We have similar tastes and I have a gaming groupe with the same liking, but we are southside suburbs.... Orland Park, Tinley Park, Richton Park, and Bloomington areas... Tinley Park/Franklin Park being about center for all of us.
That's not too far from me. I posted NW suburbs since most of the people I know are out that way. I'm located in the city. That's about the same distance in the opposite direction. So totally workable for me if your group has room.
