Chicago Meetup - 2015
« on: May 30, 2015, 02:48:57 PM »
To all of you that have been asking about Chicago meet-up III...we have selected a tentative date.  It would be Saturday, July 18th at Brian's house, @zavod44 .  Last year was a successful get together with his ideal back yard with an abundance of vintage grills already in place. 
Anyone who would like to make the trip is welcome.  You'll be sure to have a great time, have great food, and be in the presence of MANY historic Weber grills.  Everyone is welcome to bring grills with them for display or to cook on.  The more the better as there will be lots of photos worth taking.  If you would like to make your favorite dish or appetizer on the grill...that always makes for a great time and to try different foods!
Stay tuned for further details and if you have any questions, feel free to contact Brian or myself! 

The following is the most up to date list of members attending and dishes they will be bringing.  I will update this as it changes.  Feel free to bring some friends of yours if you like that might like to be exposed to Weberitis!   Lets try and have everyone bring a favorite grill of yours (if you have room for it).  We'll do some type of photo collection for everyone with their grill.

Start time will be anytime from noon till whenever.
Brian's address is as follows
1266 Sycamore St
Elgin, Illinois 60123

Members planning to attend:        Food to make/bring           

Zavod44           +1                      Chicken thighs

Put me and my wife in pencil in case it needs to be erased.  Need to find a place to dump the kids but it looks like we will be there.
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

While I have met several of you, it will be great to put a face with a name of some of you that I have not yet met.

Looking forward to meeting you in person LB..

Hope you can make it!  Always fun to meet new people and put a face with the name!

I was born in Chicago and raised up in Park Ridge in the 50's/60's.   Can't make that time frame but will be in Woodstock, IL Labor Day weekend on my way through.   Have a great time and I'll try to make next year!!
