    As the last one to cash-out tonight I grabbed the ever essential folder and our super secret cheat sheet explicating characters and themes for the book we discussed --no worries I will bring it to the next meeting. Fending off numerous patrons to secure the group's intellectual property was nothing but demonstration of commitment and confirmation to the level of fun I had during the event. Jests aside the meeting was a blast!

    It was a pleasure meeting and discussing the book with all of you and my anticipation for next month is high and this next meeting I can actually claim I've read the whole book. Thanks to Chris and Julie for the organizational work inclusive to title and venue selection; thanks to all the new reading group friends for a thoughtful discussion.

    See you all in a few weeks. Stay warm!

      Thank you David for defending our intellectual property! Looking forward to seeing you next time.

    Lacked time to read the whole thing, but I coming to the event anyway -doubt I am the only one in this spot. Rather meet the group and listen than wait till the next meeting. See you all later today.

      I hate typing on tablets. Words disappear and preemption makes it worse.

    Life is getting the better of me this week--I'll definitely try for next month!

      No worries. Thanks for adjusting the RSVP. We'll see you at the next one!

    Looks like there should be a better turnout than poetry night at OG. ;)

      You will be missed Heather.

    Does anybody have any particular short stories that they really liked (were their favorite)? It might help those who may not have time to finish all the stories, to know which short stories they can prioritize.

      I read this book about 2-3 months ago so I will need some refreshers on the stories! :)

      March 12, 2013

    • Chris

      I might need a few refreshers too, and I just read this the past 2 weeks. :P

  • Patti S.

    Does this start at 7 or 7:30? Thanks!

    March 10, 2013

    • Chris

      That should read 7:30, but if you'd like to order a sandwich or socialize feel free to arrive anytime between 7 and 7:30. I plan on arriving around 7:00pm.

    I haven't been to this particular place. Does it matter if we want to eat if we come early or order during the meeting? I noticed at C.U.B. that we had a server coming by and ate during the meeting, but not sure what the setup will be for this one. I had planned to order and eat during the meeting but don't want to do it if it will be disruptive.

      At this location, the patrons go up and order drinks and food from the bar. The food is a variety of hot and cold sandwiches (and paninis). I believe they will deliver the sandwiches to the tables. And no worries, it won't be disruptive.

    Okay, no flu or cold. I am in for this meeting. Second attempt at a 1st meeting. See you all in a few days.

    A week away from the meet-up. I wanted to mention again that I'd be happy to carpool and take some folks to the bar. I've got one person riding along and I can comfortably seat three more. The parking lot at OG is a bit small (although there's street parking). Just shoot me a message or leave a comment here, and we'll coordinate.

      Just confirmed it, it's going to be at Original Gravity in Milan.

      February 19, 2013

    • Patti S.

      Oh! Thanks so much!!

      February 19, 2013

  • Chris

    If anyone is interested in carpooling or just riding along with me from Ann Arbor (I have room for up to four people), please leave a comment below or send me a message through here.
