Cool

Cold? Its the only time of year I make sure to carry lots of dollar bills because I feel for the homeless people on the cold windy streets on the way from the train station to navy pier. We will be there!

I'll save my dollar bills for women that are scantily clad and must be VERY cold.

What do you consider cold?

Wind chills in the minus 20 degree range are not uncommon for late January.
Actual temps in the teens are possible, but the typical average is probably right around freezing/32 degrees.

Welcome to Chicago Friend. Look forward to meeting you.
Send me a PM to exchange some more info.

Tim

We should coordinate a meeting location/time. (The bar comes to mind off the top of my head???)

Perhaps you should carry sweaters instead of dollar bills. (for the homeless, not the girls) It seems down right mean asking a guy to stay warm by wrapping-up in such a little piece of paper!!!!

I think in honor of G- (since he likely won't be attending) we should all carry Portuguese flags and and wear black arm bands. Then... drink ourselves silly!

Yes! Could the locals guide this for the rest of us?

(Dang, it's coming up fast, better make plans...)

The South Loop is a quick cab ride from the pier and has quite a few neighbor hood type taverns .

On the pier there is a Billy Goat Tavern, not the original made famous by John Belushi. The original is under lower Michigan Avenue. Also a quick cab ride from the pier.

The original Billy Goat might be a good idea.

Of course there is always Rush Street.
The Rush and Division area is full of crap.

Edit; by crap, I din't mean crappy. Well sort of of crappy. Lots of bars and night life in that area.
Also, the original Billy Goat might be within walking distance of the pier. It depends on how you feel about walking in the winter cold and below street level.

I think something in the pier would be a good idea. Makes for 1 less location to find, and closer to boats.
