That's about ten miles west of where I grew up, a bit of countryside outlying the suburbs, looks pretty. It looks like a car is required; it's not off the L-train from O'Hare to downtown, but within striking distance of the city. With a little luck on the health front, a good time should be had by all.

July 2021, that is your prediction of when Covid will be controlled enough to hold events like this. I applaud your faith and really hope you are correct.
I do really like the choice of venue as any Westin I have stayed at were all nice hotels for a reasonable rate. I wish all of you a great time and be safe.

If it happens, I'll attend. It's now only 45 minutes from home instead of 50 minutes...nice!
To clarify my previous post.

Since it's so close to home I would attend only to check out all of the vendor's tables and perhaps buy a pipe or two. Wearing a mask and walking around looking at the vendor's tables IMO is not much different than going to the grocery store or big box store. I would not attend the dinner or any other event that requires me to remove my mask.

The way the vaccinations are going...we'll still be wearing masks in August. 😷
