    Some of you may recall my inquiry regarding joining a private club for business. I did end up joining one of the luncheon clubs in Chicago with a (dated but nice) fitness facility.

    I am finding that anyone I ask for lunch now - accepts. It is an interesting phenomanon. I wonder if its a Chicago thing, after spending the initial 8 years of my career in NYC.

    In any event, thus far, it seems to be a positive thing...

    I again thank the SF community for the input. I still do not know if I am 'club-able' in keeping with one post. I suppose this will ultimately reveal itself.

    The Standard Club. My understanding is that it is the real estate industry club. Though, I'll admit, I did no research. It is where my work associate belongs.

    hey heavyd,

    i remember your queries. glad you found a club you like.

    standard used to be the jewish club. founded because the union league club wouldn't take jews. to me, it was exactly like the ULC but with better food.

    i hadn't heard that standard was for real estate types. then again, every developer i knew in chicago was jewish.
