Topic Wiki

Putting together a DO for those that frequent the LMS thread has been in the back of my head for a while but Yochiek93 was the first to actually suggest it. We all know that the chances of this actually happening are slim but a man can dream right? [No, only if we let you sleep. Boom.]

JTZ suggested Chicago under the guise of it being a "big hub" but we all know it was just so that he wouldn't have to travel. It happens to be that Chicago is as good a place as any and it's only 15,000 BA roundtrip from NYC, CLE, and DCA.

So, who's in for a DO?

Update 3/19:

Suggested DO- Cavs/Bulls game in ORD on 3/30, (Milts? Shallots?)

Interested:
1. mmgfarb
2. as2

Maybe:
1. rollingstone

Interested but unavailable
1. Yammer
2. SrulyS
3. grodnoking
4. cholent

Interesting:
1.Henche?

So you can have a choice of the place I call home (pictured next to my name) or the place I call my house (or dormitory for the kids) which is close to home. (Cholent available at both places, though I can't vouch for the one that DW doesn't make).
There was a pop up Chulent stand outside your home for a few months but I haven't seen them since it got cold.

ETA: I'm heading over to your home now to look for a Minyan. Let's see how long it'll take.

ETA2: Can I call it my home too?

How did this thread attract so many people and get so derailed?

IME (when I was serving my time) up to 2:45am never took me more than 10 minutes to put together a minyan for maariv (though at times I did need to work hard for it).

It is definitely your home too. After all it is called בית חיינו in the plural.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You need to be proactive. A loud shout מעריב can sometimes serve to remind some people that they didn't daven yet.

Also remember my saying: צעהן מעריב׳ס איז ניט ווערט אזוי ווי איין והוא רחום. Once you say those words, additional participants always show up. As long as you're just saying מעריב, you are not taken seriously, because no one knows when it will actually happen. Once you start, people see you are serious and join.

Seems like we need to introduce more people at 770 to the LMS thread.

I bow before the importance of this decision. What about shallots?
You might have a bit of a problem with that has two real sheriffs might show up.  :)
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Not a problem, any and all sheriffs are welcome.
