    Hi All!

    I wanted to see if there is any interest in doing a Chicago Meetup during the spring. Since a lot of us are occupied on the weekends I was thinking meeting informally for cocktails after work might be the best solution. If we plan on a Tuesday or Thursday I think finding an accommodating place in River North or Fulton Market shouldn’t be an issue. The Loop is also an option.

    Kindly PM me your interest as well as any spots you had in mind. Once I get a measurable amount of interest we can begin sorting out smaller details and potential dates. Since this will be an informal meetup rather than some Instagram style blogger event...dressing up is completely optional.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

    I think the following regular posters also live in Chicago:

    @archibaldleach
    @Caustic Man
    @PatrickR

    I'm sure I'm missing others as well.

    Hi All,

    UPDATE: So far we have interest from @New Shoes1 @PinkPantser @archibaldleach and myself.

    A suggested location thus far is Game Room inside the Athletic Club. There drinks there are wonderful and the game/bar area is accommodating.

    Thank you all thus far for your responses.

    I'm just seeing this now. I'm Patrick R. Poor PatrickR is still getting all of my notifications. Now that I'm subscribed to the thread, I'll keep up and if I can make it work, I'll be there.

    Now might be a good time to take roll call.

    So far the best solution is happy hour during the week, some place in the Loop.

    July is a little busy... so August is better. But weekdays July (especially Tues/Wed) are an option.

    GT Fish and Oyster is kinda fun (especially for Happy Hour)

    I'm rather new here. But this seems likes something I'd enjoy. I'm in the midst of a closet overhaul and wardrobe change - and would love to meet others who've been there/done that.

    Afternoon Gentlemen,

    Based on the feedback here and privately, it appears that a Tuesday evening in August will be our best chance. I'm hoping we can get at least 4-5 attendees.

    Location: GT Fish & Oyster
    Time: Happy Hour (5-7pm-ish)
    Date: There are five Tuesdays in Aug. Let's decide...

    Thank you gentlemen. All three dates work for me, with the 16th being my first choice.
