For those of youse who have attended previous BBQs, this Sat-Sun space is just a bit south of Live Wire. Logan Square/Avondale/Irving Park is a good area to look for accommodations (assuming this is set).


Are any of these neighborhoods at all dangerous? What about Belmont Gardens? Like if I had to choose one, which would I choose?


None are dangerous. Belmont gardens I had to look up because I've never heard anyone call it that. But I've only been in Chicago for 43 years, so what do I know? There's not much going on in "Belmont Gardens" but it's a fine place to stay.

You'll have the most fun in Logan Square. It is the hipster neighborhood so people like to gripe about it, but it's full of awesome restaurants and bars, fun places to walk to. It's beautiful too, lots of tree-lined boulevards and old greystone castles. The Wizard of Oz was written in Logan Square. Shel Silverstein grew up there too, as did my Dad, and he's the best.


You should write a damn travel book. That was inspiring.


Yeah Logan Square is your best bet. It's on the Blue Line so you can get there from O'Hare if that's where you fly in, and if there's a Friday deal at IBW there's a Blue line stop maybe 2 block away from there. Other good places to check out are Wicker Park and Bucktown, which are also on the Blue line and next to Logan Square. They're the old hipster neighborhoods people used to gripe about like they do Logan Square but then the yuppies displaced the hipsters and now people gripe about them for different reasons. I also gripe about them. Fun place to spend a long weekend though.

I second Logan Square.

You want to stay along one of the train lines, preferably the blue line because it's the one closest to the venues. If you go north of Montrose on the blue then you'll find yourself in very residential neighborhoods with not a lot going on. Also, if you stay along the blue line, and I assume you're flying into O'Hare, then you can take the train directly from the airport to where you're staying.

There is something Thursday as PEPPER! noted earlier in the thread. However I have t kept up with things lately so I don’t know the details. If nothing is scheduled yet for Wednesday I propose we have a chill pregame hang ‘n bang at some fine establishment like we've done in the past.

It has been a while since we've seen an update. Anything on when the lineups will be released or when passes will become available?

Sunday's line-up is nearly set. Just waiting for consensus about when we'll let the cats out of the bags. I'll stoke the fires on this end a little.

Howdy! Super stoked.

Quick note: It's just Lung, not O-Lung.

My handwriting is fucking AWFUL, so I'm sure it looked weird in my list.

Hope I'll be able to attend this year.
Crazy calendar in June, but hope springs eternal.
Will PrfBBQ.com be the clearing house for tickets/info etc?
Or will EA OR FB be homebase?
