    That's OK. We're talking about next Saturday to do it again. Any takers?

    Next Saturday is Art Expo at Navy Pier.

    I will be there.

    I have very limited walking stamina. Navy Pier will be a hassle, but I am glad it's back there and gone from the Mart.

    Another forum member from Chicago also wanted to come next Saturday. Should we set up a time and a place now, any more suggestions? Thanks.

    I'm OK with something next Saturday.

    I wish people who are interested would post here rather than private message, so we can all get a feel for numbers and names.

    If I can throw a place to meet into the hat for the future....

    Let Them Eat Chocolate - (Its a Coffee Shop as well)
    5306 N. Damen Ave
    Chicago, IL 60625

    Weekends they are open from:
    Sat: 11am to 9pm
    Sun: 11am to 6pm
    Sometimes they have events so its good to call and check ahead of time but its a quaint low key place in a non busy neighborhood with a good amount of seating and free WiFi.
    Decent parking around for those driving and public transportation is just a few steps away.

    We've had a group loosely centered in Chicago for about 12 years now..The Midwest Large Format Asylum

    I was already aware of that group, myself. I don't know about the others, but I'm interested in a small Chicago group because I really do not want to be running all over five states in a herd of 250 photographers or even ten. Me, I'm looking for a nice relaxing hour or two, close to home, which that group does not sound aimed at.

    For instance, the reason I'd suggested a central loop location for the first meeting was so that everyone would probably have an equally direct line to the site by public transit, rather than going sideways through Chicago, requiring cars and more fuss for some people more than others. If the intent had been to inconvenience people, Diversey and I happen to live a couple of blocks from each other, and could have met in our own neighborhood..

    As it is, I have a visitor this weekend, and won't be able to pry even a half day out of my schedule.... maybe a couple of hours. I suspect there may be more than a few people around who have similar busy weekends.

    Chicago has good public transit. Just make up a plan and let people come at their own will/please/convenience, big things have small beginnings. This forum is a good place to communicate.

    I like to attend meeting in the future whenever possible, except this month.
