We have just added a page to find information about the local area around the hotel. Lots of links to various sites about Northbrook, Wheeling, Lake County in general.
There are plenty of restaurants around the Hilton Northbrook. Everything from fast food to fine dining. The hotel has a great restaurant, Allgauers, which has quality food at not ridiculous prices. We will publish a list of local restaurants when MEEHU gets closer. Suffice to say you won’t go hungry.
You know that wonderful happy feeling of having home-baked baked goods to share amongst friends? And that exquisite joy that comes from making a something edible that is so very tasty for the tummies of your favorite people?
If these are things that make you perk up, here’s how you can get your baking on for MEEHU!
We’re looking for random tasty treats from you for the snack table during the party (and other random times.)
Items should not require any refrigeration or prep/assembly by con staff.
Home made goodness in loaf form (banana bread, zucchini bread, chocolate pound cake)
Muffins or cupcakes
Food will be served during the Con – it is included in your registration fee!
