Gathering in Chicago for MPU Live?


#1

Hey all, I’ll be coming to Chicago from out of town (Indiana) for MPU Live tomorrow and staying near the venue.

If anyone is interested in a low-key get together in the area before/after (at least for those of us who weren’t able to get VIP Tickets!), or if you have suggestions for good coffee/eats in that part of town, let me know!


#2

I really enjoyed Lou Malnati’s pizza both times I visited Chicago! No idea if it’s near the venue though I’m afraid.


#3

@RosemaryOrchard - Next one in Europe?


#4

No Malnati’s in Europe, I’m afraid. But I’m sure it’s still a nice place to visit. :wink:


#5

I’d be interested in grabbing a bit ahead of time.


#6

I am up for this meetup since I will be driving in from the Detroit area. I also hope to visit the New Michigan Ave Apple Store.


#7

I can’t attend the event but am around this weekend after the event and tonight as well

I’ve been looking for a casual eatery near the venue and found Cortland’s Garage, probably 5-7 minute walk…

We could sort of do an informal meetup beforehand, say 4:30 or 5?

Or if we wanted to meet up at the Lincoln Park Apple store, we could hit the Interurban Boathouse
On the way if we need to be fed:

Anyone feel free to PM me and I can add you to an iMessage group I’m starting up.

I would be interested in meeting up before the event

Okay so I think the current plan is to meet at the Lincoln Park Apple Store at 5pm, then make our way to the show with a potential pitstop.

PM Me with your iMessage address if you want to be put into the iMessage group we’ve got going or iMessage me at scott [at ]scottlougheed [dot] com (as if that will stop spammers… :man_shrugging:)
