Go to Chicago
posted July 20, 2015 3:47 PM   RSS

Me and internet fraud detective squad, station number 9 will be visiting Chicago soon and would love to meet some Chicago Mefites -- evening August 8 is probably the best for us. Can you suggest a meetup location?
We don't really know what you do in Chicago! A bar meetup with nice beers and plenty of room to talk sounds good. We will be staying in Hyde Park and using public transit to get around.

I heard Chicago Mefites have the most fun!

First Wednesday of every month is the Chicago meetup, and that's the 5th if that works also.

What do you like to do?

Amazingly, we were supposed to be out of the city but plans changed and me and baniak are freeeeeee.

The 5th might be tough because I'm there for Professional Stuff and there might be Networking. Let me think about it!

The 8th is out for me as well. I may not even be at August GoatFrog. Which I suppose just means "I regret that this is a bad week for me, as I very much enjoy the out of towner meet ups"

August 8 is my roommate's birthday, so this is a tricky night for me as well.

HI! I am currently free August 8 so I could probably make something. I'm trying to think of a bar that's in reasonable range from Hyde Park, though, and falling a bit short. Let me think on it.

Hey, I'm also gonna be in Chicago the first week of August and would like to crash this 5th meetup! What are the space/time details?

There will be a posting, but we meet at the Original Billy Goat Tavern under Michigan Avenue (430 N Michigan, go down the stairs) after work (5:30-6:00) and move to the Blue Frog (LaSalle and Superior Streets, 676 N LaSalle, a short walk--just under a mile) around 9:30/10:00pm for Karaoke.

Seriously NO PRESSURE to sing and usually high weirdness, awkward dancing and general shenanigans.
