There's not already enough going on in Downtown Tinley on Tuesday nights? How about a different night, or a location that's already so incredibly crowded. Where are citizens supposed to park? It's already a zoo down there on Tuesdays...we purposely stay away! Sorry to miss a great event.

Jeeez...sorry but I'm pretty sure the heading above asks if readers are planning on attending. And last I checked, we still do have a free country and the ability to express our thoughts.
