Hey everyone. We are having an incredible time! Tonight, we all got together for dinner & drinks and lots of laughs. We have pictures that we have been trying to send but they keep bouncing back. We're trying to get them to you.

This has been a very strange experience for us. Even though its the first time we have all actually met, we already feel like old friends. Now I'm getting all sentimental. Could be the booze talking.

We get up tomorrow and go on our cruise on Lake Michigan. More pics will come as soon as we can get them to you.

Thanks Lodi for the update! Glad you are all having such a good time. I went to Chicago on a passenger train when I was 17, high school class trip. It was a new experience for a country girl. Can't wait to see your pictures. Sorry I couldn't be there.

Yeah! Chicago is a fun town (I think). I spent three days there on my way home from Fort Riley Kansas when I got out of the Army. Unfortunately I don't remember a whole lot of it because of all the friendly bartenders in the downtown area.

I have to admit that I didn't know what to expect when meeting my Sploofus friends for the first time in person. I was a little bit nervous.

But, we've talked so much in the Shouts and otherwise that it really has been like meeting up with old friends. We are having so much fun! It's a riot to see what people really look like and sound like.

I have to encourage other Sploofusers in far flung corners of the world to meet up as well! More later after today's shinnanigans!

Great website - looks like so much fun! But why are you drinking Mexican beer in Chicago???

And where is the best place to get traditional Chicago style pizza? I'll be there in October and my son will NEED pizza!

Yep, what GroupW said,..would love to be there. But, next week we ditch the kids for two days on our little get-away, and it ain't gonna be cheap.

Maybe next time. You all look like you're having an absolute blast!

For pizza, try

John's Pizzeria Ristorante and Lounge
(773) 384-1755

It's a family-owned restaurant that's been there since at least the 1950s.

Reviews at

I lived less than a block away from 1960-1980 and grew up on the stuff. Whenever I visit family in the Chicago area, we make a pigrimage there. BTW, while you're there, make sure to try an Italian beef sandwich as well.
