2009 Convention AVN Get Together Thread

This is a thread to start the conversation about the 2009 Convention AVN Gathering.

My suggestion is either Friday or Saturday night...depending on when everyone gets there.  Usually everyone is there and checked in by Friday night so that may be the best time, but it also could be too early for some locals who might work Friday and be there later.

Saturday is a good time too, so I'm more for this option.  Maybe during the day/afternoon, before the party.  There are some restaurants very close to the convention center also some bars a 5 min cab ride away.

I don't like Sunday because its usually too late in Convention time and chances are we will have already seen each other at the party(ies) on Saturday.

What do you all think?

My vote is Saturday afternoon, before party.  3pm-6pm?

***UPDATE*** 08/31/2009

Looks like Friday night is looking good for a quick AVN gathering.

Friday September 4, 2009.  7PM.

OPTION 1:  Muvico

AB,  there is a Muvico very close, walking distance to the hotel... for those of you that don't know what Muvico is, its a hyped-up theatre where you can eat and drink (bar) etc.   Here's the link:  https://www.muvico.com/default.asp?t=210

OPTION 2: Downtown Chicago

Meet together and take the train or other transportation to downtown Chicago to go to some bars/lounges.  Everyone must be 21+ and we will probably not make it back for the Friday night party.  Dressier attire may be required but Friday is more casual night then rest of weekend.

Sham, I'll probably stop by Thursday as well so let me know if you need some pointers or what not... we can start the party before everyone lol  Who else will be there Thursday?

Well I was speaking to one of my friends last night and she said her and 3 of her cousins are driving there thursday night. At first they weren't going and now they are so I'm about 80% sure I'm going now but things could change.

Even if I don't go to the convention I will give you my info so you could contact me when you're in Toronto.

The question is Are U Coming Boss??????????????
Man, how do I answer this question, or where to begin?

This being ABN's 10th anniversary, and being in Chicago where a lot of AVNers would make, I was really hoping I could go. And I still do. But lately I have been having my doubts for many reasons. We shall see. The gathering better continue with or without me, it is not like I am the fun person that everyone waits for anyway! haha

I think a get together is a great idea, i will be in Chicago during convention but i will not be attending the convention.
If there is a get together with all of you there than i will definitely make the effort to come and meet you all  :)
