“I'm gonna be in Chicago! Taking a long weekend type vacation trip with my kids (16 & 18) we're going to be in town for a few days starting the 18th.
Wounded Knee and Dhutch I've already talked with and WK is planning to drink most of the alcohol in Chicago the evening of the 19th.
Who can join us - all are welcome (regardless of political persuasion)
I'd love to meet any of you that can get there.”
“Deep Dish Pizza!”
talked to dhutch already.”
“Anyone in the area on the 19th that wants to meat up for dinner, we be at the following:
730 N Rush St
Not sure of the time yet, however I would think it will be around 6 or so.”
we had beers
we had pizza
we had fun

Good to see you again! Much fun, too short. Hope the rest of your weekend was fantastic!”

“Build it and they will come! Yo bear!”
“Ok trips back on. Should be end of March beginning of April.
I will be working in the West Chicago area.
Any areas to avoid?
I can stay in St. Charles/Geneva, Napierville, Carol Stream. Which are nicer, and which are easier to get into downtown.
Can i take Hwy 64 - North Ave into downtown easily?”
“Naperville is probably best. 88 to 290 in to Chicago. Rte 64 is a bind with lights every 1/2 mile.”
“You might try the bus lines.”
“Swing and sway with the CTA.
Fun all the way.”
“I would stay in St. Charles or Geneva. Lots of nice restaurants/bars in their downtown areas (especially St. Charles). You can take the Metra from Geneva into Chicago.”
