So. Green Eye. 7/15. 7ish.
Bring your book. Hold it in front you like a shield so we can tell each other from the maddening crowd.

Something like that.

also, I am thinking make a roll call if you're coming? Just so I know how many to expect...

(I almost pushed it back due to the BINGO! at The Hideout. omg Bingo, people! With hot dogs! But what would you all think to 8 as opposed to 7?)

goodoldneon:

YES! noble tree indeed. unfortunately though, we don't serve beer. :( but that being said, if somewhere down the line we'd rather go for coffee (and pie - mmm) instead of beer (hah - what?), i can definitely get the top floor closed down or something for all of us. :)

july 15th sounds good to me - and it's far enough in advance that i can get out of slinging lattes.

Hello Chicago IJ people. I am excited to talk to real people about this book. All of my friends and family think I am nuts for tackling this book but I don't care. I am loving it. So, 7 PM July 15 at Green Eye? I'm in!!

I, um, I have already made plans to see the new Harry Potter movie on the 15th. Don't judge!

I think getting the top floor of the Noble Tree some time sounds amazing, though, and lindseydanger is a hero for suggesting it! Do we want to commit to Wednesdays? Maybe, like, July 29th? Just a suggestion, I'm open!

I won't be able to do the last week of the month due to some family stuff. But you kids have fun!

haha - i'm definitely not a hero. i just work there, and i know we've got some quality coffee. :)

as far as the 15th goes, it almost looks like it might not exactly be the best day for people - what with bingo at the hideout, and (no judgement) the harry potter movie. are those of us that CAN make it still planning on meeting? or would it be better to find a different day that may work a little better?

The bingo was a temptation, I'd rather do this.

I wanted to do it on the 15th since my friend who is also doing Infsum is going to be here from SF.

Who else is in? I'm curious?

I just saw this fly by on Twitter and figured I would mention it here:

Nikwa: Chicago! There is an #infsum meet up 7:30 tonight at 3rd Coast. No spoilers past page 168 make sure to bring a discussion topic!

Nice of them to mention it here. >.<

I wish there was some more central place for everything. I'm not getting half of the infsum tweets, either. UGHHHHH. Stupid twitter.

It doesn't look like anyone has posted this yet, but there's a meet up tonight at Third Coast on Dearborn at 7:30.

I know it's late notice, but I hope to see at least some of you there.
