It's very true when anybody is going in group tour then there is chance to do lots of enjoyment but sorry i can't go with you because at that time i'll not get leaves from my office.

Quoting Wonkerer

Isa, have you guys booked a hotel yet? :)

No. We saw Naomi on Saturday. She and Kris talked about us being able to stay with her for the 2-3 nights. She's also willing to join us again. I've not gotten all the details. I'll get the scoop shortly (zip off an e-mail to her).

I know, I am so not being the perfect party planner this week.

We're also not sure if Kris will have to be in Calgary at that time yet. (Brewery stuff.) I'll be there!

Need to get in touch with Holly too. Anne can't make it due to a wedding.

Sadly, Delta raised their skymiles program to South Africa from 80,000 to 100,000 this year and we depleted all our miles for our trip back to dare they! Of course the rest of Africa remains 80,000. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a last minute cheapy, but otherwise consider me a no. Totally bummed, as I really wanted to come out and meet you guys. Have a fantastic time with LOTS of good beer!

Well then since it looks like no one else is coming, I will figure out somewhere for myself to reside. When is everyone else planning to be in town?

We're getting into town around noon. Haven't fixed accommodation yet (people not responding grrr..) but looking at options around Lincoln Park area at the moment.

G & K, what general area is Naomi in?

I haven't gotten the okay from Naomi yet. I'll call her this evening once she's home. (Their company just got a new contract with Crate & Barrel so she's really busy. I'll talk to her this evening.

BTW - send me your phone number again because I can call. I'll leave my e-mail and TP up until 9pm tonight. Been a long week so going to bed by then. I'm old.

Naomi lives on N. Wood so north side. Everything we've found for hotels have been $160/per night for downtown. The damn NATO Conference isn't until mid-May but hotels have already kept prices high.

Peter, you're probably better with Lincoln Park area. Okay, May may not be as impressed with Lincoln Park Zoo as she was with the San Diego leopard...

I know - we're running out of time and a few who thought they could attend now cant. Okay, more Pirate rum for us...

We could look for a condo or such on airbnb if we wanted to rent something like that together. Multiple bedrooms, kitchen, living room, etc. Definitely cheaper than each paying $160/night. Only issue I foresee is no smoking inside, and possibly parking depending on where.

If you guys shack up with Naomi, then I'll try to find a friend to stay with or such...

I'm planning to get into town sometime Saturday (I'm flexible) and leaving mid-day Monday... probably by 1:00 so I can make it to the gym that night. Pretty sure the gym will be screaming my name by that point.
