    Yes, we are having Pin trading at the Fuddrucker's in Downers Grove, IL on February 17th. Things usually start around 11 am and go until
    3 pm-4 pm. Anyone can come! Come to the restaurant and look for us in their room off to the side. Last month we had a great turnout and expect the same this month.

    Fuddruckers officially opens at 11 am, but we generally get there about 10:30 and go in the side door. We take possession of their side room and typically stay until 3:30-4 pm. We like to eat in the main dining room, but sometimes large groups of people walk over from nearby hotels, and we are forced to eat on the tables with our pins.

    Windy City Pin Traders will be having their monthly pin meet at the Fuddruckers in Downers Grove this Saturady, April 21st. The restaurant is on Findlay(?) near the junction of 355 and 88. The doors officially open at 11 am, but we get there a little earlier and let each other in the side doors. The room can be a bit cold early in the morning, so wear layers. We should have a good crowd, although some people do go to New Jersey for the big pin meet there.

    Unfortunately, the Dayton one is the only one that I am aware of.

    I think I can actually come. Is it okay to come and jut look my first time or do I need to bring pins?

    Sure, it is open to all. Sometimes people who are just there to eat come into the trading area to look around.
