Re: Chicago

Hey Joe.....yes, keep in touch, sounds like you and Ann will be there nice and early. I'm looking forward to the whole thing, but meeting up with other fans is a big part of the fun.

Re: Chicago

Pozest: Are you sure you want to rent a car and drive in from O;Hare? I've not been to Chicago, but I tend not to drive in Big Cities!...there's an airport shuttle for around $28 one way with drop off to most hotels in the downtown area, and good transportation, the El, the bus and lots of taxis. Do...

Re: Chicago

No ..I didn't switch hotels, but I did switch seats for May 5th. A friend of mine from Florida is crazy enough to fly up and back for one show so I sold him my original seat and dug deep into the piggy bank for a seat in row DD...I'm sure it will be worth every penny. I should be getting to the Emba...

Re: Chicago May 6, 2009 Show, Region questions

I'm staying at the Embassy Suites downtown Chicago, on State street. Not exactly cheap, but less than those on the Loop. You also might...

Re: Chicago

Hey Chicago folks......Early entrance to the theater would be great, but I'm still interested in a early meet up....there are some of us who will be arriving late morning, early afternoon, and what better way to spend some time than meeting other L.C. fans...anyone else up for it?

Re: Chicago

Good idea for those living in Chicago....won't work for me. I did check on the Chicago theater website and the box office 'will call" is supposed to open at 2 PM on the day of the concert, at least that's 6 hrs to collect tickets before the show..

Re: Chicago

Congratulations! I'm sure Detroit will be great. I'm excited about Chicago as I've always wanted to visit that city....kinda wish I had more than 2 nights to spend, but my other vacation plans are pretty well set. Thanks for the tips on the food Sorry you won't be able to join us for either pizza or...

Re: hotel

Wow! Good deal on the Hotel, Joe.... I'm too chicken to try Priceline, so will stick with the Embassy Suites.. ..I know you can pick your area, but downtown/loop Chicago has a LOT of hotels..but you did GREAT! And thanks, panjandrum, for the tip about the Pizza place....Chicago Pizza would give Iris...

Re: Chicago

Marie, Dan: the invitation is much appreciated, but I'm feeling the same way as Steve and Ann...AKA bricks in the wall. I'll be flying into Chicago Tuesday morning, likely get to the hotel early afternoon and would feel kind of daunted about tackling the Metra system and getting to Marie's and then ...

Re: Chicago

Let's just drop the wondercookie..and call me Alice...I'm not sure how I came up with wondercookie...must have been the wine. I agree that Miller's doesn't look very inviting at least from the websites....I'd vote for Emerald Loop if i had to choose now, just because it's closer to the Chicago Theat...

Re: Chicago

Hey everybody...I just checked out Monk's website and it looks pretty cool too....Although I love Marie Paris offer of a meet up in her home, I think that would work well for folks driving into Chicago...for those of us flying in and staying downtown..makes sense to stay put. Perhaps Marie's guests ...

Re: Chicago

Sharing a cab would be great! I've not been to Chicago, but have always wanted to go...so LC in Chicago seemed perfect. Good to know there will be fellow fans at the Embassy. I also checked out a place called "The Seneca", billed as a "boutique hotel", on E. Chestnut.....seemed very reasonable...rat...
