I'm due in to Allentown Friday evening...how many people are making the trip down from Canada anyway?

Maybe we should be having our own meeting! :P

You might meet those UK kids at Chess N Checkers. It is basically in the Hilton Garden Inn's parking lot and would probably be better then the hotel lobby, which does not have a bar but I think does sell alcohol. I've only ever been to Chess N Checkers once for drinks and it was fine. I have not heard good things about it for food though. And it has just three ratings on Yelp...two bad reviews and one decent one. But if it's drinks you're after, you should be fine.

Anyway, that would be my recommendation for you. It's pub-style so it won't be all that unfamiliar to them.

But hey, don't let them drink too much....they have plans for Friday -- both afternoon and evening. Hope they haven't forgotten their duties. Red Face

Really?? That's a shame. It would have been fun but you'll probably get enough of us during the day anyway. Smile

Yeah. I forgot that someone invited Tony and I and a few other artists out to dinner on Saturday night. I would have loved to go to the Red Robin.

thank you Harris for the Chess N Checkers location outside the Hilton Garden

So, for those of us who don't want to sit in their hotel rooms Friday evening
We can meet at the Chess N Checkers
- should we start another thread for this ?

I am not sure what time I will be getting into Allentown, but once I am checked in and have laid out my pajamas I will head over to the Chess and Checkers
Hopefully they have some TV's and I can have a beverage and watch some basketball
any who would like to join me are welcome
I will leave my small box of trades in the car

Hmm....Who is honing in our party? Big Grin Seriously, you could always come afterwards? We won't even be there ourselves until about 9 or so. And it's right next door to the Hilton.

I'd love to make it over to the Red Robin if our dinner party is finished by 9pm. I hear a fun time will be had by all. Big Grin

Sorry, me and Hammer have plans for Friday, but depending how the time goes, we may pop in later.

I won't be arriving until Saturday but I'd recommend the Jack Creek Steakhouse (http://www.jackcreeksteakhouse.com/) for people looking for some good food/drinks. It's within walking distance of the Hilton (in the shopping mall area that's to the left and behind the Red Roof).
