OK, for real this time, I've set up Metafilter Chicago I. Come! Eat! Drink! Play pool! Win valuable cash prizes!
Since there is a Seattle meeting brewing, I'd like to get a Chicago Metafilter get-together in the works. One possibility is a poetry reading being given by jason on 5/11, but then again we wouldn't get much of a chance to talk. (There was some talk of one last year that didn't get going, so I'll dig up that e-mail and send it around with a pointer to this thread.)
