As mentioned in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=26687
it sounds like there are a few people around the Chicago area. Eitan and I have gotten together in the past (it's been too long). It would be nice to do so again.
I would suggest we could meet at my place, but for the next couple of months, I am remodeling so the house is a mess. Once that is complete though, we could certainly meet there.
If there are only a few people, we could even meet at a Barnes and Noble or something like that - that's what Eitan and I did and it seemed to work just fine.
I don't really have a time in mind or anything, but if you are interested, post here with your ideas.
