Classic Arcade Games, Awesome Beer, and Great LGBT Tech People

  • September 24, 2013 · 6:30 PM

The Chicago LGBT Technology Group is kicking off its first meeting at Replay, a new bar in Boystown that has free classic arcade games, the best beer list I've ever seen in a gay bar, and a great outdoor patio.

    Thanks everyone for coming out Tuesday! We had around 70 people attend. Not too shabby for a first event. I'm going to get next month set up in the next week or so. If you have any advice on venues let me know. Also please let me know what days of the week work best via the poll I just posted. See you all next month!

      You should do Twisted Vine on Halsted. I'd be happy to introduce you to the owner if interested.

    That was a lot of fun, and some good networking to boot. Thanks, Luke, for putting this together! Looking forward to the next event.

    Luke did a great job of organizing this evening. Saw some old friends, met some new ones. Smart, nice people and great pumpkin ale to boot!

    I had a really fun evening and met a lot of smart folks. Some of them were even nice people! Haha =). Seriously though, this is a great group. Looking forward to the next one!

    Lots of interesting conversations! All technical people, but yet so diverse. No two people I talked with did the same thing.

    I won't be able to arrive until 7:15. As you make your travel plans, folks, be aware that there's a Cubs game at 7.

      Thanks for the heads up on the game, Steven. Here I thought basketball season was over. ;-P

    Looking forward to coming, especially for the 30-second 'announcement' portion!

    Hi everyone. I can't wait to meet all of you tonight. Replay has a great back patio area and this evening is looking like perfect fall weather for our first Meetup. Combine that with cheap drinks and free games and it's a no-brainer. Let's enjoy the weather while we can while we can! Hope to see you there. While this is meant to be a fun, freeform event, I want to take a few minutes tonight for announcements. Maybe you are looking for a job, looking to hire, want to pitch your startup, or want to share an accomplishment. All I ask is that you limit your pitch/announcement to 30 seconds. We will do this around 7:30 so be prepared! :-)

    Very sorry to report that I have to bail at the last minute for a family situation. Have fun, all. I will catch you next time for sure.

      Kathy, No problem. See you next month.

    Sorry, Luke! I'm coming down with something and won't be able to make it tonight. We'll have to have that beer some other time!

    September 24, 2013

    • Luke H.

      No worries. Next time!

    Hi everyone. I can't wait for the Meetup next week. We just had our 100th person sign up to the group and there are 66 RSVP's. So cool!

    Replay just let me know they are extending a special deal for members of the Meetup next Tuesday: $3 Bud Light Drafts, $4 Goose Drafts, and $5 house brand cocktails. And of course free Frogger games all night :-)

    See you all next week and bring some friends!
