Chicago Gathering
« on: August 08, 2013, 05:26:49 AM »

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF KASHAN-KON CHICAGO 2014 2013!!!
I'm planning on flying up to Chicago over labor day weekend and I'd really like to meet some of my fellow #finalfighters and brontoforumites who live in and around the Chicago area.

Currently my plan is to fly in on Friday evening and see a musical about basketball (btw somebody should come see that with me), then see the city on Saturday and Sunday. I know Silversong is planning on coming in too, and I was hoping we could get enough people together to do a proper meet up for dinner and maybe rent a karaoke room here on Saturday night. I was also planning on seeing the art institute and the aquarium while I was in town, along with a couple of architectural sites if anybody is interested in hanging out for that.

So everybody sign up, this will be totally rad!

Sure. I'll probably be free a year from now to hang out.

Was disappointed to find out that the play was not Air Bud: The Musical.

I'd totally go but seeing as it's the first time since May I've had any sort of money after paying bills, I'm going to have to bank it.

Sorry, chum.

All, however, is not lost.

I do dinners, but karaoke is usually a painful thing for me... Frownyface.

Classic, we will not make you sing, and I promise that Kashan and my singing is not painful!

So I thought I'd bump this again. I'm planning on doing dinner and karaoke this saturday, and anybody in the greater Chicago area who can should come. Drop me a line if you're interested.

I was hoping one of the locals would make a suggestion for where to get dinner. Karaoke would be here.

I have a lot of suggestions (of varying quality) for where to get dinner, do you have any requirements for what you guys eat?

I am always looking for excuses to visit Renga-tei! But that's not a super-viable option.

Why isn't it super viable? I think everybody in the partly will probably enjoy sushi.

It's a Japanese restaurant... I don't know if I can vouch for its sushi, which is merely "good".

If you want sushi... there's a BYOB in Edgewater not too far... It's called Taketei and I've been looking for an excuse to go again, though big eaters will want to pre-game.

On transportation, I'm ignorant of how terrible navigating Chicago by car is. Are we better off meeting up somewhere and then carpooling to dinner/the karaoke place, or would we be better of just using public transit all around?

This is also just assuming you have a car I guess.

Also now that I realize that place is for Japanese food and not specifically sushi I'm actually more inclined to go. We don't have a lot of non-sushi Japanese food in OKC.

It depends on the number of people we have... Parking anywhere in the city is also sometimes a matter of luck, but we're not downtown. It's not going to be murderously expensive to park on the street.

Yeah, I think I may just make a reservation for 6 at that Renga Tei place since Meikai seems okay with it and I know Silver and my l5r friends will be into it.

edit: reservation made for 6 people at 8pm. I can call to change it if we decide that's not the best time.
