Chicago Astronomer Joe and the Yelp Summerfest Bash 2009
I frequent a on-line business review group called "Yelp". Those with experiences doing business with merchants post their reviews and also have built up a nice little social network community.
I, being the resident astronomer, have enjoyed my inclusion in the Yelp family and built up many real life friends since I started Yelping in 2006. I often post upcoming and current astronomical events and news there and many write back appreciating the info.
Often, the yelp crew hold get togethers, bashes or simple intimate events throughout the year. On July 31st, Yelp held it's first "Summerfest"...and it was a good one - with hundreds in attendance.
Your favorite astronomer met old friends, made new ones..and always documents the event with plenty pics.
No booze this event for me, just didn't feel like imbibing, but plenty of food and laughs....and affections.
Held at the Irish American Hall on Chicago's Northside, hundreds of Yelpers made their way to celebrate the summer, enjoy the music, partake in great food and drinks....and to meet in person people we enjoy conversing with via the Internet.
