We can always kidnap you.
"Frank and explicit"-that is the right line to take when you wish to conceal your own mind and to confuse the minds of others.

Well this one is right in the Hyatt. So rides should be far less of an issue.

From my understanding, rides are never a problem if you decide to go. However, it will probably conflict with the late night meetup.

Plus, the Ihop jaunt is a separate thing. We're going to hang around the hotel and talk for at least an hour or two before they even head off to Ihop. I don't even go to Ihop honestly, just the hotel part.

this thread makes me want to say "jaunt" on a regular basis.

Hoping to show up for more than 1 minute this year. every time I get there, everyone's already grouped up and introductions have already been done so I just sort say hi to a few people and pounce away.

Said hi. and then was told by my room group I was the one paying for pizza and drinks for the evening so I figure awkwardly meeting new people < getting yelled at my the people that could potentially leave me out of the room all night.

8PM on Thursday. Pretty sure I have the location right (highlighted in yellow). Also, be aware that the location is subject to change if we are forced to, for whatever reasoning.

For reference (and if you can't tell), this is the street level floor of the Hyatt O'Hare.

==========

Also, to kinda give an idea of how it typically breaks down.

Meetup at 8pm, identify yourself by name/forum name at the beginning (this is not law but makes it easier..especially as a forum M-n-G), random discussions and other shenanigans commence.

After a bit of time (overall time of meetup varies but the crowd seems to be getting larger over the years..so the overall period increases somewhat), people will typically diverge into three paths.

Some people will remain at the con immediately after, others will venture out and hit up a somewhat local IHOP (google map location), and others will venture off to a somewhat local sports bar called Shoeless Joe's (google map location). IHOP is a general admittance affair whereas Shoeless Joe's is a 21+ meetup.

Shoeless Joe's Meetup Thread

Both remote locations are not what you would call places you would venture to on foot or even on bike (I say this because it will be dark). Both groups typically have willing individuals who are able to provide rides and some others will also call up the plethora of cabbies in the area. This goes for to/fro transportation.

For those interested in getting their IHOP on Thursday night, someone should put up a thread up and coordinate more intimate details therein.

In looking at the map for both places, they are literally down the street from one another. One could technically hit both.

That time works out pretty well for me. I'm not a bar person at all since I don't drink but I'll go wherever my feet take me.

Same here everyone was already grouped up by the time I came haha. I got to introduce myself but I ended up staying by the wall like an awkward kid.
Hopefully this year I'll show up on time since I know where it is now.
