Hey Chicagoans and Chicagoan Wanna-bes...

Hey everyone!

Who's up for a little Chicago blogger holiday get-together? Word is that our friends out west, sisters Vikki and Kristi will be in town. I know that Lulu will be back with exotic tales of Bangladesh and I hope she'll have a little free time. A date has been proposed by others for something on the 26th. Now, I know the holidays are crazy with family obligations and gift-returning, but it sure would be cool to meet a few more of you in person. I'm looking for suggestions as far as where to do it - preferably someplace easily accessible that could accommodate a large, impromptu group. Looking at my list-o-links, the following people may be Chicago-types. Please spread the word to anyone else who you think might be around or interested.
  • The boys of Nevada Thunder
  • Grant Miller
  • Frank Sirmarco
  • Phil @ God's Own Suburb
  • Geoff @ Say It Ain't So, Geo
  • Valerie
  • Slinger
  • Johnny Yen and family
  • Tenacious S
  • Dave @ Bad Art Global
  • K.I.D.? (Where is she anyway?)
  • The [Cherry] Ride
  • The Bubses
  • Clare
  • Splotchy
  • Evil Genius?
  • Samurai Frog
  • The Idea Of Progress?
Who did I forget?

I don't do planes. Well, not unless a gun is held to my head.

what's all that white shit??

Grant Miller said...

There's a couple others I will try and contact. Also, Narcicus may attend.

Additionally, you were nominated for several Drysdale awards.

The Idea Of Progress said...

If I'm in town, I should be able to make it, provided there is alcohol present.

Amy said...

In case you didn't know, I'm moving to Madison in 2 weeks. However, I won't be able to make this one...

'Bubbles' said...

Slim chance, but I'm still hoping I can fly in for this event... believe it or not.

Geo said...

Sorry, I'll still be out of town at that point. Have half a carafe for me.

Hot Lemon said...

THIS Queen o' Comments shan't be there.

Winter said...

Vote for me!

Tenacious S said...

I'll be there! I'm assuming we are looking for a place with beer and food and possibly fun.

GETkristiLOVE said...

Someplace that has a good tequila list please!

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Awesome. Count me in. I could likely round up a few from the Liar's Club too.

Bubs said...

We will be there. I'll try and lure Splotchy out of his lair and encourage him to bring MizSplotchy with him.

lulu said...

Can we have a Northside venue please>

Splotchy said...

I'll try my damnedest to make it, and bring MizSplotchy too.

Evil Evil Genius said...

Sorry, but I will be in a different snow-ridden town, Pittsburgh. But my warm thoughts will be with you all. (Naturally my thoughts for Lulu and GkL will be slightly warmer [wink emoticon omitted].)
