        Mr. Maki and I will have to see the exact schedule, but we should be able to at least make it to part(s) of the tour.

                    Plan on being there. I celebrate my 55th birthday that weekend and this will be the perfect present.

                              Mark, so glad to see that you will be there.  But, I do have plans to visit The Farmer's Kitchen even before then.

                                I'm in and I have a +1 ticket, hopefully for the Mr. (however the way his schedule gets, you never know....)
                                Very excited for my first "National" event...LOL
                                Those of you who have never experienced the apple pie in a brown paper bag from the Elegant Farmer are in for a real treat!
                                Best pie EVER!

                                    I'm in with a friend.  This is my first trip.  I was able to purchase on the first day.  Now I need for someone to tell me what's next:  will I get an e-mail?  tickets delivered in the mail? delivered by e-mail?  when will we learn of hotel--name and rates?  I am anxious as you can see.  I also have plane tickets to Chicago.  I am ready to experience my first Roadfood trip full throttle!

                                      Welcome, Lefty66. What's happened before is that there are no tickets, you just show up at the start of the tour and and your name gets checked off the list. If you're feeling nervous, bring a printout of your Paypal receipt. (I felt nervous for the first trip I came on, but I no longer do.)
                                       
                                      I don't know the answer to your question about the hotel, though.

                                        Thanks for the info.  But I feel that I need some details:  what time do I show up and where?--Chicago is a big city.

                                          Hi Lefty - We are working out the details on the hotel, which will also be the drop-off and pick-up point.
                                           
                                          To ease some nerves, the following is some unconfirmed information.  Let me repeat, this is not finalized...!  We are negotiating a group rate at the Holiday Inn Mart, which is in walking distance to some terrific Roadfood.  Pickup on both Friday and Saturday will be 9:30 AM, and we should return Friday night around 10:30 PM and Saturday around 5 PM.  We can't provide any further details without unveiling the surprises along the way.
                                           
                                          Overall, everything is shaping up to be an incredible trip.

                                            9:30???   ChiTownDiner will have led the group on a tour of five or six breakfast and/or pastry shops around town by then.

                                                To get into Hot Doug's on a Saturday morning, one needs to be in line well before 10:00am.

                                                  If I understand correctly, the tour members will have a private, no waiting in line audience with the Dougster himself.  There will be a prix fixe, prepaid menu featuring one of Doug's specialty gourmet encased meats and his famous duck fat fries.

                                                    9:30???   ChiTownDiner will have led the group on a tour of five or six breakfast and/or pastry shops around town by then.

                                                        Not privy to those details, but I've got to assume the tour will hit Hot Doug's as it's first stop so as not to interfere too much with his regular business hours.

                                                          Thanks, Stephen.  I am trying to be patient, but as you can probably tell, I am excited about my first Roadfood eating tour.  I assume we'll get hotel details later.
