    For those of you on the waiting list or wish to join us, please consider attending the May 15th Meetup at the Garfield Park location. The Uptown location is fairly small and puts a lower limit on the size of each party. The Garfield Park location is bigger and I have a larger reservation. The Garfield Park location is conveniently close to the Green line stop.
