    Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    Not to be out-done by our NorCal friends , Sebastian, Trevor Ash and I have decided to have a pizza night in Crystal Lake Illinois on Wednesday 8/17 at 7:00. Crystal Lake is northwest of Chicago so that will hopefully give some of our Southern Wisconsin members a chance to make it. I won't mention any names (Adina, Kelly, Chunk, Mike and Ken...).

    We'll meet at Nick's which is at Virginia St and Main. Post a reply here if you can make it, or PM me. One thing we'll talk about is an upcoming Chicago gathering in November, so bring your ideas! Hope to see you there!

    Count me in this fall...

    Steve,

    I'll be making my weekend trip to Chi-town sometime in November, so hopefully some of you can find your way into town while I'm there.

    Why don't you guys figure on the best dates for the most people, and I'll see if I can work my schedule around that...

    Heck yeah! Any first choice/second choice or a date that doesn't work for you? It just wouldn't be a Chicago Gathering without you!

    OK FINE! I'll be there. But for the pizza, NOT because I like you or anything.

    Kelly do you want to carpool? I'd be leaving from the Brookfield-ish area.

    I should be able to make it.

    Re: Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    A little guilt goes a long way. Hope you both (and others) can make it.

    Forgot to mention this earlier so I stole it from Rebekah's thread ;) : "this is a no-host event, you will be responsible for your own food/drink". Here's the website for Nick's Pizza and Pub. The moose head on the wall won't hurt you, I promise. I'll call for a reservation when it gets a little closer.

    Correction on the address:
    856 Pyott Road (at the corner Virgina and Pyott).
    815-356-5550

    Re: Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    Adina, I would love to carpool! Ummmm, the thing is, our family is *supposed* to be going to LA at some point. Everything is still up in the air right now, but we should be making concrete plans at least by the end of this week. I've been expecting that we'll be gone next week, but there's a chance it could be postponed. Or cancelled! SO ...

    I can *probably* make it, but I'll let you know ASAP if I can't.

    Clear as mud?


    And I'm only going for the pizza too. NOT because I really liked Trevor and Sebastian and Steve and Chunk and Adina (and Dennis, whatever happened to him?), OR because I want to meet Mike and Ken. Nope, not that at all. I just want the pizza. With artichokes.

    Chokes? Really? Cool! Glad to hear you're postponing your LA trip. Just for the pizza, of course.

    Re: Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    There's an *ever so slight* chance germinating here at Casa de Kelly that I may be leaving Chicago Pizza Night to fly directly to Nor Cal ... Corte Madera, to be specific. I just received my (late) newsletter from Book Passage, which announces that the Travel Writers & Photographers Conference is happening on August 18-21. I went last year as a photographer, and I was thinking of attending again this year as a writer. I just wrapped up a college writing course and I'm in the writing groove now. This just came up tonight, so my husband and I are discussing exactly what we're going to do. Maybe he'll fly out and meet me on the 22 and we'd drive down to LA together.

    OH, so much to do in August!!!

    Just blew my savings on a trip to Texas, but I will mark my calendar and see what I can work out.
    Sounds like a lot of fun...

    Re: Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    I just rode past Nick's Pizza on my bike today. Now I know the place, lol! I ride past it almost every day and never even stopped to think about it. It's a couple miles from where I live Place always looks pretty busy. I've had their pizza once but it was pickup. So, a week or so from today eh?

    Yep - coming up quick. So how many do we have? I'd like to call them on Monday for a reservation with an approximate number. Hope everyone can make it.

    OK. We finally decided we're not going anywhere this week, so I'm in! I *might* even stay overnight if I don't carpool with Adina.

    Adina, I will PM you about whether we can carpool.

    To everyone else that's holding back because your shy, busy, a little too far away, etc. Just go! It's hard to organize these things and we may not get the chance to meet you again.

    I'll see you all tomorrow.

    Re: Pizza near Chicago on 8/17!

    Well, the reservation thing was a good idea until I found out that they don't take them... They said it shouldn't be any problem though. Here's the page with phone number, address and directions - note it's the Crystal Lake location we'll be at, not Elgin!

    Hope to see everybody and we'll bring cameras (right?).
