CHICAGOPEX - Itasca, IL USA Nov. 21-23, 2014

CHICAGOPEX is my big regional show to attend each year, affectionately known as "The Budgetkiller". It's a huge show, and the facility is GREAT.

Tip to anyone looking to book a room at the show facility, do *NOT* use the "show rate" of $117 per night. Use the Birth Year promotion listed on the Westin website (code 'PAYAGE'). That makes it $89 for the first night, and the rate for the second night is the last 2 digits in your birth year (must provide ID). So in my case, since I was born in 1966, it's $89 for the first night and $66 for the second night.
