    Parties?

    Any news on who might be throwing this years parties?

    Just booked our flights to head over again this year (some of us from as far as New Zealand) and trying to work out what we're going to do with our week... including the nights.

    Sounds good. Vegas was cool with you guys, so hopefully you can cause some fun in Chicago (which I find a little more boring)

    We are all booked up... plan is to arrive in Chicago on Monday, July 28th and leave Thursday, July 31st

    Jeff, always a pleasure partying with you guys!

    Mr Russell, I am still recovering from our partying in London last month. Can we please try and do the Chicago partying on a budget? Everytime I go partying with you it ends up being insanely expensive... not that it is my fault or anything

    Chris, we're gonna have to hang out this time... I'm really sorry I didn't get to spend as much time with you and Matt as I would have liked.

    Plus... me and my "new" vision... I should really be able to enjoy this trip a LOT more now.

    UH-Matt, you're one of the other people that I want to finally meet in person, you stodgy doof! Been giving each other grief for five years... and still no face to face. It's overdue, mate.

    Just remember i might be a moody git.

    That week I will have flown from New Zealand to Borneo, Borneo to Beijing, Beijing to London and then London to Chicago.. possibly with a little trip to Vegas inbetween. Its going to be one crazy week of flights across the world for me!

    I missed that last year. Even after it was my suggestion!

    I think I can get to one this year though.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Im sure there will be a few... Even on nights where there might not be im sure something will turn into one.

    Just go up to the W bar. Seriously STRANGE things have happened, especially on the night AFTER hosting con last year. Nothing more to say

    Also looking forward to the return of the "Flaming Jeff".

    Matt is absolutely right. The beer scooter leads you to some strange places....

    I just met up with Jeff in Atlanta. Couldn't persuade him to show off his fire magic tricks though.

    Maybe next year

    If you're thinking pizza, check out Pizano's. It's Oprah's favorite pie.

    I have reason to believe that Oprah's favorite pie is something with 7 layers of chocolate

    And if anyone wants a good steak while in Chicago, last year we went to Lawry's (http://www.lawrysonline.com/) absolutely awsome!

    Jay recommended this place to me!
