I like NIPPLE. But, hey - who doesn't?!
Speaking of a meeting we should pick someplace to meet instead of just talking about it. Here, pick!
Off the top of my head, any Rock Bottom location is fine, there is one in Warrenville. Of course, Flossmoor Station is a place you'll never have to twist my arm to visit! I'd also recommend Emmett's Ale House in Downers Grove. And don't forget Lunar Brewing in Villa Park!
When it comes to beer bars, Palmer's Place in LaGrange is great and a little known place called John's Buffet in Winfield is a great tavern with a nice draft selection.
I don't really care where - just do it!
