Grant Park worked well in terms of the space we had, but parking sucked for the people that drive (two people couldn't join us because they couldn't find a place to park...) Also, Grant Park tends to have a lot of events happening, so we might not get so lucky all the time. You'll notice I also heavily favor the Oak Park area. This is because parking is easy, and it is a compromise for the people downtown and the people in the suburbs. It is right on the Blue and Green line and also has some nice soccer pitches with lights, turf and nets that we can arrange to use. But, if the majority of people want to stay closer to downtown, then make your feelings known. We'll go with a majority. Also, if it is a split decision, we'll either rotate locations and/or have seperate meetups going on. If anyone has other great areas I haven't considered, then please let me know!
