In reply to # 1991246 by B-racer I'll be there... arriving Fri night. We have LOTS of good food to eat, and hunt down microbrews that can't be found in MN. Hopefully the guys at Hot Doug's won't be gone on vacation this year...

And if I get lucky I can find new signage for the shop???

See if you can find a place that has some Half Acre. It's a local brew, super good stuff. There's always Goose Island, too.

If you are into burgers, try Kuma's Corner. For Pizza, try Piece or Giordano's.

Just had Hot Doug's for lunch today, I love that place!!!

I'm not vending this year - I have too much fun buying!!!! Although if you vend you get in early...

Rick, I'm looking for metal signs (Lucas or other) if you get a chance to look around before I can get in the door... I think you have my phone number (cell). winking smiley

I'm coming with 66MGBguy (Chris) liek every year. Don't know if its in Brian's plans?

We had Giordano's last year. Doug's was closed for vacation. Thinking about Bert's this year? Or Geno's East? Or Lou Malnati's? Probly hit the doughnut Vault too. Have to hunt down Half Acre and bring some Surly for the locals who can't get it!

I can't stand Giordano's, it's generic Chicago Style pizza. Go Gino's or Malnati's, both of which have been around since the start of Chicago Style pizza. Or head down to Oak Park to Geppetto's, my personal favorite deep dish.

If you are willing to head into the city, try Revolution Brewing at 2323 N Milwaukee (1/2 block south of Fullerton Ave), fantastic beer and really good food.

Gale Street Inn, which is also on Milwaukee, but farther north at 4914 North. Fantastic ribs and more importantly, a parking lot.

Half Acre is on Lincoln Ave just south of Lawrence, but it's beer should be available at most good liquor stores.

Jeff, as you slide through Madison, you can get excellent brews.....

I wont be here, or there. Have fun. If you take your truck, wanna haul some shock cores back?

You might need the ballast, the way the weatherman's talking. Last year was ice... this year snow and ice.

Now you're talking.

We can use the girly-boy beer as a doorstop.

Our mancations has so far included stops at Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza, donuts from the Doughnut Vault, beer from the Half Acre brewery, hot dogs and kangaroo sausage from Hot Doug's, beef and beer from the Rockwood Tap House, and a stop at Frank Lloyd Wright's house for a bit of culture. They're going to have to roll us out of Chicago.

Sorry Jeff.....Rick says "Mancation" is a Servicemarked term and you are not allowed to use it without prior permission and franchise fee.
