    Well, I haven't given much thought to an agenda. Basically, we get together, talk about what we're doing, give feedback, and talk about what we plan to be able to show off for the next meeting. Even people who don't have anything to demonstrate can provide valuable feedback. If someone has an issue they want to bring up, he/she can do that, too.

    Please do! Always good to have more local indies show up.

    Well, we'll probably be by one of the bars clustered at a table or two. Last time it was at D&B I believe we were upstairs (it's probably the quieter of the two main bar areas). Just look for guys with laptops -- we shouldn't be hard to pick out.

    Parking?

    How is the parking space like in this area?
    Or if I instead take the blue line then which stop is the closest?

    You know, I am not sure about parking. It's downtown-ish Chicago, and so driving is obviously frowned upon and discouraged, but I think there might be a parking garage nearby. I'm not sure how much it is, though.

    That said, I believe the Red Line is right there. I'm not sure how far away the blue line is, but if you take the Blue, transfer to Red, and get off at Clark and Division, it should be a short walk south.

    The blue line is not close, I take it from work. Usually I get off at the Division Blue line stop and take the Division bus to the Red line stop. Its a little faster for me.

    The parking garage is right across the street, and it's $6 if you validate at Dave & Busters while you're there. Not so bad, really.
