    looks like it's possible to get a rental for about $40-45 (+gas). would be more convenient than public transport and probably cost about the same.

    The IBEW building is a nice location for this event. Can't wait for the wonderful coffee aromas wafting about there.

    do we have to pay the $10 meetup admission and the $15 coffeecon admission?

    April 28, 2013

    • Yogee

      There is no meetup fee. When I posted this the Coffeecon tickets were for $10 . I guess they are now for $15.

    • SGFoxe

      thanks

      April 28, 2013

  • SGFoxe

    It is possible to get there by public transportation ... about 1.5 hours from Union Station ... it sounds like SO MUCH FUN

    April 28, 2013

    • SGFoxe

      only prob is that i'm not sure if the connecting bus works on Saturday ... we can meet at Union Station and get a cab at the other end if we agree to take the same train, there's one 8:30 ish that arrives in Naperville an hour later, then there's the connecting bus to Cantara Road which may or may not be running, in which case we can share a cab

      April 28, 2013

    • mayank

      April 28, 2013
