Dear patient readers,
Even though I will be overbusy in June with my upcoming move, the flip side is that thanks to being able to engage a “moving concierge,” the hardest part, sorting out what gets gotten rid of in some manner is ahead of schedule.
As a result, I would like to see if there is reader interest in a meetup on Wednesday June 12 in Cleveland and then Chicago on Thursday June 13. Reader Carla R has been lobbying for a Cleveland meetup but could use guidance as to where would be good to gather. I’d assume we’d have a small group, perhaps only 5 but as many as 12.
For Chicago, I’m pretty sure we’d have decent turnout (last year we had ~35 people later in the summer) but I wonder about venue options. We went to an Irish pub last time, D4. We did get a side room but it was a little small, it only officially holds 20 people (we squeezed a few more in but some people wound up at tables outside the room) and they have a minimum of $30 a person to book that room, which if it translates into $600 is OK but we still have the problem of the room not being big enough. So if someone or a couple of someones would find a venue, I’d love to come to Chicago.
Please note I need input pronto since I would need to buy plane tickets by Tuesday. Thanks! And hope this works out!
