    Chicago area Doxa meet? Who would be interested?

    Several years ago when Doc Pete lived relatively close by, we had dinner together at Bob Chinn's Crabhouse ( Bob Chinn's Crab House ).

    Are any Doxaholics in the area (Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin or anywhere else) who would be interested in meeting at Bob Chinn's for a Saturday lunch? The restaurant has amazing seafood (their chargrilled grouper is my favorite, their garlic rolls are incredible, and their white clam chowder is to die for) and fantastic steaks, pizza, and other delicious items. On a Saturday at lunchtime, it's not crowded at all. They have large tables in glassed off side rooms (with a great view of the Des Plaines river) that we could easily reserve for a group up to any size.

    Of course, we'd all bring our Doxas and related items for show and tell.

    While I'm bringing this up early, I was thinking about doing it toward the end of the year and after the 50th Anniversary SUB 300 watches start shipping in November. I ordered a Pro, but it would neat to have lunch with those who might have a Sharkhunter or a Searambler.

    Again, this is only April and I'm thinking about early December. But eight months lead time gives us an idea of how many people may be interested. It also lets people set that weekend aside. So maybe Saturday December 3, 2016?

    Bob Chinn's in on Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling, Illinois. There is a northbound and southbound exit/entrance off Tollway 94 at Lake-Cook Road that leads directly to Milwaukee Avenue. Pretty easy to get to.

    I think that’s a great idea, and as I live in the suburbs, count me in! We may only have 2-3 people there, but we’ll have a great time! I’ve always had a great time at ‘risti GTSs, and I know this would be the same! Message me if you need any help.

    And good call on having it at a seafood place! I hate seafood, but VERY appropriate for a dive watch!

    I'd be interested. I live in Minnesota but I'm in the Chicago area very frequently!

    Okay, several months have passed. We're getting closer to the November shipping of the 50th Anniversary SUB 300 watches. I'm still thinking that early December on a Saturday at lunch time would be a great time to meet at Bob Chinn's Crabhouse.

    Any others interested? Even if it's just four of us, it would be a great time.

    Steve, I'd love to attend, but sadly I'm down in Louisiana.

    I think we're getting closer! The 50th Anniverary watches are supposed to be shipped out in November.

    How about Saturday, December 17th? Bob Chinn's Crabhouse ( Bob Chinn's Crab House ) opens at 11am. I can make it that day.

    Who's in?
