I just want to give you all a heads up that starting tomorrow Meetup is changing the familiar look and feel of all your Meetup group pages. They are implementing a new system that has been in beta testing for some time now. I am NOT a big fan of the new layouts and that's why you have not seen any changes here yet. But starting tomorrow we all are being forced into the new system.
So please be patient as I tinker with the new setup over the next few weeks to get this site appearance as good as possible under the new system. Your feedback is welcome, but I cannot retain the old look and feel of the site. In testing, they have found that some people love the new look while others hate it. For those of us who don't care for it, hopefully it will grow on us. The important thing is that the terrific functionality of these Meetup groups in general should not change.
We are explorers of urban Chicago. We check out neighborhoods, restaurants, parks, historical sites and other notable Chicagoland locations. These are places you might not otherwise travel alone. The convenience of group activities lends itself to lots of new opportunities and friendships. We must be on to something, because people keep coming back!
If you'd like to interact further with your friends from this group, we encourage you to hook up with our Linkedin Group at this link and to be sure to post your other social media contact information in your profile. Many of us have done this and it helps to keep in touch!
Our group founder is a local real estate broker and would love to assist you in buying or selling a home in Chicagoland!
