Forwarded from Don Ostrowski:
I have already been receiving requests concerning information about the Early Slavic Studies Association dinner at ASEEES this year in Chicago. Here is that information:
The ESSA dinner will be at the Indian Garden Restaurant, 247 E. Ontario St., Chicago. It's about a 5-minute walk from the hotel where the ASEEES conference is being held.
I scheduled the dinner for Friday, November 10th, at 7:45 pm (for reasons that I will explain at our business meeting). The cost of the dinner is $40 + tax + tip. Drinks not included.
If you plan on attending the dinner, do send me <firstname.lastname@example.org> an indication of your intent to do so. It doesn't commit you one way or the other, and it certainly doesn't mean that if you don't indicate your intent, you can't decide at the last minute to attend. It is just so that I can give the restaurant management ahead of time a rough number of how many diners to plan for. I have already told them to plan for around 40 of us, but if it will be significantly more or significantly less at the time, then the restaurant management would like a heads up.
The ESSA business meeting will be held on Friday, November 10, at 10:00 am.
