    Hey everyone! Are we still meeting this Thursday? Wasn't sure if a location was found yet. I know Arielle suggested a picnic on Saturday which sounds like fun also! Hope to hear soon :0)

      I'd love to get together again, too. But tomorrow and Saturday are both rough. Anyone free on Sunday?

      I promise it won't be this last minute for our next one! If everyone can agree on it I'm down to postpone the meet up.. I am actually pretty sick sooo it would work out perfectly for me. Feel free to text me at[masked]! Also and when I figure out how to make it possible for members to create meetups ill open it up. Crazy month for me with the end of the cubs season and beginning of football. Sorry for the disorganization this month (Alicia is probably nodding her head at the smirky little comment she made) :)

    Okay so I'm having a HUGE problem finding a venue and I finally figured out why.. NW is having a 500 person pub crawl tomorrow night. I can probably get Bar Louie in Skokie to give us their private room. LMK what you think

    September 25, 2013

    • Erynn

      That sounds great, I can make it.

    Another idea - Farmhouse Evanston. I've never been there but has various room options for larger groups. At the corner of Church and Orrington.

    September 25, 2013

  • Marguerite C.

    What about Prairie Moon in Evanston (Orrington just south of Grove)? They have a room in the back that might be able to accommodate a group of our size though Thursdays may be a challenge since football is on and I think the front bar is geared towards that. This Thursday is probably too soon but perhaps in a week or two...? I'll try to think of other possible locations.

    Hey girlies :) having kind of a tough time trying to find a venue for the next event in Evanston. Any suggestions from you ladies?? Btw the absolute next book is The Kite Runner.

    September 5, 2013

    • Nicole

      Thanks, I will definitely look into it!!!

      The Farmhouse is really hard to get a rese at, esp for such a large group. I love Union Pizza and they have a great wine menu as well. they might be accommodating to a large group.

    By the by, for those new to the area: one of my favorite restaurants in Evanston is Lucky Platter, just south of where we were last night. Baha'i temple is in Wilmette -- quite beautiful and only seven (though I think an eighth is being built in Chile?) in the world. Just FYI!!

    Thanks to Nicole for organizing this wonderful Meetup. I had a wonderful time meeting some truly great people and enjoyed the conversation. I will definitely be back for future events with this group.

  • Nicole

    Really quickly.. I contacted Celtic knot way in advance and let them know the purpose of our coming there, about how many people and they were so accommodating!! I told them that more than likely we would be needing separate checks but I do ask, if possible, to bring cash for tomorrow so that maybe we can limit the amount of separate checks for the waitress.. Just a thought. If its an inconvenience, feel free to request a separate check. Thanks!!

    I am not able to make it, but LOVED The Book and it came at a perfect time in my life!!! I definitely will be at the next one and if you need any suggestions mine would be Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, so good!!!

    August 29, 2013

    • Nicole

      At least you enjoyed the read! See you at the next one and I will add your suggestion to the random pick. Thanks :)

    By the way, I'm curious to know if anyone has previously read this book?

      I read it back in 2011, so it's been awhile. I'll need a refresher, but I loved it!

      August 10, 2013

  • Eva S.

    Hi Nicole, I've read this book before, though it was a looong time ago. It's a simple read... I love all of Coelho's stuff so I don't mind re-reading!

    August 10, 2013

  • Nicole

    Lisa, thanks for the place recommendation! I will call this week to see if we can potentially meet there for next month. As far as the book recommendation goes I am going to ask everyone to write down a book choice and I am going to toss them in a hat and choose. I will put your recommendation in the hat :) Shari, we are scheduled to meet the last Thursday of each month around the same time. I will post the next event after the first so I can let you know what book it will be.

    August 10, 2013

  • Shari

    I can not make this one but would love to join-please let me know when the next one is.

    Dear Ladies, Thursday, August 29th we have a Sound Healing at my yoga studio so I won't make this one. I suggest the next one be at The Goddess Wine Bar on Main and we choose the book Red, Hot & Holy by Sera Beak.
