4th of July Picnic and Fireworks

  • July 4, 2014 · 7:00 PM

We have a pretty decent group going so I figured we can go ahead and make this official!!

The Plan:

We can all meet up around 7PM. This will be a picnic so everyone bring some food and/or drinks, and maybe a blanket to sit on. We can all enjoy some libations, grub, and a fireworks show which starts around 9:30 PM. After the fireworks are over we can drop some stuff off at home or in your car and then filter into some local bars.

Location:

I was thinking we can meet along the lakefront near the Diversy Harbor. From there we can see the fireworks from Navy Pier and there are a ton of bars nearby. We will be a half a block or so north of the location listed along the lakefront. If you're having trouble finding us call or text me at (872)[masked] and I'll direct you to us.

What to bring:

I'll bring some solo cups and my wine opener so that way we can enjoy our drinks and no one has to worry about cups. Wine, cheese, crackers, meats, beer, cupcakes, etc. Basically if you can eat it conveniently bring it!! That way we can eat everything we can and trash or distribute the remaining grub. As for booze....well I doubt we will have any trouble drinking it down hahaha.

    We are in the grassy area near the theater. I have a blue and white shirt on and I am like 6'3" and blond so I should be easy to spot. We'll have a decent group by the time you arrive.

      Just got here I am near the wall of the theater on the lake side. We can use that Red shack (cactus cantina) as an easy to see meeting area. Its near Fullerton on the trail

      7ish? I really have no clue where the meeting place is (though I used to live in lakeview). I know diversey pretty much but the lake front not so. You can text me[masked] if you want to meetup.

    I decided a combo of the two would be easiest. A picnic with finger food and booze sounds easy and fun!!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
