How far from the Hyatt is the maproom? I will be attending a Cubs game that day, so is it closer to the Hyatt or Wrigley field?

It's in bucktown, so Wrigley. It's not really close to either location.

I think I will try to make it Wednesday. Won't stay late thought, I work on Thursday.

Hey Jon it's actually neither. It's closer to the NW side of the city. But in terms of the Hyatt and Wrigley, it's closer to the ballpark. You would probably be better off getting a cab from the ball park. If you want to take the blue line train from the Hyatt, that might be easier.

For anyone that is interested in coming would it be preferable to meet at Smoke Daddy's or at a common spot that everyone knows of like the Hyatt?

As of right now I am looking at eating at around 5 then going over to Map Room at like 6.5ish I would like to get back to my hotel by around 9pm or so. Thursday is a busy day for staff.

I'd like to go, but if I gotta use the busing system too, I'm gonna have to veto it for myself. I barely understand the rail system as is D:

I will be at the Rosemont station at around 5 to go straight to the Map Room via the Blue line for those that need directions or need transport. We can travel as a motley pack, it is only one train and a quick walk (5min or so).
