Chicago Meetup Dates
« on: 26 Sep 2008, 09:20 »

This poll will run for five days.

Oli is coming to Chicago-con and he needs to buy his ticket now before he spends all his birthday money and student loan money on stuff he actually needs. So we need a date, pronto.

Disclaimer: I am not in charge of Chicago-con.

Disclaimer #2: I am not in charge of anything, actually.

I would prefer the last weekend of the month, both because I'd have that day off and also because if I'm going to the trouble of flying out there, I'm not doing it for just a weekend, and the Red Sox will be in Chicago the weekend after. The Cubs will be at home that weekend too, and I'd love to go to a game at Wrigley.

So yeah, optimally, it'd be best suited for Rachel and I's attendance if it were to be the last weekend of August. I'd be able to fly in on Friday and just take the following week off from work.

The last weekend of August would not be good for me, as I will definitely be back in school before then. I am willing to bet that classes for me start on the 24th of August, so I would prefer any of the first three weekend in August. Also I am guessing that at least a few other people will be going back to school at the end of August, and it is just easier to not have to deal with school schedules.

I'm voting the July 31st beginning date, since it's 4 days after my birthday. Other than that, I have absolutely no preference, since I'll be there regardless.

i do not care which of the weekends it is, since i don't have school or anything like that. but i think it should be earlier in the month because i was always back at school by august 20th or so. and also by then i think jason will be in school.... so earlier in the month is better.

also, who is in charge of chicagocon?

Someone needs to at least vaguely oversee things, otherwise you run a big potential clusterfuck. If you've got six people each keeping track of a handful of unrelated details, shit'll fall apart.

Somebody should be in charge of planning it and it should be someone who is definitely going.

I think we should just put everything in a thread, like what hostel you are staying at so other people can book rooms, when people are arriving so you can coordinate rides, that sort of thing. Sure, we can name one or two people to "oversee" things but there really isn't anything they can do to be "in charge."

I don't know how sure I am that I'll be coming. I might be in exams until the 14th, the weekend before is out for me because there's something else (Hillside) that might be then which takes precedence massively for me. Until the 14th I may be in exams, so I'd be most likely to come if it were after the 14th.
I really don't know where/what I will be in a year, though.
I voted.

i think jon is right, we need someone to at least oversee the hostel booking. i am assuming that we all want to stay in the same room again, and that needs to be arranged by one person to ensure that we book one whole room. many hostels have 10 or so beds in one room, if you book individually they just throw you in one. also some of the hostels in chicago are huge and will probably fill up fast, i think faster than the ones in toronto, so we will need to book very early, especially if we all want to stay together in one or two rooms. i think our best bet is the HI chicago hostel (http://www.hostelworld.com/availability.php/HIChicago-Chicago-1853), since it is centrally located and has no curfew.

it would also help if we had a couple people to put together a few agendas for the trip, just so we all have a vague idea of what we are doing. we had a vague idea of what we were doing beforehand in tronno and that really helped to get everyone organized and together. even if it is as simple as on this day we will go to the aquarium, on this day we will go shopping on the magnificent mile, on this night we will invade joe hocking's place and have drunken acappella karaoke, etcetera it helps to have a plan.

carpools and rides and stuff.... that can be arranged on your own through PMs and such. but you should know that parking in chicago is a bitch, and not all hostels offer discounted parking, or parking at all. i see nothing on the HI chicago page about parking for cars, only for bicycles. in the past when i have stayed in chicago it cost between 30 and 40 dollars per day to keep my car parked in a garage, with no in and out priveleges so i couldn't even use the car at all. not like you need a car in chicago, but just something to keep in mind when planning your trip.

The Cubs will be at home that weekend too, and I'd love to go to a game at Wrigley.

The Cubs are at home Aug 25- Sept 2nd, so I'd vote then.  Also, I think I will have a nice long weekend.

i think our best bet is the HI chicago hostel (http://www.hostelworld.com/availability.php/HIChicago-Chicago-1853), since it is centrally located and has no curfew.
I stayed there for the first few days I was in Chicago. It is a pretty nice place for a hostel. There is an all right place to hang out with table tennis and the like, and smaller sitting rooms on all the floors, and the internet is quite expensive (at least in my books, $1 for 10 minutes). It is right in the centre of everything, it's right by all the El stops for folk flying in, and easily worth the moneys to stay in. Also, folk seem quite nice there and it's clean.

I am really unlikely to be going to this, unfortunately, because I will be stone cold broke due to graduating, and more than likely struggling to find work.

