Christmas For The Stranded

Christmas is a time to get together with family.

Well that is if your family's not hundreds of miles away and already spent your vacation time on an awesome Thanksgiving holiday... Long story short, this meetup is for anyone who's stranded in Chicago.


Let's face it, if Chicago anything like New York City, everywhere will be dead. So, let's be proactive agents of our festal destiny.

• If I get a good suggestion, I'll be glad to lead us there.

• If enough people show, I'll be glad to host. (Depaul Area)

• If I don't hear anything, I'll be glad to order Chinese food and watch Woody Allen movies.


Whether you're stranded or traveling, Happy Holidays!

Thank you all for contributing to this awesome meetup group!


THIS WILL BE POTLUCK STYLE: Please bring food and/or drinks.

    Anyone interested in doing a poker night?
    Chinese food, alcohol, and gambling. It's what Christmas really is about.

    I can bring some alcohol. Let me know if you have something specific in mind that I can get.

    December 23, 2013

    • Corwin

      I'll be bringing a bunch of craft beer. You can obviously never have too much of that and we do have a lot of thirsty people coming, but a few bottles of liquor probably wouldn't hurt.

      December 23, 2013

    • Andrii K.

      A few bottles of liquor it is.

      December 23, 2013

      December 23, 2013

    December 22, 2013

  • nchop

    December 22, 2013

  • Pete P.

    guess I'm not the only one stuck here, but why not the 24th? so we can get drunk and sleep in the next day.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
