  • Chicagoboyz DC Meetup – Monday, July 28

    Posted by Jonathan on July 22nd, 2008 (All posts by )

    This could be big! Or not. It should be fun in any case.

    We’re going to meet next Monday after work at a convenient location in Northwest DC.

    If you want to join us, please email me: jonathan at chicagoboyzdotnet.

    We are the bloggers we have been waiting for!

    Or something.

      Wow! Have fun and remember, the first round is on Jonathan.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Dude. Totally DO wish I could be there.

      Next year in Chicago! Valois then Jimmy’s???

      Ice water! For all my good friends!


    4. James R. Rummel Says:

      Wish I could be there, as well. Alas, I will be elsewhere.

      At least I will be somewhere my CCW license is still good. It wouldn’t be, in DC.


    5. Smitten Eagle Says:

      I’d love to be there but can’t be. I hope you all have fun!

    6. Helen Says:

      I’ll be there in spirit (or iced water, whatever). ;-)

    7. Tatyana Says:

      Helen, will you be in flesh in London, last week of August? And introduce me to a proper high tea?

    8. fred lapides Says:

      …if you are not nice to me I might show up!

    9. Jonathan Says:

      We’ll save a pitcher for you!

    10. fred lapides Says:

      since I don;’t drink, how about a catcher?

    11. Ginny Says:

      It would be nice to see some on-the-spot reporting – Surely the meet-up is 3-network-anchor newsworthy. Sometime I’d like to put faces to names (and tones to voices).

    12. Lexington Green Says:

      I am in Detroit Rock City tonight, for work.

      Too bad business is not going to bring me to DC.

      We really do need a Chicago gathering. Next year? Memorial Day?

      Do it on the lake front. Picnic. BYO food. Then off somewhere for alcohol.

      Ginny’s point is good. Maybe we can have a contributors-only conference call!


    13. Helen Says:

      Tatyana, I have only just seen your comment. Yes, I’ll be here and yes, indeed, we can have tea wherever you want. Proper high tea is a meal you have in the north of England. I don’t think it’s what you think of as tea. Looking forward to a meeting up the London chapter of Chicagoboyz.

    14. Tatyana Says:

      Splendid! [hope this one wasn’t a blunder!]

      I’ll write to you @eureferendum, to set time and place – and I also have comments section@my blog that I can make invisible to other readers.


    15. Ralf Goergens Says:

      Unfortunately I can’t be there.

    16. Helen Says:

      Tayana, absolutely great. :)

    17. Helen Says:

      And I know how to spell your name. Honest. Sheesh! And me with a Russian mother as well.

    18. Tatyana Says:

      Not to worry – if you could only see my collection…It has one “T”, at least. The star exhibit has none: Kechana.
