Anyone near Chicago, this could be a nice venue to meet other local tea heads and some vendors. Looks like it is still being organized.

Sounds interesting. I would love to see Chicago. It would have been nicer if they didn't pick winter time...in Chicago.

Funny enough Nov 1 I have flights Tokyo -> O'Hare -> New York State. It seems like a gloriously bad idea to abandon that last flight but it's tempting... The timing seems like a sign really.

Far from being bitter cold, early November is rather nice in Chicago and perfect weather for tea.

Wow! How did I just hear about this?!
Im going.
@teaformeplease I will absolutely be at your seminar. There is another seminar that starts right when yours ends. I may have to leave a few minutes early :/
I gotta say, I find it a little strange that there arent more Puehr events.
I am so excited! Things like this dont happen in the midwest :)

Excellent @Brent D! I think puerh is more intimidating so there's a lot less people who would feel comfortable leading a workshop on it. Maybe an idea for next year if this goes well :lol:
