[Chicago-talk] Looking for places for a hackathon

The main question is what is the budget?

There are some places where you can rent a big furnished house for a
weekend. 3-4 bedrooms, a couple of full baths. Having a full kitchen at
your disposal would be nice. If people take shifts in the beds or bring a
bedroll that might suffice.

I have seen some out near Galena. A nice pastoral setting would be an
interesting setting for a hackathon.
