Let's have a Chicago meetup. March 2, 2006 11:17 AM   Subscribe

Anyone wanna do a Chicago meetup? I've never been to one and don't know what the procedure is. I was thinking Quenchers, at Fullerton and Western. Don't care when, really so long as it's before March 16.

The 9th is tough for me as I have a conference down at the Conrad Hilton all that week. But I will hold my peace if it works for everyone else!

So what is the procedure? Does it have to be at bar? If not, does anybody show up?

I just passed Quenchers today! I'm moving near that area possibly... looking at a condo near North/Western...

Any thoughts from you guys on that general region, safety wise? It's technically humboldt park-ish though right down the street from bucktown...

it'd be easier if the place was near a CTA stop (there's a bus to fullerton/western, but I'm not totally familiar w/ the area). anytime next week is good for me.

twiggy: I live a couple blocks from there (Maplewood and Fullerton). I haven't had any problems. Where are you looking?

Alternative venue idea: Margies?

margie's looks pretty easy to get to. the 9th or another night?
posted by ejaned8 at 8:55 AM on March 6, 2006

Whenever. I can't do the 11th, though.

Sooo...are we doin' this or not?
posted by MeetMegan at 12:47 PM on March 7, 2006

Ok. Margie's Sunday 12th at 3pm

(Last minute alternate: Margie's 8pm on Thurs 9th.)

Ok, it's OFFICIAL. It's ON! Margies! 12th! 3pm!
I'll be getting the Astronaut.

Incidentally, anyone going to the Belle and Sebastian show? I'm going to the one in Milwaukee. They're playing Chicago the night before, I think.

So how will we recognize each other? Nametags? Giant MetaFilter sign?
posted by MeetMegan at 7:05 PM on March 11, 2006

I'm not sure. Maybe come in whistling or something.

WTF? Bummer. I was there. Was anyone else? I had a big green hat on.
posted by rbs at 1:54 PM on March 12, 2006

I totally missed this post! Boo! I would have come!
posted by SisterHavana at 6:17 AM on March 13, 2006

well, i wasn't available on Sunday, which is why i suggested the 9th! a stop at margie's, however, is never wasted, even if no mefis could get themselves there on time.

I'll try and put another one together as soon as I get back from Costa Rica (leaving Thurs!!)

dang... this is what I get for never checking the gray. We need some sort of notification system for these things.

Well, maybe next time.
