Chicago anti-meetups #2.5 (Dec 29) and #3 (summertime)

Postby LSK » Wed Dec 24, 2008 1:57 am UTC

Winter: Several people are in town for the holidays, so let's get together! DOES ANYONE HAVE LOCATION IDEAS?

Summer: I scheduled two Chicago xkcd meets over the last two years - the first had 3 attendees, the second had 4 - let's set a new record :D

The summer meet will be a paper boat launch - take the time to learn how to fold a paper boat, then fold as many as you can and we'll all launch them down the Chicago River.

I know I've been slated to attend at least one of the past meetups, so it seems only right for me to at least claim I'll be at this one. However, I don't know when I'll be home over the summer yet, so that's a bit problematic.

We could always try to organize a mildly impromptu meetup this holiday season (that would be now) before I go back to school on the 4th!

I'd be up for a holiday season meetup as well. Next Monday, maybe?

The museums are always nice - I haven't been to the Notebaert nature museum for a while now. If you're not up for so much walking, though, we can probably find a concert or a performance of some sort, or just get something to eat as a collective.

NE1 interested in an early Nov meetup? Perhaps downtown or out a park for small hike?

Once again, an invitation to any interested Chicagoans to come by the Theobromas Bash at Windycon, on Nov. 12th. Tere's links and such in the Chicago meet-up thread. Perhaps there could be car-pooling!

You can come to the party without being a member of the Convention.
There will be chocolate! There will be whiskey for those of you who are old enough.
All are welcome!

I'll be there at about 930 at the Memorial Theobromas Bash with PAstrychef, hope you can join! PM me if you can help coordinate rides or need a ride
