I've been building and hanging about the forum for about 2 months now, anyone else care to meet up somewhere in the city?

Chicago folks, speak up! Where shall we meet? I live on the north side of Chicago near Lincoln Square.
Rogers Park for me... just about anywhere on the north side works for me.
Diane, the spring meeting was apparently at the Grafton... I'm a big fan of that place. Should it be there again?
Works for me! October? November?

Northsider here, the Grafton was a really friendly venue (and they made a good sam-ich too).
Any Sunday in Oct (so far) is good for me.
Thanks for raising the question.

Any Sunday will work, apart from Oct 10, when I will be numbing my rear at the Music Box Theatre's 24 hour horror marathon.
I say either the 17 or the 24. Folks?

I'm putting this up on the discussion forum - I know there are waaaay more chicago people out there.
Hi,
I prefer the 17th but would attend either date.
Big thanks!
Paul H.

The Grafton on the 17th sounds great. Looking forward to it.
I'm in too!
I'm in for the 17th.
Soon see!

Hello all. Will we be getting together tomorrow and if yes (I hope) any special time? The Grafton at ??????
