    Not to try and make this an issue but... I've eaten there with my family before. I really don't see anything wrong with it.

    I think the comment that HOOTERS shouldn't be mentioned is BS. Everybody knows about the place. I think everybody is old enough here to know.

    Its not like I went in to any detail about the place. Sal you took care of that

    I shall ask politely again, stay on target.

    This thread is to be about the Toys and collectibles show and who can attend that function only.

    Since there is an obvious disagreement of thoughts concerning where to eat afterwards, please, again, let's just discuss this after the show.

    I will apoligize (sp?) if some think I'm taking the moral high road, but I find the public explotation of women demeaning and can not and will not support it. (Again, yes, I've been to them before, but that was 10 years ago and I was a different person then. Through time I have changed and now find such establishments demoralizing, and to women in particular.)

    Suffice it to say that I will not be going there afterwards. My personal feelings aside, I am in a commited relationship and would find it reprehensible of me, if I were to go to such a place. We all know what this place is known for and it's not the chicken wings. If members from this group choose to participate, I cannot stop you from doing so, and wouldn't try to, but for the sake of the minors on the board I suggest we maintain a level of decency and morality on the boards.

    Please, no more discussion about this.

    Only the Toy and Collectible Show.

    Thank You
    ?Sal

    Rebel ~ what general area are you coming from? If it's on our way - you could follow us. If that would make things easier for you.

    How old are your kids?

    Hey Sal, and anyone else planning on attending, I'll see you there Sat. A.M.

    I'll probably run the show floor probably in less than 2 hrs. Of the 2 shows(Spring and Dec.) The Dec. show is usually a little better, but with Ebay and everything, the shows(and not just this one) just don't seem to be what they used to be. I used to do a ton of trading/buying/selling/etc. but now, I usually pick a few things to grab. Usually not a ton of "steals" like there used to be.

    The last few deals I got at the show were for some promotional items I got cheap. Also a few Hamilton plates to add to that part of the collection(I think I got them for under $10/plate-not too bad) and last year I got a nice Pepsi promotional packet that I was looking for and surprisingly someone had the whole kit at the show. Tronzo lucked out this year, while we were all manning the pswcs booth at C2, he came back Sun. AM caught the show and snagged a blue snaggletooth for $5!!!!!!!!!! That things was as mint as can be....it's like a $140+fig! Lucked out!

    Mrs_Jedi-

    I'm coming from Steubenville. I have been to the expomart a couple times, but the hubs always drove. I guess I can get directions from mapquest or have him write them down for me if I get to come.

    My kids are 12, 9 and 2...yours?

    I plan on sending my info to you, but I will probably message you with it. I've never used that feature before, I'll figure it out ;).

    Thanks for the offer of following. Are you on the way for me?

    I can answer for her,RD.Um,firstly we're in the opposite direction from you,Kittanning to be exact.So for us and you,the Expo is "meeting in the middle".Sounds to me that if you get on Rt.22 you can get right to the Expomart,as 22 passes right in front of it,can't get much easier than that.
    To send a PM,just pick & click a name from the blue header at the top or click on a username and their profile comes up,in there at the top should be an option to send PM.
    Our girls are just a lil' younger....um 4.5 mos and 4.5 yrs.
    Anything else that I may be of help with,just ask...

    We haven't really set any "official" time to meet. I posted the times it's going to be open and how much. Anyone have a particular time in mind to meet? Let's hear some ideas and decide on it. If noone cares what time then we could just leave it open.

    Jedi-

    Thanks for the info. As I said, I've been there, but never did the driving so I didn't pay attention. And since I'm not from this area like my husband, I don't remember the names of places and/or roads. I know, I'm lame.

    You're kiddies are lots younger than mine. I'm old, lol.

    And Stina...4:30? I thought the show ended at 4? Did I misread? Sorry if I did, I'm still learning.
