Thu April 24 at 7:00 PM, Zebra Lounge
1220 North State Parkway, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
I haven't seen you chicagoan cabalists (of which there doesn't exist) in forever. I am going to be in town for work on the 25th, arriving on April 24th. Anyone around for drinks and hanging out? I will be staying in the north shore area.

WOO!! 2 out of towners in one month! But sadly, I'll be out of town on toddler duty to help my sister and baniak will be in Portland. BAH.

So are you up in the north shore suburbs? or just on the north side of town? The 24th is the PPILAct gala, but I'm only on the alternate volunteer list, so I may be free.

I could quite possibly do the 24th. I might be out for anniversary dinner on the 25th. But yeah, we need more details. I could do as far north as Evanston.

I am staying at the Public Chicago hotel which is on North State Parkway. Which appears to be a few blocks from the clark/division redline stop.

Ooh! How about the Zebra Lounge? I've always wanted to check it out.

The disadvantage being that if we don't like it, we're in sort of stuck in the worst nightlife strip of the entire Midwest.

You mean the Rush and Division list of clubs? With websites that bad, how could you go wrong?

Zebra Lounge is great. I might have broken up an engagement there.

(I have prior engagements on the 24th and 25th, sadly.)
posted by eamondaly at 9:35 AM on April 15, 2014

But can't you just break them? SEEMS LIKE THE KIND OF THING YOU WOULD DO.

so the 24th at Zebra Lounge? What time do you expect to arrive?
posted by crush-onastick at 12:56 PM on April 15, 2014

That is not something I do! If I RSVP to something I commit. It is only under very rare and special circumstances that I break plans.
posted by eamondaly at 2:02 PM on April 15, 2014

I was talking about breaking engagements because you wrote that thing...right above a joke? I'll just see myself out now.

If my flight doesn't get too delayed, I land at 4:30, given time for transport and settling into the hotel, I could be free after 7 to meetup with folks.
posted by mrzarquon at 6:00 PM on April 15, 2014

I just had two conflicts come up; so I'm going to have to bow out. Hope the Zebra Lounge lives up to its reputation!

Updated with 7pm start time at Zebra.
posted by mrzarquon at 12:59 PM on April 17, 2014

Anyone still interested in meeting up? Bueller?
posted by mrzarquon at 7:23 PM on April 23, 2014

I'm sorry - but my maybe is now a 'no' too. I'd like to say I have a good reason, but I will be in work meetings until 7, and though I'd like to have a drink, I am going to stay even later so I don't have to work tomorrow.

I am in a plane, enroute to your city. Hopefully someone will show up?
posted by mrzarquon at 12:45 PM on April 24, 2014

At my hotel, walked past the lounge on the way to my hotel, I'm stopping at the hash house next door for dinner, then will be there in case anyone shows up.
posted by mrzarquon at 4:35 PM on April 24, 2014

Well I can confirm that zebra lounge is worth checking out.

Also Malörte is a thing.
posted by mrzarquon at 7:31 PM on April 24, 2014

Hey, belatedly, just wanted to say I'm sorry this meetup didn't work out. Hopefully we'll get another chance again soon.
