Rock Bottom Brewery, at Grand and State, on the roof unless the weather is bad. We're sharing this meetup with the Hacker News meetup; if you get lost at Rock Bottom, just ask someone where the Hacker News meetup is.


ChiSec is Wednesday, June 17th at 7PM. We stay until people get tired of hanging out. That seems to be about 3 hours.
