Starting with:

I achieved my every goal: had a shake, bought pirogi shaped soaps for my bestee, bought boozes not legal in Chicago, met someone new (HI Sarah the architect from Washington!) and more.

If a security guard is available, we may stop to see this landmark on the return trip:  https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160609/east-side/this-tiny-secret...

Grant Park has been completely fenced off for Lollapalooza, so let's mee on the north side of the Field Museum (https://goo.gl/maps/LFgMAsBPsc62).  

If you are coming from the LFP, you can exit N. or S. of the Shedd Aquarium to get there.  If you are coming from W. of Lake Shore Drive, I recommend the underpass between 11th St. and Roosevelt Rd.

Some riders will be staying late to catch the Village People show, but there will be a group heading back at 4:00pm from Whiting if anyone wants to join a convoy.

Wondering the same as everyone, is Buckingham for sure the start?  I feel like we overlapped before, and somehow it wasn't a problem. We met along a fence or something. True?
