UPDATE 4/15: I talked to the bar/restaurant and they are going to be seating my group and anyone who decides to join us on Thursday in the front area again. So when you walk in we should be in the section immediately behind the host stand.

UPDATE 4/11: Send me a PM and we can trade contact info if anyone wants for things like directions, where are you??, and what are you thinking about types of questions.


Okay. Just to get it out of the way, this is a 21+ event. Sorry kids but the place wont even let you in. :-(

btw THIS IS OPEN TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE!!! Please come by if you like any or all of these
1) food
2) drinks
3) socializing with randoms from the con who probably want to be your friend... or stalk you :-D

Back due to popular demand (mostly by just my friends and myself), we are going to be having another gathering on Thursday night of ACen weekend. The venue, like last year, will be Shoeless Joe's in Rosemont, located at the corner of Mannheim and Higgins. A lot of good folks ended up making it out last time and we had some good laughs. So if people are feeling sociable or just want to show up to lurk in the corner (that's fine too) then by all means come join us for food and merry making! Much raging is to be done to kick of what should be a moderately to super fun weekend.

On location. I don't know if showing this is a good thing or a bad thing, but this is basically how we are all the time...

We will work out specifics a little closer to the date, but probably like last year, we will plan on being there at around @9PM-ish till closing which is 4am. So people should have plenty of time to stop on in and say, "oh hey~"



WHERE: Shoeless Joe's ale house & grille
www.shoelessjoesrosemont.com
10290 W. Higgins Rd, Rosemont

WHEN: Thursday 26th from 9PM - 4AM





And just to throw this out there, my group of friends were considering doing a daytime trip to the newly built Rivers Casino that same day and wanted to see if other would be possibly interested in coming with. Plans are still tentative at this point but figured we would just throw that out there to see what anyone else thought.

Post here with any questions or things of the like otherwise hit me up with a PM!

I was just sitting here thinking, "Maybe I'll check out a Thursday night meet and greet this year. I hope there's a 21+ one." Yay! :D

As a member of HiroEcks' aforementioned friend-crew, I can say with full confidence that any of you Acen-goers who are on the fence about attending this awesome event should totally suck it up and come check it out. I know that last year we met and made friends with some awesome people, and good times were had by all. Plus, Shoeless Joe's has drink specials, and their burgers are off the chain.

Plus, CASINO earlier in the day! How can you not be down for that?!?!?!

We were busy attending LineCon 2011 so we couldn't make it to other meet n greet as planned.

Also, to everyone who is making a reappearance and potential newcomers, high fives all around. :D

Something related to the event; if I worked out some sort of wristband deal with the place would anyone be interested? Or is that too much?

If you promise to take a shot with a drop of Blair in it then I would gladly do the wristband thing.

I've been invited to a second gathering then also have my friends that don't like the bars and what not. So I'll definitely drop by but I'm trying to hang with as much broskis and lady peeps as I can. But I'll definitely swing by! Maybe I'll stay longer at this shindig. Another thing is I am actually at Hyatt this year, so I won't be as close as I was last year. :P

As for wrist bands, doesn't bother me. Whatever you all want to do.

Wristband is just an idea. It wouldn't be mandatory to purchase or anything so don't let that discourage you. But you can always invite your buddies. It's not like they HAVE to drink plus the place has good food. If they are brave enough they can even make an attempt at the "Big Hurt" burger. This is it's description taken directly from the site.

"Da Big Hurt Challenge
Handmade 35-ounce Angus Patty topped with American Cheese & Bacon on a special bun.
Finish it by yourself & receive a FREE Shoeless Joe’s BIG HURT T-Shirt. "



Who is a bad enough dude to dominate this burger??

^ If someone wants to try it, I challenge that person to a duel. The noob mind may think "35 oz isn't that much. I can do that easy!". Maybe you could if it was just the burger but it isn't: there's the two bread pieces, the amount of lettuce and tomatoes is basically a side salad, and don't forget the side of fries. I have attempted this challenge twice and have gotten pretty close. A double challenge would really stir up some commotion with both Shoeless Joe staff and bystanders.

What is this uberburger?

And is eating it enough to free me from being hassled about eating from cactusmomma, debbie and others for the weekend?
