Departing Chandler at 8:30. We'll tour the lake front south of Randolph visiting Gold Star Families Park, and the Balbo Monument (near Soldier Field), and if time permits Northerly Island. Then return north for the feast!

One of the best dim sum spots in Chicago (Rebecca Tung endorsed) -- Ming Hin Cuisine -- opened a branch downtown just off the Lake Front Path. We now have the opportunity to have Chinatown food without suffering through congested streets, pot holes and stop lights to get to Chinatown. To make things even better, this new location is in the middle of a food enclave, right next to Mariano's, Brownbag Seafood, Wildberry Pancakes Cafe, and Au Bon Pain, so if chowing down dim sums family style isn't what you fancy for the day, there are multiple other options. Those of us who choose the dim sum fare will split the check, so please consider bringing some cash to make the transactions easier. 
Bike parking will be at the security of the McDonald's bike center on Randolph ($4 fee) or you can park behind the McDonald's bike center, or at the east side of the Blue Cross Blue Shield building.  If you can't ride with us, then please meet us there. Ming Hin opens at 11am. Address 333 East Benton Place, Suite #300, Chicago.

Thanks to Rebecca for identifying the opportunity and ordering the food!
