The wolves? Is that hockey? I thought we had the Blackhawks.
I like the idea of getting together so we can talk and get to know each other. What areas of Chicago are you all at, and maybe we can figure out a point in the middle to meet. I am north, by Great America.
Downtown would be nice, because we could do more.
I am in Evanston, which is MUCH closer to downtown than that near-wisconsin-border where it seems everyone else is. (but don't let that stop a get together. If meeting up north would work out better, I'll commute [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img] )
If the weekends of the Taste are no good (because of the holidays and whatnot), we could always go to Dave and Busters, or the Hard Rock Cafe, or to Navy Pier. I don't work at all on the weekends, and I'm not going on vacation anytime soon ( [img]images/smiles/icon_sad.gif[/img] ), so all my weekends should be free.
or, I'm definately a beach bunny, so this might be a stretch, but if anyone wants to head out and just enjoy the sun, I'm up for that too. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
I'm up by Great America also, actually closer to Wis, but I wouldn't mind coming into the city as long as we can meet somewhere that's accessible by public transportation. I absolutely DREAD driving into the city.
OK, Curlypuddin, Nappybychoice and I can carpool, so let's pick a place, day, time and go down town. I've never been to Dave and Busters, or Norsdtroms. Just today I was thinking the beach would be great now that it's getting so hot. If we go to North Street Beach we could park at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
I'm supposed to be going out of town during that time!! Darn....maybe the next gathering? We just moved here, and I really hope to get down to Chicago soon and see some sights. I'd love to take my little boy to the Zoo!! Keep us posted on the plans. I'm just right over in Grayslake! [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
SuziQ, you haven't missed anything yet because we haven't picked a date. Well, lets pick a Saturday, say in July or August, then go from there. I am free every Saturday in July and a few in August. Anyone else have a much more specific schedule or date?
The idea for going to the Taste was great, but I'm not very interested in going. The prices are a bit high, the days way too hot for me, and I don't like standing in line or wading through thousands of people.
