*Newest Chicago Meetup* December 3rd 2016, 2pm

Post by theanimal » Sun Nov 15, 2015 12:24 am

Well, I'm guessing the odds aren't good on this one, due to the proximity to Festivus, but I thought I'd throw it out there. I'll be back in the Chicagoland area visiting family from Dec 14-Dec. 28 so I don't have much flexibility otherwise. But I know there's quite a few folks now in and around Chicago so it'd be nice to have a meetup.

Meetup Saturday December 19th.
Time and location TBD.

Any takers?

I would definitely enjoy an ERE meetup, but I will be out of town the week leading up to and following December 19.

Bummer!

We'd be tempted to hop over there but we'll be heading the opposite way that weekend.

I have an ERE friend IRL that says he would like to go. So that potentially makes 4. Maybe 5-6 with GandK.

If that's to be the size of the crowd, we could hold it at my place unless someone else volunteers something more convenient. I'm a 30m walk away from 54th/Cermak (pink). Easier to reach by car from the South than Chicago proper but a hassle for those coming from the north via brown, purple, yellow, and red.

I would, of course, give you low-ball dealer's offer for the book. Is this meetup on? If I am going to attend, I need to coordinate with holiday visit to one of my sisters who lives in Chicago.

It seems that, as of now, we have 7 that are likely attending. Jacob, Ken, 7wannabe5, inchicago, Miss lonelyhearts, my ERE friend and myself. Possibly 8-9 with GandK.

Jacob- Is this a comfortable size for you to host at your house? Or would you like to try and find another location?

Sorry Dragline, I guess video is not allowed. But maybe we can get a sketch artist and a stenographer?

What time will this begin? What is the exact location? If I can make it, I'll be driving in from Indiana, and may need to leave work early if possible.

We may not be able to RSVP until the last minute, unfortunately. We've already had one sitter fall through due to holiday confusion.

I have to bow out. Sorry to miss this one. I'd be interested in a semi-regular Chicago area meet up though.

@7w5, GandK, Ken -

It seems like all of you guys will be coming in through Indiana along I90W?

Just FYI in case you want to arrange some ride-sharing, somehow. I'll leave it up to you to resolve that via PM.
