    Meathead1234 has set up a few of these in London and I think it's a pretty cool way to get out and actually talk to people who know what you know lol.

    Ever tried explaining IM or SEO to someone on the street? They think you're crazy haha.

    Meatheads December Meetup - BHW London Meetup - Christmas Special



    How many people would want to hang out for a night downtown or in the burbs and just shoot the shit? lol.


    This is just an idea for now because I'm not sure how many people would be willing to do this since it could be a little more difficult considering the cold weather.




    So.... Who would be interested in hanging out for a night with a bunch of Internet Marketers as we paint the town black and gold? :D

    I'm in Chicago for a few days early December. I could potentially do a lunch on the 4th (I'm flying back in the evening).

    The 4th is a Tuesday. I don't mind doing something during the week.

    What about Monday the 3rd at night? Or are you busy?

    I'm flying in on the 2nd, have a meeting in the evening and then on the 3rd I have a meeting all day and then have another one all evening. So I only really have one spare lunch - subject to meetings!

    We can get a group together for lunch and then give you a send off while the rest of us go out on the town lol :D

    It sucks that you won't be able to come out later if we set up the get together.

    I'm out in Woodridge but getting to the city isn't hard if we do end up getting together.

    Alright sweet!

    I guess we can do a lunch with meathead and then set up another meeting so that there's a little more advanced notice for members.


    Sound good Meathead?

    Why don't you host it in a more populated state, where most of us will be able to attend? I mean, WF just did it in Florida, so why not try New York or California?

    lol, because Chicago is a big city?

    Nothing is set in stone, I just wanted to see how many people would be willing to come out. And why would Chicago be a bad place to have it? It's easy to fly in and people could be tourists for a day lol.

    No one is pitching this as an official meetup. Schedule one in one of those places if you want one there.

    I'd be interested in meeting up or swapping numbers with locals. Unfortunately I work from 3-11 during the week until I get this whole IM life figured out but it'd be nice to have a network to bounce things off of locally. Try explaining things like this to your girlfriend and meh. I'm in Joliet
