We Need Your Input!

We're just starting to think about what kind of "other" events we're going to be setting up over the course of the tweetup weekend and we'd love your input!

  • Have you done something fun in Chicago and would love to do it again?
  • Always wanted to see/do something?

No suggestion is too unusual! We've got Friday afternoon, Friday evening and Saturday afternoon to fill. As for outdoors activities, average high temp in Chicago for April is 60 degrees and average low is 42. Read more »

Tweetup Tips

Here are some things to keep in mind when attending tweetups. We love hearing great ideas, so share your own tips in the comments.

*Be nervous. Show up anyway.
Look, most of us met because we spend an inordinate time communicating online, whether telling dick jokes, instant messaging, or posting gratuitous self portraits. We all have some social issues and anxieties ranging from mild to moderate or more. This is okay, and it's certainly no reason to miss out on any tweetup fun. We know "be yourself" is a terrible cliche that your mom threw at you on the first day of middle school. But it was terrible because we were young and didn't know ourselves enough to be ourselves. Now that we're all grown up, "be yourself" is the way to form lasting friendships--or at the very least, to survive an evening with previously imaginary friends.

*Keep up with happenings via Twitter

Follow @chshtweetup on Twitter for last-minute announcements (including canceled, relocated, or spontaneously generated events), and ask questions and one of the CHSH organizers will get back to you as soon as we can. Read more »

If you were happy with the service you received at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza, Steve's Deli, Mullen's (Wrigley), The Wishbone (on Washington), or anywhere else, please go to sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor, etc. and write a favorable review about them.

Thanks for making this yet another super-fun time. You people are amazing.
