Default Chicago boat show and a dinner anyone?

Is it that time already? The Chicago boat show runs January 1-5 for 2003. I thought I would see if anyone would be interested in an OSO gathering in conjuntion with the show. Maybe somewhere within a cab ride of the show? I plan on being away for New Years but would be happy to help plan if anyone has suggestions. Maybe we should just have an OSO New Years Eve/Boat show party

Default Ribs within walking distance

There is a rib place walking distance that is incredible. It looks like a dumpy little place, but the walls are lined with famous people who have been there. I would only go in the daytime since it has the kind of window that they put the food in and spin it around made out of bullet proof glass. I don't remember the name, but if you walk towards downtown it is in a dumpy strip mall the first that you come to. It is only a half block from McCormick Place.

I was there last year and met a few people
Missed the dinner
When I was talking with Rich from Innovative marine he was talking about how the vendors are hating the new years opening
I was actually thinking just last week about going.
Maybe doing Chicago for New YEars sounds crazy enough
But have no idea who, what or where to go.
Make if to the show on the first and count me in.
I have to be back home to work the night of the 2nd

Hey
Keep me in mind, if I get all of my projects done by years end I may find time to go this year.
I would love to meet everyone for dinner.
Perhaps at Ginos for pizza?
Or even at Ed's thats always a fun place.

Hey Obnoxus if you are going, it would be nice to meet you before I get the boss up the river.
