    Vav's seriously a great guy... If I was the one throwing this event, I would have just said f it and cancelled it due to 75% of the posts/questions/clarifications in this thread.

    That being said, glad you're a better man than I! Looking forward to Friday!

    ( my question on page 1 falls in the 25% of appropriate posts :wink: I think :/ )

    I think by this he means.... One Milllion Dollars... everyone should already know if you have a cellar-ed stash like that (or plan to try and create one) the FIRST thing you get are the freakin' sharks, with freakin' laser beams attached to their freakin' heads.

    I will be stopping on or around 11:45 to facillitate my attending the noon session across the street. And if anyone were frying a turkey in the parking lot, i'd have time eat some of that.

    I've always been one for the classics.

    Having said that: Ageist, biased, bigoted, chauvinistic, contemptible, disgusting, narrow-minded, xenophobic, kitten-eating malcontent. Ha-rumph!!

    I haven't been to this Binny's and am planning on coming out from the NW Burbs. Is there ample parking in the lot?

    Parking lot isn't that big...I'm guessing parking will be a madhouse between all the people standing around there and people driving there. I'm also in the NW suburbs but I am probably staying at a friend in LP's apartment that night or el'ing it over at some unholy hour

    theres a fair amount of free street parking in the area but its by best buy and other stores so since its black friday it might be a bit of a madhouse looking for parking.

    Exactly. I have no intention of trying to find parking when there is a (fairly) efficient "L" system.
