My group all took the day (or night) off work, so we are going to try to get there extra early this month.
Always a great time. If you have never attended before you're really missing out a fun evening!

If you guys are coming early, I will try to get my DJ rig happening by 6 instead of 7 so you have some tunes to listen to.

I live too far away to attend this one, but I do have some friends who live close by and in the Chicago area. I will give them a ringy-ding-ding and tell them to get themselves to it!

Wish I could be there! Everyone who goes, be sure to take pics and post them here for me!

Another nice event.

I brought some friends this time and we shared a Rum Keg - I though this drink was awesome, and a good bargain (for TV's) on the booze per dollar scale.

Thanks to the Windy City Islanders for a great show.

We'll see you all next month!
