After tireless weeks of waiting and arm wrestling (and pure laziness on my part >.<), I am happy to announce that we finally have a time, date and location for thursday's ACen's 2008 Meet & Greet!

The meetup will take place on Thursday, May 15th @ 8:00 pm. We will meet up at the Sky Harbor area of the Hyatt Regency O'hare. For those that dont know where it is, its where the fountain use to be a long time ago until it was removed last year. You cant miss it. Here is a floor plan of where to find it in case you get lost.

Now for those that want to go to the Steak & Shake here is the address.

10421 W Touhy Ave
Rosemont, IL 60018
847-299-3944

We head out there at nine. For those that cant make the 8:00pm meet up at the hotel and want to go straight to the restaurant that is fine ^__^
Make sure you find a buddy to get a ride there. Ok now that this is setted lets meet, eat and be merry ^__^

Correction: Sky Harbor is where the fountain used to be. It is on the main level BELOW where the pool used to be.

Sky Harbor is also where you will find the masquerade office starting on Friday, FYI.

Sounds good but do I have to be Merry? I would much rather go as Isamu.

Nothing to be nervous about... Just talk to people you know and such. Looking at badges and such help.

...Isamu, you don't want to be me? D=. Well, I suppose it is "Mary" and not "Merry" if you were to be me.

I'll be there providing nothing stupid happens on the car/train/taxi ride here, and this year I'll hopefully have anywhere from 1-3 friends with me. Which reminds me; does anyone have a way to get us to Steak n Shake? Be it someone with a van or a couple different car drivers. The maximum space needed is 5 people, the minimum is 2-3, more likely 3.

I may have 2 spots for transport. And how big is this Steak & Shake anyway? Or does no one show up to the M&G?

I'd say that Steak & Shake could seat about 50-60. I was there tonight and I counted 36 seats in the section we had pretty much filled last year. :)

I have had 33 years playing myself and feel attempting to play you at this time wouldn't do you justice. However I look forward to seeing you there.

I dont have that many days. Only three days and man I'm going to enjoy it. Meeting new people of same interests and so far everyone I met on the forums seem pretty cool so far. No regrets.
