What brought you to the event: I've been a dog person my entire life and living in the city makes it really hard to get my normal "dog fix". This was the perfect opportunity to play with a pup, help out a shelter, meet some new people, and drink beers!
Favorite part of the event: Walking our dog "Dorothy" to the park and running around. Also, the pumpkin beer at Village Tap.
Most looking forward to in fall: I'm a Midwestern kid, so I love all the seasons. Fall is no exception. What I was looking forward to the most has already started...FOOTBALL.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: I've always wanted to do Whirlyball.(spelling?) That would be a perfect cityswarm event.
Funny you say that, Eric...we did Whirlyball in March! And will be doing it again soon so stay tuned!

One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: I contemplate going to Lollapalooza and Pitchfork every year but haven't made it to either yet.
