    Meeting spot by the fairgrounds

    Leading an event in the Fairgrounds next Saturday evening, will be done around 7ish. I may not have time to get out there to look, suggestions on a decent meeting spot for after - for around 15-20 people?

    Bars are ok, would just want one that isn't as dark, etc.

    Thx!

    How close do you need to be? If you head out east on University there is both a Legends and an Okoboji Grill. Not sure of distance....maybe 2 -3 miles?

    Prefer a place within walking distance but this can work as a decent alternative.

    Gerri's. Best wings in town and always a friendly face behind the bar. Might be a couple unsightly people around, but they're harmless.

    IF you're looking just to sit, eat and talk then there's Waveland right across the street.

    I will 2nd this. Gerri's DOES have the best wings in town and is within walking distance to the main entrance of the fairgrounds. I highly recommend it for the wings, but will also 2nd the warning of possibly seeing a couple of unsightly people due to the location but that has always added to the entertainment for the group of people that I go with.

    No. When is it and is it in the Fairgrounds?

    It's actually a photowalk in the late afternoon. If there is a car auction there, that could be good.

    I read the Waveland East (or whatever that location was called) closed. I do believe something has gone up in its place.

    Was this open to the public, I haven't seen anything come across your wire for flickr - maybe facebook?

    The East Waveland is closed (though the sign is up on the corner) but noticed last Saturday when cruising by that another restaurant is operating in that space. I think they were advertising prime rib that night, but could be wrong.

    Sounds good! It's a last-minute thing leading the walk, had a request to do it. Still setting up some of the stuff for it.

    You'll still get a good turnout and good location idea!!!

    Be sure to post on Flikr to let others know.
