There's actually a few of us in the Chicago area. We do meet-ups periodically, too. I'll let you know when the next one is coming up if you're interested.
To be honest, I don't really know any of the posters around here yet, and I'm not sure I'd be ready for a meetup, but I appreciate your thoughtfulness in including me. If you get the chance, let me know when the next one is (or where to look for announcements). Maybe I'll be a regular poster around here by then.
