Jessamyn will be in our fair city near the end of August. Let's plan a meetup for the evening of Tuesday, August 22. Say, 6:30 p.m.?

She will be staying in Lincoln Square, so perhaps we could meet up at Hopleaf again? It's not too far from Lincoln Square, and from what I heard about the last meetup, it was a lot of fun. If you've got another suggestion, by all means share!

You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, etc.

Cool! As a Lincoln Squareian, I welcome you to our fair city.

She sees me when I'm sleeping? Hmmm.
She knows when I'm awake? Yea?
She knows if I've been bad or good? Hmm, yes!

Where's my prezzie, Santamyn?

Has jessamyn agreed to a meetup or simply mentioned that she will be in Chicago? My guess is she will agree, but you sure have put her on the spot now, eh? :) Either way, don't print the posters or sell tickets until you get the okay.

You know what you need to do.

What about 2006 USA Tour T-shirts?

I agreed, that's why Megan is posting. Tuesday is good for me!

Just a subtle suggestion to actually meet in Lincoln Square somewhere (Maybe the Daily Grill?) besides the HopLeaf which tends to get overrun with people. Just a thought.

What terrapin said.

See? I *told* Jess she was a celebrity last week, and she didn't know what I meant...

I'm in Logan Square.. not terribly far.. I may just stop by!

What's with the jessamyn world tour anyway? You doing book signings? Signing printouts of metafilter's cover page, or what? ;-)

Weird --- I live in Chicago and I've wanted to go to a meetup for a while now, and I'm going to be out town for basically the entire rest of the month except the night of the 22nd. I think that's Divine Providence.

Who's that singing in my head - The Ronettes?

I'm in!

Hopleaf should be fine on a Tuesday, but the Daily is nice, too. There's also the Grafton Pub in Lincoln Square.

I'm happy with any of the places you guys suggest - I don't know the neighborhood very well and Hopleaf just popped into my head. I'll let the neighborhood folks duke it out for a location.

hopleaf is good for me and i like the grafton. i have no familiarity with the other place.

You know, I can always count on a Chicago Meetup to happen a week before or a week after I'm in town. Curses.

Cool! I will try to make it, though I am not sure how long I'd be able to stay.

I'll be there. I don't think they'll let me bring slush in, though.

What's with the jessamyn world tour anyway?

I'm doing a really stupid(mostly)fun amount of workish travel in the next several months (library related talks, this sort of thing) taking me to DC [this week], Chicago, Madison, Honolulu, Fargo, Portland, Lansing and jehu knows where else.

Is anyone still checking this thread? If so...Hopleaf, Tuesday, 6:30. I'll repost this afternoon.
posted by MeetMegan at 10:46 PM on August 20, 2006

i am! still checking, and still planning to be there.
