    Thanks, Star. I'll have to see if I can lasso my man into coming to this. It sounds like it's gonna be a hoot

    Come to think of it, I'd probably have a better time with just the girls.

    Located 1.12 miles from the Holiday Inn

    7:30pm
    If anyone would like to skip dinner and go out on the town, the Bulls will be playing a Preseason game at the United Center at 7:30pm against the New Orleans Hornets. Tickets go on sale October 9th and range from $10-$500. They can be purchased through Ticketmaster locations, 1.800.NBA.TIX or www.bulls.com

    Saturday, October 16th
    8am
    Hospitality Room opens (stays open all day for people to relax in whenever they return to the hotel)

    Group meets for sightseeing in the lobby of the Holiday Inn with the choice of three itineraries:
    *Citypass/Museum Excursion
    *Shopping on Magnificent Mile
    *Navy Pier (Fear and Funfest)
    (itinerary details, including transportation, to be released later this week)

    Since all participants are adults, there will not be “leaders” for each itinerary. Instead, you will be provided with detailed maps, transportation information, and information on each attraction and it is the individual’s responsibility to stay with their “group” if they wish to do so. Lunch will be on your own with a few suggested locations for each itinerary.

    Any get-togethers on Sunday will be informal. I’ve been told that there will still be plenty of people in town if they would like to meet to go to restaurants together or more sightseeing. The hospitality room is not currently scheduled for that day, however.

    Noon- For anyone still in town, the Bears will be playing the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field. Tickets range from $45-$315 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com

    Great job setting up the schedule, Stargazer! It's really exciting to see everything all mapped out in black and white. You've done a lot of hard work setting everything up for us. Thanks.

    Looks great! I can't wait to find out who the reality contestants will be...

    Does the room turn into a pumpkin at midnight?

    I'm just wondering if jack-booted thugs are going to crash through the windows and kick everyone out, or if people can continue to drink mingle beyond that time. If they want everyone out of the room, will the hotel bar or some other place still be open? It just seems like a pretty early night is all.

    Although I guess people will have hotel rooms, so that's somewhere to go. Meh. Don't mind me, I'm just thinking in text here.

    And I can always just go home.
