We’re holding the Chicago meetup discussed here on Sunday, August 1, 2010 at 2:00 pm. The tentative location is the Corner Bakery at the corner of State and Cedar (1121 N. State St.), but we’re also happy to move the meetup further up to the North side as has been previously discussed, if anyone has a suggestion for a good venue.

We will post any updates here as well as to our Chicago LW meetup Google group. Please comment here if you plan to attend. We'll have a table-top sign to help you identify us.

We’re looking forward to a second successful Chicago meetup and hope to see some old and new faces!

I should be able to make it.

I will be there. (God willing and the creek don't rise.)

I'll be coming from the Detroit area. I'll consider picking someone up if otherwise they wouldn't be able to attend, but otherwise I'd rather avoid logistical hassles by driving solo (at least this time around).

Thanks Airedale and steven0461 for organizing this and Ben, Nic_Smith, and Unnamed for attending.

An answer to a question that came up during the meetup: Roko's t-shirts are still here (on

I am, sadly, too busy this weekend to make it. I would be coming down from Milwaukee, and very much hope to make the next meeting.

For prospective places to meet up, I am afraid that in Illinois, I have little experience. The only place i do know of is Ballydoyle Irish Pub and restaurant which is a nice place with several back rooms for parties which wish to have a more private meal and discussion.

I'd also like anything within easy walking distance of Ogilvie Transportation Center, making it easy to get there via the Metra, though within distance of any of the train stations connected to this would also be nice.

I'll be there.

Unfortunately, I'll be out of town on Saturday and probably won't be back in time on Sunday. And at such a convenient location!
