Despite my utter dippiness of the last few weeks, the Vinemeet is still happening. Tyler is going to be here, and I believe a few other folks are still in, and if no one else shows up, we're all going to sit in a hotel room with laptops and hunt trolls for sport.
I'll be doing all I can to drag Lauhal out of the bunker from which she hunts spam. I will approach slowly and throw beers at her and when she's distracted, I'll capture her in a net.
There's a lot going on.
There's just no way we're going to run out of stuff to do.
Then there's the food. Tyler is insisting on diving into some Italian beef, and I wouldn't dare deny him that delicacy. I'd love to head to Pilsen for some of my favorite nachos and pastor tacos.
I'm thinking Saturday will be a big bunch of Vinemeet carousing--we'll hit some of the tourist sites and have dinner. And Sunday will be open to museums and more laid-back stuff before y'all head out. Friday we can leave a little open--a pre-party for those coming into town can be held at my place or maybe we can force our way into Tyler's hotel room.
So, let me know. I know a few who had been planning to come had to change their plans, but if you've got nothing going on this weekend, jump in the car and head to Chicago. I'll do whatever I can to make it as inexpensive as possible (I can get a good bunch into the Art Institute, at least).
