    Deb, thanks for this incredibly kind offer. I ended up having to work at 8am this morning, so on reflection, I may let myself have one morning before the work week without an early alarm. If I happen to wake up earlier than expected, this actually looks like a fairly transit-friendly foray so I'll find my way. Hope you enjoy it! It looks like all the address information is here on this site so hopefully you've got a good sense of the location.

    Hi all,

    Is anyone planning to drive to Sunday's foray from the city who might have room for a passenger? I'll be coming from Logan Square but am car-free, alas. I'll try the carpool page too but haven't had much luck there in the past.

    Thanks. -Christy Prahl

      I'm in Forest Park 1 block from the blue line if you don't find anyone in the city. You could take the el and we could drive down. I know it's in Lyons - but what's the address?

    I evidently deleted my newsletter - can't find it anyway. What is the address for Sunday Oct 6th foray? Thanks.
