I made the mistake of going to the show on President's day last year. I thought since it was a Monday it would be slow, big mistake. The place was swarming with kids. Nothing like waiting in line behind 10 year olds to sit in a camaro.

I'll be there for press week! Not sure about the public show, any places in downtown Chicago I should check out while I'm there? (ie good restaurants, bars, or any MUST SEE recommendations) It'll be my first time visiting the windy city.
