    Glad to see you guys are excited that we are here! I am actually the General Manger here at our Chicago Location. We are currently working on our calendar for events for the upcoming year, but certainly plan to host events of that nature.

    Nice! That will be a great addition to the car life in Chicago (which as you know, can be comatose at time :)).

    Oh very cool! I live about a mile away from there, and ride my bike past there quite often! I will definitely come check out any public events you guys have! Is it public to tour the garage?

    I worked at 2500 for almost ten years. Learned much that helped me to be on my own since 1979, but I had an eye for things all my life...(Inside comment.) 2500 most have sold land to someone. 2500 owned all that area. That was Waveland Golf Course years ago. 2500 purchased all that land back in the late 50s or early 60s.

    First, great to have CCG in the neighborhood. My daughter trains at IK, so I love the back space away from most of the kiddies. That back lot looks like it could host some great events. Second, FWIW, if anyone is going to visit, avoid Western like the plague, they just started construction at the Belmont/Western intersection. Third, in reference to Norbert's comment, I grew up 2 miles from here and still live in the area. I thought 2501 owned the land until the 1980s or 90s. I believe the current owners took over around 2009. Could someone clarify the history of the space? And fourth, it will ALWAYS be Waveland for us locals. :)

    Sorry for the lateness of my reply, as i don't get on here much. Going through and noticed you guys talking about 2500 block of Bradley Place.. Isn't the WGN Studios? My dad had worked there for over 35 years, thats how that address caught my eye... I believe WGN's address is 2501 W Bradley Pl....

    As for Waveland, played at the Golf Course a few time down at Irving Park Rd and Lake Shore drive on the lake......
