I don't know where I went wrong with my daughter. I offered to take her to St Louis as she will be 21 on the day the Big Top and Santa come to town, all expenses paid. She says she can't miss class the next day. I even tell her she can just crash in the back seat and I'll get us home the next morning (about a 3 hour drive) then off to college she can go for an agonizing day. No she can't. Truth is, I really wanted to go to St Louis. Darn!!!

What's wrong with kids these days? LOL

Does anyone know if Toyota park has any info on parking costs or RV parking yet? I remember they had something on their website last year, but I cant find anything now.

my guess is that they haven't finalized all of that yet--though I think meischen found the expanded parking spaces on Ticketmaster. Toyota Park will get a whole lot of stuff up on their website--just hasn't happened yet.

Ryan there is no info on TP yet. THe options appear when buying your tickets. All of the prices did go up I believe. I know the Premium Parking I get multiple spaces of went up 30% over last year and is costing me alot.

Any hotel in the area with a shuttle would more than likely make it available to a large group needing it to get to and from a concert with enough warning.

RV parking I believe was like $250 a day last year.

Sounds good. Glad you decided Chicago. I still would like to go to Indy (early kick-off for summer). Jim got the weekend off, everything fell into place but the other peeps. You two or 8 want to go?
