OK - at least 3 are in for a movie, so sounds like that should be the next planned event. 

Does anyone besides me want to agree to be the "host" for the event? I can't commit to that date at this point.

For a rain backup, there were two people that offered their conference rooms - I will PM them to see if they are available that night and whether one of those locales might work as a backup.

Option Room could be an "option"! ;-)

Hmm, good to know about the booze, I've not been there for an event in a few years. I just remember being really angry that I was being asked to dump out my water - it was a really hot day and I didn't want to have to keep buying it. Fortunately they didn't take the actual bottle so I just refilled in from the water fountains in the underground bathrooms.

Glad everything went well! Wish I could have made it. June 21st is out for me as well because that's our anniversary. (I actually suggested going to the movie, but he vetoed.) Hopefully I can make the August one!

This has just came across my mind and I am sure some of you may think it is a bit crazy. I was reading a recent post relating to getting invited to free dinner/events by financial advisers and asset mangers and this dawned on me. I have never been invited and I like free food/ticket :)

Given the combined wealth of all the MMM in Chicago, we could potentially broach this idea and offer to sit in one of their presentations in return for free food/event tickets :)

I am curious to see the combined asset value of the folks in Chicago (I am guessing in the 30-50 million range (if not more), which should peak the interest of any adviser/manager).

Just a thought.

There is a Meet Up group in the link below. Sign up there and you can add these events to your calendar easily.  Terry is the leader of that group. He's going to add the meetups from this forum onto the meetup calendar.  Last night the meetup.com note had 23 RSVPs yes...and you know a bunch of us showed up.  It's nice to get the reminders of the upcoming event.

http://www.meetup.com/Financial-Freedom-through-Frugal-Living-Chicago/

Otherwise, here's the next currently scheduled event.....

August 13, 2016. Saturday - 7:00pm-?. Brehon Pub - 731 N Wells Street, Chicago

Also ETA - Thanks Terry for finding and saving my son's MMM shirt. Whew.

Is the Aug 13 meetup still on? It hasn't been posted to the meetup site. I'd like to come since I wasn't able to make the meeting at the Option Room. I'm happy to help plan as well. Let me know!

Yup, I still plan on going, and my wife should be able to join. I suggest we meet in the far back center portion of the lawn for the best chance of finding each other and being the least crowded. You never know what night is going to be popular, and tomorrow is the first movie of the season and a good one at that! And it's the 30th anniversary. So might get a crowd.

I was at Millennium Park last week and can confirm it's still BYOB and food!

Anyone have a visible marker/flag of some sort? I can try printing something on letter-sized paper but that's not much.

The movie starts at 6:30 pm, and the group can bring potluck picnic items to share, with BYOBeverages.

I think a few people have also bailed on this activity - I cannot make it tonight as the cousins from CA want to see the Cubs game at 7pm instead and they are borrowing my car.

I really want to make it to the August meetup since I missed the first two. Hopefully it'll be as successful as the first one. It looks like they have outdoor seating--maybe if it's pet-friendly I can bring Tau.

Hello,
I haven't been able to attend any of the meetups so far but I took the initiative to post the August 13th Brehon Pub event on the meetup site. A good number of people have already RSVP'd there, but am posting here as well for those not on meetup.

https://www.meetup.com/Financial-Freedom-through-Frugal-Living-Chicago/events/232738483/

Hope to see you there!

We're volunteering at Northalsted Market Days, so we might make it or might not depending on how late we get done and how drained we feel. I'm pretty introverted, so I'm not sure if I can handle a day of massive crowds followed up with meeting new people (although I'm sure you're all delightful!).

Hi everyone - a bunch of out of towners are going to be in the area in late October. We would love to meet up with the Chicago MMM'ers.

Saturday, Oct 22:

Anyone who's available on that date, speak up! We can do either afternoon or evening, and location is TBD. Suggestions are welcome. When the NYC group meets, we usually head to a park for a few hours.

I can probably make that date! If it's a park (other than Millennium or Maggie Daley), I can also bring the Tau. Navy Pier is also pet friendly.

