I'm curious how they would take to bourbon.

I started marking in my plans today. I hope to get there Friday and leave Wednesday-ish.
The Japanese were (maybe still are) the largest market for Maker's Mark.
I'm a pretty big market for Maker's myself. That and all the Pappy I can get my hands on, plus I am probably pretty high on the Michter's and Booker's lists, too.

You should get Kurosaki to bring some of those Shizukus.

Ok, I got us a room. I’m signing the agreement for it tomorrow.

We’ll be holding this at the Westin River North. Here is a look at the reception room. It’s really nice and I’ve been in here dozens of times when it used to be their ground floor restaurant. Big windows and looks out over the Chicago River. It should be plenty of space for us.

Guys,
I've got a five-year anniversary coming up, and wife wanted NYC, Broadway, and all that jazz.
Can Chicago compete? Maybe I can... eh... show her the bright side... :mrgreen: :D :twisted: :lol:

Will there be food and drinks involved or should we do lunch before we show up?

I asked Shiba if he would be interested in doing some sharpening demos if I brought the Hoya down in addition to the Shapton stuff. I’ll let you know what he says. The other guys are pretty good too but Shiba is the master on that machine.

Sorry, what is the Hoya? I thought I knew most machines, but I never heard of that one.

Anyone planning a trek to Mark's store or any ideas of when and how? This might help me finally nail down how long I'm staying and I can start making reservations.

Are most staying at the Westin River North or are you staying somewhere else?

Indeed. That’s mostly why I’m going. I had a blast at his last place.
