Chicago Fantasy, Speculative and Science Fiction Community July Meetup

Fans of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Speculative Fiction, come and socialize with your fellow fen!
We're a social group that exists to have fun while discussing our SF interests---comics, gaming, books, movies, tv shows. Whatever your taste you'll probably find someone who shares at least one of your interests.
We love to gather and have created our own website and community at to facilitate that, we have a presence here to let those who haven't heard of us or are new in town join the fun.
Dave and Buster's has been great about giving us a room of our own, all we have to do is order something and pay for it--simple, no?

    It was an awesome night! Some of us hung around outside for almost an hour... until nearly 1AM, we were so hesitant to leave!

    It was an excellent event! Lots of folks who haven't been around in a while returned, and many wonderful conversations were had. The AC wasn't quite keeping up with us which was a vague annoyance, but that was my only complaint. Overall, a very relaxing and enjoyable evening!
