    I like it as well, they serve a very good burger, lots of different beer choices, and they are VERY flexible with large groups. Most times the waitstaff is willing to write individual checks which is a plus as Shoeless Joe's is an iDine place, so get yer miles!

    Perfect so if anyone needs a ride let me know. Also I avoid Higgins/Mannheim with the construction so which way can we enter or should we. I recall Mannheim is no left turn right?

    Correct, if heading north on Mannheim, no left turn off of Mannheim.

    Two suggestions if traveling north on Mannheim, turn left on Higgins (72), or go past Higgins & turn left into hotel just north of Higgins/Mannheim, then turnaround.

    Easy access off of Higgins from both directions.

    No Chicago for me at this time, though any event involving 'the Willie' is a must attend. A great time to all.

    I should be landing at ORD around 4:30pm. The plan is to work for about an hour in the Admiral's Club T3/G, then drive my car parked at ORD garage to the event.

    I'll be happy to guest anyone arriving around the same time, and/or drive them to SJ. PM for arrangements. The car seats 5, including me the driver. Return trip to ORD is not guaranteed.

    I don't think we made it to 20, but it was a great crowd. Special thanks to Capt. Denny and Capt. Rogers for keeping 'em stories coming, and to Sweet Willie for putting this together. Great seeing everyone.
