Random Visit of Chicago

Postby Dr Legostar on Sat May 26, 2007 10:39 am

On the 22nd, 23ed, and 24th of June I will be in the Chicago Area, specifically staying in a hotel in Evanston for my best friend's wedding, but I'd like to get together with some chicago area cgers for dinner on Friday, the 22nd. I was thinking the Walker Brothers Pancake House in Wilmette.

Sublet, Yeahduff, Col, this is mostly to you guys. what do you say?

Sure. I've not been that that particular Walker Bros., but I know where that is.

I'll have a better idea when we're closer to the date. Hopefully I'll be good for it!

Will you be passing anywhere near St. Louis, Lego?

I want to give these guys buttons.

Wilmette is 323 miles away - about 4 hours, maybe more. :(

Oooo, buttons.

That reminds me, do you still want some cicadas? There aren't a whole lot in my area, but I can try to find some dead ones. Is there a specific way to preserve bugs and mail them in a legal maner? If I see any molted skins, I can try to collect those too.

Why should they get buttons? They didn't come to the cookout.

I want the molted skins! I like those a lot!

I can do without several day old cicadas. They probably aren't tasty anymore.

They should get buttons because it's in good fun, and because I have a dozen or so buttons left and no real use for them aside from adorning them on a shirt as a poor-man's version of scale mail.

ryan, i took buttons for them already, I've got them, and no i won't be anywhere near St. Louis, but I have buttons for them. After 7 would probably be best, say shoot for 7:30 meeting there?

I'll be there! I probably stand the best chance of getting there on time if it's at 7:30.

okay then 7:30 at 153 Green Bay Rd. which is the addy for the Walker Brothers Pancake house in Wilmette on Friday the 22nd of June. Bring sketchbooks and such, I have a sketchbook from Nanda to give to you guys and you can figure out how to get it back to her. I've also got cookout buttons for you three. I would also like to exchange sketches with all of you. Plus the eating of awesome pancake stuff.

Sound good?

You all get to see my new haircut too.

I'm not even sure I like it though.

It's near Linden, but it's too far to walk so I can pick you up if you want. I think it's a few miles away.
