Midwest Annual Meeting corrections and additional information

More Book Stores for the Sunday lingerers:

  • Myopic Books on Milwaukee avenue, for those who love a well-appointed used-books store
  • Quimby’s on North Avenue, for comics and zines fans

Both are accessible on the blue line, from the Damen stop.

One Change:
Taxim is not a hotel, it is a restaurant!

Parking tip:
The Newberry will validate parking tickets for the garage at 100 W. Chestnut (entrance on Clark St.). With validation, parking would be $8 for 0-6 hours, $9 for 6-8 hours. That’s probably the least expensive parking nearby.
