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 a community at and 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.

    If you take public transportation, D&B is a few blocks south of the Red Line's Clark and Division stop, or you could take the 22 (Clark Street) bus.

    We are almost always in the Oak Room, just ask at the front. Meetup starts officially at 7:00 and runs to 10:30, but it's ok to show up early (you may be without waitress though), and we don't always run later than 10. There is credit-card-only garage parking immediately south of the entrance to Dave & Buster's, it is $6 but only if you get your parking stub validated on the 2nd floor of Dave & Buster's (top of the escalator), otherwise it is I believe $24, so don't forget to validate.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
