Hey all. If such a topic exists under a different title, then plop a link to it and close this one, but I think it'd be cool to arrange an ACen forums meet and greet. Someone I know from Otakon arranges such for Otakon, and it's a lot of fun. I'm not necessarily proposing that I'll organize it, but if someone can suggest a place in Chicago itself, or even in Rosemont around the con that'd be cool. I'd like to get this idea going.

Thanks,
Shiggitay

I was sort of thinking of doing this on the Thursday of that week or something like that, if not earlier that week. Hmmm

And KPP I now see your signature mentioning you'll update on the forum meet and greet thing you're planning... lol

It is on Thursday and always happens at the hotel. Its a several year long tradition. :)/> I would not do it earlier than Thursday because most people wont be there.

I'm making the thread now. There is also a 21+ meet and greet that usually happens after this one. That one is held outside of the hotel. Heres it's thread Link

If you want there used to be an IHOP portion after the meet and greet as an alternative to the 21+ one. I don't think it happened last year as nobody stepped up to plan it- but a lot of people enjoyed that. If you want to do something like that (even if it's not at IHOP) I'll update the annual meet and greet thread to include the information.

Well I don't know Chicago area all that well (not at all actually) so if you know of some good places that welcome small crowds of 20-somethings, then let's maybe plan for that? Oh and I'll be arriving via AMTRAK or plane... not sure which yet, so possibly getting there via the subway system would be preferred.

Well I'm not from Chicago- but perhaps someone else can??

I am from Chicago and almost all places will except large groups as long as they are given a heads up. Large groups = more money and good tips. Pizza joints are good like giordano's is right on jackson from union station.

That is not what I was suggesting. I was saying that you might like to organize the IHOP (all ages) portion of the forum meet up - that is after the main meet-up at the Hyatt. This something that I'm not organizing because I do not go. This is an alternative to the 21+ one. The 21+ is a totally separate event that will probably be hosted by the same guys...

Yeah, I don't think the 21+ will have any trouble finding hosts again.

I'm pretty sure Hiro, ninjajedi, and youngbirdcall. Possibly Isamu and s1nner will be posting their events as the time nears. We are still in the dead time of the forums. See you all then!

Couldn't the "all-ages dinner" also take place at the MB Financial Park?
Or are all the establishments only 21+ during that time?

I'm not sure- Nobody has stepped up to do this though- so the likelihood is it wont happen again.

I'm not sure. Most of the establishments, if not all, cater to the adult crowd at dark. The only questionable one on age would probably be the bowling alley.

I know a few formers that like going out to dinner like the old meet ups did.
-Toby Kieths Bar and Grill is a 21+ "bar" on weekend nights at 9pm.
So youngins can go eat dinner there on Thursday for a "meet n greet".
:rolleyes:

I think it would be best to have a temporary room that we can utilize when doing the meet and greet. I know that the anime viewing rooms are empty on the night before so perhaps we could all meet there before deciding on restaurant (bar hop for 21+) that evening.

The issue is is this that we have no idea what is going to be used or even open for that matter. That's why I proposed using the normal location (first lobby behind the elevators) but having the masquerade/main ballroom hallway in case it's too loud or noisy. I wanted to just move the location- but the polling on the forum meet and greet thread is showing otherwise. I'm pretty sure the guys are going to be posting the 21+ soon.
