This is a spin-off from the other meet-up thread. There are a few of us from Chicago and surrounding areas. Anyone interested in a meet-up?

I'm interested! I'm moving in January though, so it needs to be before then.

There had been a proposal of getting together Noveber 4. How does that sound? Emami and I had been talking about The Buzz cafe in Oak Park (less than 5min south of I290 & Blue Line Accesible)-they have very yummy organic brunches on sundays. Does anyone have other suggestion?

I could do Nov 4. DP will still be out of town, but she's ridiculously hard to schedule around, so it's best to plan for just me.

According their website, they close at 2pm on Sunday, so we may need to move that up a bit.

We'll see you there. And we know where the Buzz is--one of the few places in Chicagoland where a pregnant lady can get a decaf chai latte!

I just found out there's a chance (though a small one) that dp might be home in time. Her job may be ending early. So we may be one and we may be two...

I'm planning on coming, Dd has a birthday party that morning so we might either be late, or it will just be me.

Hi all, just wanted to remind everyone (since I just remembered) about daylight savings time! Don't forget to set your clocks back or you'll be way early...

OK< Dp's not feeling well. Hope someone sees this. We are still coming, but it's probably going to be me and Dd, and we'll be about 1/2 hr late because the birthday party Dd's attending is in evanston. I'll be wearing a mexican poncho in shades of black, purple, red and a brown skirt-and be with a very blonde little girl... loooking forward to it.

I think we're in, too. The Buzz works fine for us. What do you think timewise, since we closed out the place last time? Maybe earlier? I can't remember what time we did last time, though. . .

We did noon last time. We live 3 blocks away so really anytime is good for us. I'm open to getting there earlier....

I'm not a morning person, but quite willing to go a bit earlier, Does 11 sound good?
