Anybody know where to get free tickets? I know dealerships usually do the free ticket thing but I haven't seen anything.

Even with free tickets, I refuse to go to the auto show. So many god damn people that act like tards and bump into you and crowd the fuck out of Mcormick place.

I don't go every year, it'll be a couple years for this year. We'll be going on a weekday, so it shouldn't be bad

I remember about 4-5 years ago, my wife and I decided to take a day off and go to the show during the week. It was madness, just as bad as it is on the weekends. There are thousands upon thousands of people that go. It's just too much of a clusterfuck and I feel us car guys, cannot even get close to the cars we like because people that know shit about cars and just think they are "cool" are on top of them or kids are jumping all over the interiors.

I hope when you go, you and your SO enjoy it and it isn't too crowded.

If you can, get some good pictures and post them up.

Get there when it opens, during the week, and it's a much better experience

Last year I took my girlfriend to the charity night on the Friday before the show opened to the public. It was a bit expensive, but we had an awesome time. The crowds are small and you really get a chance to check out any vehicle your interested in. Plus the complimentary alcohol and food makes for a nice time.

Go on a Wednesday right when it opens at 10am it's wide open cause I would walk the whole show when I used to work the auto show back in the day.

Try the first look for charity. Small crowd, many more cars are opened to sit in...and its open bar! Pricey, but fun.

Also, I've gone on a Friday night about 90 minutes before close and it wasn't bad.

Also, its really easy to apply for a media pass and go on media day. Just have to say you're a blogger. I agree with you, I cannot go when its packed...its miserable.

Just sign up for a media pass. Hell, use TCG as the site. Done.

It's super easy. There's no media presence on day two, and little on day one, so they're lax about media credentials :rofl:

Will most likely skip the Chicago autoshow, since I'll be going to Detroit this weekend for the autoshow there

After last year's lack of enthusiasm for staffing the booth, I figured it was time for a break.
