Posted By: <b>Julie Vognar</b><p>but I paid off almost all my credit cards, Knouse, Macrae, gave a K to each of my children, bought granddaughter a bike for her birthday--and in general, paid off my debts. So I don't have the dough.<BR><BR>However, I do have 4 credit cards, and want a lot of cards.<BR><BR>So let the rest of us know how it is.<BR><BR> <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Kevin Cummings</b><p>I could not get a free pass out of debtor's prison either (Julie - if you're still doling out thousand dollar gifts to your kids, I'll put myself up for adoption) and part of the fun of the National would be putting faces to names from this board, so <b>pictures</b> would be <b><u>very</u></b> cool!

Posted By: <b>Brian Weisner</b><p>Hey Pete<BR><BR>Great choice! Gibson's is one of my favorite Chicago hangouts. The food is excellent and the people watching in the bar and on the street is great. I'm headed to Vegas in the morning so I'll miss the party. Everyone have a great National, and order your steaks medium rare. be well brian<BR><BR>PS If anyone gets a craving for Buffalo Wings, Cheesburgers, or cold beer, try Yatzees in Lincoln Park. It's a great local joint. Also If you spend all your money on the first day, check out the awesome museums & Gallaries in town, ie field museum.
