What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking is available for free at Jewel. The CTA Roosevelt stop is 4 blocks directly east down Roosevelt, and the Roosevelt bus stops a half block north of Jewel. Be advised, however, the basket weighs 20+ lbs, so driving is the suggested method of transportation.


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Questions will only be taken by using the “Contact the Organizer” link on this event page.
