Most nights are OK with advance notice. Downtown Chicago is best for me.
Hearts, spades, and bridge are my 3 top choices, with poker a distant 4th. Bridge is actually my favorite (I often travel to play in bridge tournaments all over the country), but I love all 3 games. If anyone is interested in getting together for some informal hearts or spades games, in addition to our official meetups, I'd be happy to host, especially on weekends (I have a good card table, a convenient downtown location for which I can provide inexpensive parking, etc.).
1. Playing sports, especially golf, racquetball, tennis & volleyball. 2. Playing board games that involve strategy or skill: e.g., Taboo, Scrabble, chess, Settlers of Catan, Dune, etc. 3. Dining out, especially if accompanied by a spirited conversation or debate. 4. Watching sports, especially football and baskeball (go Bulls and Bears!!). 5. Almost anything that involves an intellectual challenge!
I love playing cards with good players. When not playing cards, I work as an attorney (started my own law firm a few years ago).
