There are 10 of us meeting this Friday for dinner. Four of us live in McHenry, one residing in a hotel on Michigan Avenue, two living on the NW side of Chicago, two in Lake-in-the-Hill, and one in Bourbonnais. The question is "WHERE do we meet?"
We are a special group of people who don't see each other often, but who are looking basically to talk (not too noisy), eat well (but not expensively) and drink. We are trying to find a restaurant/bar that will accommodate the above, but most important, is located either on the Northside of Chicago (we're trying to steer clear of the Loop) or in a North or NW suburb.
Any ideas? We're loud, fun, witty and act like teenagers (we're all over 50!) Don't mind fraternizing with young people either! Just don't want to spend quality time together driving!
Thanks a bunch for your assistance and recommendations.
