Chicago Meetup

Recommended Posts

Hot Doug's...Del Seoul, Chi Cafe (breakfast specials) to name a few...Pretty sure most of the best food has been mentioned in this thread before and for the most part can offer food for <$10

Anyone else going to Lollapalooza? Heading up there from Austin and would be cool to meet up. Digging all the recommendations on this thread -- taking notes now.

Yeah. I'm going on Saturday. I'd be down for a meetup. here's who I'm planning on seeing that day:

Disappears (starts 12:45 so who knows if I'll make it)

Maps & Atlases

Black Lips

DFA 1979

Lykke Li

MMJ/Eminem (prob going to see Eminem just to do it, though).

I'm sure I could be coaxed into seeing other stuff, though.

Aight. It's Pitchfork Weekend. Whoever's in town, let's meet up there (assuming you're going).

get at me w/ a msg and let's coordinate something. It's a possibility that I'm doing Friday alone. haha. With that lineup, who cares, though.

I generally did yesterday by myself. Probably the most fun I've had at P4k in the last 4 yrs. No one to wait around for, I see who I want, get as close as I want...it was great.

Why the hell didn't AC do an an encore? they had 15 mins

I used to really like Animal Collective, but must confess to having lost a little faith of late. I've seen them live many times over the past 7 or so years and have always been satisfied. However, caught a substantial portion of the live feed from this year's Pitchfork performance...not good. Just my opinion, though. I wish I had gone this year, if for no other reason than to get a Chicago meetup going.

Watching it on the feed doesn't count, you had to be there to accurately judge it :)

Good list

local natives @ 5:30 should be pretty nice

might go to atmosphere over lykkie li and get my rap on all night.

except she is smoking...

You guys have tickets to any aftershows?

ill be going to port the man, was thinking about grabbing tickets for pains of being pure at heart but their live youtube vids turned me off.

Going to the Black Lips show for Friday. Shit's gonna be wild. Last time I saw them it was an all ages show, but this is 21+ in a bar that holds prob 50. Get tix if you can. Face val is $18.

Were any of you guys riding your bike westbound on Belmont, just west of Francisco, at about 3pm Monday afternoon? I saw a sufu-looking character in a pair of nudies, baseball cap and tee peddling in the fucking awful Chicago heat.

I think he meant that people don't call it the north loop.

How far north are you?

Maybe it's River West

State and what? Michigan and State run parallel. A number of my friends who went to Columbia lived in that general area -- south/west loop.

Indeed. Ropa vieja sandwich for me. That or the bistec or cubano. A lot of people swear by the jibarito but I don't care for plantains enough for all that.
