Chicago area March 21

I'll be back in town and should be available for any of these evenings if anyone feels like doing an offline. Won't suggest theme or location until there is sufficient interest.

xhoser, it looks like Wed. the 21st is the best day so far. Hopefully some more will chime in and join us. It's your thread, but as usual I can be the reservations secretary! Wink

I'll again throw out the suggestion of Suzette's Creperie in Wheaton as a venue. $10 corkage, nice stems, great food. Pricier than Wildfire, but it's also a lot smaller and conversation-friendly. I'm good wherever, though.
Bill - I agree that we should set the date as Wednesday March 21, 2012. I like the idea of trying a new venue so I am open to try Suzette's if others are game. I would prefer to defer to you for reservations because you are excellent at it! I am just the enabler! Big Grin
I made a reservation at Suzette's for 7:30 on the 21st to get a spot nailed down. If there are objections to the venue we can deal with it. I made it for 8 people; I may be a +1. You guys have my e-mail if we want to discuss off the forum. xhoser, any wine theme or just bring something that doesn't suck?
Berno and otis, hope to see you both again soon.

I believe the current head count is 7:

xhoser
jcubed
aphilla (hopeful)
thelostverse +1
billhike (probable +1)

Not sure if anyone cares to post what they are bringing, but we will surely have at least one white. Maybe two whites, maybe a white and a Champagne. After all, it's summer in March here in Chicago!
We are currently sitting at 6 people.

I'm thinking of letting the restaurant know as a courtesy since I made the reservation for 8. I'll be able to check here early morning before work, but then not again until I'm at home around 5:30 or so. If no one else chimes in overnight, I'll give them a call.
Had another great time last night. Suzette's was an excellent choice - the food and service were impeccable. Nice stems for each type of wine and an intimate setting. We will go back there again.

All of the wines were excellent and I look forward to seeing everyone at the next one.

+1, great evening. Having the cheese plate as dessert after having the gruyere fondue appetizer may not have been the best idea! I ate much healthier today...
