Chicago Auto Show- Feb 4-17

The Chicago Auto Show comes again to McCormick place, and this time it's personal!

 Well, not personal, but opportune, as our lease on our car is about to expire (next month) so we'll be checking out the new cars and seeing what compares. (We drive a Subaru Forester-- in Chicago, I live off an alley, and need a 4 wheel drive vehicle because our alley is rarely plowed.)

If you've got a 4 wheel drive car you love, please let me know in the comments. 

The Auto Show has been around since 1901, and has all sorts of previews, show specials, demos, collections, and out and out fun stuff to see and do. The last time we were there, we walked around a collection of million dollar cars, took a test drive in a Chevy Truck, walked inside a sprinter, took photos inside a crazy race car, and generally had a great time.   I expect this year will be no different.  And we are hoping that the TESLA Truck will be there for us to drool over!

The Chicago Tribune has a great article about what to expect, along with tips on how to get discounted tickets.  (For example, during the weekdays you can bring 3 cans of food to get $5 off an adult admission)

Also Scotty Pippen of the Bulls will be there on February 14!

There are also Groupons available, if you hurry (they are supposed to be ending soon!)
