Great ideas Diana! I really like option 1!
I just posted in the potluck meetup, but I will check if I will be back in town that weekend of July 6th. I can change my week going to michigan and just go earlier in the week before July 6th!! I just need to be there for the 4th!

July 7 works for me. It will probably just be me, as the fella is not that much of a foodie. :)

Yay for the food crawl!! Hector & I are really looking forward to it!!
What time should we start & where should are meeting location be? Dimo's Pizza, I believe it the farthest north, so we could start there and work our way south? How does that work for everyone? Dimo's opens at 11 AM on the weekend.

Hooray for July 7th! I'm not sure yet whether Mike will be joining, but I am definitely in.

I'm fine with going in any order, Dimo's sounds great to start.

Any thoughts on what the "must order" items are at the other places?

I'm thinking the Buffalo Tofu at Pick-Me-Up and the Milkshakes at Chicago Diner are some of the menu highlights.

Maybe at Native Foods we could try a few appetizers, like nachos or jackfruit fritters or saigon roll. I've never been to Pick Me Up or Kitchen 17 so I'm looking forward to trying both!

I think appetizers at Native Foods is a great idea! I also LOVE their new Radicchal Farm Salad, which technically is an entree but would make a fantastic appetizer if shared.

Appetizers at Native Foods sounds great & perfect for sharing. I also love their salads, and could easily be spilt.
I have never been to Pick Me Up either, so I am not sure what to order there.
For Kitchen 17, I spilt their tomato & cucumber salad with my parents and it was really good. Their sweets are good too. The hummus is good too!!

I just saw that the Cubs have a game starting at 1:20 at Wrigley Field, so now I'm actually wondering if later might be better? If we met up at 1:00 then everyone would be on their way INSIDE the stadium instead of at the restaurants? Just a thought... I really have no idea whether vegetarian-friendly restaurants are impacted at all by Cubs games. Lol.

11 or 12 totally works for me though if that's best for everyone else. Mike said the Cubs are pretty bad this year so the turnout at games has been much lower than in better years.

I know that Dimo's can get crowded right before/after the game. I think if we went at 11 we should be fine, but if later for starting I would say 1/1:30.

Hi Ya'll,

Oh my gosh, I hate being the flaky one. We have friends coming in (didn't know before yesterday) for the weekend, and the only time we can see them is Sunday. So I might be good to come to the food crawl, I might have to leave early, I might not make it, etc.

I'll play it by ear, if that's all right with everyone.

If you don't think Dimo's would be too crowded, should we try for 11 then? Jeni - you pick :-)

Hey all - at the Picnic, some of you were interested in entering The Good Bean giveaway on my blog. Here's the details!

Please note that not all the bars are Vegan, but the winner gets to choose their flavors and the Trailmix flavor is vegan.

So sorry I didn't see your message sooner, Jeni!

Any chance you'll be making it to the bookclub this Saturday?

Also, I'm free Thursday night if you wanted to grab dinner anywhere downtownish - maybe Karyn's Cooked, the French Market, Native Foods, etc.

Tweet me if you're free that night! I'm also free Monday night if you'll still be around then.
