About the event
LOCATION: • Montrose Beach on Lake Michigan (PLEASE see the map on the event page or here: chicagoveg.com/potluck.htm) We will meet at a grass area SOUTH of the beach house - located on the east side N. Simmons Drive, between Wilson and Montrose. If you see the big antenna and/or the big white building, just go a little SOUTH and you will find us! • If you have difficulties to find us using the map on the event page, you can set your GPS to this coordinates: 41.9639722,-87.6373554,17 or use this google map link where the red marker shows our location. • Look for the "ChicagoVeg" signs.
TIMING: • Noon - 1:30 PM - Arrive, socialize, frisbee, then introductions and start eating (around 12:30PM). • About 1:30PM - Volleyball begins!
TRANSPORTATION: • Driving: There is a lot of free parking by Montrose Beach, however some of the closer parking may fill up quickly, which is one of the reasons to arrive before noon! :) • Public transportation: Several CTA buses stop at Montrose Beach, although it may be a bit of a walk to the picnic (< 1 mile). For more info: rtachicago.org/plan-your-trip • Bike: Riding your bike is a good option. Remember, you can usually bring bikes on Chicagoland public transportation.
