Chicago Accord Meet 2015

So, myself and Ricardo (crkdslider) are putting together a meet sometime this summer in Chicago, IL. It originally was going to be in S.C. (sorry Steve) but that is way too far of a drive for the both of us and we actually have a lot of DA members who either live in or around the Chicago area...so we figured, road trip to the windy city!

If you are interested and can take some time out of your busy schedule/life to come hang out, get to meet one another actually in person and admire each other's cars we invite you to come! This won't be limited to 7G's either - we invite all generation Accord sedans & coupes

We have a thread going in the Meet-up section of the forum. Feel free to follow it or chime in and let us know if you'll be coming!

Thanks all

I'll be in Detroit for the summer but I don't get there until June 14th, then I start work... So I'll likely miss it, but I sub'ed so if anything changes you might see me!

Just a heads up for the first two interested.

I have two sets of Weathertech rain/wind guards for a 7gen coupe I'll be bringing to the meet. Buy me a beer or two and a set is yours. Post in here if you're going to the meet and want a set to use, not resell.

I must of been jacked up when I emailed them about them being broke, as the replacement set they sent me was the exact same (part that goes near mirror appeared to be chipped, but I guess that's how it's supposed to be?). Anyways, went with OEM and now have two sets sitting in my garage that I'm not sending back and will gladly trade for a couple beers.

Names people... you know you want to show up for this event!!! As stated by Ben, you don't need to be a 7th gen, just an Accord (whomever owns the blacked out 8th gen Accord in my area, I want to see it up close). Would be cool to check out other generations is all I'm saying.

BTW, is there an exact date? I need to ensure I have the days off required.

Otherwise, may be bringing more goodies for discount purchase. If I get the civic before this meet I'll be bringing OEM wheels with Blizzak WS80s (less than 300 miles on them) to sell. Not planning on running Z in the winter if I have a winter car. Also have a spare UR pulley and OEM headlights (along with the weathertech wind guards) I'll be dumping if anyone wants on the cheap.

Yes! I'm definitely going up - I'm off that week. We haven't set an exact date yet but we know the week of June 8th works for everybody.

I was thinking how does Friday / Saturday the 12th & 13th work for everybody? I imagine one or two days at the most?

RickBlaine, Carter & I were wondering if you had any suggestions on fun things the group can do being that you live in CHIC? I never actually got to stay in Chicago so I'd love to see the city - taste the food (I've heard of "Chicago dogs" lol) - etc. Also, where's a good place that we could all meet?

Saturday would work for me, or a Friday night as well. There is a lot you can do in Chicago if you want to fork over for parking. I recommend Haray Caray's, Portillo's, Giordano's for food, Millenium park, Lower Wacker Dr, Navy Pier for places to cruise and hangout. I personally live about 45 minutes outside of the city so we can meet up either downtown or somewhere in the suburbs

Hi all, first post. Just picked up a 2015 Accord Sport 6 speed manual in Modern Steel Metallic yesterday. Live in Indy but we're in Chicago every other weekend and this sounds like fun. Our other cars are an 07 Acura TSX with 189k and a 98 Civic LX with 308k!

kev, thanks for the suggestions!! Sounds like fun

I think it'd probably be best to setup more of a suburban place to meet at as city's can sometimes be over populated on weekends and parking / finding each other could be a challenge.

Are there any recreational parks around? We have a bunch of them here in Pittsburgh. (You know, parks with pavilions, trails, jungle gyms, etc.) I think that'd be a cool place to meet and do a photoshoot at!

I'm down with friday night and then meeting up again on Saturday if y'all want. Let's set something in stone because we'll all need to book our hotels soon! I'll probably use Sunday as my drive-back-home day.
