Chicago?


Recommended Posts

It is a little ways off, so we may be able to get a group of people here to meet up in the bleachers since it is general admission there. I think that would be fun! 

It's not hard to find things to do in Chicago, great food everywhere. Lots of outdoor things if the weather is nice. And if it's not a nice day, Field museum, Art Institute and Shedd Aquarium are near each other. Those are all awesome.

Man if I wasn't such an anti-City bumpkin...  LOL.    (And as a non-rooter-of-hometeams myself, [Go Penguins!] I'd be totally cool with you're choice of red.)   

 

I have absolutely no advice on where to stay though, for me, anything east of 294 is like 'meh'.    If something gets pulled together though, keep this thread updated.  The Chicago peeps check in on it pretty decently. :)

@starpuck, you can totally drive to rosemont, take the blue line to Addison and the Addison bus to the park. No city driving necessary. Or, there is even a pace bus straight from Schaumburg. No excuses. Or you can park at my place and we can walk over. :)

As for where to stay, I recommend airbnb. It's generally less expensive, and if you get a group of nerds together you can even split the cost. You don't have to be right near the park; anywhere near the red line will be fine for what you want to do.

Howdy ya'll, I'm from the south suburbs of Chicago, currently residing in Crestwood. There's some nice wooded trails near me! :D

Alternatively, I'd love to go hiking on the weekends when the weather gets nicer. I'm too afraid to go alone so if anyone's game for something like that it would be cool!

I don't know if any monks are keeping an eye on this thread, or if anyone's interesting in fighting or medieval military tactics. But if you are, my martial arts sala is having a workshop on grappling and dagger fighting at the weekend after next: Hugging the Lion, Slicing the Griffin

Sounding off from Wheaton, IL. (Suburb about 30 minutes from the main Chicago city, otherwise known as "Chicagoland."). Anyone still active around here?

Hey, welcome to NF! There's a few of us in the greater Chicagoland area active on the forums, and there's also a lively facebook group. PM me and I can add you to the FB group.
