Any of you planning on hitting this?

It's in Plainfield, so I expect a few of you have no excuse. If anyone else is planning to go, I'll gladly meet you there.

I asked SWMBO about it - we're questionable at the moment. Of course, I always have the two little monsters as an excuse, but I'm gonna try.

If it's a HBT guy's get-together, my chances are probably better

Guy's day out. Then we can make an Illinois Pale Ale as a group-brew.

DAMMIT. I'm going to be in Vegas on the 30th. I'm returning on the 30th, but won't be back until 9 pm. Otherwise, I'd take the 3 1/2 hour or so ride to go. Plus, would love to meet some other Illinois brewers on here.

Oh well, maybe next time.

I like the idea of a group brew.

Plainfield is 2 hours from Peoria. Take 116 to 55 north to 26. Puts you right there in no time.

I'm gonna give it my best shot. If we've got a group going, I'll probably be able to swing it

Gonna have to wait and see. Work has a bunch of after hours stuff that I have to be at, so it's touch and go as of right now...

Damn, I can't make it and it's right in my own backyard... sort of. I'll be in Rochelle, IL that day for a railroad related thing (my other hobby) with some other model railroaders. Unless it happens to rain that day (it's outdoors), that's where I'll be.

I went to Wine & Cheese by TCC out of curiosity a few weeks ago and found their beer selection to be limited. They do have a good price on La Fin du Monde and have some out-of-the-ordinary selections. But I had hoped for more. If you're driving down from Schaumburg, you might be disappointed. OTOH, there are some good bars and eateries right there within walking distance that might make the drive worthwhile. O'Sullivan's Irish Pub, Front Street Cantina and Lazy Lizard Grille are three favorites. O'Sullivan's and Front Street have a good selection on tap.

For anyone interested, I'm going to Naperville's Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 7th. I go every year.

My parents live in Joliet, so I can always head just a little further down 59 if I need to validate the trip.
