Hi folks! I just moved to the area and started teaching at DePaul this week. Excited to help set up a Chicago event in any way that I can. I’ll try to get to know what resources might be available at school.

I think we want to set up a meeting for next week? Look forward to meeting everyone soon!


#3

Awesome.

I vote for lunchtime next week, either at UIC or downtown? Evenings are tough for Tiff and I without more notice, because children.


#4

Hey everyone. I can go ahead and merge our names in this spreadsheet if we want to combine forces and create one event, which I think would be a good idea.


#5

@jonchambers that sounds good to me.

I just created a quick Doodle poll for next week lunch times: https://doodle.com/poll/geqtgf4c5cge8swy

If other times make better sense, I’m happy to edit the poll


#6

ok, combined the rows so there’s only one Chicago listing


#7

Sweet! Hi, everyone! I just responded to the Doodle poll. Excited to get this going!


#8

Sounds good! I just responded too—on Wednesday + Friday I can only meet downtown, but on Monday + Thursday I’m more flexible and can meet anywhere.


#9

No perfect dates so far. I could extend this into the evening, or the week after?

@funkstart note my mom will be in town, so that might free up your Friday.


#10

So Friday afternoon might work, since we might have mom support for @funkstart. Haven’t heard back from @jonchambers or Shawné, though? What do you guys think?

Where is the best place to meet downtown for you @kjhollen? Maybe at the Art Institute, or Dollop near the big library?


#11

Hey everyone. I can’t meet on Friday (class all day) but Tuesdays and Thursdays work for me.


#12

Since we’ve not found a consensus, I updated the poll with some evening hours and next week too. Please update your answers.


#13

rad, thanks! just shared some updates. it’s the first full week of school here, so I’m much more flexible next week as things are a little more settled in.


#14

Updated my availability :slight_smile:


#15

awesome. @jonchambers are you in touch with Shawné?


#16

@aljabear i’ll contact her today


#17

Hey everyone ~*
I’m a little behind but I just did the doodle and It’s great to catch up with y’all here.
Can’t wait to meet!


#18

Durp. It appears that there is no time when we can meet when everybody is available. Shall I extend the poll to the week after, or any other ideas?


#19

Sure. I’ve got mostly morning classes this quarter, so I can be free in the middle of the afternoon (3-5) on some days (Tuesday, Thursday, and most Fridays with the exception of this upcoming Friday).

From Xin, via email:

We should send a group photo and meeting notes from our meeting to Xin to share on social media.

I updated the Doodle poll; we’re all too busy, so no confluence yet. Maybe this is the wrong way to go about it. Perhaps people would like to visit Tiffany and my house (McKinley Park) over a weekend, and we could plan things over beer? There are two small children, and things are messy (just moved in), but it might work.
