Hi New Chowhounds,
The best informal way of getting updates on get togethers is through the LTH (Little Three Happiness) List Serve courtesy of Chitown Chow member G Wiv.
Try it for a while, if it is not your flavor then unsubscribe!
Really, welcome to the community. It has been fun trying to keep up with all the new postings. As much as you want to inquire with us ... please remember we want to learn from your experience as well.
Often your answers to your questions can be found by doing a search. All you do is go to the homepage where you will find two search engines: one google and the other provided by Chowhounds. Try both in your keyword searches. If the information is too broad, like info from the International board, then add CHICAGO to your keyword search. It does cut down the excess information to weed through.
We love it especially when someone has done their research and asked a question based on this information. Ok, we will also answer questions which are a shot in the dark. Just remember pizza, hot dogs, italien beef are well represented in the archives.
We look forward to sharing chow and tips with you.
