Possible Croatian Chicago excursion

Postby AzizalSaqr » Tue Feb 17, 2009 6:46 pm

I've stumbled onto something that might prove to be a nice little get together for those Bleu Profond members in the states, we could share a room for three days, listen to wonderful music, and eye all the pretty Croatian guys...

July 3-4-5 43rd Annual CFU Jr. Cultural Federation Tamburitza Festival Hyatt Regency, Chicago, IL

I'll post more details as they appear, but, here's the link where I found it: http://www.croatianfraternalunion.org/

I could make that work! I'm a whole whopping hour and a half from Chicago! I'd LOVE to meet up with some of you guys! (gals *snerk*) Add IN the fact that I don't work in the summer...this could be a very good thing. :D

Jen, since you're closer then I am, can you see what the hotel rates would be and if they have info on the event or contact? Also, when we would need to make a reservation by? I'm guessing someone would have to hold the room with a card then we pay on arrival, most places work like that, but the card is never chargeds. This could be very fun, good food too...

I just found out that the July event is a Jr festival...I think we should try for the October one instead, plus, hotel rates will be lower.

Sorry I didn't respond JD...had a BUNCH of stuff going on. ;)

I can still check on rates if you'd like. Only problem would be that mid-October is a BAD time for me (football season), so I wouldn't be able to get there. But I'd still be happy to check on rates for you guys. :D Let me know if you'd like me to! You can always call me while you're there. :mrgreen:

Well...bah...we need you there...can't you miss one football game? It's actually early October though, so maybe before your football?

We'll have to find a cheap hotel close by, the Westin is awful for prices.

LOL, unfortunately, no, as it's just me for medical coverage during football. :D Our season runs late August through the end of October (and into November if we make the playoffs...which we have a shot at this year). As this is my job, I think my boss would frown on me telling him I'm missing a football game to go check out the Croatians. ;)

I'd love to be there, but that time of year is awful for me. :( Sorry!Maybe another time. Maybe they'll start doing ER conventions in Chicago or something. :lol:

I'll tell you though to check out hotels in the O'Hare/Oak Park area. They are usually MUCH cheaper, and the EL runs constantly from the airport to downtown (it's a pretty quick trip, about a half hour). :D
