[Chicago] Shall ChiPy have a "project night"?

I'm  down... But two questions...

1) Whats your definition of "night"? It's often hard for me remake nights
with my crazy schedule, Chipy meetings are hard enough (but they are so
awesome so I go out of my way), but I'd be down for organizing
weekday events, like Friday afternoons.

2) What if I don't like curry in a hurry? ;)
