Search Engine Social - Chicago, Dec.
Posted 19 November 2004 - 02:18 PM
Since you are all coming out to Chicago (many I have not met yet), I thought it would be great if we could plan something, somewhat informally (socially) to just get together before departing after the Seminars?
The reason I offer is because I can have a "spot" so-to-speak in the suburbs (Schaumburg) at a Restaurant/Brewery (I knew you'd like that word...)
I guess I would just need to feel confident that a number of people would show? I know we can get the word out a little... what do you think?
I was thinking Thursday Night December 16th - the last day of the show? How are your calendars??
Ladies cutting out early could head to Schaumburg and shop at the Woodfield Mall??? before coming over...to socialize. This place is 2 blocks away from there.
Since I would (somehow) be sponsoring this "social event" I would probably cover the Beer (remember, it's a micro brewery too), and maybe even the wine??? I also care that everyone has a "safe" way back... hotel, whatever.
My business card will get you in and I can hand them out at the conference? You know, 5 or 10 each so you can all invite? Could this have some social potential?

On the other end of the spectrum, if you hit the bar at the conference hotel the night before the conference starts you'll get to meet most people. That's where everybody seems to congregate after they arrive in town and get settled in their rooms.

Folks of all genders, Woodfield is awesome! I heard that it has the most retail space of any other US mall. We don't have Marshall Fields in St. Louis, so I always like to have a look around there.
Ikea - the Swedish (?) home store - is just across Golf road in that area, too. Good prices and a different variety.
Then there's Galayan's on the other side of the mall (Think they call that strip "The Streets of Woodfield" or something like that...can see it from 53 just south of the mall). They have a rock-climbing wall that's entertaining to watch.

The hardest part would be dragging my sorry ass out of the hotel bar to go to a different bar that was far away. I get lazy and will be like...hey beer is beer...why travel to get it...

(No matter what, though, I'm going shopping at the mall...probably hit it the weekend before though so I can meet up with a friend who lives just North of there in Buffalo Grove. Oh yeah, and Menards! We only have Lowes and Home Depot here, so I always want to check out their construction stuff.)
Geez, I hope four days is long enough for me to get all the extra-curricular activities in!

Maybe you're right... too late, too far. It gets to this time of year and I get all mushy... ...wanted to somewhat welcome you all to Chicago - which has been known to hold it's own.
Randy's idea is the best, just means I need to go into the City the night before?
I just spend so much time on the computer and with clients lately, that I thought it would be good to get out a little more (socially) - sounds like something my shrink would say - - Thanks for your feedback, you never know until you try.
(getting out with a hundred other web marketing professionals does not qualify as socializing) - just came across my psychology ticker....

I appreciate the offer (as I'm sure everybody else does), but I agree that it might be best to just wing it.