I don't really know that much about Chicago, but when I go down there for shows and such I just park at one of the El stations and ride it into downtown.  It's $3.00 for like 11 hours, but I'm not sure how much it is past that.

Okay so in Gabbly we were debating the merits of hostels versus hotels. Hostels are cheap but a bitch to plan for. Hotels are easier but more expensive.

What we have are yelley's hostel, this hostel that is wicked cheap and in a good location, but kinda iffy, and this hotel. It is in a great location, relatively cheap for a downtown Chicago hotel, and swanky as hell. Edith and I like it a lot. It is $190 a night for a double room, so split that between four people. Aaand you can add a person for $25 a night, which will actually make the cost per person per night go down, which is awesome. Also they have a lot of double rooms so we could probably get a few next to each other if we wanted to do that.

Thoughts?

I was all like, oh it's a thread about Chicago, I dont need to read that. OH SHIT I REALLY DO.

Anyway to be honest I don't really mind what dates we pick, because I will just build my holiday around that.  So far my vague plan is to appear in America before Chicago-con and road trip around with Sam until we find our way to the rest of the internet.  So whatever dates Sam says I AGREE.

For liz's hotel remember to add about $90/night for taxes.

Also, I just called the HI-Chicago to ask about how it works for groups to stay there if it's just a group of friends, and not like THE GIRL SCOUTS or whatever. Their groups manager should get back with me in a day or 3. I will post what I learn here.

Don't fucking make me be in charge of this shit, people. I am not your chaperone.

In all probability, I will still be in Chicago then, so I will have a couch space or two up for grabs when it gets closer to the time. If anyone's pressed for cash and doesn't mind sleeping in my apartment, it's cool with me. I don't think there's any point in assigning it this early, though.

Guys, I wanna go to this. If there's a Starwood hotel in the Chicago area we'll be in I can help out A LOT...

So... I can get, probably four or so double rooms at a base rate of $79.00+tax. This is staying at the Sheraton Chicago North, at 301 East North Water Street Chicago, Illinois 60611. If we add 2 people per room, we'd probably be looking at 79 to 99 plus tax. Now, I don't think this is too bad at all. Depending on the dates it might be a little bit higher, or not available. Therefore, I'd need to know as far in advance as possible. This is a goddamn Sheraton, which means it's a pretty nice hotel too.

They call me hotel wizard, you see
For I make reservations most magically.


No, seriously though. I actually work at a Starwood (sheraton, westin, four points, W) hotel so I get cheap rates on hotel rooms depending on time and location. I know that a Las Vegas westin room is 89.00 if I stay in the room, for friends/family it is 139.00. At the hotel I work at, the rate is 49.00 plus a tax that comes out to 55.01 exactly. Its not a bad price. But its in Phoenix. So, you know, it kinda sucks 6 months out of the year.

Get me dates though and I'll see what I can do about finding the rooms and stuff. There's a lot of hotels in the downtown Chicago area apparently? So if one doesn't work out I can try another.

We also have to hit up Hot Doug's. I know quite a few very cool people in Chicago so hopefully they can make some suggestions of fun things to do.

I am pretty set on coming to this but I would prefer it to be late August. Well, whatever. I don't want to mess with other people's plans too much. I don't know if Tania is planning on attending this one but hopefully events will transpire and she'll be able to make it too.

The problem with late August, as already mentioned, is that a good amount of people will probably be headed back to school. How about mid August? Is that good enough for you?

Also, PantsFTW- I like your idea a lot. A lot a lot. Let's make this work.

Guys, I will more than likely be going to this one, since Chicago is only about 7 hours away by train. I am all about staying at a hostel, unless my friend has a dorm room with a floor I can crash on.

No, I think that is for the room. People would split the cost.

Which would be amazing.

Great!! I'm all for it then!

Pants, I'm pretty certain we would all give you oral lovings if you could pull that off.

Kat and I would prefer the first weekend, but any of the weekends other than the last would work for us. Like a large chunk of others she'd be back in classes by that point.

Same here. Early-to-mid August is best for me. Can't make any promises about my participation, but I'll try.

So, by the time this rolls around, I'll be 20, just barely not old enough to go out drinking (assuming you all choose to do that at some point.) Should that deter me from coming? Should it not matter? Will we just be drinking in privacy, where it won't be an issue?

I wasn't at Tronno, but I would assume that there would be some of both.  And there would probably be, you know, some things that wouldn't be alcohol related.
