Chicago FIRE - MEET UP TODAY! February 24 at 4pm in Rosemont


#1

Hey all!!

The holidays are over, I’m fresh home from CampFI, and I am already feining for more time with my fellow money nerds. Since all of our other meetups have been in the city, let’s make this one a little easier for a few of our burbs peeps. To make it also accessible to the city folk, I thought ROSEMONT may be a good place to meet. The blue line takes you right there or there is plenty of parking for the outlet mall.

McCormick and Schmicks has an awesome happy hour from 4-630pm (some of us met at the one downtown last summer) with great prices. If anyone has another idea feel free to shout it out! Otherwise:

McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks
5320 N. River Road
Rosemont, IL 60018

I realize it isn’t as convenient for everyone but I would like to get a head count to see if there is interest. If not, we can move on to a Plan B.

Thanks!! (I am tagging everyone that has signed up to be a part of the Chicago Fire Group. If you would prefer not to be tagged in future posts, please let me know. If you are reading this and I missed tagging you and you want to be tagged in future posts, let me know that too!)

I’m down and the blue line is my friend.


#7

Happy New Year, @MissMazuma (and all)!

I put it on the calendar, but I’m aware we’ve been flaky lately. We have to ration our babysitter use, is all! :money_mouth_face:

Hope we can make it!


#8

Ugh. I’m crushed. Leaving town that day. A week before?


#9

Hmm…am I right that this is on a Saturday? Maybe I should use my Southwest Companion Pass and fly on down to Chicago? It’s like 4,000 to 8,000 southwest points for my wife and I to fly down.


#10

We aren’t keeping track of all your no show’s…or are we?? :wink:

We’d love to see you but I totally get it if you can’t make it. There will always be others!


#11

Sounds like a worthy cause! We are meeting in the burbs but there is much to do in the city before/after. The train takes you right to where we are meeting. I’d love to meet Mrs Financial Panther!


#12

I’m out of town the week before but there is nothing stopping you from getting a meet up going that weekend as well! There is always someone down to chat. :slight_smile:

Also, you weren’t on my original list so I will add you now!


#13

I’ll have to ask her and see if she’s down for it - we got a lot of travel we need to do this year with this pass and we do like Chicago. Would just need to think about hotel possibilities then next.


#14

responding now so I keep this on calendar… maybe we need to make a trip down the the windy city the weekend of Feb 24… :smirk:


#15

That’s what I like to hear!!


#16

We are planning on going, just trying to get a sitter lined up! It’s on the calendar though! I’ll share it in the FinCon local group too to see if there’s interest again!


#17

And now I wish I was still in Chicago


#18

@GoldenHandcuffs this is the thread for the February meetup. Just wanted to make sure you saw… let @MissMazuma know if you can make it so she can make plans for her headcount. Hope to see you there!


#19

Count me in on Feb 24!


#20

Thank you. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult for me to make meet ups that are outside of downtown and I don’t think I can make the next one. But I hope to see you guys in the near future at other meet ups!
