Peoria-area Bogleheads will certainly be in for a treat. Larry's one smart guy; he's forgotten more than many folks know.

^ I was just about to do the same.

I'm planning on attending. Not sure if I'll stay after, probably have the parents with me.

Just happened to see this post now. Excited to go. Larry, if you are looking for somewhere to eat near Bradley I suggest you check out "One World" which is on the corner of University and Main, a block from where you are giving the talk. If you have any requests or questions about Peoria or the area let me know. If you are from Peoria or are already familiar with the area, I apologize for my ignorance. :beer

I didn't get to say hi, but thanks for coming. I enjoyed the talk and I learned a lot. I also felt young in that crowd :).
