Looking for a unique/ unconventional event space...

Hi all-

We're looking for an event space; around 4000 square feet for around 150 people. We've searched quite a bit, but haven't found the ideal space just quite yet. It's for a wedding, and we're trying to avoid the "standard" wedding venues (I know that's terribly vague). Anyways, if anyone knows of a venue or a resource to look at, it would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Kevin

  • I was just reminded of the wedding that we attended at the Chicago Historical Society. It was very interesting. I also saw that there was a function at the Mariano's on Halsted and Monroe. Unusual but beautiful setting for a smaller gathering like a rehearsal dinner. I love weddings. As Gary requested...please let us know your choice(s). Good luck.

  • Just wondering Kevin if you picked a place?

Tuesday: Elect Maureen Sullivan 11th Ward Alderman

Tuesday is the election where UC/UV and LI will vote as the 11th Ward for the first time. The best candidate for the 11th Ward and especially its northern reaches is clearly Maureen Sullivan - a community activist endorsed by University Village's Dr. Michelle Fennessy, the public health activist whose successful work with cleaning up area viaducts is very well known in the community.

Maureen and Michelle share an interventionist outlook on community affairs and they don't let gridlock and finger-pointing get in the way of results.

About Maureen:

Some quick videos on the Sullivan campaign and what it's about.
