It sounds silly, but who wants to go to the Zoo?

How about we meetup for an old fashioned sort of school trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo. It's free. There are cute animals. Maybe we can get drinks and dinner after?

    Jennifer, sorry about the meeting place. I went to where the buses where but missed you, so did the zoo anyway. Had a good time, Scrolled down everyone;s replies guess I wasn;t the only person that missed you, and now I see why there was no balloon. And Kurt don;t know what you are saying about gang-bangers? Kathleen is right, I think we should all wear a certain color shirt and pants. like jeans or tan pants. In any event it was a really great idea. Please consider a downtown location next, like the bean? That could be fun. or Cultural Center, or how about brunch, lunch or a dinner? Hope we can meet again. Very good idea Jennifer.

    Did you all know the Chicago Summer Fest is happening in the same area this weekend? This is going to be fun!

    June 26, 2014

  • Linda L.

    Just happened to think, since there is a large amount of us going, maybe Jennifer in case some are late you could post your phone number so we can find you at the zoo. Just a thought.

    June 25, 2014

  • Linda L.

    I agree, just the zoo sounds fine to me.
    Also taking #151 bus, but from downtown, anyone else doing that?

    June 25, 2014

  • Jennifer

    Also I don't mind walking around after but Navy Pier seems really far and I am really lazy.

  • Linda L.

    ok the main entrance on Stockton Dr. is that Stockton and Webster near the Farm in the zoo? I'm taking the bus and its say it stops West gate. I never did this except by car along bit ago.

    June 21, 2014

  • Marilyn

    can we all do a botanical garden one too.... never been there

    1 · June 19, 2014

  • Eilene

    And if the weather is good, hiking down the beach, around the park, et al, always good....have never noticed any "gangbangers " when I've been there so let's hope it was a one time event.

    June 19, 2014

  • Steve

    Good idea ! The indoor Lincoln Park Conservatory is great, too.

  • Leann

    I've got a root canal that morning, so don't wait for me if I'm late. Sounds like fun though--thanks for organizing!

    June 19, 2014

  • Brandon T.

    I've lived in Chicago for over six years and I have yet to go to the zoo, so I would really enjoy this

    June 19, 2014

  • Eilene

    Nothing silly about it....could do a hike around Lincoln Park either before and/ or after the zoo...work up an appetite for an early dinner perhaps.
