    RBaker2689 saidSeeing as how the guys in New York have a get together every month, I think Chicago needs to represent. So would anyone be interested? I was thinking late July or early August. I think there is one other person on here that is on board as well (he better be icon_twisted.gif ).

    Of course you don't have to be from Chicago. Anyone from anywhere is invited. For the outing I was just thinking dinner at some causal place, nothing fancy. Something along the lines of BBQ or a beer garden. If you guys have any suggestions send them this way.

    If you do this around Market Days, I'd probably make it. I'll be in town that weekend.

    If it is scheduled far enough in advance, some of us who have to travel might really make an effort! icon_smile.gif

    I totally forgot about Market Days. That would actually be a really good time to have the meetup. I think it falls on August 13 or 14. How is Saturday, August 13 for everyone?

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI'd be up for going but I have no interest in going to the Meat Market Days. Too crowded. Maybe the beach or somewhere by the lake? icon_question.gif



    You'd better show up!

    Damn you guys are picky. Just kidding! It doesn't have to be Boystown and I prefer it not to be since there are so many other great places around the city. There are some places in Lincoln Park, River North, and Lakeview. A very good friend of mine recommended The Schoolyard Tavern. Its on Southport just north of Belmont. Its a beer garden and it's a good distance away from all the craziness of Market Days. Let me know what you guys think. If you have suggestions feel free to let me know.

    The thing with the beach is that it is going to be really packed and I thought it would be best with something more low key. If an overwhelming majority wants to go with the beach idea. then I would be all for it.

    I like that idea. Lets say North Ave beach if it is nice and the restaurant that I stated earlier if the weather sucks. What times would guys want to meet up? You guys be the judge.

    Bump. I *might* be able to come up; if nothing else it could be interesting.

    One suggestion I have based on other RL meetups for other sites: name tags are helpful, but they're most useful if they have usernames too.
