Ok, so meetup has returned the group to me which is great and thus ends the one week standoff of Etown Social held hostage but shaking it sultrily. Yes, it seems nuts but I can have some fun with it.
Thanks to all of you who supported me and the group. I really appreciate it. That being said, please don't email anyone with any angry messages. Night Life has actually been removed and I'm not sure that his asst organizers were real people anyway. I've left them in because they may want to actually show up to the Rhythm Room and have a rusty nail with us sometimes and they never did anything to anyone.
Of course if they are not real people then at least the one that is a real person will see this message and well...whatever. Just don't go emailing people.
Now in the future, here's what should happen in the event that any meetup organizer becomes incapacitated, suffers brain freeze, is stuck in a Turkish prison or misses the payment deadline by a day.
Meetup continues to try and bill said missing organizer for a period of time
The asst organizers are then offered a shot at the group for a period of time
THEN the group is up for grabs for a period of time
IF NO ONE steps up, then the group is dissolved
That being said, I have no intention of stepping down or seeing the group change drastically and if nothing else, there are always plenty of asst organizers on my list who could do a fantastic job of hosting for you if I were ever over worked or if I all of a sudden became an introverted party-phobe.
There. That all being said, we're on for Friday the 21st at 7:00. Happy Birthday to me and you and you and you!
This meetup exists to allow people in and around Evanston a venue for getting out of the house and meeting new people and sometimes to do some interesting things. We love to match diverse life experience with great conversation and a cocktail or too. Generally once people meetup us, they go away having had a good time. Our motto is have fun and don't be evil.
