The prior discussion thread rambles a lot, with a lot of side topics.
I’m therefore opening a new thread, and asking that folks PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – do not get involved in side discussions. Just post times/dates that you can (or can’t) make it for a Chicago Dope Fest. Keep this thread focused.
If you want to discuss side issues (past Chicago SD Get-togethers, how to handle multi-person restaurant bills, etc), go to the prior thread: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=15241750#post15241750 Let’s keep this one focused, focused, focused. It’s hard enough to tabulate and figure out who can be where when, without these distraction conversations. NOTE: If anyone does post extraneous stuff here, please REPORT it (little ! in red triangle in upper corner of post) and I will move it to the other thread.
And we need a volunteer to tabulate and co-ordinate. dalej42, since you started the prior thread, are you willing to do that?
