Dear John,
 
We are pleased to announce the Triangle Neighbors' Annual Meeting and Election for 2009-'10 Officers is  Wednesday, June 10th at 7PM at a special location, Captain Morgan Club (Addison/Sheffield).
 
The Cubs partnered with Captain Morgan and Harry Caray's Restaurant Group to present the Captain Morgan Club, a year-round restaurant located at the southeast corner of Wrigley Field, near the Harry Caray statue (see below for more details).
 
Captain Morgan Club will provide food and drinks between 7PM and 8PM as we conduct our annual meeting.  If you are not a member, you can join Triangle Neighbors on the spot for $25 (everyone is welcome).  We hope you'll join us to hear about our accomplishments this past year, what's in store with Space Park, and how you can get involved in your neighborhood!

John

Upcoming Neighborhood Events

Belmont - Sheffield Music Fest - 5/30-31 (Sat/Sun)
Let summer begin! Held at one of the city's most eclectic intersections, the 2009 Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest kicks off Chicago's summer's outdoor festival season -- and celebrates its 25th year -- on Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31.

Among the performers will be party bands Modern Day Romeos and Hooked on Sonics as well as Chicago power popsters Dot Dot Dot, and local rockers Mike & Joe, Mr. Blotto and Sixteen Candles. Also set to perform are tribute bands Elevation (U2) and Trippin' Billies (Dave Matthews). Rounding out the lineup will be the pop/rock stylings of Stache, Rock Candy and the Sugarbeats.

PLUS a NEW "Battle of the Bags" Tournament! Brush up on your bean bag tossing skills as the festival will feature two days of play! On Saturday, it's open play for everyone. (There's a $25 fee per two-person team with either advance registration online, or on-site at the fest.) And on Sunday, it's a full day of tournament play with cash prizes for the top team winners.

Triangle Annual Meeting - 6/10 (Wednesday) 
Join your Neighbors at Captain Morgan Club - the new addition to Wrigley Field.  Non-members can join and existing members can renew for 2009-'10 on the spot for $25 at the door.  Drinks and appetizers included from 7pm-8pm.  Free for Triangle Members in good standing.

Chicago Pride Fest - 6/26-27 (Friday and Saturday)
Thanks to the input of residents like you, Northalsted has expanded Pride Fest to a 2-day event before the Gay Pride Parade.  Hosted by (and benefiting) the Northalsted Area Merchants Association -- the same group behind the wildly popular Northalsted Market Days (set for the weekend of August 9-10) -- this equally crowd-pleasing gay and lesbian celebration of community pride will be back bigger than ever in its 6th year!

Pride Fest showcases an eclectic lineup of arts & crafts, food and other vendors. It also features entertainment on two stages including one dedicated to some of Chicago's fine performers in the gay community.

Captain Morgan Club
Info 
Located at Wrigley Field, on the corner of Sheffield and Addison, the Captain Morgan Club is a partnership between Harry Caray's Restaurant Group, the Chicago Cubs and Captain Morgan.  The Captain Morgan Club offers fans an array of exciting and unique experiences, including year-round access to Wrigley Field, appearances by Chicago Cubs players, coaches and Seventh Inning Stretch celebrity performers.  With 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, it is Wrigleyville's largest outdoor café, accommodating over 600 guests.  The Captain Morgan Club is open daily, year-round.  Game tickets are not required for entry.

Every Monday evening at 9pm, one winner at the Captain Morgan Club will be selected to take batting practice on Wrigley Field after the 2009 Chicago Cubs season.  

On Tuesdays at 9pm, one guest will win an invitation for two to the "Party Like the Legend with a Legend" after the season.  

On Wednesday evenings starting at 7pm, guests can enter weekly bags tournaments, run by Players Sports Group.  The cost is $10/team/week.

Additionally, one hour prior to every home Cubs game, one winner and their guest will be selected randomly from the Captain Morgan Club to have their photo on Wrigley Field before the game.  Winners photos are posted on CMC's facebook fan page.  Game tickets are not necessary to win.
