    Glad to see a meet up being planned. I'd prefer Thursday as well so we can all recognize each other throughout the weekend. Any time works for me.

    There's a couple food court areas that would make for a good meeting spot.

    If anyone wants to meet for dinner on Saturday, I'll be down. I sold my Friday pass. I'll be there Saturday/Sunday/Monday.

    I'll be at the Navy Pier Saturday Night, if anyone wants to hang. I will not be disclosing the whereabouts of my VIP badge, no matter how many margaritas you get me to drink however.

    Navy Pier is pretty cool, but I've never seen it at night. Must be spectacular.

    It is pretty cool, just don’t buy anything. Prices insane!

    May I suggest two meet-ups then. On Thursday afternoon for the on-con meet-up, and a chance to be able to recognize each other for the rest of the convention, and then Saturday evening for a an after-con occasion.

    Good idea

    Works for me. I intended to check out the KOTOR Cantina thing, but if it is anything like in London, it may be at a capacity pretty soon, so spending a chiller evening with the JCers sounds good.

    Sorry for the double post, but I just saw this announced: Lightsaber Battle at The Bean, 20:55 h, Saturday, April 13th. Should be 25 min walk from the Navy Pier, which is quite reasonable. The saber battle a long long time ago in London was epic, so I'm hoping to catch this one after/before the meet up in the town.

    The Bean / Millennium Park area is awesome.
    They picked a great spot to do that

    Did you get into the one you mentioned in London? I've always seen these Cantinas announced for various cons but haven't had the chance to go. What are they like?

    I think the Lightsaber battle would be a great backdrop to meet at on Sat. There is also a podcast meetup for different podcasts and their listeners that night at the Arc bar at the Hyatt. I may stop by that afterwards, but I would like to go to this Lightsaber battle first.

    Unfortunately I didn't get in. Even though we arrived pretty early. There was more interest then the organizers expected so it was a bit chaotic, and we were tired from queuing in wee hours, and didn't try harder. The swag was pretty cool though; they had nicely designed lanyards, luggage tags, and shirts and posters. Bummed to have missed out on the Chiss Ascendancy shirt. Iirc, there were in-game give aways, but IDK what cause I don't play.

    I won't be able to make it on Saturday, but it sounds like a great idea.

    For the Thursday meetup, would 3 be a good time to meet?

    That sounds good to me. Gives us some time to get adjusted and explore the show floor and hopefully get those rush-to things done.

    I got Cat Taber auto at 2:50 but my next one is 4:30 so hopefully it won’t take long and I’ll be able to stop by. We’re thinking the food court by the auto section right?

    Well, there's two. There's the black one and the gold one on the map.
