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.

SLIM:

is this a monthly thing? would like to attend but am going to be in NYC for my firm's holiday party that day


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.

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

Also a lurker here, first post, it will be interesting to meet some Chicago professionals


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

Just sayin

i'm a pretty new wso user and this is the first time I've heard of this event. I am from chicago, currently attending a non-target and am trying to get my foot in the door in IB. is this a networking event?

Dec 15, 2014 - 2:44pm

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 - 10:32pm

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.

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

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.

damn, totally missed this cause of the location change.

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.

IlliniProgrammer:

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.

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