Pulled into my driveway after work on Saturday and saw about 50 or so of my friends and family yelling surprise. My wife made a pinball cake and little centerpieces. All of this was coordinated on Facebook, so I had no idea since I'm not on it.
For my present she handed me a printout that said United Flight 407 LAX to Chi ORD
oct. 12 depart 6:48am- arrive 12:54pm
So it looks like were going to Expo. This will be my first time to Chicago and the perfect year to go. Unfortunately the Westin was fully booked up so staying at the Holiday Inn. Oh well. The real bummer is that the Stern Party is now sold out and the wife did not think to buy tickets to it. If anyone has a source for 2 tickets (or even 1) please pm me. I will pay a nice premium for them. Looking forward to what looks like the best expo ever.
