I have this idea of renting a place for everybody to stay in the neighborhood ( or it's vicinity) where young Tom Waits was hanging out and playing back in the early 70s, so all the twiffers can camp together during the meetup in July,I came across a website with short term rentals, like 2-3 days and some of the places are close to the TOM AREA ( or within short public transportation ride or longer walk...like to Minnehaha Falls or so :whistle:... ( not really))

Whaddayathink?

We should have the meet on the same weekend Hanne leaves, that way we don't need to drive to Chi-town 3 times. Its easily a 3 hour drive from Indy traffic can make it more or less. that Friday is July 27th and Hanne leaves that Monday. I will probably stay on with her til Monday.

I agree, the last weekend would be the best. I'll stay until tuesday actually, but I don't mind being there alone for a day, I'll probably want to do some last minute shopping :whistle:

I love Ina's idea as well :)

Sounds great-- we can give Hanne a proper send-off! :D
Not that we'll want to see her leave..... :(

so, is everybody driving in or what? Is there parking? I'll need to decide. Driving - One day there, one day back, parking?, traffic, constantly getting lost (directionally challenged :oops: ) won't need the car anyway? Driving + maybe a little cheaper, we might need the car? I can bring beer :)

Driving in Chicago can be horrendous, and parking can be even worse. I might fly or take the Megabus-- or I might end up driving after all, depending on what will work best at the time. Right now it's too soon for me to decide.

Yes, too soon to decide. I'd be leaning towards not driving the car too unless it's really needed though. Or maybe it happens to be a relatively easy access part of town, if there is such a thing. What part of the town is this by the way/

It looks like we have a date set! :clap:

As far as driving and parking situation I can repeat after Mel, it is horrendous...the Belmont/Sheffield area is densly populated as it is, and this weekend Cubs are in town! :twisted: .... that needs an upgrade from "horrendous" to "bloody hell" driving and "fucking bloody hell" parking situation. Paddy was here for Cubs game and saw the madness with his very own eyes. I would say driving into town and leaving it will be a very difficult mission.
