Chicago Meetup This Saturday (7/12)


Addie Pray asked that I share this announcement on the main page for the “(super fun, not at all nerdy) Chicago suburb (Oak Park) /Frank Lloyd Wright home tour meetup set for this Saturday.” She says: “Special guest is call-me-hobo who is flying up from Nashville for the weekend and coming to the meetup.”

Here are the details:

Date: Saturday, July 12

Time: 1 pm

Where: Starbucks at 711 Lake Street in Oak Park.

The plan: Meet at 1 pm, chit chat, then at 2 pm walk over to the guided Frank Lloyd Wright home tour that starts at 2:20 pm. Tickets are available here.

If you’re coming from the city you can get a ride with Addie Pray. The AP train is leaving from the loop at 12:15 pm. … Let her know. Otherwise, the el goes to Oak Park and the Starbucks and FLW home are all within walking distance.

Not in Chicago but jonesing for a DW meetup? Check the meetup forums to see if there’s one in the works in your area, or start organizing one yourself. Above photo is from the last Chicago meetup last week (yeah, they’re pretty much beating everyone in number of meetups…).

    Ah crap, I knew there was something I was forgetting about this weekend. My best friend is celebrating her birthday on Saturday 🙁 One of these days I’ll put together a Madison meetup and make the Chicagoans come up here.

      I was just in Madison yesterday/this morning for work. Now, back in Chicago. Ok, I lied, Middleton. That’s where I was.

    Oh and Meems – she’s the one in white in the middle – is a straight-up lurker. Been reading Wendy’s stuff since City Wendy. (I don’t know why but when a lurker comes to a meetup I feel this tinge of je ne sais quoi – accomplishment? Pride? Bragging rights (“we got a lurker!!”)?
    On another note, a friend is setting me up on a blind date. I looked up the guy on Facebook, and he and I have a friend in common – and that’s you, Meems!! (Small world, eh?)

    Hey guys! If you’re reading this, Addie and I had a flat tire and I don’t think we’re going to make it.
