Hey Elizabeth, I can meet at Emerald City. In fact I'm already there because I live right down the street. Just responded to your text.
Elizabeth did you make it to the Iguana Cafe?
Hi Bill, unfortunately I don't have a smartphone so I wasn't able to follow this message board after I headed out, so when I got the text I went to Emerald City. Sorry about the confusion, but we'll be playing at Starbucks3845 N BroadwayChicago, IL 60613
on Mondays at 7 in the future. It's quite close to a Red Line stop.
I will try to make it next time

No one showed up. :(
I just went to Iguana Cafe and no one was there.
Hey Bill, we're currently at Emerald City because only one of us had a chessboard and they lived on the north side. We're going to be meeting up more often though so we'll do our best to make it clear where we are next time. I only saw 3 rsvps so I didn't think it was an issue this time.
Ah OK. It is a bit of a hike for me at this point. I probably should have read the comments before I just showed up here. The waiter at Iguana said that no one had shown up for chess in months.
Yeah I think it has been a dead meetup in the past. But we're trying to get something going again.
Well damn, I didn't realize this meetup was dead. I am willing to meet up and play tonight though. Text me at[masked]
Ok I'm coming then, still I only have the pieces, I lost my board somewhere.
see my other comment. Can you meet up farther north?
Cool, I'll be going too. So are we meeting at the Emerald City coffee shop or the iguana cafe?
Emerald city would be great
I didn't get this message til now, sorry. Is it too late?
I have a nice board and pieces but I would have to pick them up at my apt near the Sheridan red line stop. Could meet at Emerald City coffee shop.
I'm planning on it.
Hi, is any one coming today ?
Hi! This is my first time meeting with this group; it sounds fun. I'll bring my board and pieces, but just fyi it's very small and mismatched so you might want to bring your own :) I'll double check on Monday about an hour before 7pm if anyone's RSVP'd, and if nobody is going except me I'll stay home.

As it appears from previous meetups, this meetup is dead, no one comes any more, still I can attend if any one is coming, I have a small chess board but it has all the pieces.
