• First 2022 Montrose Beach Potluck & Volleyball of the Season!

    Needs a location

    This is a continuation of the very successful events from the past 12 summers!

    LOCATION:
    • Montrose Beach on Lake Michigan (PLEASE see the map on the event page or here: chicagoveg.com/potluck.htm) We will meet at a grass area SOUTH of the beach house - located on the east side N. Simmons Drive, between Wilson and Montrose. If you see the big antenna and/or the big white building, just go a little SOUTH and you will find us!
    • If you have difficulties to find us using the map on the event page, you can set your GPS to this coordinates:[masked],[masked],17 or use this google map link: google.com/maps/place/41%C2%B057'50.3%22N+87%C2%B038'06.6%22W where the red marker shows our location.
    • Look for the "ChicagoVeg" sign

    TIMING:
    • Noon - 1:30 PM - Arrive, socialize, frisbee (introductions and start eating around 12:30PM)
    • About 1:30PM - Volleyball begins!

    TRANSPORTATION:
    • Driving: There is a lot of free parking by Montrose Beach, however some of the closer parking may fill up quickly, which is one of the reasons to arrive before noon! :)
    • Public transportation: Several CTA buses stop at Montrose Beach, although it may be a bit of a walk to the picnic (< 1 mile). For more info: rtachicago.org/plan-your-trip
    • Bike: Riding your bike is a good option. Remember, you can usually bring bikes on Chicagoland public transportation.
