hmmmm...it sure would be nice if someone shared that yummy recipe with the rest of us! That sounds like a great summer BBQ recipe.

I am trying to figure out the menu for our trip. It is a different feeling only planning for 2! We plan on bringing extras to share and/or trade! I am thinking skewered shrimp, mushrooms & peppers. Then burgers or brats. Boy, I am getting hungry! Just need to make sure the protable grill is ready! 16 days and counting! I can't wait!! :lol:

We like busts . . . Captain Andy was just suggesting a "Dirty Hokey Pokey" . . . not sure on that . . .
The Parrot Dice Lounge kinda like a mirage. Here today and gone tomorrow. You should stop by and say hello when visiting Chicago on tour.

There are several of us going to the Cubs game, and, I think, as we did last year, we are gathering at Murphy's well before the game.

gypsygirl60565 said she would do it--originally, bufitonmybmw was putting it together, but given the other circumstances in her life, we are trying to have others take the lead.

And for those going on Thursday, I am putting that list together.

If you are up for a long train ride (about 45 minutes to an hour or so), take the orange line "eL" to Midway and catch the shuttle to Toyota Park. Cheaper and easier than trying to drive or taking a taxi, etc.

Just looked up shuttle and it doesn't run until 6:00. Taxi from Midway should be pretty easy I would expect.

Just checked with my travel agent hubby, he said it'll only take about 20-30 minutes on the "eL" from downtown out to Midway. Getting a cab from the airport to the venue should be easy at the airport.
