Wed May 22 at 6:30 PM, Wells On Wells
1617 North Wells Street, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
This is last minuteish, I know, but would anyone be interested in a meetup on Wednesday evening? UPDATE: Confirmed. Looking forward to meeting folks!

I have physical therapy on Wednesday, but should be done by 7 or 7.30 - if there is a meetup, I might be able to attend.

I've got a bunch of wacky stuff that day, so it'll be a last-minute decision for me. But welcome!

Where in Chicago will you be?

I'm staying out near O'Hare, but will probably be aimlessly wandering around downtown most of the day because that's what I do in new cities.

I'm around on Wednesday without anywhere to be. What's convenient and not too terrible for most people? Something south of Diversey? Wells on Wells? Rossi's? Or should we head north?

I have nothing but questions

I second crush's proposed meetup for this Wednesday, at 6:30 at Well's on Wells (1617 N Well's avenue walking distance from the sedgwick brownline stop) because they have food, a beer garden if it's nice, and inside if it's not.

For those looking for a cheesy theme -- they have quesadilla's on special on Wednesday.

Sounds good to me!

There's a Bacci Pizza across the street from there, and on Wednesdays I have a 50% military discount, no limit. Unfortunately they don't have a dining room.

wait, wrong meetup...
posted by garlic at 1:20 PM on May 22, 2013

Would someone put a sign on the table, please?

If not, I look like my user picture, as does eamondaly (like his, not mine).

The standard discrete question when looking for a meet up is "Are you guys friends of Matt Howie?"

I'll have on bright pink tights.
posted by crush-onastick at 3:43 PM on May 22, 2013

I'm wearing my Flag It And Move On t-shirt. And glasses, of course.
posted by EvaDestruction at 3:46 PM on May 22, 2013

To spare confusion, I will change out of my bright pink tights and into a light blue checked shirt.

Going to the blue frog.

You guys, the Chicago Brown Line stop is so much closer to the Blue Frog than I knew. I have spent so much needless money on cabs. Lesson LEARNED!

I don't know if anyone has been outside, but I think the weather is mocking us for daring to have a meetup outside last night.
posted by MCMikeNamara at 10:51 AM on May 23, 2013

I'm running a race out there in 4 hours. It'll be delightful I imagine.

Hi, guys! Just got back to a computer and wanted to say thanks. I had a great time meeting you all! I will do my best to send some quality karaoke folks your way in the future.

Ditto! Hope your travels bring you back soon.
