its important i spend time with my peers. tell me when and where,i'll be there! can be on site at mccormick place during show

Glad you started this discussion. Actually, we (FohBoh) are planning to attend the NRA show and are looking to host a swinging party to meet FohBoh members and sign up new ones. We probably will not be hosting a booth this year. Love to meet you. If you have any ideas on venues, etc., let us know. We will be sending out a broadcast message soon about this. See you soon!
I look forward to meeting up - I will be there with the group I bring to NRA each year.
To make it work best as a networking event, I suggest some structure ie a welcome/hosting person, name tags (gasp - yes) and a venue where people can hear each other. Breakfast is another option - more likely to meet and talk. Top floor bar of the Hancock building is spectacular, accessible and comfortable.
The NRA show ia alwasy a good time, but be sure to book your dining reservations early as places fill up. The train to the Joliet Pen is fun and usually sponsired by Patrick Henry. I have a small lounge downtown right off Michigan Ave called the Reagle Beagle. You are more than welcome to use it as a meeting place as it is pretty much in the center of the city. If I can be of any hlep to any of you, tag my email at Bill@ReagleBeagleChicago.com.
your hot spot has garnered great press since its opening,bill. congratulations and keep up the good work!
everytime i walk by, your place is busy! i spend my weekend eveningswith friends who own a condo in the
535 north michigan avenue building ( your neighbors ) we keep promising ourselves to drop in sometime.
thank you for your generous offer for us to consider your joint as a gathering spot. i think it'd be ideal. its so
close to several hotels NRA folks may be booked into ( inter continental, hyatt regency, marriott etc ) AND it
has the energy and vibrancy the hospitality industry generates.
You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
Privacy researcher Christopher Soghoian sees the landscape of government surveillance shifting beneath our feet, as an industry grows to support monitoring programs.
