Green Eye.

I haven't been there in FOREVER.


Green Eye sounds good. Right off the blue line, and actually, despite living blocks from it, I've never been there. Anyone?

It would be great because they have a lot of space a great beer selection AND wifi.

Plus right by the train and a bunch of buses, and I could ride my bike OR take the bus OR even walk.

Probably a winner.

rock.

i'm totally down for a meet-up. and beer. or you know, both at the same time.

i'm in the wrigleyville area (barf), but i've got a bike and could probably get just about anywhere in the city for said shindig.

that being said, if people wanted to meet at say, a coffee shop at some point to discuss as well, i work at one. a three story one. AND we have free wifi, metropolis coffee, a front patio, open until 11pm, etc, located right around the fullerton and clark area.

My profile name refers to the Chicago neighborhood I was born in. Count me in. Looks like we may need a pretty big room to meet in. Bars are fun but can be noisy. Public library is also a possibility

I'm game. Never been to the Green Eye, but it sounds like my kind of place and easy to get to from Wicker Park. Date/time?

Yeah, date and time? I don't want to set either of those, seems like a lot of pressure.

Also, L Danger: Noble Tree Coffee, yes? That'd be a great place to go, too.

Let me double check a calendar, but how about Wednesday July 15? I have a friend in from SF that week who is also doing InfSum, so that would be kind of perfect. 7ish?

That's the only week I won't be in town, unfortunately, but hopefully we can meet in the week or two after as well....