The retreat is directly west of  Montrose Beach on the map...will that still be open in October? It looks like a nice place to walk around/hang out if the weather is good.

The entire lakefront of Chicago is open and publicly accessable all year round. Montrose beach is fine, North Avenue Beach is nicer. If the weather is nice the lakefront of Chicago is a spectacular place to be, a bike path/running path and sidewalks run the entire length. If the wind is off the lake and it is cold and rainy... well, not so much.

Some of us are from out of town, convening in Chicago for 3-4 days.  Just hoping to meet some of the local MMM fauna.

But that sounds cool. If folks are up for events close together - go for it.

I will be volunteering at Open House Chicago and then checking out the sites out when I'm not working.  =)

For future reference, it's a pretty sweet gig: volunteer 4 hours, get a priority pass for the weekend, get 2 tickets for a free walking tour, and get half off a membership to CAF.

Come as You Are Meetup Saturday 10/22 at 11:00am-1:00pm - North Avenue Beach, Chicago 

There are 9 MMM Ladies from across the US doing a "Come as You Are" retreat in Chicago Th-Sun 10/20-10/23.  We'd all love to see some Chicago folks, and we haven't had a big Chicago meetup in awhile.  It will be picnic style, so bring your own blankets and some food you enjoy/can eat and might be willing to share. Beverages are BYOBeverage as well.  All the ladies are staying at a house in the area, so we'll bring our own food/beverages. 

Temps are supposed to be in the 60's, so make sure to bring a warm fleece or something. 

Barring rain, we'll meet at the North Avenue Beach park at 11:00am on Saturday.  If it is raining (less than 10% chance), we'll converge at Dollop, 4181 N. Clarendon in Chicago.  Frankly, I've never been to North Avenue Beach or Dollop.  I also have no idea if the prices are mustachian at Dollop or not, but  it's less than 10% likely we'll need it. 

Below is a link for maps and info on Dollop.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dollop+Coffee+Co./@41.9579445,-87.6584751,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x880fd3c8f47281b5:0x7c7d5a92c640af79!8m2!3d41.9579445!4d-87.6497204

Can you reply here so we'll get an idea of who to be expecting.

MMMrs that are planning to be in attendance so far are :
  • G-dog
    NinetyFour
    Jessa
    Heidi
    Third Noble Truth
    MonkeyJenga
    Couponvan
    Gray Matter
    JRA64

Couponvan, that sounds great! I'm in and will probably bring a friend (my wife is out of town unfortunately). What is a "come as you are" retreat?

North Ave beach is a great idea and should be pretty calm this time of year. And sunny! Note that technically alcohol is not allowed but a thermos of Irish coffee seems pretty reasonable to me.

FYI there is a (crappy but well-located) restaurant there, Castaways, but it is already closed for the season. I think the public bathrooms will still be open.

Looking forward to it!

How will the lake be?
Come as you are is a women's retreat based on a discussion on a couple of journals. Basically - we should get together! Yes!

Like for swimming? Probably for a serious endeavor only. Maybe very low 60s? They stop reporting temp on Labor Day :(. I would need a wet suit! But I haven't been in the water in months.

Not full swim - getting feet wet. Sounds too cold. I figured it has so much mass that it wouldn't cool down very fast. Though maybe the shallows are different.

North Ave beach is a great idea and should be pretty calm this time of year. And sunny! Note that technically alcohol is not allowed but a thermos of Irish coffee seems pretty reasonable to me.

FYI there is a (crappy but well-located) restaurant there, Castaways, but it is already closed for the season. I think the public bathrooms will still be open.

Looking forward to it!

Great! Looking forward to seeing you. (I'll have to bring a sippy cup for my adult beverage.)

My midterm projects are all due this weekend, but I'll try to make it if I get sufficient school work done. Should I try to bring the Tau if the weather is cat friendly?

The infamous TAU!! Oh yes - do bring him.  Your mind will need a break and the cat needs a walk.  (Even though I'm allergic, I LOVE cats...outside they are way better than inside, as I can admire them and not sneeze.) It's going to be cold, but given he's a Chicago cat, it shouldn't be anything he can't handle. :-)
