Parking for Emerald Loop: Sidestreet likely available along Lake street, which is 1 block south of the bar. Lake is a 1-way street, with L tracks overhead. Best shot is grabbing a spot under the tracks.

Will be there.

I think the first one in a while was in November. Not sure when the last one was before that.

I can think of a small group of people who would probably vote for it to be monthly (or possibly even more frequent), but I'm not sure how the rest of the 20+ people who attended last month feel about it.

I go down to Houston to visit the family for Christmas that day, or else I would be there. Too bad I'll miss it... the last one was awesome.

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Dec 10, 2014

Set one up for January (not the weekend of the 16th) and I'll be there.

From my experience last time, "professional" may be an overstatement lol

Ah yeah! Ballers from Citadel, GTCR, Madison Dearborn, Booth, just having drinks while chatting up gorgeous midwestern blondes. What a sight to behold!

Is anyone actually attracted to the 'wholesome' midwestern aesthetic?

Dec 15, 2014

IMO, Chicago has hotter girls than NYC.

Dec 15, 2014

In order to compete with those elite dudes I will be driving my rusty honda there. The streetside parking will be great for showing off my awesome ride, and I have a state of the art security system on it to prevent theft. (I get nervous about street parking.)

Does anyone know if the bar sells Old Style or PBR? Or am I stuck with Goose Island?

Dec 15, 2014

I'm going, I really enjoyed the last one but wasn't able to stick around long enough

and @"IlliniProgrammer" if they don't serve Old Style then we should just split a six pack and slip it in the laptop bags.

Dec 16, 2014

i wana meet this @"IlliniProgrammer" dude

Will try to swing by tonight

Dec 17, 2014

Wish I could attend you boys have fun... and it is not a real bar if they don't have Old Style or PBR.

Dec 17, 2014

FYI, I had to change the venue due to reservation problems. Sorry to spring this on you guys same-day, and hopefully you all get the message. I just notified the WSO team, and hopefully they can get everything updated.

New Venue: Emerald Loop. Located at 216 North Wabash (corner of Wabash & Haddock).

Time is still 6:30pm.

Directions are the same. Ask for WSO group when you arrive. We will have a few high-top tables near the bar area.

Parking: Sidestreet likely available along Lake street, which is 1 block south of the bar. Lake is a 1-way street, with L tracks overhead. Best shot is grabbing a spot under the tracks.

Sorry for the confusion, all.

Keep your golddigging NY girls and your flat foldy pizza, only irrational Chicago love should be allowed on this thread.

Dec 17, 2014

damn, totally missed this cause of the location change.

Dec 18, 2014

Zach,

I dont know your username, but I totally bought your last drink because the waitress forgot to charge you until after you left and wouldnt let us leave until someone covered your tab.

You owe me a beer in Jan.

I just remembered that IP gave me like $6 or $7 coz I was bitching about paying your bill. So you actually owe IP a beer.

LOL

I don't recall any bitching. And the $7 was money I had saved on my bill because Emerald Loop gives a holiday bonus on gift cards. I was shocked and appalled that I was the only person to take advantage.

I still have $3 left on it. I'll be keeping the card in my rusty Honda to pay for a PBR next time.

I have 1.8 credits left on a Dave & Buster's card. I bought sippie straw glasses. I can't figure out how to assemble them though. I have two sippie straws. No glasses.

Look at all these wannabe richies hating on an expensive salad.

You should have spent it on a can of PBR. :). Nice seeing you again btw.

Dec 20, 2014

I wasn't there. Is there a Goldie impersonator?
