I hesitate to make any definite plans for Thursday night because I know how my office can be the day before I take a couple days off, but if I can get out on time maybe I could drive out there and we could go out for dinner, or if you guys wanted to get on the train into the city we could go out somewhere downtown. If it's super hot, I may not want to drive though, I need to get the A/C fixed on my car and don't think I'm going to have time to do it before then.

We'll think of something. Sounds like fun, either way!

Hi! I haven't visited here for a while, but I thought I'd check in and see if there is still going to be a meet-up for the linkers? Will it still be the usual Saturday morning in the usual spot?
I'll be there all three days this year! First year that I'll be coming the whole 3 days. I figured it was a special fest this year, with so many coming in that haven't been to the Chicago fest before. I'm looking forward to it!
Let me know if there are any other meetups scheduled. I'll probably be leaving my house about 3:00-ish on Friday, and will probably arrive at the hotel sometime between 3:45-4:00.

Yay! Then we'll see you and YOUR bouffant at the dance party, too!

Oh yeah, I'll be at the dance party for the first time ever, but I don't know about that bouffant!

I'm sad I'm missing a party with some of my favorite things. Beatles, Bouffants, and you guys....

Call 'em up. They're usually pretty accomodating for things like that. If you have evidence (cancelled check or credit card statement) that you paid the sat/sun price, they should switch it no problem.

Yes, that's true. They're very good about correcting problems with tickets. I had something similar happen to me last year (can't remember what it was... wrong day, or missing a ticket) but I called them right away and they immediately sent it out in plenty of time before the fest.

Words cannot express how excited I am for this, especially since there's going to be quite a few Linkers coming this year that I've never met before! Ahhhhhh! I can't wait!

Ordering tickets ahead of time would have been, you know, the smart thing to do, but as usual I didn't. I've bought my ticket at the door every year because I manage to forget to order my ticket (for a lower price, go figure...) every year online If for some reason we sell out this year, I'll still be able to pop in and say hello to you all at the meeting spot, of course!

I might be dragging along my friend Russ this year, so fingers crossed for that. He's not as into Beatling as much we are, but he certainly likes the Beatles and is actually really interested in the event.

call them - they'll most likely give you a sun ticket when you get in.
