Chicago DUers.... It is time to party again!!!!
:party: :toast: :beer:

When shall we do it? I know that Susang must watch the Academy Awards on February 27....

How do you feel about either Sunday, February 20...or Sunday, March 6? 2 or 3 in the afternoon?

We can do the usual Irish pub location...or perhaps another one.

I am hoping that the usual suspects will show up. It ain't a gathering...er....party without you guys.

Who is with me?

5. May I say that I'm a little envious of you Chicago folks?
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 09:58 PM by Bunny
Us Pittsburgh people aren't terribly sociable! We've only managed one meet-up! Why don't you all come here and get us started? ;)

Sorry you can't join us, Bunny, but I know that Pittsburgh is a distance away.

7. Yeah, it's kinda far away.
And I would normally say that Chicago is a little too cold for me, except that we've had low temps hovering around zero here for a week now. Dang, it's COLD!!! :scared:

11. Great!
It'll be good to see you again.

We had a quick brunch for Andy Stephenson the day after Christmas. Arranged in haste because he came to spend Christmas with my family. A good time...great turnout considering that not many people were around over the holiday...but not quite the same blowout as our usual get-togethers.

14. Yes, you did.
I also posted in the Illinois forum, but only a couple days before the event.

I bet he will be back...will be commuting to the East Coast a lot. He is heading from Seattle to DC on Sunday, has a brief stopover at Midway.

12. either day has
an equal chance of some sort of catastrophe blowing me out of the water. at this point they both look fine to me. but, the sooner the better i would say.
i would also say, goose island. accessible from the red line, and both metra north lines.

Does Goose Island have Guinness? That seems to be important to some of us.

18. only have their own beer

people should not be sticks in the mud.

15. I may like to come.
I know my profile says "Milwaukee" but I have moved to Chicago recently. But I vote against Goose Island. I've been there too many times already!

17. Welcome to Chicago, Johnny.
That's why you posted last Saturday that it was a blizzard on the South Side of Chicago.

Damn thing moved up to the North Side a bit later.

We'll be happy to meet you.

Around St. Patrick's Day? Or did your circumstances change?

There's enough time to let everyone know about it.

It would be great to get a big turnout. :-)

Thanks,

36. Dammit I want to come up there
You Chicago people rock with all your get togethers, you couldn't get this bunch together here if you lit dynamite off under their asses.
I'm jealous, and mighty tempted to jump on a greyhound, but I'd need someone to pick me up and host me for a couple of days.
March would be cool, because I could rob peter and paul to go early in the month.
Any takers?, surely somebody has a couch I could crash on.

47. The first time we went to this place.....
they kicked us out of one area to host a kids' birthday party. So I think it'd be all right...as long as you stick to soft stuff.

50. It'd probably be 2....
because the place doesn't open until about then. We are talking a great Irish bar.

Hope you and your special guest can make it.
