There's an idea -- invite Chicago's sports media and see which ones have the guts to show up...

No, it didn't. Of course... I was only there for 4 of the games.. so I might not be a credible source.

Steff, remember that dumb story put out by some reporter, he
went to PUffers AND Jimbos, and the article basically said
Cub fever was all over the city, even enemy bars were rooting for them? OF course, everyone at WSI disputed that, and thats when Kass wrote an Article disputing that, about McNallys
etc etc. I remember a lot of people being mad here about Jimbos esp

Jimbo is definitely a Sox fan. His son may like the Cubs.

1. Any chance that we could get one of the WSI "officials" to sell some WSI merchandise at the bash? I'm sure there would be a demand for WSI T-Shirts, and the shipping costs could be rolled back into the site.

2. If there's gonna be a big crowd, it might be worthwhile to have name tags, particularly since most posters use a handle instead of their given names.

Thanks for setting this up, Henry.

I just got Private Messaged from a couple of you needing DRX,
so here they are:

Take I-90/94 as if you were going to the Ballpark, and get off
at 35th Street and go West. Honk as you pass the ball park
and take that to Halsted St. go RIGHT on Halsted, go
one block and look for a Parking Spot, PUFFERS is on the west side of the street, You cant miss it ......

Public Trans: Cta bus #8 Halsted stops right in front of the place.

Red Line Train to USCF drops you off about a mile from Halstead. So you could walk it or wait for a 35th st bus to come along once you get to the L stop.

Or, since the Red Line route requires at least some walking in the cold weather, you could take the Orange Line to Halsted and get on the #8 bus going South. You can wait for the bus inside of the (relatively warm) station.
