What we're about

Chicago Meetup is Chicago's Meetup Group for creativity, style, life, and nightlife. With over 3,000 members, Chicago Meetup is the largest Arts & Culture Meetup Group in Chicago (http://www.meetup.com/find/#?offset=0&psize=64¤tpage=1&categories=1&keywords=&radius=5&userFreeform=Chicago%2C+Illinois%2C+USA&mcId=z2805447&mcName=Chicago%2C+IL&sort=member_count&_suid=136724423515007654047867352853) and is one of its largest overall (http://www.meetup.com/find/#?offset=0&psize=64¤tpage=1&allMeetups=true&categories=&keywords=&radius=5&userFreeform=Chicago%2C+Illinois%2C+USA&mcId=z2805447&mcName=Chicago%2C+IL&sort=member_count&_suid=136724472010305202601599568803). Nearly shut down in July 2009 when its original founder left, the group has flourished as Chicago's most eclectic Meetup Group and one of the city's most active and fastest-growing groups.

Because it operated for over three years as the Creative Social Club and remains dedicated to engaging Chicago's creative community, Chicago Meetup is creative, experimental, and unbounded at its core. Chicago Meetup has many Meetups and the diversity of those Meetups will range from quirky hipster storytelling Meetups in Lincoln Square to arts professional development programs in West Town to fashion shows and bourgie nightlife Meetups in River North. If you are an eclectic person, this is the Meetup Group for you.

Chicago Meetup is an informal community of individuals. As with all Meetup Groups, membership in Chicago Meetup is subject to the Meetup Terms of Service (http://www.meetup.com/terms/).

Grown Folks Stories

Green Line Performing Arts Center

Local storyteller Cara Brigandi and owner of The Silver Room, Eric Williams created a no-notes storytelling event for amateur and professional storytellers. The host of the show will be Whitney Capps, who does a great job filling in for Cara. Drop your name in the hat for a five-minute turn at the mic. Most stories are light and entertaining to downright hilarious, while others can be very sobering and heart-felt. They do ask for a $5 donation to help them continue being able to continue bringing the show to the public. Come on out with us to hear some great unscripted tales from the lives of everyday people or maybe get up to tell a story of your own. It's always a good time! Doors open at 6:30 pm. I hope to see you there!
