me, too, after the yesterday's reminder for Mac's show!

Now, I wonder if my Neil Diamond ticket will be waiting for me at home, before I leave for Chicago. :roll:

We are going to Murphys before the game, then to Joe's Bar friday night...planning on heading to Toyota at noon or so Saturday...would love to meet up and meet you guys so we can stay in touch in Kansas City....

Getting on the cell phone list is the easiest way to find the group on Saturday-see page 1. And there will be a few of us at Murphys on Friday-probably all the way in the back, which is where we gathered last year.

The Parrot Dice Lounge kinda like a mirage. Here today and gone tomorrow. You should stop by and say hello when visiting Chicago on tour.

I need info on parties and parking PLEASE

Post by crazyhair » July 22, 2008 12:44 pm

Hello to one and ALL!

I am traveling to Chicago (from Buffalo NY) for the Saturday concert can anyone help me with parking info for the show. If we don't have a car (don't ask yet) what would be the best way to get there? We are staying at the Chicago Hilton on South Michigan, is a taxi a good idea? Or is there a better way?
Second question....WHERE IS THE PARTY??? I know other cities have parties hosted by the local Parrotheads. Is there anything like that going on? Being from Buffalo I do know how to tailgate...anyone have a party we can join? Will bring refreshements to share :P

The easiest and cheapest method is to take the Orange Line "eL" to Midway and catch the shuttle. Taxi is going to be expensive from that location to the venue and getting one back could be interesting. A bunch of us are meeting at the Hampton Inn near Midway Saturday around 11-12 to caravan and tailgate. Hope this helps. The midwesterners will be more help. I'm Southern with several Chicago trips under my belt. :D

Ok, heard an ad on the radio this morning-one of the ticket brokers is selling concert tickets at $30 below face, or so the ad says. :o

Thanks everybody,
and Diane thanks you too.

Very slight chance that the Keets and I will make it, but Diane will stay in FL with her Mom.

2) I did see lots of Potties
3) The easiest place for a drive-by merger for Hampton Inn folks is a vacant Krispy Kreme on Harlem/ 5640 S Harlem Ave Summit, IL 60501 about a 1/2 block South of Archer on the West side of the St.
Directions from Hampton Inn:
Cicero North to 63rd. Left on 63rd to Harlem. Right on Harlem to the Krispy Kreme.
Another Option for ease of use:
Ciceroo North to Archer. Left on Archer to Harlem. LEft on Harlem. Right hand turn into vacant lot. Harlem is a busy st and making a left on Harlem during this time could be a tough one.
K, so which is easier for the "outtatowners"??? Sounds to me like a right merger would be better. But what do I know... :lol:
