Hotel info will go out today. Got a real good rate and also a couple other options if you so choose.

The regsistration has been real good so far. Just making final orders for some goody bag stuff. Sponsors are all stepping up as well. Even will (should) have a debut item! Cookshack has also said that if folks order a FEC, they will knock off 10%. If enough folks are interested, we could also do a pellet order.

Thanks all. I'll have to have my A-game for the weekend! ;)

Well. I was envisioning 20-25... So if I follow that, not many! But I am going to go check out my location, so I can get a better idea of layout. I was told I would be an idiot if I closed off enrollment for a fundraiser... I respect that top cooks opinion... Even if he did call me an idiot!

So being the best politician that I can be.... I will get back with you after checking my sources!

BTW Thom. I am working with my PR gal. Wait until you see the goody bag give-away that I will be buying for all the students. As you have a couple of my promo stuff that she has done...

I just wanted to thank all the Brethren that will be coming and supporting this special BBQ class. I am proud to announce that the class has officially sold out. I did take a couple extra that pushed me over my numbers. But in reality, we will have raised over $13k for cancer research and to assist those that are fighting this terrible disease.

So I want to thank the Brethren, Mike and Beth Wozniak, **** *** BBQ Sauce, The ********** *****, ******' **** BBQ, ****'* ******* *******, ***********.com, C********, ********* ****, ***** ******** *****, Uncle Bub's BBQ and lastly the cancersuckschicago.com BBQ team for the donations made to this event.

Some names were redacted to protect those that are coming to the class....

I am so excited - 2 days left. This is also my first trip to Chicago so I hope my GPS is right.

Weather looks nice for the weekend.

Feb 19 Friday
Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the low 30s and lows in the low 20s.

Feb 20 Saturday
A few snow showers. Highs in the low 30s and lows in the upper teens.

I don't know what I am looking forward to the most, legalized shigging or meeting a bunch of the Brethren. Either way - I'm ready!!

Are you staying at the Clubhouse Inn on Thursday night? There isn't any of the classic Chicago deep dish places very close to the hotel. Maybe Scottie can recommend something. There is a Connies Pizza on Ogden Avenue in Westmont that is close. i haven't been there in years but it used to be good.

The closest Malnati's full service restaurant is probably Naperville, about 9 miles west of the hotel.

Now.. If you are interested in something else, there are a couple of very good restaurants in Westmont, but not classic Chicago stuff.

Bohemian Crystal - Just off of Ogden Ave in Westmont. I think this is ne of the best eastern european restaurants in this area. Great food, large portions and relatively inexpensive.

Chinese Kitchen - a couple of miles south on Cass Avenue from Odgen. As the name implies, chinese, but good chinese. I couldn't find a web site so I linked to the Yelp review page

Katy's Dumpling House - In a strip mall on Cass Avenue just south of Odgen. It is a small place but good dim sum. I couldn't find a web site so I linked to the Yelp reviews.

I'm not sure if I can get away or not, but if you end up at Malnati's in Naperville I may be able to sneak over for a bit, but don't base your decision on me. I'll PM my cell number just in case you need someone local.

I might need some good Chinese carbs on Saturday after all of that meat.
