    Agreed, great choice! I love Analogue so much and the fried chicken dinner is one of my favorite meals.

    Just signed up. Looking forward to celebrating with "the gang" -- and to discovering Analogue. Sounds wonderful.

    Oh -- and what's the parking situation? I see that there is a CYA station not too far away, but the closest stop on my end is a 25-minute drive, so not necessarily an easy option, if there is a parking lot or valet.

    That stretch of Milwaukee shouldn't be a parking problem on a Thursday night. You might have to leave to re-up the meter, but I don't think you'd have trouble finding a spot near the restaurant.

    yes a meter should be no problem, and if you get there early, you can look for free parking on logan blvd, just around the corner....

    Not quite like winning the lottery . . . but this will be the first time I've been able to make the holiday party (thanks to it being on a Thursday), and then Analogue and its fried chicken on top of that? Yes!

    Saint Pizza and I will be there.

    Too bad about the BYOB. I've been drinking less beer recently in an attempt to lose some weight so I have several kegs of homebrew I'd like to have brought and shared.
    Ronnie said I should probably tell you guys about my website so

    This sounds like it's going to be another magnificent holiday event... thanks for all your work to make it happen!

    FOOD DRIVE INFO
    Thank you so much for again sponsoring a food drive for the hungry folks of Chicago. I'm working with A Just Harvest/Good News Church food pantry, a distributor for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. All donations that are nonperishable and unopened are warmly welcomed, but there are a few items that would be especially appreciated:

    • Peanut butter
    • Pasta
    • Macaroni and cheese
    • Rice
    • Other dried grains
    • Canned vegetables
    • Canned fruits
    • Canned chicken/fish/meat
    • Canned soup or soup mix
    • Beans

    When in doubt, go for proteins. Tuna, chili, stew, peanut butter... the most dense, filling, nutritious things will give you (and our clients) the most bang for your buck. Speaking of bucks... if you'd rather donate via a check instead of going shopping, your donation will be applied to the most urgent needs (make checks out to Greater Chicago Food Depository; your donation is tax-deductible).

    Thank you all for your kindness and generosity. I'm always so touched by the way we share our good fortune with others during this time of celebration and wonder. It's a genuine honor to do this each year. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

    Did you check with this person?

    Never mind, I heard she now has a ticket from another source.
