With average ChiPy attendence being well over 20 people lately I'm 
pretty sure someone can always help you carry stuff, regardless of what 
venue we're in.  My Megabus usually gets in to Union Station around 
5:15, I could definitely help next Thursday.

Last time we hung at Massimo's pad I think we had pizza and half of the 
people brought in food from establishments within a 1.5 block radius.  
Granted we didn't drink any alcoholic beverages during the actual 
meeting ( maybe we should get the Institute of Design to host :p ), but 
it was pretty easy to go out afterwards ( and beforewards :p ). 

Variety is the spice of life...

( Kidding! (sort of) The meeting we had during PyCon out there was sweet).
