Good morning Chris,
Don't forget, you still hold possession of the annual pass, so you don't have to worry about admission, plus, it is economical to stay at the Holiday Inn at just $ 64.95+ tax nightly. The hotel code is CECE, with the dates of the show. Phone for hotel reservations is 1-630-665-3000.Please reserve soon as the block closes soon.
If you are renting a car,or driving in, there is FREE PARKING at the hotel, and the show is inside the HOST hotel, so no worry about coming in and going back out again.
It is a great area to visit, There are plenty of restaurants, of all different types, including one of our famous White Castle's, as well as a couple of very good steakhouses, plenty of shopping not too far away, and a Brunswick Bowl right next door! Don't forget the entertainment district too!The charity breakfast on Saturday morning for only $ 15.00 per person for a buffet, plus everyone attending the breakfast will get a special treat, while supplies last! So, sign up now! A portion goes to the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation!
During the weekend, there is a charity auction- with a ton of artwork, autographs, some terrific Trading Cards, and some other cool things!
Yes, Iggy is correct, it is our very LAST show, and would very much like to see you as well as many of the other folks who haven't been in a while or have never had gotten the chance to experience Chicago, the Chicago Expo way.
There will be special promo cards, one exclusive at this time, and support from various manufacturers.
Take care, and hope to see you all very soon!
Paul

Since you brought up food... is there any authentic Chicago pizza in the area? 'Cause I really need to try some on this visit. Smile

It's about 15 minutes south of the hotel. I recommended the place last year to out-of-towners and these seemed pleased.

I just waded through a few of the on-line reviews. They seem to do deep dish right. They lose points on service and other stuff unrelated to the quality of its pizza.

OK, another way to support Treasure Chest AND get cool cards too! Bouncey

I'm going to bring a my back stock of Scifi Cards promos. P1 to P9, and 2 correction cards.

For a $2 donation to Treasure Chest, you can get 1 card. Limit of 2 of each card per person (one for you, one to trade. I understand how that works). Thumb Up

So, it's a perfect way to fill in some holes in your collection and support the great cause too.

Besides pizza also consider checking out the Italian style roast beef and polish sausage. The Chicago area has a large population of Italian and Polish Americans with plenty of good food from both!

So true! Liz found us a small family run Italian place not too far from the hotel when we were at C2E2 this year. The food was great and we ended up eating there every night. I almost always will give a local restaurant a try over a chain store.
