Thu July 9 at 12:15 PM, Grant Park
350 East Monroe Street, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
In an attempt to revive the dormant monthly downtown lunch-up, I'm suggesting we go grab some bites at Taste of Chicago.
It's a shadow of what it once was but it's also in the shadow of my office building (metaphorically at least).

I'll figure out where we should meet depending on attendance and stuff closer to Thursday. (I'm putting in the atm that shows up on Google maps for now to fool IRL into accepting it.)

You've got a brilliant career ahead of you in advertising.

Alas, I'll be ~750 miles north of Taste on that day.

It looks like it's not going to rain tomorrow, so I'm going to finalize plans rather than cancel.

Let's just go ahead and meet at the intersection of Monroe and Columbus, near listed in the invite originally.

Restaurants that are going to be there all week are listed here.

Other information from the website:
* Admission: FREE
* Food and beverage tickets are sold in strips of 12 tickets for $8.50, which includes $2.50 charge for Taste amenities. editor's note: *makes jackoff motion in ever-so-slight protest*
* “Taste Of” portions priced at $2.50 or less.
* Food and beverage ticket strips will be available for purchase at the festival.

According to the website the following restaurants will be there on 7/9 in the pop up restaurant sections:
Dinky Donuts, Inc.
Jin Ju Restaurant
Luke's Lobster
Puffs of Doom (editor's note: this listed on the site as "Puffs and Doom", a name I vastly prefer)

My phone number is listed in my profile in case you can't find me or need to check in or just call for the hell of it.

Yes, yes, it was.

Newsflash: Calendars = STILL HARD

i misread your post about pop-ups, and thought those were the ONLY restaurants at taste of chicago.

Like I wouldn't totally eat a lunch of Korean food, lobster, and donuts. You know I would.

I hope someone is helping Mike eat lobster & donuts. I'm going into a non-catered lunch meeting in about ten minutes and am very very jealous.

I think it is just me which is unfortunate for everyone else. (my phone decided to go blank for 20 minutes just now but seems fixed now so if anyone is here, call me)
