[Chicago] Ruby/Python meeting, with DHH

So, John Long contacted me again, and wants to set something up with us, 
the Ruby Meetup, David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH, the Rails guy), and 
maybe a panel discussion, a little Rails/Django thing, etc.

The next time that seems like it could work out with David in town is 
October 10 & 11.  I thought an evening program would be good; weekdays 
after work seems to be a good time to get people.  I think we could 
potentially get quite a few people, since the subjects are all hyped up 
at the moment.  I'm especially interested in getting non Python/Ruby 
people to the event.

I offered ChiPy up as being able to find a good venue.  So... what do 
you guys think?  I thought Loyola or DePaul would have good possible 
venues -- they have good spaces (especially in the evening), and a 
downtown location would be good too.  I think Michael Tobis said he'd 
communicated with George Thiruvathukal about Loyola during the PyCon 
proposal.  Are there DePaul contacts we should be checking with?  Also, 
U. Chicago is another possibility, though their campus is less 
convenient.  I also see people with IIT and Northwestern addresses on 
the list, and if I remember correctly another Loyola professor has 
attended some recent meetings.
