Downtown Sound Meet & Mingle

The Downtown Sound series has kicked off in Millennium Park, and I thought it would be a great event for us to meet and mingle!

If you aren't familiar with the program, it's basically a free concert series held every Monday evening in Millennium Park. People usually show up with a blanket, snacks, and a bottle of wine to enjoy the warm weather and awesome music.

I really like the band that is playing on Monday, June 24! The Carolina Chocolate Drops are a fun, folky band...upbeat and lively!


Meet me at the bean at 6pm (concert starts at 6:30). I'll bring a blanket but if you can bring one too, please do. Also, bring wine and/or snacks to share!


When: Monday, June 24, 6pm

Where: The bean (just outside Millennium Park)

What to bring: blanket, snacks, wine, disposable cups/plates

    Nice to meet some of you! Too bad about the weather. If you ever get another chance to see them perform, don't miss it. I'm a CCD groupie, and they are playing a sold out show tomorrow in Chicago. Rhiannon has one set of pipes on her and plays a mean fiddle! Be sure to check out their website.

    Well, they're closing the park due to severe weather. The clouds came in out of nowhere!

    If you look away from the bean, toward the park, you'll see me at the entrance. Purple shirt. [masked]

    Hey everyone! The weather looks MUCH better, so this is a go! I'll meet you at the bean at 6pm and we'll find a good spot. I'll update the group for those who can arrive later so you'll be able to find us. See you all soon!

    I have to miss this at the last minute, but will everyone be meeting for another one in the future? They're really fun and I'd love to meet more people in the group!

      Hey Erin! I would definitely be willing to organize more Downtown Sound meetups if there's interest. We'd also love to hear more ideas for other outings if you have them. Let us know!

  • Lorena M.

    Amanda, can you post when and where you will all be? I will not be free until about 6:30pm myself and definitely want to say hi at the least. Thanks and hope to see you tonight!!

    June 24, 2013

    • Amanda P.

      Absolutely! I'll let you guys know where we snag a spot. Definitely stop by and see us!

    Can't come this week, but would love to go to another outing! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

    Hey all, I hear there are thunderstorms expected this afternoon. Is this event still happening?

    June 24, 2013

    • Lorena M.

      Good question, if not the Blackhawks play tonight at 7:00pm to possibly clinch the Stanley Cup! Maybe an indoor MeetUp instead?

      June 24, 2013

  • Amanda P.

    Yes, the event is still on for now, but let's keep an eye on the weather. If it rains all day, the ground may be too wet to sit on blankets. Let's plan on calling a go/no-go by 5pm. I'll post an update.

    June 24, 2013

  • Lorena M.

    If anyone has any requests let me know ill bring some snacks!

  • Deborah S.

    I would really love to come but this week just got crazy. Please plan another outing soon!
