No better reason to catch up with y'all. See you Sunday! Maybe for dancing. Definitely for drinks.

Yay! I am looking forward to this. not_on_display needs to be at the airport at 8 pm so he may make a cameo appearance.

Their voicemail has been full since Friday and they're not responding to Facebook messages so we'll just wing it. There's plenty of lovely seating and mingling room out front riverside if we have to wait, though.

Oh, and I realize now that maybe people thought the request for an early RSVP was a hard cut-off. Feel free to come down! It's a fairly large place with plenty of informal standing-around area, so I'm sure we can make it work regardless of the headcount, and if not there are plenty of other places along the Riverwalk that I'm sure will accommodate us.

(And of course I'll post here if for some reason we abandon ship.)

Also, if you're heading south afterward, I could use a favor. Email me off-list, please: address in my profile.

Just got here. Where are you sitting?

Big group of twelve, just getting seated east of the hostess stand. I have blue high hair!

We're heading up to the top of the Hancock, so meet us at the Signature Lounge for a drink!

Sorry I missed all of you! I didn't want to come up and have to walk to the train station alone after dark. And I'm sure you all heard the news about pjern. Hope to see you all soon and meet Jessamyn someday!

pjern, you were missed! (As was IndigoRain!) Hope all is well.

Yeah, I was surprised to hear when pjern's text came in; I hope you feel better, buddy.

Eamon, you are a mensch for coordinating this, and then procuring the best seats in the skyscraper bar. Wish I coulda been there to enjoy it with you and all the rest of you, whom I wanted to kibitz with. As it was, I had a great time looking at the city from the L, and an easy time getting thru Midway security.

Cheers! Hope I visit your great city again real soon!

Thanks for all the well-wishes and the shoutout! I just got home today, and am resting up a bit. Taking an airbag full in the chest wasn't the kind of fun I was hoping to have associated with a meetup, that's for sure.

Depends on the meetup! Glad you're home recuperating. Get the hell on FB Scrabble so I can get my ass kicked some more!
