I work in the Loop and can be at Trader Vic's by about 5:15 to 5:30. Do you guys need help setting up or anything like that? I'd be glad to help out.
Edit - Crap, my wife's new car came in today, and she REALLY wants to pick it up tonight. See you next month.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Trader Vic's and meeting Mrs. Lakesurfer. EsQui's bringing in some paintings and I'll be bringing purses. I can't wait for Zombies!
