Where are you from (or have lived) in the Midwest?

Born and raised in Chicago, in the city.

Why did you move to Boston and how long have you been here?

Moved here in 1995 to attend B.U.'s graduate school of management and have been here ever since, working in various jobs.

What do you miss most about the Midwest?

When I left, the drivers were very polite. I have heard, though, that they are more like Boston drivers now.

Finish this sentence: You know you’re from the Midwest if...

You put extra syllables in certain words -- "pee-ants" instead of "pants" for example.

What kind of activities would you like to do with this meetup group? Where’s the most convenient location for you?

Any activities other than watching football; any place in Brighton, Cambridge, or Brookline is most convenient, though downtown Boston is good, too.

Introduction

Go CUBS!!! They have the most beautiful ballpark and the best fans in the U.S.!!! I left Chicago many years ago, but still carry much fondness in my heart for all things Chicagoan!! I'd love to see a game with other former Midwesterners.
