Chicago-SF - Fantasy, Speculative, and Science Fiction Pages

Welcome to the Chicago Speculative Fiction Community!
Fans of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Speculative Fiction, come and socialize with your fellow fen! Join us each month for dinner, socializing and random lively discussions.

We're a social group that exists to have fun while discussing our SF interests---comics, gaming, books, movies, tv shows. Whatever your taste you'll probably find someone who shares at least one of your interests. We are currently averaging 40-50 attendees each month. Even with our wonderful wait-staff it can take a while to get the orders out for a group this large, so you might want to order your dinner or appetizer along with your drinks as soon as you arrive.

We love to gather and have created our own website and community at to facilitate that, we have a presence here to let those who haven't heard of us or are new in town join the fun.

Dave and Buster's has been great about giving us a room of our own, all we have to do is order something and pay for it. We get one bill for the whole group, so please note what food you order and how much it costs. Drinks are $2.50 each, gratuity is minimum 18% (we usually give more), and tax is 10.25%, more on alcohol. So if you tack on 30% to your bill you'll definitely cover it all. Additional donations to cover our expenses are always welcome - just add them to your bill payment, and we'll collect a small amount from the overage. (We keep a donations fund which is used to cover under-paid bills and group fees). Rich Riley is our designated money handler, so whenever you're ready to leave, just seek him out.

These are our rules: Have fun, pay for what you order, maintain a friendly atmosphere and try to meet somebody new.
