Chicago Fantasy, Speculative and Science Fiction Community Monthly 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. When we don't get a room, we meet at the top of the escalators and request a table for 20. We get one consolidated bill - please bring cash, and remember the 12% tax and 18% automatic gratuity.

    the space we ended up with was fine for the 6 people who showed up. I say give it till March; if it doesn't get better by then....find something else to do.

    Apparently, there was some sort of communication gap with the departure of Stephanie and the room was not reserved for us. I don't think we arranged anything for next month, so someone should probably look into the matter, whether it's reserving that room or the smaller space we used last night.

    I arrived late, about 7:45. The Oak Room was empty, so I wandered upstairs where I found Neil, Bill, and several others. There were 7 in all, including myself. Did anyone arrive, but were unable to find us? I forgot to ask, were we told we could not meet in the Oak Room? It's not like it was being used and might have prevented a few people from finding us.

    I may be a little late (have to pick up some mail in Albany Park), but I will be there. I look forward to tomorrow.
