We should carpool! I'm trying to grab a few fans together.

Plus, you can meet my friend Ben! (If we can find him...)

Yea, I'm thinkin' of trying to get someone to make some "TRF" t-shirts with my handle on the back.

In any event, a quick meet up at the beer garden before hand sounds good. Maybe Anagramking will show up...

I was away on vacation and never saw this post.
I will definitely be at the Chicago show.
I usually see about 3-5 Rush shows per tour, but this might be my ONLY one, so I will bite the bullet and go w/ a broker.

Does anyone know a Legitimate broker in the Chicago area???

If you all want to meet at the beer garden, I'd be up for that too.
Also, I have a friend working on getting a sky box for the show.
You'd be welcome up there too before the show if it comes to be.

BTW, what exactly needs to be done for the presale and WHEN is it????
Thanks!!!

Tin Fish Restaurant

If everyone wants to meet up just for drinks this is the place. Wide range of drinks including the Macallan.

I will be at the Chicago show however preshow meetup is iffy. My Brother in Law is getting married that day and the wedding starts at 3, Rushfreak will not be at the show, hes the Best Man. I on the other hand will be coming with 2 of my kids, my Step Daughter, her Boyfriend and maybe 1 more kid, my Mom and my childhood friend and 2 of her kids and a bunch of other people who can get out of staying the whole time at his wedding reception.

I will also be out in the lawn. All those who can make it out of the reception (oh and that starts at 6!) will all be close friends so we will have a party in the lawn as it has been since 1990. Thats the way it stands at the moment.
Not unless someone can pick me up early for the meetup, I dont drive.

I'm assuming you go to Lockport HS. Good football coach.
How did you get into Rush?
