Chicago Force BBQ 2017

Friday, July 21st, 2017

For those around since the prequels, I used to host an annual BBQ at my house in Streamwood. Now, having moved yet again, I have the space and means to restart this tradition.

I’ll have the usual grilled eats, such as burgers and chicken. I’ll just ask for my guests to post on the Facebook invite, what kind of side or beverage you can bring to share. And, if you do remember the old barbecues….NO CHIPS!! – Mark

When: August 5th, 3 p.m.

Where: Carol Stream, IL

Check it out here.

Summer BBQ 2015

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

On Saturday July 11th, Chicago Force had their Annual BBQ in Skokie. It rained a bit, but that didn’t stop us. We grilled, ate yummy food, goofed around, and devoted a lot of time to watching trailers from San Diego Comic Con. Of course the behind-the-scenes Star Wars video was our favorite. It was a great time.

Where the Beautiful People© hang out

Sunday, August 1st, 2004

The Annual Chicago Force Summer BBQ was a great time to hang out, relax, bash politicians, and share in all things Geek. Just don’t walk into the wrong conversation if you want to stay away from movie spoilers!

Yet another excuse to drink beer

You know, I couldn’t go, and I feel bad.

If you didn’t go, you should feel bad, too.
