    because bringing a stupid monkey would be one less hand i could use to hold an ice cold overpriced beer, i am, instead wearing a shirt with the stupid monkey on it on saturday. so, saturday morning, look for the dipshit in the stupid monkey shirt. i just posted a picture of the shirt to the meet up for reference. :)

      Yesssssssss! This will be my first time seeing her. So excited.

    hi amanda! awesome that you're in the nyc music group. are there a lot of you coming for the fest?
    anyway, the festival is off of the green line in a place called union park. if you are staying in a place that has access to the "el" it will be fairly easy to get to. the Ashland bus would be a good way to get to the fest, too, if you are staying near Ashland (1600 west).
    there's a few places to eat just outside the festival grounds, too. i'm not sure that you can come and go, though.

    it *will* be scorching hot, but there will be ice cream, heh. lemme know if you guys want info on where to stay. side note, check out airbnb.com or vrbo.com, and you can stay in an apartment or condo that someone is renting out! usually cheaper than a hotel with all the perqs of being at a home!

      Thanks so much for the directions and web addresses. At this point it looks like just us (boyfriend & me) and two others. Someone mentioned us getting a hotel room and bringing sleeping bags. I may bug you again to make sure we're going with a hotel that will indeed be convenient to the transportation and where we need to be - is that okay?

      February 28, 2013

      sure thing!
