    as leekohler and i started discussing over in BlueVelvet's thread, a get together of chicago MacRumor members would be pretty cool...

    who here would be intersted in such a get together?
    any ideas for what we could/would do?
    meet up for tiger's release at the Michigan Ave store?


    toss your ideas around and we will see what comes of it

    perhaps something closer/over the summer when the weather is much better here, would be easier to get together and hang out outdoors and whatnot rather than trying to find some place, bar, whatever to all go to

    Yes-we could all maybe meet at the Apple store and go from there. What do you think? On a weekend of course.

    weekend definitely, and this gives us plenty of time to organize it and get people involved as well, meeting at the Apple store would be great, comfortable atmosphere too

    I grew up in Dundee, but now live in Minnesota. I do have some family and friends in the area and may be interested if it's on a free weekend.

    Night of the Tiger get-together sounds interesting --- be neat to match face with forum personality. Short bus ride down the inner drive to the Apple store for me.

    The place will be a mad house on the day of the Tiger release - way too many people and most likely a line to get in. It would be better to choose a day that won't be as crazy and make it a more hassle free event.

    Guys-we already killed the Tiger release day idea. I'm moving that weekend. We did think it would be cool to meet up at the Apple store another time and go from there.

    No offense, but why in the world are you moving to Cincinnati? I spent half my life trying to get out of Ohio. :)

    And yes, you must come back for this!

    Traffic Scary

    Whelp - could be cool, but I don't do Chicago traffic. And after over a year of spending 5 hours a day commuting on a train, I have an irrational fear of trains as well. But, if we get a Joliet area contingent that can meet down near a corn field (joking) with one brave soul who can drive downtown, I'll be in. :)

    Noted

    I'll keep that in mind. :)

    Very nervous driver. I don't do one-way streets, either. They *really* scare me. I think they're unnatural. That's not the way the gods meant for roads to be built. :p

    Had one accident just as I was heading into "the tunnel" a few years ago. Got hit in my back corner, smashed against the right wall, back across all 5 lanes to the left wall, and a couple over to the right before stopping. Luckily, traffic was light and the people behind me avoided me. I came out fine, but the minivan (and my Apple sticker) weren't so lucky. I think that's why Apple gives us 2.

    If noone's out this way, I guess I can iChat with you all from one of the suburban stores. ;)

    I'm glad you like it. You couldn't get me back to Ohio in a wooden box though.

    I live in the north side.

    So- it looks like we have about 8 or 9 of us. Let's think about a date now. :)
