    What a better way to celebrate the day after Tax Day, than fried chicken from Harold's, which we'll take out and transfer over to Half Acre Brewery where we can sit down and enjoy a delicious fried chicken meal while drinking some of Half Acre's tasty brews.

    Time: ~6:15pm at Harold's, meet up shortly after this at Half Acre

    well there are others for the next time, like Atlas, Revolution, etc etc etc. My guess is from what I've heard, I'll be going back to half acre, we'll make sure you're around for that one.:)

    As stated, I haven't been to Half Acre but along the same lines, I was to Atlas Brewing www.atlasbeercompany.com which had some very tasty beers as well as small sandwiches for $3 per, one was duck confit and the other a pork rillette, both were delicious and at only $3 per a bargain.

    Atlas brewing looks good. Often when in an unfamiliar place we'll search for a brewery. Not only because we like well-crafted fresh beer but because it's a great excuse to have a direction to head. Often the breweries are located in very interesting areas away from the typical touristy junk. Sometimes the brewery IS touristy junk, but generally they are great and we almost always find unexpected surprises along the way.

    There was live bluegrass music, chicken was delicious as were the beers, some new faces as well, 12 people I'd guess showed up, sorry you couldn't make it!

    Next current meetup in the Chicago area is scheduled for Friday June 7, see: http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/jun-7-2013-chicago-area-russian-dinner-milepoint-meetup-northbrook-il.60988/

    By downtown do you mean the Loop proper or neighborhoods within Chicago?
