It's only six weeks till

Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009 (Labor Day weekend) - noon till ??
It's the same weekend as the Chicago Jazz Festival, which some of us may attend on Saturday. It's easy to get to by commuter train (recommended) or car.

My house, Barrington, Illinois (NW Chicago suburb) - address and directions gladly provided upon request

Food, drinks, fun, silliness, and music with friends old and new. The fourth annual! Spouses/SOs welcome!

What's cooking
Several kinds of excellent sausage, including Andouille, Santa Fe chicken, Polish, California Linguisa, Hungarian, etc. on the grill, ranging from mild to spicy
Numerous side dishes, salads, and desserts, depending on what people bring
Water and soft drinks provided; beer, wine, single malt, etc. is BYOB and share

Music throughout the day and evening - bring records and CDs to play

Free for out of towners; locals are asked to bring a dish (salad, side, dessert) to pass.

I don't know for sure who all's coming, but folks from the local area and across the country have expressed interest, so it'll be interesting.

If you're even thinking of coming (And why wouldn't you? People have entirely too much fun at these things!), please let me know and I'll email you details as the date approaches.

Where to stay
Hampton Inn Deer Park is suggested - it's brand new, opening August 5th, and only $69 a night. The Days Inn here in Barrington should also be available, and there are quite a few other hotels in the area.
