    Default Northern IL people - Wheaton show! Mar. 7 meetup

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I've let myself go to any local shows, but my birthday's coming up next month and there's the All Animal Expo and the Lake County show running the weekend after (7th or 8th). I thought I'd like to drop on in one show or the other, and thought I'd ask if anyone wants to either carpool with me or meet up there, maybe hit a restaurant after or something. Though I'm an old lady, I'd prefer to go somewhere that any age could join in because I know we have some younger members in the area. If anyone knows of any good eatin' places around either show, or if you have a preference of one show over another, speak up!

    I generally go to shows with my husband who is, though he tries, still pretty "yep that suuuure is a lizard," bless his heart. Most of my other friends are ambivalent about herps so I'd love to browse with someone who likewise loves 'em.

    I'd be coming in from Rockford so if there are a couple people on the way, I could pick you up to save gas.

    Essentially I have been really shy about meeting folks from the forum and I'd like to change that if anyone is willing You don't have to reply to the thread if you're unwilling to be seen in public speaking to me, you can drop a PM or e-mail anytime!

    Oh man this sounds like a singles ad or something, I swear I'm not that creepy.

    Usually.

    Well you can go to both, silly XD

    I just wanted to see if anyone else was interested in going and my super special sparkly woo hoo birthday seemed as good a time as any. I've actually never been to LCRS so I don't know how the two shows compare!

    If you show up there and are so hungry for not eating lunch for a month that the little geckos in deli cups start looking like tiny little chicken legs, we are keeping you in the car, just fyi.
