An FT DO is for FT site-members, a DD DO would be a meetup of DDDs (DansDeals Dudes), no?
Fair enough.

3 more spots for the party of a lifetime ;)
Well, if not that at least good steak with good conversation.  And maybe even a door prize or 2...

I'm allergic to NYC. 

My wallet is as well.  Usually it gets significantly lighter after parking 11 feet away from a hydrant (2 tickets in 2 night=$430), or forgetting to move the double parked car the very second alternate side ended, or my brother getting my rented car towed away for parking in a school zone during the summer when there was no school, or another DDF member getting a ticket while parking my rented car with the wheels angled the wrong direction... :P

But you guys are always welcome to come to CLE :)  I've yet to get a parking ticket here in 26 years.

I do come to Chicago on my own volition on occasion.  I have grandparents in northbrook and aunt/uncle/niece as well as cousins in west rogers park.

A slammin' Sammy and some english toffee and caramel bombs are sounding very good right about now :)

Give a heads up next time you're headed this way and see how many chi-town members we have here.
We can do good ole' kens diner, or hit up some shallots sushi...

I'm pretty sure it's not nearly as bad. -for parking that is, I think they may be worse for moving violations.

LA is pretty strict as well, but all the rules are clear. every FH has red paint near it telling u till where u can't park, etc. and u can usually find parking.

I think they have shots for that.

AND now that I know your feelings about NYC, I feel like I need to get a reserved spot for the DO even more.

Interesting. I guess you never park on the street, and forget to move your car or call it in before you go to sleep. I don't know anyone that has ever stayed in CLE overnight that that hasn't happened to

There is no overnight street parking anywhere in CLE, makes the streets look very clean and uncluttered. 
Then again every house around me has its own 2 or 3 car attached garage and many also have a circular driveway so there's not really any need for street parking as there is in most places.

I'm not arguing with the law, I'm just saying from the ppl I know, even those sentenced to life in CLE, still get tickets for it

I've don't know of a single person from here who's gotten a parking ticket in CLE. 

If you're foolish enough to park overnight on the street (when every single block says "no parking on city street 3-6am") then that's your own fault.  Besides that you can call for an exception if you're really desperate for some reason.

Nobody here even knows how to parallel park as there's no need for it anywhere.  Every store has their own parking lot.

Whereas in NYC I'd like you to find me the person who owns a car and has never received a parking ticket.
