Chicago NetSquared August Meetup

Please join us at Grant Park for this month's NetTuesday! We'll share a few brief updates, self-organize into small group discussions on your favorite NPTech topics, and then when the sun sets hang out and watch the classic thriller Psycho! under the stars. This is a bring-a-snack-or-drink-to-share and bring-your-own-picnic-blanket affair. (Please note that you're not allowed to drink out of glass containers in Grant Park.) We'll meet on the south steps of the Chicago Cultural Center at 5:45pm then walk over to Grant Park together at promptly 6pm. Running late? No problem - you can find our spot on
this google map.

    Due to really bad traffic, it took far longer to take the #36 down to the Loop than I was expecting, and I got to the south entrance of the Cultural Center 5 minutes late, at 5:50 ... and nobody was there. So, I dragged my cart with the big cooler (with a large container of pasta, and beverages) and chairs on over to Butler Field, trying to find the group. There WAS a group where the map indicated the MeetUp would be, but it wasn't NetSquared. My daughter and I then started to randomly ask folks that looked like they were setting up for a big group if they were the NetSquared MeetUp, but after asking dozen or more "likely looking" folks, we still couldn't find the group. Unfortunately, we hadn't brought eating utensils (having heard that those would be provided), so we just gave up and went back home. Did ANYBODY show up? We really tried quite hard to find the MeetUp (from 6-6:30) but could find no trace! It was a VERY frustrating evening.
