the humidity*. In Chiberia, it's not the weather, it's the wind!

Truth!

Still welcome if I'm a Sox fan? Started with Black Jack McDowell. Been one ever since!
