    Hey all! Does anyone remember the M.C.'s name during the spoken word? He mentioned he does poetry on Tuesdays somewhere. Did anyone pick up that info? Thanks

      Yes, Bistro by the Pier has open mic spoken word poetry on Wednesday nights. I've been talking to the venue about possibly having a meetup there. Will keep everyone posted.

    The place is called Bistro By The Pier. 580 E. Illinois Street. I've never been (new to Chicago) but I looked it up after "Binky's" performance. Looks like a nice place. They have a website.

    The venue was great but there wasn't a lot of interaction between the meetup members that I noticed. Ppl were cliquey.

      Hi Lisa, I hate you missed the members who came a bit early. We had a table with a meetup sign next to the wine table, that was a great opportunity to meet some really cool peeps before the event really started. Hope to see you next time.

    Hi everyone, thanks for coming out last night, I was in awe of A.W.E. We have to do it again. It was good to meet so many new members and we were happy to support CBPSN members who played a major part in making it happen. This event featured so many wonderful things like the exhibits, spoken word performances and moving around from different levels of the museum checking out some really nice fashion, and I have to mention... the food and DJ were AWESOME!!,I'm so sorry if any of you didn't get a chance to meet and interact as much as other events with the GREAT members of CBPSN. It's kinda hard to interact properly when you're moving around and there's so much to see and do with the general public. We'll do something a bit different next time, hopefully it'll help. Have a great weekend everybody!!!

    Hey, fam!
    We (The DuSable Museum) are going to be doing some promotional photos at A.W.E. and would love to have CBPSN be a part of it. If any of you are at the event by 7:30pm, please meet me in the "Geoffrey & Carmen" exhibition. We'll get some shots of the group touring that exhibition and we can also get an official group shot later on that night. Is that cool?

      Thanks, Queing. Sounds good

      That was a silly ? It clearly says the time. I guess I wasn't paying attention or didn't read carefully on my phone.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
