A few things I want try and help with:

Alsip is a ways from the venue... It's an OK part of town...
You figure you're at 127th St., and venue sits at approx. 191st st.
Cicero is right there, Harlem is west of Cicero.

There is also a Comfort Inn or Quality Inn in Orland Park on 159th Street.
I have stayed there before, and it's pretty nice. All hotels/motels will jack their prices up that night/weekend due to demand....

If you're staying downtown... Check out a bar called Trader Todds on Sheffield (?) just off of Belmont. They are a totally PH friendly bar, and probably have a bus going to the show. It's also going to be packed, so I would call on that soon. If nothing else check it out, and have a drink there. I know that have pictures all over the place of their trips to Key West!

Hope this helps somebody out... Good luck.

Add me to that Cubs list--Q&S and I are in Section 208
And Nicki is my +1 and I am her +1 so those can be eliminated I guess!

Not to thread jack but I can only hope people are buying the BN wristbands. That coupled with the secret handshake will identify us to each other. When we gather en mass solidarity we will be virtually unstoppable!

I will have several. They are close friends and wanting to see what I get so damned excited about. I tell them its all a state of mind and they assume I'm doing drugs of some sort. It'll be interesting. Hopefully I can make some converts.

THese poor souls have no idea what they are in for but I hope its more than they expected.

Tinley Ticket

Just for fun, I went back to the Ticketmaster site - nothing was available for a pair, but it did come back with a single seat in Section 101, row S. I thought I'd throw it out there in case someone was looking for a single.
