Sunday 2/19 Swap- Meet & Greet


I think it might be fun to meet prior to the Swap. Then hotel is in/attached to a drip plaza. In the opposite corner of the lot is a US Bank. I'll be parking there. I drive a Black 2010 Scion XB. Basically across from the bank is a Dunkin Donut shop.

I'll be there around 8:00 am. I thought maybe between 8:00am & 9am Meet & Greet at Dunkin Donuts?

I plan on being in line at 9-9:15. Those that have been to a swap before understand why

After the Swap if anyone wants to stop by Aquarium Adventures I'll be happy to head over that way. It is very easy to return to the major highways from there. They are getting a Plant order and Amano shrimp in today.

Other ideas for the group welcome & appreciated.

No table this time Frank?

I'll meet and greet, but I won't get there until 9:30ish... I don't want to wake up too early

Aquarium Adventure usually gets their plants order in on Thursday nights. I always swing by the Bolingbrook one on my way home from work and they are usually unpacking all the plants and I get first dips usually. It's kinda nice

Damn. Oh well, there is always next time.

I would like to get a table eventually, I just need to get all my plants growing first before I could do that

Isn't there a family restaurant in the parking lot? Pancake house type place?

I'm gonna park by you as that's where I usually find a spot too. AND it's close to the ATM in case I need to run and grab more $$$ (if the wife allows it since she's coming with me this time)

Larcat - Yes, I was just thinking with people come from various places with various arrival times, Dunkin would be easiest. I'm up for other options.

shinycard255 - I like to park there as closer to the hotel is kinda crazy.

Only reason I'm getting there a little early is because I'm meeting with people to exchange plants and shrimp with. Otherwise, I wouldn't get there until just before the doors open.

But as DogFish said, can't resist the thrill of the hunt... and the good stuff goes fast
