I'm down for meeting some "local" HB. Count me in. Oh is there a for sure time...parking is always hell for me in WP.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 12:40
Someone should go out and take pictures of some of the Shops the Chi has to offer!

95% sure I'm down, so just put me down for the damn thing. I'll have to book a hotel and what not. Don't really know many folks in the Chi but me and my girl will be there, and possibly another lady friend or two.

Anybody want to kick it at the hotel room after? We could make it a little drinking party or something!smokeyface


Ok, I can get a 2 night stay at the Ramada in Glendale Heights, Illinois for $50. It's supposed to be close to Chicago, but how close is it really? Also, I have no clue about dirrections, would anybody be willing to pick my girl and I up from our hotel?
Jul 29, 2008 @ 14:06
oh shit!
an HB rape party!?
Jul 29, 2008 @ 14:14
^^Haven't made them yet, but yeah 20 miles. Also, isn't there like a train I can catch which has a day pass ticket? Any clue how much that ticket costs? I might have stayed at this hotel before a few years back. Is there a mall near here? I might go with this because then I'll get the whole weekend for only $50 when anywhere else I'd be paying 3-4 times that.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 14:46
Ya you can get a train to chicago from all the subarbs, you'll just have to travel back and forth a bit. In the end you will be saving a lot more by booking in Glendale. I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing that weekend but I know I'll be around the area on Sunday for some bbq an alum is throwing. Saturday trips to Chicago are always fun though so I'll probably be able to go. Forget about malls, just shop downtown.

edit: and drinking party is a good call. i'll look and see if there are any concerts then too
Jul 29, 2008 @ 14:50
^^^An Alum of what?

Can't wait to get back to Wisconsin, cuz I'll finally be getting pussy again!! Been without it for like the whole summer.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 15:21

Jul 29, 2008 @ 15:53
Not gonna be there.....sorry.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 18:31
^^^^ amherst college. i go there.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 21:38
Wordddd...this sounds ill, I'm about 80% in. I come back from Toronto on the 12th, and school resumes on the 25th so this fits perfectly...I'll try to save some of my money and not spend it all in T.O. so I can shop with fellow HB'ers and whatnot.



Jul 29, 2008 @ 21:41
How about 1 Pm?
Jul 29, 2008 @ 22:51
im down
Jul 29, 2008 @ 22:58
Yeah I'm down, might have football for a little while if its the 16th but ill figure it out. Sounds cool.
Jul 29, 2008 @ 23:47
Just so everybody knows, having 15-30 people is cool, and I have personally thrown meetups like that in the Bay, but just remember a smaller group is easy to control, and will move on faster from shop to shop. I'm even coming all the way from California a few days early so I can make it out to Chicago for this summit I kid you not!

If anything we can kick it and have a mini summit with the folks who do show up and get something to drink after, or drink back at my hotel room or some shit. Either way I am looking forward to the Chi as I've only been twice, once for only a few hours waiting on my train and never for more then a day. Come to think about it the last time I went it was almost winter, and cold as shit!!! I was also escorting a blind kid which wasn't fun at all. Took this fool forever to move!

Trust I will not flake!!

How about 1 Pm?

That sounds cool. That or 12:30. Either way you're the boss so make it happen.smokeyface
Jul 29, 2008 @ 23:54
hope *****s dont flake out
Jul 30, 2008 @ 00:15
an early time like 12 or 1 sounds perfect. I usually have tons of family shit planned late @ night so the earlier the better, gives me more time to kick it with the fellas.

Its whatever's clever...I'm gonna keep checking up and I'm almost 100% down. And if I give my word, I wont flake. I'm very attentive to my not breaking of promises


Jul 30, 2008 @ 01:24
90% in... this should be dope
Jul 30, 2008 @ 03:05
I'm still back home in MPLS till late August. I'd be there otherwise.
Jul 30, 2008 @ 06:09
I'll be working but it'd be nice of y'all to stop by...SolematesChicago, that is.
Jul 30, 2008 @ 11:06
Can someone possibly take some pictures of the area and some of the shops around?? I have no clue where I am coming from or going? Possible dirrections from the metro?

Pictures help a lot more then you guys would think. Folks see pictures of all the dope shops and it makes them want to go.
Jul 30, 2008 @ 12:06
i might be able to go, probably
Jul 30, 2008 @ 12:27
