meet and greet plans? AMG 2013.
« on: July 02, 2013, 04:07:54 PM »
Hi,
I noticed Dennis mentioned back in January in the Hotel proposal thread that the rooftop terrace would be available and he would get back to us with a menu and prices.
I couldn't find much about it on the hotel website other than a brief mention.
(nothing about a restaurant or bar)
Thought it might be worth getting some plans discussed. :)

This is a picture of the rooftop terrace.  They don't actually accept reservations for the use of this and it's not private.  The sales/catering department isn't open today but I can try to find some additional details.

One thing that needs to be considered with the rooftop terrace is rain.
I'm not seeing any awnings in that picture.

Here's an interesting option?  Right down the street and on the bus line.

Ann Sathers , the restaurant I have mentioned before has facility's and does catering for events like this all the time . Its also located about  20 steps away from the Belmont L stop in Lake View . It would be an added bonus for those who wish to go to the clubs or sports bars around Wrigley Field after dinner ... location location location .

Tom the owner is gay and very active in LGBT issues as well a long history of serving the HIV positive community . Just thought I would mention it .

That looks good. Thanks Greg! :)

Here is another restaurant nearby.

Another good option. It's a BYOB. (maybe there is a nearby bar for cocktails before dinner)
I have the feeling some of us will be making our way to Boystown during our visit.  :D
Thanks Jeff! :)

Having never been to an AMG before, I don't know what kind of venue/menu is most conducive for a group of our size.
Anybody else have any ideas, recommendations, comments? :)

I'm open to any place.  I can usually find something on the menu that suits me.  Just getting concerned that we're a mere few weeks out.

By the look of things Kenny and I might be the only AMG newbies this year. Since everyone else has already "met and gret" maybe this years "meet and greet" isn't needed?
I dunno. :-\

dont be  so  sure  Mitch  seems  there  are  always  some  "locals"  that  just  show up..either  "lurkers"  from the  site or folks who  got  wind of the meeting... or  heard about it  from a regular member
  I have told a few  friends  about it ..   wouldnt  be a surprise if one of them  showed up

    We always need a Meet and greet  :)

     There are few people I have yet to meet .   

      It makes for a fun  dinner  and a way to really know whom is whom .

LOL! Ok. The meet and greet will happen! :) Where and when will need more input from everyone attending... soon. Seems there is no Captain of this ship. I'll go with the flow. Just gotta consider that a relatively large group of us need to have some sort of plan at least a week or two in advance if we expect to be seated in a restaurant on a Friday night at a venue of our choice.
I'm just trying to be a cheerleader here. ;D

ps- best of luck with your diet. my expectations are set high now. lol. :)

I'm totally OK with anything!  Perhaps it's time to simply throw out a couple of places and see what everyone thinks?

We should all have appetites -- my body doesn't look this way all on it's own. No -- it takes lots of hard work to maintain this belly!!

As for M&G location -- anything already mentioned works for me.  The people are more important than the location, IMO.  It is too bad we can't reserve the rooftop for a spell.......  but I'll go anywhere.  I'd say, just call some place and see what they can accommodate and the cost -- that will likely be the data that drives the decision.

I'm in it for the people too. Nothing says we can't get together on the rooftop while we are there at some point. :)
I'm fine with either of the 2 restaurants. The prices are posted on the links. One of the 2 specifically describes private party rooms available. (minimum of 15 people) Not even sure how many of us are coming.
Having never been to an AMG M&G, I'm not sure how you all have dealt with the tab unless you always had a prefixed deal. How should it be handled otherwise? Separate checks are most likely out of the question. Drink prices can add up quick on a tab and I would hate to see a nondrinker get slapped.
Almost all of those going this year have been before. Ideas?
Maybe just figure it all out at the table when the bill arrives? I dunno.
Hard to go much further at this point without more input.

How it is has worked in the past.....
We arrange for some "heavy hor d'oeuvres" for the group.  Collect a per person cost. The bar has been a cash bar -- no need to have non-drinkers pay for drinks they won't have.  Of course, we've always shared some possibilities on what to choose to food and costs.  If memory serves, we've been in the $30-$50/pp range in the past.  Money has been collected once folks arrive at the AMG hotel -- to ensure the person paying has all the cash when needed.

I am happy to deal with the money and paying the venue, but work is so crazy right now, I can't sign up for the site selection and/or reservations & ordering portion.

Thanks Mike.

Spoke to Wolfie and he has got further possibilities to post soon.

I know I started this thread but never felt comfortable about taking the lead to an event that I have never attended. Also thought (naively) that this was a more organized event. Again, I'm new at this. I just wanted to see some excitement and participation like I read about in past years.
To be honest it has been a bit discouraging. I'm sure we will have a great time but if the people going don't show much enthusiasm now it doesn't help encourage others to join in the festivities.
Just telling it like I see it from a newbie perspective. :)
Maybe it's just me.
Sorry for the rant.

Not to worry Mitchie.....  there really is very little organization -- even the best laid plans end up falling to the "herding cats" phenom.  However, AMG is wonderful and I'm sure you will love it. 
Looking forward to meeting you in person...... 

Oh -- never worry that being new means you can't/shouldn't help plan....  newness could actually be a help!

Hugs,
Mike

Not to worry Mitchie.....  there really is very little organization -- even the best laid plans end up falling to the "herding cats" phenom.  However, AMG is wonderful and I'm sure you will love it. 
Looking forward to meeting you in person...... 

Oh -- never worry that being new means you can't/shouldn't help plan....  newness could actually be a help!

Hugs,

Looking forward to meeting you too! :)
"Herding cats" sounds like a likely outcome. LOL!

I guess I thought I was helping to plan. Just not hearing much. After much research, the first two options mentioned by Wolfie and I seem the best. Both are highly rated, are relatively close by and have a decent menu.
Check out the links below. Menu, space, prices. There are many reviews and comments to read about and pics of both places on http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g35805-Chicago_Illinois.html

Input soon from everybody?   
And what night would everyone prefer? Friday or Saturday? Time? 6pm, 7pm?

Greg,
Thanks for the added ideas. I tried to research the restaurants you provided. Didn't find much info on some. Others weren't practical for the M&G. Viand and Grand Lux Café were possibilities but still think our original suggestions better fit our needs. (never been to o Popeye's before ;D.)

Even if the meet and greet isn't at one of those locations, it's nice to have a nice map of those spots, I'll try to make copies for everyone.  I'll also include all the local bars, state stores and such. ;D

Perhaps the M & G is just going be more informal since fewer people are going?  That's fine also if we just meet for our usual afternoon refreshments and head to a local eatery. ;)

Looking forward to your "map"! LOL.

Informal idea is fine with me and always has been. I guess I thought some might have had more expectations and didn't want anyone to be disappointed. Maybe nobody will be. It really is all about the meeting and greeting.  ;)
Gotta eat but that part could be tucked in if nobody seems to mind.
Carl? Sound ok to you? (be honest now) :)

As long as I can order some unmolested dead animal, I am fine.

The meet and greet should be about fun as well as food, and we have had them at various types of places, from bars to somewhat fancy restaurants.

I will be happy with whatever we decide.

As for the day, Friday might be nice.

HUGS,

Mark
