    October 1996 Trip

    by grandmaR Written Jul 11, 2003

    Fondest memory: The Hampton Inn had previously given us transport to the OTI, but had decided to stop doing that. However someone who didn't know that had taken my reservation and they were going to honor it. But this was the last time that I could stay here.

    10-20-1996 - Husband dropped me off at the airport. Got a bagel sandwich $7.33

    Stayed at the Hampton Inn. The Hampton will take you to local restaurants for dinner, but I don't know exactly where I went on the 20th.

    10-21-1996 - Free breakfast at the Hampton Inn.
    Lunch and snacks at the Jewel-Osco $15.38.
    Dinner $24.10 (don't know the name of the restaurant- maybe Marias)

    10-22-1996 - Free breakfast
    Lunch at Arbys
    Dinner - Ristorante Pasta Vino $15.45 (I can't find a current site for this restaurant, so maybe it is no longer in business. I know a couple of us business travelers got together and went as a group, and one of them knew a waiter at the restaurant. One of the gals gave us her receipe for holding the line on weight while traveling and eating in restaurants. She ordered only an appetizer and a salad.)

    10-23-1996 Free Breakfast
    Lunch Chung's $6.95
    Jewel-Osco $23.93
    Dinner $25.36

    10-24-1996 Free Breakfast
    Lunch at airport - Perry's Xpress - chicken pita $6.44.
