Anybody interested in a TWoPcon at Brookfield Zoo?

I'm in for Brookfield, too. When? Late June is best for me.

I have plans for the first and last weekends in June but am free the rest of the month.

Anybody want to throw a Saturday date out there?

Lincoln Park! Lincoln Park! It's free (well, except for $10 parking) and waaay easier to traverse. I love Brookfield, but it is massive. Oh, and for akg coming from out of town, it's easy to get to after getting off the South Shore.
That said, for those who can't do Brookfield, there's always a Lincoln Park Zoo Invasion....

I take back what I said about the last weekend in June. My plans are actually for the 4th so I'm free any weekend in June except the 5th (of june, the 1st weekend). jennifuh just rejected the entire month, however. Any other thoughts on the 12th, 19th, or 26th?

Wait. Do they have alcohol at either zoo? This could be a problem.
Posted May 12, 2004 @ 3:21 PM
I checked their website and can't find anything on their policy for carry in food or alcohol. I've always brought my own lunches and beverages, but I never tried bringing in alcohol before since I usually go with my kids.
I know that I've brought my own cooler in before, but I can't remember if they checked it for alcohol.

Brookfield Zoo sounds great (easier to park), but Lincoln Park would work too. I have a friend who works at Brookfield; I'll inquire as to the alcohol carry-in policy.
Also, any Bunim-Murray whores such as myself up for an impromptu RW: San Diego viewing party some random Tuesday? Might be easier to schedule than a weekend. Anyone know of a bar in the western burbs that would be willing to show reality TV instead of sports?
I'll continue to check back, sounds like summer is tricky for most everyone.

as an employee of BZ, I can confirm that they do sell beer (miller products) at several locations throughout the park. i know they also sell some wine at the sit-down restaurant near The Living Coast (south american penguin/fish/etc. exhibit). technically you are not supposed to byob, but if you smuggled some jack to add to our pepsi products i don't think anyone would be the wiser (just don't tell them an employee told you it was ok). you can always tailgate with a cooler in the parking lot, just hide from security a la a high school party should they cruise by.
if you want to get really schnazzy you can always book a party through the events staff (anything from wedding-reception-style to outdoor bbq) in which case you'd have a multitude of boozing options. that'll cost you though.
if anyone is interested in post-zoo pubbing (hmm...if i spelled that with one "b" it'd be "pubing") i could make some suggestions too. any other questions about zoo stuff just give a holler.
ETA: lookee me! methinks i just became a channel surfer?!

ETA: jennifuh, you mentioned a play in DG on the first two weekends of June. What is it?

fuzzbites, are you me? Because I say this all the time. And no pubing at our Con, please!
col1999, this is it. Let me stress that the second week will probably be better and that this is far from professional ;-). Two days to go and I have nothing to wear for Act 3 (sorry, no nudity).
ETA: took out link. If anyone is interested in some community theatre, email me.
