A dear friend and fellow has moved to specifically Park Ridge area. Knowing only a couple of people in the area and being fiercely independent is resulting in them dealing with some loneliness. Any suggestions on places to go things to do or must sees in this area on a missionary’s budget that would get her out of her apartment and engaging with others?

@Biill If she has FB, there is a pretty active Lit Chicago group that meets regularly. I am 2.5 hours from Chicago so I am in the group but haven’t been able to meet up with them but it’s one of my goals this year. They all seem super cool.

@Biill it’s tough in the winter. Once the weather breaks there will be lots more options. For now tho how about checking out some of the amazing coffee shops.

@marshaz are there any you would specifically recommend? She is close to Edison park and Norwood park. Lincoln Square, Avondale, Uptown are all places she says she could go without much stress.

@Biill so disclaimer I’m not from Chicago so I only know about when we have visited. So that said .....up near Wrigley Field is a delightful area on N Broadway north of Belmont Ave. Lakeview Rewired, Stan’s Donuts and Coffee and the Coffee and Tea Exchange are all great choices. If that’s not an accessible area for your friend I can ask my niece for more suggestions.
