This year we will be meeting on Tue, 10 Jul at 5:30 PM at 224 S. Michigan Ave. This is the current location for the Chicago Architecture Foundation Shop and Tour Center. From here, we will take a guided tour of Millennium Park. The title of the tour is Millennium Park Revealed. The tour is a walking tour, lasts 2 hours and the cost is $17. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to 5:30 so the tour can begin on time.
You buy your tickets in advance, online at www.architecture.org. Be sure you are buying the right tour on the right day.
We did a similar tour in Jul 2010 and had a good turnout. Everyone really liked the tour and all said they learned many new things about the Park.
Dinner will be at the Park Grill at 7:45 PM. This is a nice but reasonably priced restaurant that is essentially the end point for the tour.
In case of inclement weather (and the tour is cancelled) we will meet for dinner at 6 PM.
I suggest purchasing your ticket for the tour as soon as you know you will be coming. It is not necessary to RSVP to me for the tour. I do need to know how many people plan to join us for dinner so I can make the appropriate reservations. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me if you plan to attend the dinner and how many people are coming.
