    I would make the same offer as last 2 years. I will buy the First round for All. If you want me to plan the meet up I'm willing to do so as well. We have done Twin Peaks both the last two years and its worked well because its in the parking lot of the hotel.

    Im Booked, Thursday - Sunday

    We just need to figure out a time for Meet and greet at some point

    #228 5 years ago

    Ive seen lots of talk about Pinside Badges and Lanyards and such. What needs to be done to make these happen? I can offer help where ever I can. Including picking Up all or part of the bill. Anyone have expertise in this? Im guessing 200 Lanyards, and Badges?

    If Someone has a printing Contact that can print these let me know. Might just have to be Fill in with Perment Marker for Name, Custom Printed might be hard. I guess I could print here and Laminate each.

    I'm thinking about having Lanyards made With GEX Logo and Pinside logo Alternating if that's ok with every one.

    Do you have the source file on this or how it was made? I sure could print these if they were like 4 to a page on card stock. I would even run them front and back.. Probably just blank for everyone to fill in.

    #246 5 years ago
    Quoted from Hwawonyu:

    Back in! Made some things work. Flying in Wed late to make the factory tour and have to leave Sat evening for work Sunday. Looking forward to drinks with JJ, McCune and others. Whoot!


    #269 5 years ago

    Yep 3x4 is the most common size I think?

    #283 5 years ago

    Sweet! To Clarify Please print your own badges if you can, I will bring badge holders and Lanyards. If you Don't have a printer or maybe a Color Printer reach out to me and I will try and print them for you. You may have to email them to me in a PDF as I'm not sure I can print your badge using the Templet. Think only the user can print there own?

    Look forward to the event! I will Reply to each of the RSVP's when I enter them into my Spread sheet. If you do not get a reply in 3 days of sending please send again.

    Quoted from Gatecrasher:

    I went to the event page and clicked on the "I'm Going" button but nothing happens.
    Anyway, I lived about 5 miles from the Westin until 2011 and moved out of town. Now I'm in the process of moving back. Don't know if I'll have everything moved up here by show time but will be at the Expo regardless. No booth this year though but will have parts for those who want some without shipping charges.
    I also plan to bring a game to the show. Can you guess what it will be? lol
    By the way, the Chicago steak houses are right up there with any in the country and they are very expensive too but you get what you pay for but the things that really stand out in the windy city are the Italian Beef, Pizza, and of course Chicago Hot Dogs.
    I've lived all around the country and Philly and New York ain't got nothin' on Chicago when it comes to Italian Beef.
    One of my favorites is Portillos where I usually get their Italian Combo (Italian Beef & Italian Sausage Combo Sandwich). Absolute heaven on a bun!!
    Chicago is known for deep-dish pizza but that's not the only kind you can get. The "Chicago Thin" crust is pizza nirvana too.
    My favorite Chicago (Wheeling) Area Pizza Joints are:
    Lou Malnati's
    Ginos East
    Chicago is famous for hot dogs and they are some of the best (Vienna Beef) and most-famous in America but I have to admit that one city rules over Chicago for hot dogs (and it isn't New York or Philly or anything west of the Mississippi).
    The absolute best hot dogs in America come from................... Toledo, Ohio!!
    Tony Packo's Hungarian Hot Dogs are second to none!!!
    The same hot dogs Corporal Klinger (Jamie Farr) had flown into Korea on an episode of the TV sitcom M*A*S*H. The hot dogs are to kill for and the chilli sauce is too. If you are ever in Toledo stop into Tony Packos for the best dog in America.

    Thanks for the Food update. This will help me quite a bit. I will try and pick on of these places.

    #372 5 years ago
    Quoted from Aurich:

    Sorry I'll miss the Pinside meetup, but I'll be wandering around Friday night and Saturday. Doubt I'll have a chance to find JJ for a badge, so I'll make my own or something.
    Just look for the guy in the grey SDTM t-shirt.

    Did you PM me? I have Blanks with me too.

    20 Pizza's ordered.. Lets hope we can sneak them in past the hotel staff =)



    #404 5 years ago
    Quoted from ElCapitan:

    Could someone tell me if the game hall is open to the public all day on Saturday? The schedule on the Expo website is a bit hard to read. I'm taking my son and we were going to leave now but it's hard to tell if the game hall is open when you compare the PDF schedule and the schedule on the main page.
    The main page says it's only open from 1-5pm on Saturday but the PDF doesn't indicate anything like that.

    I think it is

    #409 5 years ago
    Quoted from robin:

    Especially shirts!

    I was going to ask,him to sign my chest but thought that might be weird

    #415 5 years ago

    I can't remember if I posed this or not..

    Thank you to all who came out for the Meet and greet. I enjoyed meeting you all. Also enjoyed seeing all the pinside badges out and around thought out the event.. I tried to say to Hi to everyone I could.

    Ps that pizza was tasty!
