Thumbs up Chicago Dinner with Captain Denny, Friday, December 17!

I posted Captain Denny's December flight schedule earlier this evening on my blog, and one of Captain Denny's trips starts in Chicago on December 18. Since he has never had a FlyerTalk dinner in Chicago, we figured the night before might be a good time for a first.

Dinner will be at 7:30PM at Harry Caray's Rosemont (not far from ORD). So far we have a reservation for 20, which can be adjusted up or down depending on interest.

Update: Not only will Captain Denny be attending, but the amazing Captain John McFadden will also be there. He's another legendary customer service pilot. I had the pleasure of flying with him back in June (by chance), and wrote about my experience here. You won't want to miss this!

Is Denny on FT? If so, what's his handle? I was so busy during SMDII that I didn't get to really interact with him.

Put me down as a "maybe" ... but won't know for sure until that afternoon (i.e., will depend on dining location ... and what kind of success I have going for a VDB that afternoon).

He doesn't actually have a FlyerTalk handle, though I'd say he's as much of a FlyerTalker in spirit as the rest of us.

Put me down as a maybe depending on when and where as I'll be flying in from PDX (or return from another trip depending on my travel schelude).
