Meetup in Chicago, Dec. 2001 October 31, 2001 8:00 PM   Subscribe

This one's for the Chicagoans: I said that I'd plan the next MeFiChi just so Dan wouldn't have to do it, and I intend to keep my word. So, if you were at MeFiChiI, you might remember me saying something about how MeFiChiII should be at a Rock'n'Bowl. I called Diversey Lanes tonight and found that they rock five nights out of the week... Wednesdays and Thursdays starting at 10pm, and Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays starting at 8pm. It's been years since I've been there, but last time, not only did the DJ happily listen to my suggestion to play some Pixies, he played two Pixies songs to kick off the evening.

I was planning on setting the date somewhere in the first half of December, since November is going to be a busy month for me, so my questions are: a) is early December good for my fellow Chicago MeFi goons? and b) on what day(s) of the week (W/Th/F/Sa/Su) would you prefer this to happen?

a) yes
b) i just got laid off, so any day's fine.

(details on my site)

i'll be there as long as everyone promises to NOT fly planes into downtown new york the next day.

kinda de-railed my mood last month. y'know?

I'm officially in.

Can I use those inflatable gutter blockers though?

Seriously. Still haven't gotten pictures up because of that. I should finish them up.

I'll be in, so long as I don't get lost again grumble grumble - I know where these lanes are, so.... I'll bring my bowling ball. I have one. You think I'm joking.

The only night that I canna do is Wednesdays. The rest feel open as a 7-10 split to me.

you got lost..? i wondered what happened to you last time.

After making the return to Chicago, I will try to attend. I never did get to see any pictures from MefiSeattle I. It's now kind of historical after the meeting place burned down.

patric: I actually drove by the place a few times, but mixed up the addy in my head - and didn't bother to write it down. And yes, I could have gone in... as Dan kindly mentioned, that's what humans do... but I saw roughly two people in the place at the time.

I'm in, whenever, wherever, assuming I don't become a member of MeFiBos in the next few weeks.

so...pick a date and send out that eVite, j-lo. that'll be the only way to get a real consensus.

Anyone got the list of emails to do an eVite? Or should I just grab the list from the last one?
posted by jason at 10:35 PM on November 1, 2001

that last eVite was pretty comprehensive. plus any new 312 or 773's popping up here (welcome to chicago!)
posted by patricking at 9:13 AM on November 2, 2001

schedule is kind of all over the place. count me in if the day turns out right.

i'll actually be back in Chicago for the last 2 weeks of November. A understanably busy time, but keep me on the list anyway.

Okay, got the email list from Dan (thank you thank you!), but I've got a rehearsal tonight for an upcoming reading, so expect an evite or similar device over the next couple of days. Woot!@
